“Platteklip Gorge Hike”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

It was so nice to hike up Table Mountain with Margaret. She was punctual, friendly, flexible and knowledgeable, and involved the children in a fun, informative manner. Margaret helped us choose the best way for our family of three generations to enjoy Table Mountain, and it was such a comfort to have her navigate to avoid lines and keep on the correct trail. I would highly recommend the experience of Table Mountain up close and personal, and doing so with the capable guidance of Margaret Curry of Table Mountain Walks!

“GREAT walk with Margaret”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

There were 3 in our group. One person hiked up the gorge with Margaret, the other two met the hiking group at the top where we all continued with a combination nature trail/hike loop trail (about one hour), then took the cable car down together. The very athletic people in the group were very satisfied, as were the less athletic folks who prefer to talk habitat and birds. Margaret provided excellent commentary as needed. She was also amazingly accurate with her predictions of how long various segments would take, despite having folks at different ability levels on the hikes. AND, when one of our group mentioned needing something outside of the hiking time, Margaret went out of her way and dropped the item off at the hotel. That was VERY cool of her.

We HIGHLY recommend Margaret's "Table Mountain Walks". She'll personalize the walk to fit your party.

“Skeleton Gorge”
Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

We joined Margaret for this walk up Skeleton Gorge to the top of Table Mountain.
Margaret is a great guide with good knowledge of the local bird life and flora. The walk is a good one avoiding all the crowds who plod up the popular routes. As you would expect the views are fantastic but they really did exceed our expectation, thanks Margaret for giving us a glimpse of your world.

“Stunning Views”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Right from when we were picked up we enjoyed the tip up and down Table Mountain! Margaret was knowledgeable and made us feel very comfortable. Its a good walk with great views all the way up, then at the top the views were amazing! We were really pleased with oursleves after the walk and felt we really deserved the few glasses of wine we had that evening! I would thoughly recommend climbing table mountain and having Margaret as your guide.

“great experience”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

My wife and I hiked the relatively difficult Skelton Gorge route with Margaret. Right from the correspondence in preparation to the hike to the hike itself and even the administrative arrangements, Margaret provided a first class experience. She displayed excellent knowledge of the local lore, flora and fauna and geared her presentation to the interests of the particapants, myself being interested in the local lore and my wife in the flora and fauna. She is very professional and personable and well liked by all the locals involved in Table Mountain. When my borrowed old car 's battery failed, due to me leaving the lights on, she promptly arranged for some staff from the cable car to push start the car. All in all, the entire experience was one of the highlights of our three week trip.
