We spent a day exploring Table Mountain with Binny. In the morning she asked what we'd like to see and tailored a route that would take in the views from both sides of the mountain in clear weather (we got lucky there and it was spectacular!). Binny knows the mountain inside out and we learnt a lot about the geography and biology of the area. She set a comfortable pace and we had a really lovely day -- thanks Binny :)

Just back from Cape Town where I enjoyed 3 outings with Binny. We walked on Table Mountain, down at Cape Point and up in the Silvermine reserve.All quite different but each time we had a great walk , fabulous views and were lucky with the local fauna and flora. Binny is well organised ( drinks , snacks, binos. etc), the personal pick up service is very nice. Its like having a day out with a friend who just happens to be very well informed about the area, easy to chat to about all sorts of things. I shall hope to walk with her again next time I'm in CT

Went hiking with Binny, her husband and their 2 dogs (and 1 other tourist). Had a lot of fun taking the beautifull Nursery ravine up to Maclears Beacon and coming down Platteklips. Binny knows a lot about the environment, i learned a lot bout Cape Town as well! Also had a great lunch & snacks during the trip, plus she picked me up & brought me back to my house!. Totally value for money!

I had an amazing climb to the Table Mountain, thankfully to Berlinda and her two dogs. Berlinda is not an ordinary guide- she never cancels a walk, despite the weather or if someone is with uncomfortable shoes :). I learned so much from her and until now when I am looking at my pictures I remember the name of the flowers and trees, she named. Moreover, you have to taste the banana cake she makes as a retreat once you get the top- ohhh...Enjoy as well the free hot roboos tea, she has in store for her clients. Berlinda, you made my stay in Cape Town. Thank you, indeed!

Thanks Elena, Glad you enjoyed our hike. I just want to mention that if someone doesn't want to walk in the rain I would never force them to hike. I am happy to walk in any weather and tailor the hike to suit conditions. With Elena we did a wonderful walk on a sheltered side of the mountain. However I do not charge a cancellation fee if its pouring with rain, and that is not your idea of fun!

I spend a beatiful day with Binny Ridgway and her dog Judith on Table Mountain. She is very professional and very friendly, going with her was a good way to enjoy the wonderful places and landscapes of Table Mountain National Park.
