Binny is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and personable. She picked us up from our hotel and tailored the hike to the experience we were looking for. She carried extra water/food supplies in case we were dumb enough to not bring enough of our own (yes, many make that mistake!). She knew how to keep a good pace and spent time answering our questions and/or filling us with useful facts about the fauna/flora of table mountain. I highly recommend her!! Oh yes, the price was very fair :)

Had a lovely tour guide, I wouldn't recommend walking a route like we did alone plus also we would have never found such a beautiful route. We saw all the different views from all areas of table mountain including many of the bays, cape point, the peninsular and of course the city bowl. In all a wonderful trip and I would defenately recommend it.

Chose Binny because of her excellent TA-reviews and was not disappointed. First some e-mail communication where she responded very quickly and helped me choose my hikes. I ended up with full day Skeleton Gorge to Maclears Beacon, descend Platteklip Gorge and a half day Lion's head. Binny picked me up at my B&B exactly on time. She also advised by e-mail what to pack/water/etc.

She is knowledgeable about the mountain, animals and other things there. She adapts to your pace, so that you will not get too tired or feel that you are being rushed. I was the only hiker on the full day hike, but she was an excellent guide and perfect to chat with during the hike. She also carries extra water if there is a crisis. I also got to taste her lovely banana bread.

If you're going to Cape Town and plan a hike, please do contact her as she is highly recommended.

My husband and I had climbed Table Mountain some 10 years ago and wanted to give it another try. Our hotel,
the Cape Grace, highly recommended Binny as the only guide to use if you're going to hike the mountain. We had to take the steep, shortest trail up the front of the mountain due to time constraints. She was quite knowledgeable about the mountain, foliage, and animals. It was such an added bonus to have her with us. She made the climb interesting and fun for both of us. The pace she kept for us was perfect. With numerous stops for water and for me to catch my breathe, we made it to the top in a little over 2 hours!! Not bad. My only regret is that I didn't have the opportunity to hike another route, or mountain with her!!

Absolutely awesome hike, with the best guide I've had. Binny knows the mountain like the back of her hand and shared lots of interesting information about table mountain during our 3 hour hike. She was patient and allowed me (the slowest on the team of 3) to set our pace with lots of water and photo breaks - "Slow & Steady" to the top and I made it.

I'd do it again in a heart beat and hike down as well. Lion's head is next!
