We were a group of 10 hikers of mixed fitness, plus Binny, our superb lead guide and her excellent and very caring assistant Leonard. For this 5 day hike, you need to be fit! We unfortunately had 3 hikers whose knees packed up at different stages of the journey, but Binny & Leonard made sure the injured were well taken care of and were transported to the next destination where necessary. We were all looked after like we were royalty, the tented camps were stunning, the food was really good (thanks Frank), the views incredible and Binny & Leonard's knowledge of the area made each day very interesting. We had really good fun & would highly recommend Binny & her team.

From our first contact with Binny, she was friendly and helpful and we could not have chosen a better guide. On the day of our hike, the weather was terrible - strong winds, rain and little visibility. However, we felt very safe in Binny's capable hands. She selected a new route around the sheltered side of the mountain and clearly knew the mountain like the back of her hand, avoiding the blustery spots but still showing us things of interest (like the amazing beach on the mountain). Pace wise, she got it spot on - nothing felt beyond our capabilities. She was great company too, happily answering all of our (stupid) questions. She also prepared a lovely lunch. We would thoroughly recommend her.

Hiked Table Mountain with some family/friends of varying age/fitness levels. Naively thought we could do the hike ourselves, but ultimately agreed to a guide and glad we did. We could have managed but Binny made it a much more enjoyable experience and made sure everyone was comfortable and safe. She is also very knowledgable about the mountain, the Cape area, etc... Most importantly, she was a fun and engaging companion...the kind of person who you'd like to hangout and share a couple of beers with. Bottom line..if you want to do any hiking in and around Cape Town hire a guide and make sure it's Binny. P.S. Let her know if you're a dog lover and she'll bring her dogs along for the fun.

We had three in our group, one fit and two now so fit. Binny made it an enjoyable day for all of us as we hiked up and down Table Mountain. She is very knowledgeable, experienced and fun to be with on the trail. We would not have had a great experience without her.

Definitely worth hiring a guide for table mountain.

Binny took me up one side of table mountain and down the other, it was an amazing experience and Binny was a lovely chatty guide and a great person to hang out with as she showed me the mountain.

We hiked up into the clouds in the early morning sun and I just had a t-shirt on, when we hit the clouds it was time to put on the waterproofs Binny had brought along for me. The fog and the change it mood at the top made the trip even better for me, it resembled a wet marshland. We walked through calm valleys, gusty boulder filled trails and eventually came down the other side to an incredible ocean view in beautiful sunshine.

It was great not having to worry about where you were headed or whether you were going to get lost and just enjoy the scenery as Binny told me fascinating facts about the plants and wildlife.

Oh, and I had some friends who tried to hike on there own, they made it halfway up, it got rainy and they gave up and went down the same route - definitely worth hiring Binny if you want to have a great adventure no matter what the weather.
