        Great Views, Knowledge, and Hospitality.
        Great views - Codi allowed me to join the back end of his tour given that my tour guide from a separate and different company never showed to accompany me for my sunset hike. He offered me refreshments, to join his group’s hike on the way down, knew the ways up and down the mountain, and was able to point out locations. His hospitality was genuine and I recommend him/the company to anyone.

        Lions Head - Sunset
        Amazing hike with Codi. Perfect weather and perfect sunset. Great communication from the company prior to the trip for any questions and advising you of pick up time. Don’t hesitate to book. Well worth it.

        Greatest experience of my life
        My friend and I did the trek at Sunrise, starting at 5:30am with Codi. The entire experience - the challenging trail, the insightful conversations, motivational and encouraging words by Codi while climbing the difficult parts, and the spectacular views at every turn and the 360 degree view on the top - was something I had never experienced before. I would highly recommend everyone to go on Lions Head Hike with this team for an immersive, holistic and memorable journey which goes way beyond just the beautiful views. We are a bunch of unfit people but Codi encouraged us throughout the hike to keep going at our own pace without rushing us and made us feel like we made a huge accomplishment when we climbed to the top. The amazing conversations kept us engaged all throughout, ranging from Cape Town's enthralling history to its unique flora (fynbos et al). The sunrise from the top at 7:00 am was the mesmerizing view I've ever seen in my life and all the 90 minutes of strenuous climb were totally worth it in the end. If there's only 1 thing you have to do in Cape Town, I highly recommend you for the sunrise Lions Head Trek with Tariq's team.

        Definitely a must do.
        The hike was worth the view and the experience. Our guide Codi was the best! Learned so much about Cape Town and had the best random conversations. He made the trail seem easier as well with the best spots to chill and take beautiful photos. Would highly recommend this activity to anyone visiting and get Codi as your guide. Thank you!

        Breathtaking sunrise looking down over Capetown.
        A highlight of my trip to Capetown! Breathtaking 360 degree views of Capetown as the sun rose. Our guide Codi was terrific. Highly recommended.

        The hike was amazing challenging but worth it once you reach the top and having Kurt as our guide was essential to our survival.

        Hiking is healing
        I did 2 hikes with Capetownlocal : table mountain ( breathtaking rock climbing experience, advanced level though 😉) at sunrise with Miles ( the best limitless guide ) and lions’ head at the sunset with Kurt ( inspirational folk) . I had such great and fun time going up there . Highly recommend and will for sure keep their contact ✨🙌🏼

        Cool Hike
        I enjoyed a great hike with our guide Kurt. The weather was not optimal but Kurt stayed positive and guided us through the rather steep path. He was very attentive and flexible regarding our drop off location. Overall I highly recommend Kurt as your guide.

        Awesome hike despite misty weather
        You just can’t control weather. While it’s forecasted to be sunny, the hike up and down Lion’s Head was misty throughout. Nonetheless, it was a good hike and Kurt was engaging, encouraging and informative throughout. Thanks for the nice day out!

        Breathtaking view ! Recommended activity to do in Cape Town
        Gloves will be useful for rock climbing especially during your descend. Best to hike with a local guide for safety reason. Our guide Idrees was very helpful in giving tips for photo spot as well as sharing the history of Cape town .

        Idrees was an amazing tour guide, he was super friendly & informative! He told us all about Cape Towns history during the walk and gave us lots of recommendations for restaurants etc during our stay in Cape Town. The sunrise from the top of Lions Head was beautiful and we got lots of amazing photos! 100% recommend. Thank you Idrees! From Bekah, Elliott & Liv

      I really enjoyed the hikes with Tauriq and recommend him as a guide to anyone visiting Cape Town. He knows the area very well and I learned a lot about the history and some useful things about nature. We went for a sunrise hike on Table Mountain which was incredibly beautiful.
      The views made my last weekend in Cape Town memorable and rounded out my time in Cape Town perfectly. Although I don't usually hike much, on these 2 hikes I found my passion for it again

      My wife and I spent a full day with Ibby who was our tour guide and driver for the day .
      He was excellent we managed to see
      Camps bay, Cape of Good Hope, Cape Point, Boulders Beach , Chapman’s Peak drive , stopped for lunch at a lovely restaurant and finished the day by going up Table Mountain which we couldn’t do in the morning due to strong winds. Ibby was an excellent guide with so much knowledge to share with us and also taking some wonderful photos thank you
      Highly recommend this trip

      This was the adventurous route up to the top of Table Mountain. Tauriq is an experienced and knowledgeable guide helping everyone along the way. The are sections on the route that requires some scrambling at high heights. We didnt once feel nervous and Tauriq assisted in guiding us every step on the way. Tauriq stopped at lovely secret spots for those perfect Intstagram pics and when we got to the top he had some lovely snacks to share with us! Thank you for the lovely cookies your wife baked! they were delicious :) I would definitely recommend this route to all of those seeking adventure and would definitely recommend Tauriq to show you how the locals do it!

      Tauriq is not only an incredible guide with expert knowledge of all of Cape Town’s mountains, he makes you feel like the impossible is easy! One step / handhold / ladder / chain / rock at a time and some how you’ll find yourself at the top feeling accomplished for the day! There’s never any doubt with Tauriq leading the way. He literally runs these trails at night so he knows them like they’re his own. Just a lovely person and an even more amazing ultra-marathon trail running athlete. Could not recommend more highly. (Ask about his wife’s cookies also)

      Highly recommend this hike, the more adventurous route with very few tourists. We hiked back down the usual tourist route and the views do not compare! Tauriq, our guide, was great from start to finish. Great communication, gave us an insight in to the local history and supported us throughout the hike and encouraged us to take things at our own pace.

      it was nothing short of amazing, the knowledge shared and the care given to navigating this route. a route which definitely requires some guidance to the "venster" and ofcourse a ever necessary picture :) inside the "Venster" with views that feast the eyes all around.
      Further to this, the trek up is challenged with some technicality, but all was made easier through the guidance and carefully instructed assistance of our Guide Tauriq, This gave me comfort in attempting something a little out of my comfort (the couch) zone.
      Seeing cape Town and its splendor from all angles for me was the highlight of this "hike", well i deemed it more of a true adventure. great weather allowed us clear views with great conversations on the various parts of cape town, from the cape flats to the Atlantic seaboard. I highly recommend this one, i got to be honest, its not a walk in the park, but a journey beyond your boundaries in safe well trained hands ;). i loved it, and loved the journey down via the Cable Car . well for the experience,view and uhm.....fitness :)

      Tauriq was an awesome guide. Despite having various levels of fitness within the people of the group, he managed to take us up the challenging route in a way that met each of our needs and expectations. I would say that I was one of the fitter and faster people and with high expectations so this is high praise.

      Despite this being a popular destination, we hardly encountered anyone at all on the way up even though there were many people at the top. If you are looking to get off the beaten track and do some scrabbling along the way, this is your route and Tauriq is your guide! I would definitely use Tauriq as my guide if I am ever in Cape Town again.

      Tauriq is an amazing guide and what an experience he offered. I hiked with him up Lions Head and Table Mountain. Two totally different experiences, but two amazing adventures. He is an outstanding guide, and will give you confidence even when hikes get challenging (for those that don’t traditionally hike). He has an amazing perspective of South African history given his background and he was open to sharing personal stories that really made me appreciate him and the culture of the area we were ascending above. Fully recommend, and would trust implicitly no matter the path or trail he recommends. Can’t wait to see him again my next trip to Cape Town.

      I’ve done one of my best sunrise hike with Tauriq!
      He took us to India Venster trail which has mixture of everything, such as climbing, scrambling, bouldering.

      Even though the trail start was not difficult, few people started giving alerts, and Tauriq noticed those signals right on time, gave them clear directions that they should not continue.
      Other guides wouldn’t catch those signals and would’ve put everyone in danger.

      My overall experience is perfect and definitely recommend him for the visitors!
      He’s an authentic local guy with lots of knowledge and experience!

      Ask him to take you to the Organic Market breakfast if you’re hiking on weekend ;)
