      Table Mountain
      Stop: 3 hours
      The hike starts under the cable car and ascent to the contour path situated at the rock base of Table Mountain, certainly a good warm up! The contour path circles the slopes of Table Mountain, offering therefore stunning views of the city and the surrounding. The Platteklip gorge cuts through the front face of Table Mountain, the path zig-zags all the way up until it gets narrower and steeper. The final 150m is spectacular with huge rock walls on either side, narrowing to 4m. It is not to be trifled with, in other words it is a tough hike. Come with plenty of water, sunblock and appropriate footwear. To hike Platteklip Gorge is an unforgettable experience as you are treated with breath-taking views. It is best to hike at sunrise offering the best light for photos as well as a respite from the sun. Way down by cable car

      Fantastic Mountain Bike Trip Around Table Mountain
      My husband and I did the half day mountain bike loop around Table Mountain with Patrick, and it was spectacular! Fun, interesting, scenic riding on varied terrain. Patrick was an excellent guide, the bikes were great, and the ride was a highlight of our time in Cape Town. Highly recommend it!

      Fantastic experience
      We had an amazing experience and would defenelty reccomend trying this activity. We had the guide Patrick who was really amazing and gentle. The trip went from the cable station by Table mountain with a beautiful view in the sunraise. The Track varies from jeep Track and smaller trails in the forest. It was really fun and challanging, and Patrick was adjusting the trip based on our level. Thank you so much for a wonderful day Patrick! -Karoline & Sindre

      No quick cable car
      Thanks to Patrick as an arranger and Andy as my guide, my last day at Cape Town started to sparkle with the sunrise. Firstly, my booking was not suitable for their schedule. However, Patrick sincerely tried to arrange the original booking, and I could receive a go-decision message on the same night. On the booking date, Andy picked me up without delay according to the schedule, at 5AM. Our hike starting before dawn slowly became full of bright with the sunrise and the little bit harder climbing some vertical steps than my expectation. But Andy always took care about my climbing speed and steps. Hence, when we reached the top of the mountain without the cable car, I really felt my decision of the participation to their tour was much great. The tour is my best recommendation for tourists at Cape Town!!

      Amazing experience!
      I did the Lion's head sunset hike with Patrick and it was an amazing experience! Patrick is very frienfly and always attentive, adjusting the pace or helping you if needed. Conversation flows very easily and you will have the opportunity to learn about the local fauna, flora, and interesting aspects of the city. The view is mesmerizing all the way up to the top and there are no words to describe how beautiful it is to watch the sunset! After the sunset, Patrick provides you with a headlight, so it is a very safe hike. I will definitely recommend this hike with Patrick to my friends!

      An epic adventure
      What a great day on the bike! Patrick was great with communications prior to the day, keeping me updated on meet time and weather. Once we started, I knew this was going to be epic. A great adventure that covers a range of different road types. Great views around every corner and Patrick was incredibly knowledgeable!

      Awesome hike!
      I had such a great time mountain biking with my guide, Patrick, that I signed up to do a morning Table Mountain hike as well. Good to start early (when it’s quieter & cooler) the hike was challenging but still in the realm of my skill set! Patrick knew all the best ways to scramble the more technical areas we came across. He was also very knowledgeable of the area and terrain. Highly recommend this hike for outdoor enthusiasts! Don’t miss out!

      Fun challenge with stunning views
      I had an amazing experience mountain biking at Table Mountain with Patrick! It was a challenge (in a good way) and the views were stunning. Pat was so knowledgeable-pointing out historical landmarks in the city and explaining the flora of the area along the way! My bike was great, and sized properly for me. Highly recommend this tour if you’re into biking!

      India Venster Climb
      Patrick took our family group of three up India Venster. We all thoroughly enjoyed the climb and found it physically and technically challenging but great fun. We had lots of short rest stops with some local history from Patrick to recover after difficult sections and this made it more enjoyable. He was very patient with us on the technical sections and gave good advice. Definitely recommend for a half day out in Cape Town.

      Patrick the tour guide was the best
      The trip with Patrick was amazing. We were a bit late and asked him if we could stop and get coffee. He obliged he did tell us that the traffic would be heavy and that he wanted to get going a bit earlier so we got on the road he was super patient as I needed to stop on the restroom as well and the sites that we saw were absolutely stunning. We were able to also take pictures. Patrick has so much knowledge and we can’t wait to come back and take another tour with him. Highly recommend this tour!

      Cycle as much as you want
      CApe of good hope trip on e bikes. Bikes were light and in good condition. Racing handlebars. Patrick always near in mini bus. So you can do as much or as little as you want. He picks the best bits for you and chose a nice restaurant for lunch. Strongly recommended

      MTB half day tour around Paarl Rock
      Two of us visiting from Kenya did a half day MTB trip with Patrick around Paarl Rock to Rhebokskloof Wine Estate where we finished for lunch. The ride was magnificent (mix of steep uphills at the start to some incredible view points, serious downhill on a well maintained track and the last hour of single-track to the finish), the Specialised bikes we hired were top of the line and Patrick was a really fun host. This was the best MTB day of my life. Highly recommended

    Very professional and friendly guide. We loved getting out and about on our feet and experiencing something more rewarding than the typical cable car.
