Great way to celebrate a 64th birthday!

I planned my abseil for the day of my birthday and was lucky to wake up to an absolutely beautiful day in CapeTown. We got the first City Sightseeing bus at 0800, having booked... read more

Hi, our group of 7 took the hike and abseil tour on May 1st. Our group size seemed quite large given the number of guides that were assisting us - there was our group of 7 plus another group of 8 plus another single person for a total of 16. Even in such a large group, the hike was doable... More

I planned my abseil for the day of my birthday and was lucky to wake up to an absolutely beautiful day in CapeTown. We got the first City Sightseeing bus at 0800, having booked cable car tickets in advance. The queue was not too bad and I arrived early for 1100 abseil. The team up there were great in accommodating... More

Gorgeous, thrilling and adventurous! Worth the money just for the spectacular view on the way down and no previous experience necessary. The guy basically lowered me the whole way down hahaha! Loved it and immediately wanted to go again. There is a short walk back to the top but not at all challenging so don't need to be too fit... More

I didn't actually do the abseil myself but my 13 year old daughter and her 15 year old friend did. The instructors were great with the girls and they both said it was the best thing they'd ever done. Thank you for helping and supporting them.

This is an absolute must for anyone visiting Cape Town. The trill of going down a 112 meter mountain with a rope by itself is enough to make you scream and sweat. Once you start the abseil, the view from the table mountain is absolutely breathtaking.

Highly recommend to anyone. The views from the abseil are amazing and the package is very reasonable considering they also take photos for you and you can get photos off there Facebook page at no extra cost. One of the best things I did in Cape Town

We went for the hike and abseil tour. The hike was really nice and fun but very tiring; however, I recommend that you do the hike on your own since you'd be on your own pace (slow paced people will hold you back since the guide will always hold the pace of the slowest person). The abseil was perfect!!! It... More

Would really recommend doing this if you get the chance. I was quite scared when leaning over the edge but was full of adrenaline when I reached the bottom. The guides are funny and friendly. Our guide for the hike back up was very knowledgeable and thought us a lot about Cape Town and Table Mountain.
