About Cape Town Trails
Cape Town Trails was born out of a love for Table Mountain and all that it offers. From quick, midweek escapes, to full days exploring with friends. As with any new place, one tries to see all the major attractions, but a lot of the time, the real gems are just off the beaten track. Our aim is to show you both the main attractions as well as the hidden gems.

There was a group of 6 of us over for the Cape Town test match in January and we decided to try and find a guide to take 6 x over 50's up table mountain, we had a look on the internet and the first call we made was to Arno at Cape Town Trails, we struck gold. Straight away Arno talked us through the options and gave us confidence that we were in good hands. We were met bang on time at the bottom of the mountain and the walk up began. We are a pretty unfit bunch and many times we were struggling but rests were plentiful and well spaced out and there were words of encouragement all the way, arno took the time out to talk to us about the beauty of the mountain, the flowers, the legendary tales of the mountain and the wildlife. He was equipped with some power foods for that quick hit when we needed it and i'm not sure that we'd have made it to the top without Arno and his ability to motivate us to do so. We had a fantastic time in Cape Town and this was part of that memorable trip. thanks Arno for your professionalism and courtesy, 5 english lads and a kiwi are really grateful

Great day with a great guide. Friendly experienced guy with tons of enthusiasm and local knowledge. We were blessed with weather making the climb very atmospheric. Arno was considerate and took time to point many flowers and details a casual walker would have missed. Even provided a great coffee with bill tong and nuts for breakfast by the dam before a good exploratory walk at the top of mountain. Had to buy the guy a beer he had earnt it. Would definitely recommend Arno we shall be booking again on our next trip to Cape Town.

My dad and I were fortunate enough to trek up Table Mountain with Arno van der Heever as our guide. The trip to the summit was breathtaking, yes, but it was Arno--with his amazing facts, expert climbing assistance, and affable, passionate nature--who went above and beyond to make it the trek of a lifetime. His passion for hiking and local history was extremely evident, and we benefited greatly from the historical, cultural, and geographical context he provided. Our experience was further enhanced by Arno's passion for photography. Often without us even asking, he would recommend a great photo spot and enthusiastically proceed to enthusiastically photograph us with panoramic, portrait, and normal photos (via phone). Post hike, he was extremely quick to upload the photos he took of us to Google Drive and send us the link. It was truly a privilege to be led up a world-class mountain by a world-class guide like Arno. He exceeded all my expectations and for that, I can't recommend him highly enough.
