Lynette was fantastic! So knowledgeable, kind and patient. We did India venster and although she warned me there is some scrambling on the trail (I didn’t really know what that meant), we decided to go with it and pushed ourselves out of our comfort zone. At the first scrambling spot, I froze in my tracks and panicked, but Lynette had everything under control, made me feel so safe and led me through that section with ease. The sense of achievement after that is amazing!! ☺️ We loved our day with her and learned quite a bit about the flora and fauna on the mountain as well. Def. Recommend her to anyone going on a guided hike ☺️

Lynette is the prototypical exceptional guide: engaging, enthusiastic, and professional with an encyclopedic knowledge of the region! I look forward to more excursions with her when I next return to the Cape Town area and unequivocally recommend her (in fact I’ve already passed along her info to friends in Jo’burg). Hiking with her was the unexpected highlight of my multi-week trip through South Africa!

What a lovely experience. A strong start from Fishhoek at 7.30am with Margaret and her well trained dogs. Margaret knows the terrain so well and pointed out the suspended nests of the huntsman spider and some interesting Fynbos along the way. My only regret is that I didn't carry my phone to take pictures. The spectacular 360degree view from the top is breathtaking. I was especially thrilled to have done this after completing radiation treatment a year prior and only my second time on Elsies Peak.

I've hiked Table Mountain with Pietro on two separate occasions now. Once by myself in 2014 with a group of tourists and then this past January 2020 with my husband and two tourists from the UK. If your on the fence, go for it! I booked Table Mountain walks at the last minute (both times) and was able to hike the next day. Pietro picked us up from our hotel in Cape Town around 5:30 am and drove us to the bottom of the hike. We did the Platteklip Gorge trail. He even had snacks and water to share. We were there as the sunrise was about to come up and started hiking before most people showed up. This is a steep "walk" and Pietro is accommodating to people of different fitness levels. He stops regularly for breaks and will set a pace that all are comfortable with. If you don't exercise regularly or have issues doing cardio, this might be tough for you but otherwise, you should be fine! It took us about 2 hours to get to the top of the mountain. Pietro was kind enough to take photographs throughout. We made it to the top just about as the cable car started bringing people up and it was starting to get crowded as it was the holiday season. We got plenty of photographs and took the cable car back down. During my trip in 2014, I was there in August, and it happened to be the one week out of the year that the cable car was down for maintenance and we had to hike back down. I promise hiking down was harder than hiking up. If you're up for the challenge, brace yourself for loose rocks and jelly sore legs afterwards. Afterwards we felt so accomplished and invigorated by our hike we were ready to take on the day! This is an absolute must if your visiting Cape Town. If you're looking for more of a challenge, try one of the more challenging hikes offered by Table Mountain Walks. Hopefully I'll be back to walk with Pietro again!

Yesterday we climbed the Table Mountain over the Skeleton Gorge route. Lynette as a tour guide made this day with her experience and diverse knowledge about botanic, history, culture, and the route itself to an unforgettable adventure. The trail offered a high variety of different experiences and beautiful views over the city bowl and its surroundings. We were a small group out of lovely people which were all empathetic, considerate and took care of each other. I do strongly recommend to go on Table Mountain with Lynette and would definitely do it again!!! Thank you very much!
