Pietro was the most amazing, kind, patient and interesting thoughtful guide. He took us at our own pace, was incredibly thoughtful and educational and made it the best morning of our Cape Town trip. HIGHLY recommend.

Been researching quite a while and decided to go with Margaret as she was quicks and clear with my needs, she follows up swiftly and was careful to recommend something enjoyable. Kasteelspoort route is indeed apt for us as a couple. It is safe (no looking over the shoulders out to the edge of the cliffs), comfortable (we exercise regular... More

What a wonderful way to spend the morning...Margaret's colleague, Pietro, guided us on the 2 hour climb, and he was fantastic - fascinating to talk to, attentive, super helpful and great company. Thank you.

I am a tour guide and I always recommend hiking up table mountain. I do it regularly. There are many routes of varying degrees of difficulty and are generally well sign posted - nonetheless, this is a dangerous mountain and you must have water (the most common rescue call is dehydration) and a warm jacket - the weather can change...

One of the must do trips while in Cape Town, well worth the early start, took the Platteklip Gorge including Maclears Beacon route, steep but very enjoyable, Margaret was an excellent guide very informative and knowledgeable, so much walking to be done in and around Cape Town and will not hesitate to contact Margaret to guide us in the future.

The views from the top of the mountain are amazing, but the complete experience is arrive walking. Margaret is an excellent guide. The activity is highly recommendable.

We went with Pietro for an early start which meant we missed all the rush hour and got the cooler temperatures for a more pleasant hiking experience. We did the Skeleton Gorge via Maclear's Beacon to the Front table. It was just the right intensity for us and Pietro was very good at gauging our ability level. He was also... More

Margaret was referred to me by another highly regarded Cape Town Guide. She was detail oriented prior to the hike giving me several options based on what I wanted to see and my level of fitness. She was prompt in responding to me and arrived on time. I appreciated her knowledge of the area and the local flora. She took... More

My friend and I visited Cape Town in Nov 16 and booked to walk up Table Mountain with Margaret. I'm not very fit, and was worried I would struggle - but Margaret was great at putting my mind at rest and said we could turn around at any point if needed. It wasn't necessary though, as i managed it a... More

We were recommended this experience by friends who have twice walked up Table Mountain with Margaret and we therefore booked up the walk "Kasteelspoort via Valley of the Red Gods to Front Table". It's an early start, but that is certainly the best time to do it due to the heat. Margaret guided us up and pointed out some great... More
