We booked Margaret to take us as part of a group up table mountain on the Kasteelspoort via Valley of the Red Goods route. The only other member of our group was a nice retired guy from Canada. Margaret picked us up at our hotel in Sea Point at 6.45 AM and drove us all to Theresa Ave in Camps... More

We were in Cape Town at end of our 3 week road trip. We wanted to do a traverse of the mountain from Kasteelpoort (ascent) to Platerklip Gorge (descent). Lynette was our guide for the day and she was awesome. We felt really looked after and could relax and enjoy the scenery and amazing vistas. The valleys we walked through... More

Me and my 64 years young mum climed Platteklip Gorge with Pietro. He was really great and let us go at a pace that suited us. He had plenty of little stops for us to dit down on a comfy flat rock on the way up. He was informative and up front about the hike ahead and the risk of... More

A team of us went up Table Mountain as a team building exercise. There was a group of us of varying ages and fitness levels. Best time to go is early as when we came down in the cable car it was heaving. We arrived at the bottom of the mountain at 6am. We were lucky as the weather was... More

We hired Margaret to take hike with us up Table Mountain via the Kasteelpoort trail. We are both in fairly good shape, and this hike was rather challenging that took about 3.5hrs, but well worth the hike! We took the cable car on the way down which I would highly recommend. Margaret is friendly, experienced, and very knowledgeable of the... More

Many guide books said we should get a guide to help us up table mountain ... However, I do a fair bit of hiking, and found a free good map with description of where the walk started and ended, and gave the usual sensible advice... Beware of changes in weather, wear good footwear, take plenty of water and food. We... More

Great day visiting the Cape of Good Hope. We were collected from our hotel early in the morning so that we arrived before the crowds and had a nice quiet time to visit and do some walking before the coach loads arrived. It was a very enjoyable day. would recommend this trip.

What a great hike up Platteklip Gorge with Margaret leading - informative, well-paced and great company. After a 7am-ish start, we were at the top in a couple of hours, before anyone else got there. Amazing! Unless you're really enthusiastic, I'd recommend doing the hike with Margaret because she'll get you going early so you beat the crowds; you'll find... More

It was an unforgettable experience, quite a bit more challenging than we expected, but fantastic. Pietro was a very good and understanding guide, keeping a good eye on whether things were still all right.

In all my pre-trip research of things to do in Cape Town, always ranked very high, if not first on the list, was to be sure and go up Table Mountain. Some of the guidebooks carry stiff warnings about safety on the trails both from a difficulty of the trails viewpoint and from a small opportunistic criminal element viewpoint and... More
