During our visit to Cape Town we wanted to do one of the Table Mountain hikes. Riaan and Mike helped us select the best route based on our fitness level. Pletteklip Gorge was steep, but relatively quick ascend (we had to use hands in very few places, so it was mostly a steep hike). The cable car was closed due... More

Went on a really excellent hike of the Inda Venster route with Hendré! We showed up the day before, having booked for that day, and were met with horrible winds of 45km/h at the lower cable station. Reports said it was 108km/h at the top of the mountain. Darren and his hiking partner were so understanding, and said we could... More

The walk with Mike and his collogue was a real fantastic experience. We went up the very beautiful and a bit challenging India Venster to the top of the Table mountain! So scenic and Mike and his colleague was really lovely and also interested in the participants. They really took their time and made sure that everybody where save. We... More

Myself and my partner did the India Venster route with Darren and had a great time. Such a lovely and informative guide. Read the group very well and gave us just the perfect number of breaks even though I think our group was eager to get to the top in a good time....which we still did. With regards the route...don't... More

What a fantastic hike this was. Mike Wakeford was our guide and his knowledge of the history and the fauna/flora of the area on top of his climbing expertise made for an unforgettable experience. The fact that it was a clear day with no wind (or fires) to worry about made it all the more satisfying. Thank you for the... More

I cannot express enough how amazing this experience is for those visiting Cape Town! It is worth each rand. I chose the "easier route", Platteklip Gorge. But don't let the term easy fool you. I run three times a week and lift weights, but the route still challenged me. It may be easier compared to the other hikes, but the... More

My wife and I hiked up the India Venster route with our fun guide Darren! My wife had been in contact with this company, mainly Riaan, who helped select this route for us based on fitness level and our quest for adventure. When we arrived the morning of the hike and met Darren, he reassured us of our ability to... More

Table Mountain hike was breath taking, amazing views on the ocean and Lion’s Head. Beautiful nature, flowers and birds all around you. We did 12 Apostles private hike with Mike and would highly recommend! It was very nice to meet Mike and we had a good chat with him while hiking. Perfect day out exploring.

Riaan was our guide and he was amazing. Great energy, funny stories and helpful with the hiking and scrambling. There is no better way to experience table mountain. Also he gave great activity and restaurant recommendations.

Highly recommend Hike Table Mountain (and our fabulous, chatty guide, Hendre) to guide you up India Venster! This is a somewhat challenging hike with some parts that require scrambling and other parts that aren't well marked, so I'm glad we took a guide. We had gorgeous views the entire way up to the top of Table Mountain, and barely saw... More
