My husband and I hiked the India Venster route with Riaan Vorster and it was a superb way to see Table Mountain without the tourist chaos at the top. Riaan is so familiar with the mountain and helps everyone along the route. We had not done our research well clearly so came with less than sufficient water, and were a... More

We did India Venster route with Hendre. She was wonderful, knowledgeable and calming. This was an amazing experience that applies to life. When your mind is telling you to quit, just keep going and great things will happen. Couple times I felt like I wanted to stop but Hendre kept encouraging me and with her sweet calming voice I just... More

Not sure if we could manage the india venster route but surprised ourselves .....easier route wasn't available on the day so made the decision to go for it! Darren our guide was fabulous...helped each and everyone one of the six in the group to tackle the climb. There was some challenging parts of the climb but well worth doing to... More

From initial contact to reaching the top was enjoyable and an amazing experience. We hiked with Hendre (I'm sure all their guides are great) however, we had such a laugh with her that at times, we forgot we were climbing a challenging mountain. First time climbers, and not overly fit we did Indian Versteer, it was challenging and the views... More

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

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
