We did a hike on the Kaastelsport route with Ray in October and had an absolutely brilliant day. My fiancé has an issue with sheer heights if she is near a cliff edge etc so we initially received brilliant advice on which route to chose. On the day, Ray was extremely friendly and informative and made Caroline feel very relaxed... More

Liesal is one of the best guides we have ever had. Besides being extremely knowledgeable about the unique flora and fauna of this ancient Mountain park, she is extremely friendly, attentive and clearly has a fantastic passion and attitude to her job. We did a 4 hour hike up the mountain and enjoyed every bit. Riann, the organiser/manager has also... More

Devils peak hike table mountain Cape Town. You need to start early 5-7am & you need to be fairly fit. Depart from roads memorial to block house and then proceed straight to the top along saddle ridge. The mountain falls away on either side to EPIC views of Cape Town the Indian Ocean ( false bay ) to your left... More

We decided to use this company to hike up Table Mountain and I cannot speak highly enough of them based on our experience. Firstly hiking up the mountain can be difficult partly due to unpredictable weather and from underestimating the physical effort required (if you aren't quite as fit as you thought you were like yours truly). Riaan was great... More

We arranged for a guide to help us ascend Table Mountain via the India Venster Trail. They will ask you your fitness and adventure level via email during the booking process to gauge what would be the best trail for your hiking competency. However, it’s not always going to be accurate because Riaan recommended us go an easier trail but... More

Fantastic experience. Ended up with an extra day free on a business trip to Capetown on short notice and they were able to fit me into an already scheduled hike up the India Venstar route. It was a perfect challenge for someone with reasonable fitness but without much hiking / climbing experience as long as you are ok with heights.... More

We knew we wanted to hike up Table Mtn and am so glad I found Hike Table Mountain tours website. From the moment I contacted them, they were very responsive. I told them we were experienced hikers and wanted a strenuous hike. We opted for a private hike and our guide, Liesl, was so terrific! She pointed out different floral... More

My husband and I decided we wanted to hike up Table Mountain and we are so thrilled with our decision to do so. We met our guide, Liesel R., at around 6:30 and started the trek up. Because it was early (before the cable car opened) and a Monday were all alone on our hike up which made the experience... More

Just enough challenge, rewarded with a beautiful view at the top! Moderate hike with some steep passes- about 1.5-2 hours with breaks and a beer at the top.

A 6.15am pickup by Hendre who whisked us to the Indian Venster hike start point (near the cable car bottom station). From there you get a great view of the dawn rising over Cape Town. And the view only gets better as you climb. Hendre was the perfect guide. Knowledgable about the flora (beware the killer coriander), and the fauna,... More
