What an absolutely amazing experience this was!

I would definitely recommend the climb to anyone over using the cable... More

We are a family of four (kids, 10 and 13) and had a wonderful time hiking up Table Mountain on the India Venster trail. The difficulty of the route was clearly and accurately described in the course description. Our kids are experienced hikers and rock climbers, and had no major issues, but you need to be reasonably fit and not... More

In addition to his extensive knowledge of Table Mountain, Riaan gave us excellent insider advice on the highlights of Cape Point. We had a rental car and followed Riaan’s suggestions – and had an unforgettable day in the spectacular scenery on a drive around the peninsula. We hiked, we ate, we photographed animals, we walked barefoot on silky sand beaches.... More

Fantastic experience, and our guide was Riaan, and he was an amazing guide, genuinely interested in the group and maintained a steady but doable pace, even for someone like me, that was at the back of the pack. Riaan was very clear about rules and skilfully guided us up the scrambling phases of the mountain, some of which look truly... More

This was the highlight of our visit so far to Cape Town. Many people might think it ridiculous to spend 4 hours plus hiking up Table Mountain, but this was done with one of the most professional organisations we ever hired which means that we did the climb without any stress. We did a four hour treck with a guide,... More

So I'm usually the type to just venture out on my own, but I was traveling solo and didn't have much time to research. I chose this company and am very happy that I did. Mike was my guide for the day and along the way up he pointed out many plants - both bad and good - and fielded... More

We did the India Venster route with Darren. we had a privately tour as we needed a late start. Brilliant weather and perfect blue skies with no cloud! We did the hike which had varied terrain. Steep start with lots of steps that were quite high and uneven. In parts we had to scramble and climb with lots of guidance.... More

Johan was our guide up Skeleton Gorge route, and he was first class! It was a long 4.5 hrs climb, but so worth the effort when you finally reach the highest point at Mclear's Beacon! There is some rock scrambling and wooden ladders, but still comfortable for those individuals who have some fear of heights. Johan had great knowledge about... More
