We did the India Venster trail with Hendré and it was our favourite thing in Cape Town. This trail is worth every second (if you are in good shape and are not scared of heights PLEASE book this trail), getting to the top was incredibly rewarding. Once we got back down (we had to do it by foot as well... More

My partner and I enjoyed a great early morning hike to the top of Table Mountain on the India Venster route with Johan last month. We booked this at short notice and were impressed with the response time from Hike Table Mountain via their Facebook page. We found this route to be reasonably challenging and interesting with a good variety... More

We had an amazing time trekking up the 12 Apostles on table mountain with Liesl- we will recommend it to all our friends as it was such a great experience. She really made it so much fun and informative, and such stunning surroundings which she knew so well. She made us totally comfortable and safe.

Husband and I - both 50 somethings - hiked up the 12 Apostle route with Liesl then Lion's head with Mike. Highly recommended both. Easy pick up and drop offs at hotel. The 12 Apostle route was pleasant and mildly challenging. Now know that ladders, chains etc are helpful, not scary. Beautiful views up the back side of Table Mountain.... More

We hiked up the India Venster trail with Riaan on a November morning. It was my first time hiking up a mountain and whilst the trail was a challenge Riaan put me totally at ease and I felt safe the whole time. He was an excellent guide. I would say you need a reasonable to good level of fitness to... More

Hiked up India Venster with Mike. He's brilliant. Great for conversations about the local history and nature. Get more than just a walking experience as he gets you to smell the flowers and soak in the experience. Kept us going at a steady pace that suited everyone and got us up in 4 hours. Some scrambling on this route so... More

Deciding to book a hike 10/18/16 with Hike Table Mountain was the best decision I made during my stay in Cape Town. I was attending a conference and decided to hike on a free morning. I'm pretty experienced and don't usually hike with a guide, but since I didn't know the terrain and was traveling solo, I thought it would... More

Riaan Vorster and his team 'made our day' for another two days this year. We had gotten to know his organization - HikeTableMountain - last year when we wanted to hike Table Mountain via Indian Venster. Hendre DeVilliers – member of their team and our guide for that tour was of outstanding quality as a guide and a fun to... More

We did a hike up the India Venster route with Hendre. As a couple of people that are active but do not hike much this was a great fun challenge. It was more than a walk as a bit of scrambling on all fours was required, but Hendre made sure we were all good and safe. We had a great... More

We done the India Venster hike which was a great experience from the breathtaking views to the challenging but exciting hike. We had the mountain to ourselves all the way and weather was just perfect. Our guide was brilliant (Riaan) - he helped us up some of the challenging scrambles / climbs and his knowledge of the mountain was fantastic... More
