We were a family group of 9 aged between 15 and 54 from Mauritius and we wanted to include a Table Mountain climb in our Cape Town trip. After exchanging emails with Riaan and discussing our fitness rating over the phone, he recommended the India Venster Route, provided no one suffered from fear of heights. We were not sure what...

We did an intermediate hike with Riaan (some intense scrambling; 4 hours up Table Mountain). Riann was very professional, helping us with footing and holds. He did not rush us up the mountain, and provided Cape history lessons as we ascended. Riaan is also a professional climber; which makes it easy to trust his advice. As important as our hiking...

Decided to go with Hike Table Mountain based on fantastic reviews here. Right from the start, Riaan didn't disappoint! He was quick in replying our emails & he makes you feel very secured throughout the hike. He also adapts his pace to suit everyone & he is extremely considerate & kind. We went with Riaan's suggestion & took the Indian... More

Riaan has been hiking and climbing Table Mountain for 25 years and must be one of the most knowledgeable guides here. His passion for the mountain is evident. If you're going to spend a valuable day of your holiday with someone you haven't met before you want to like them - Riaan is an easy going, caring person who wants... More

I´ve been on two trips with Riaan, both to Table Mountain via the Indian Venster route. Both times he picked me up at the hotel on time, and then I´ve joined a group for the day. He knows his way around the mountain, but also has a lot of knowledge about history, geography, culture etc, so all my questioned during... More

With only a day to spare after a meeting, the best decision I could have made was climbing Table Mountain with a group of colleagues, guided by Riaan Vorster from Hike Table Mountain. With each of us at a different fitness level, and one having health issues (that necessitated her turning back), not to mention our late start and the... More

Yes you can just do Table Mountain by the 3 Minute cable car trip but if you want to 'DO' Table Mountain you need to go with Riaan and spend the 3-4 Hours (atleast) walking up it. The route we went on took me out of my comfort zone i.e. had a harder scrambling than I thought, but with Riaan... More

We emailed Riaan the morning of our hike - he came back to us within half an hour and worked within our plans. Riaan picked us up at 11am and drove us to the foot of this beautiful mountain and within that brief drive - I knew this was going to be an unforgetable experience. The knowledge, love and history...

I was in Cape Town with my wife at the start of October and we wanted to climb up Table Mountain. I was contemplating going without a guide, however due to lack on information about routes and our desire to go on a more adventurous path up the mountain, we decided to do a guided walk. Riaan was recommended by... More
