Yesterday on a misty morning on Table Mountain we had a truly wonderful guided hike along the twelve apostles with Lauren and Johan from Mother City Hikers. We asked specifically for one that geared itself towards informative rather than physically challenging, with particular regards paid to the local flora and fauna. Almost every fynbos shrub we passed, no matter how large or small, had a story and our wishes for the hike to be more to do with the journey than the destination were more than answered. We truly couldn’t have found ourselves in better hands and look forward to embarking on another extraordinarily educational hike hopefully not in the too distant future.

I've been in the African safari business for 30 years and Lauren is one of the best guides I've ever worked with. She is supremely knowledgeable, well-prepared, authoritative when needed, yet friendly and caring at the same time. We hiked up Skeleton Gorge and down Nursery Ravine on the same day and it was tougher than I had anticipated. However Lauren was so positive and encouraging - it really made my day and I am so happy that I finally got around to hiking Table Mountain for the first time. Lauren had some extra hiking sticks for me, hand sanitizer (it was at the start of the COVID-19 event) and she even dropped me off back at my hotel at the end of the hike. Great service! We will be back!

I don’t normally write reviews, but I felt compelled based on my wonderful experience on this hike and with this company. I did the Skeleton Gorge Table Mountain Hike with Nic as my guide. Nic is an extremely knowledgeable and professional guide. He advised on the right route to take given the sub optimal weather, pointed out special flora and mountain features and overall was just pleasant to be around. Table Mountain is gorgeous and I am so glad I did this hike- a must do if you go to Cape Town! Also, Lauren who arranged the booking was incredibly polite and responsive. I booked very last minute and she had everything arranged. Overall, Table Mountain is an amazing experience, and if you can definitely book with Mother City.
