Had the best two days climbing and laughing with Tony and my friend. I am a beginner and not particularly strong but I trusted Tony 100% and I quickly gained confidence. Would recommend Tony whether your pro or a beginner like me. Looking forward to the upcoming climbs I booked immediately after completing the first course. Also Montagu, what a place!

My friend and I did a 2-day introductory climbing course with Tony. Both of us were quite inexperienced (me more than her), but by the second day we were scampering up the cliff face like rock(star) spiders :) Tony was very competent and thorough with the teaching, as well as extremely patient with us. He equipped us with the technical guidance and confidence to push ourselves, all while having a laugh and a lot of fun. If I could give the experience more than 5 stars I would!

We went on an excellent 3 full days guided sport climb and hike in the Cederberg. The first day was the guided sport climb. We followed with an overnight "Five Peak hike". The first day we hiked up to a range with a scramble/some ropes to get to the top of two peaks. We camped on top of the range underneath the stars. The second day we scrambled/some ropes three additional peaks and hiked down. We ended the hike with beer and a great dinner at Kromrivier brewery. It was challenging, but a lot of fun. We were able to go places that were "off the beaten path" but with little stress in terms of planning. We felt safe the entire time and the company was excellent - fun, kind, thoughtful, and welcoming group. We were able to rent gear/camping equipment. Tony is incredibly well-organized and thorough in planning and prep, which made everything run smoothly. I will definitely call and try to arrange another trip the next time I am in the area.

We had an amazing time cloning with Tony! I’m quite beginner and managed to clim a pretty cool wall, felt really safe and the whole experience was lots of fun. Tony also have us lots of travelling tips, and we had great conversations. Would definitely recommend!

As an addict of adventure in far-flung and obscure places, the Covid-19 pandemic has seriously clipped my wings. Unable to travel abroad, I decided instead to look local and use the opportunity to explore my own country. In my search for interesting trips to cool places, I was lucky enough to find Tony Lourens of Blue Mountain Adventures to provide what I was looking for. I have now done three wonderful trips with Tony: a bespoke weekend of hiking and climbing in his charming home town of Montagu, a five-day hiking, camping and climbing trip to the very special Cederberg and a three-day trip to climb Towerkop, a very distinctive cleft rock tower with an interesting history near Ladismith, all in different corners of the Western Cape. Each of these adventures was organised with meticulous care and with special attention to safety, particularly in relation to the rock climbing aspects. While we brought along our own breakfasts, lunches and snacks, Tony’s dinners were outstanding. Notwithstanding the mixed abilities and experience of his client groups, he managed to ensure that everyone achieved their objectives while having a thoroughly enjoyable time. While Tony is a seasoned guide and rock climbing expert, it is his passion for the outdoors and his extensive knowledge of South Africa’s mountain ranges and climbing hubs that sets him apart. I look forward to many more adventures with him.
