    Of course Lion's head is free, other than the energy required to get up. However if you are looking for a hike, Lion's head is by far the easiest hike the gives the best of the Cape Town mountain views. Great to do for sunset and easy to get down under moonlight.

    Lovely one night getaway to celebrate our birthdays. We were upgraded to a beautiful ambassador chalet with beautiful views and a tranquil setting however no hairdryer in the chalet and the drains had a strong odour. The dining experience was mediocre however the breakfast needs some serious work. Overall we enjoyed our stay, however with a little bit of extra effort from the staff and attention to detail it would have been even more memorable.

    The Lions head hike was amazing! Riaan made us both feel very comfortable which was great as we're new to these types of hikes. It's clear he's an expert in this and knows a ton about hiking, nature and more. It was great to have some interesting conversations throughout too!

    Highly recommend and hope we can return for another one soon. Thanks Riaan!

    Excellent trip. Every detail thought of by Greg and the team. Was a very special trip for us taking my 91 year old dad back home to Mauritius with his grandchildren and we couldn't have had a better or more memorable time.

    Second time we have booked with Greg and both trips have been first class. Here we were travelling with my 91 year old dad and Greg's suggestions and ideas to make the trip more comfortable and a better family experience were spot on. There is no way you can organise a trip as thoughtfully on your own by trying to book everything on the internet - when you are spending a lot of money on the holiday of a lifetime just get the trip organised by Greg and the team - you will have a far better time!

    I wanted my solo South Africa trip to be unique and Pete made it a reality. Instead of following the norm of traveling around in a 4x4 or sedan, I traveled in the comforts of his caravan called ‘Big Bertha’ with freshly cooked breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks and sundowners. Pete would pick me up up from my hotel in the mornings and I will return in the evenings.

    Pete is very knowledgeable on the history of South Africa and has many stories and insights on each locations. In addition, Pete is a great photo coach. He provided me with numerous tips and tricks that allowed me to capture the best shots at all the locations.

    I engaged Pete for 3 days and he customised each day to the places I wanted to visit and he also recommend other locations that I may enjoy. We had discussions over What’s App on the itinerary prior to my trip over. Pete goes out of his way to ensure the overall experience is top notch. On our first day together, when the weather didn’t comply, Pete would give me options and we made adjustments on the spot. I didn’t miss out on anything and in fact gained even more!

    The overall experience was truly amazing, from experiencing how the Cape Malay chicken curry is made in the caravan at the top of Signal Hill to having a Braai (South African BBQ) at the beach with spectaculars of the sea and the mountain. Although the locations are often the same as those visited by tourists, the experiences that came with this customised itinerary coupled with the caravan experience were definitely unique and you will make your friends and family very jealous. I know I did!

    Amazing tour - highly recommend! So many different activities and adventures, from canoeing, hiking, cave tours and of course the wonderful Safari! Above all, our tour guide Christine really made the trip - her knowledge and love for South Africa was invaluable and she always made sure that the group was having the best time. Her infectious smile and personality were a joy!! Would go again in a heartbeat!

    This was my family's second Table Mountain hike with Lauren, the first being in January 2015. It was a delight to return after seven years and reconnect in this magical location. Lauren and Johan took their time throughout the hike to share their vast knowledge about the flora and fauna around us as well as the history of Table Mountain and surrounding area. All questions were welcome, we never felt hurried along; their love and respect for the natural environment was evident from start to finish. Lauren and Johan took time to carefully plan our hiking route taking into consideration our fitness levels and appetite for challenge. If you have an unplanned day in Cape Town, I wholeheartedly recommend spending it with Mother City Hikers. You will create memories to last a lifetime and dream of coming back again!

    I did the Lion's head climb but was a little nervous to go up the chains and ladders and my guide was very accomodating, taking me an alternative path back down the mountain. My guide is a qualified game ranger with 30 plus years experience in the area plus has a background in geology, botany and zoology so I learned so much along the way - about the plants, rock formations etc. i will definitely use this company again and next time I will attempt the chains and ladders because on returning to the bottom I realised that even a lot of pensioners had managed it. I chose to hike with a guide because I did not want to do the climb alone and I am so glad that I did. It was definitely worth it. This company also offers many other hikes in and around Cape town.

    Spoil yourself and do this while visiting Cape Town!! We did the hopper tour (1850R per person) and it was phenomenal! Our pilot Philip was knowledgeable about the area and able to tell us about the major landmarks during our flight. We appreciated the fast communication with the employeevia the website via WhatsApp as the weather was horrible earlier in the day.. and they were able to keep us posting with conditions and still accommodate us last minute! Because no one else was scheduled at the time we arrived, we were able to have a private helicopter tour (without paying extra for it to be private).
