Cliff is an incredible guide. We hiked Table Mountain from the lower cable car station to the top along a less traditional, more adventuresome trail, recommended by Cliff--it was the best thing we did in Cape Town and one of the most memorable experiences of our lives.
Before we began hiking, Cliff asked us questions about our fitness levels, time constraints, and what sort of experience we were looking for. He then recommended the best hike for us, which definitely exceeded our expectations. He guided us along a challenging and extremely rewarding route while pointing out the best photographic opportunities along the way.
Cliff offers door-to-mountain-to-door service. He picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, helping us to avoid the hassle of scheduling separate transportation. He packed snacks (even local ones like biltong--a South African jerky), waters, and sweatbands for us. He took breaks with us when necessary and kept himself at our pace. He was really attentive and helpful.
Cliff is kind, knowledgeable, and full of good conversation. He provided fun and interesting facts about the flora and fauna indigenous to Table Mountain, Cape Town and the surrounding suburbs, and South African culture in general. He was able to give us recommendations for wineries and restaurants and was very patient as we snapped photos all the way up the mountain. He also took a ton of frameworthy photos of us.
We honestly couldn't be happier. Cliff's tour made our Cape Town trip!
