Walking up to the top of Table Mountain is surely one of the greatest pleasures in life. But if you don't know the mountain, then I suggest you take a guide - and there are no better guides around than Margaret and Pietro. I was scheduled to do two walks with Margaret at the end of January 2014, but as she was temporarily out of the country I ended up walking with Pietro. He proved to be a superb guide, charming and courteous, with a great knowledge of the mountain and the many routes up it. On the first walk, we went up Cecilia Ridge to Maclear's Beacon - a tough walk in the mid-summer sun, and then came down via Nursery Ravine. Overall it was a superb hike, and it made for a very memorable and satisfying day. As I have already walked Skeleton, Platteklip and Kasteelspoort with Margaret (in 2012 and 2013), I chose to go up Lion's Head for my second walk with Pietro. This was a lovely route, some scrambling here and there but otherwise fine. And the views throughout are superb. Pietro was attentive at all times, and was such a good companion - as indeed Margaret is. If you are thinking of walking up (and down) Table Mountain, please do so, as it is such a memorable thing to do. And if you choose Margaret or Pietro you will be assured of walking with the very best.
