I did the Table Mountain hike with my daughter and son-in-law ( confirmed addicts of steps/slopes).Upon reading that Table Mountain hikes are safest with guides, we chose Hike Table Mountain based on reviews. My daughter did a quick book with Riaan after he got us to submit our fitness levels on 10 (she gave me 4.5) and Riaan replied that... More

We rode the tram had a wonderful hike up on the top. Great... More

We hiked up India Venster with Riaan and it turned out to be the highlight of our trip. Riaan was a great guide, hugely knowledgeable and guided us very well through what was at times a quite challenging route. He also has some great anecdotes from his time on the mountain. The route itself offered fantastic views and we found... More

What a great experience. I would recommend anyone is able to do it, that you hike up rather than get the cable car! Hendre was a fantastic guide who made it both safe and fun! Loved every second of it, even the bits where we had to scramble and climb. One of the best things we did in Cape Town... More

My friend and I booked with Hike Table Mountain to do a hike up Platteklip Gorge, and we had a wonderful day. Our guide was experienced and top notch. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone!

We hiked our way up using the Platteklip Gorge trail. While it was very exhausting we made it in 2h. I would recommend hiking up in the morning and walking around the top in the afternoon. After that you can take the cable car down if needed.

You can do a half hour, flat, easy walk on the Pipe Track, the crazily popular, one and a half hour steep hike up Platteklip, the more adventurous routes up via India Venster or Kasteelpoort, or if you are really not into any effort at all, zoom up with the cable car and mill about on the large flat Table...

On the morning we were due to climb India Venster it was very foggy and Riaan warned us it may not clear. We took the gamble and it totally paid off. As we arrived at the foot of our climb the sun was rising and we were above a blanket of cloud. Stunning views and a fantastic walk up a... More
