We decided to do a guided hike up table mountain as we were unsure about safety if not taking the most well known routes. Our guide was Liesl and she was great. We were a group of 6 people plus our guide and did the twelve apostles route. Liesl was very knowledgable about the flora and was a very encouraging guide, explaining the route to us as we went. It was a very memorable experience and well worth the cost. I would definitely recommend it.

Usually this popular hikes are a bit on the boring side, but not this one (and not with Mike, a super hiking guide). The trail is really great, beautiful landscape, a bit of fitness needed as you just walk up and also a bit of an adventur for the climbing parts. And of course, the view on Cape Town from different angles is spectacular. I just loved this early morning trip. If we would have been longer in CT, I definitely would have done another hike or two with Hike Table Mountain.

Me and my other half completed this hike and didn’t regret it.

Darren the guide was great and on the small climbing parts helped us out.

If you are thinking of doing the easier route I was as well but the most strenuous part of this hike was actually before the path splits from that route.

As others have said, I thoroughly recommend both the route and this company.

Thank you Hendre for a fantastic morning hiking up table mountain....I would recommend this hike to everyone it was the highlight of our stay in Cape Town.
From the get go Riaan was so helpful and accommodating - our luggage was lost en route to South Africa so we had to postpone the hike a few days which wasn’t a problem for him, thank you again! We met Hendre at 5.45 and commenced the hike, there were 6 of us in total on the hike and we basically had the mountain to ourselves! A decent Fitness level is required and be prepared for some scrambling and climbing but it is so much fun and the views just make it so worthwhile! We got up the mountain in 2hrs 40 mins or so and it was only beginning to get busy as the cable car commences at 7.30/8 - it feels great to walk by people getting off the cable car knowing you just hiked up the mountain!!
I would highly recommend this trip, we were back in the hotel by 10am having breakfast!
Thank you again Hendre for a wonderful morning!!

We met our guide Mike at 6.15am outside our hotel on the V&A waterfront. After a short 15 minute drive we arrived at the start of our climb and met up with other hikers who were part of our group. Mike was an excellent guide showing the appropriate hand and foot holds for the tricky parts of the climb. There was some scrambling and use of chains and steel hand/foot supports, but with Mikes guidance these were easily navigated. We reached the top in about 3 hours, after experiencing some of the most stunning views of Cape Town you could only imagine. In our opinion this is the only way to see Table Mountain, provided you have a medium level of fitness and head for heights. It also allows you to get your bearings of Cape Town. We certainly recommend Mike our guide and “Hike Table Mountain”
