We just finished a private hike with Lynette up the 12 Apostles route. Our guide was very accommodating and ensured we were always comfortable with the pace and difficulty of the hike. It turned out we were fitter than we gave ourself credit for and made good time. The route took us through some quieter parts of the mountain and at times you could imagine we were the only souls on the mountain. Our guide was full of local knowledge and regularly stopped to explain fauna and flora as we as the opportunities to photograph the spectacular scenery. When we reached the cable car station it was unfortunately shrouded in a tablecloth of clouds obscuring the view of table bay, but we enjoyed our time so much we’ll be making another trip up the mountain later in the week when the weather is more favorable for photography. All in all a great morning out and we would highly recommend this hike! If we return to Cape Town we might try some of the other tracks with this company.

Up early to catch the sunrise, our wonderful guide Liesl led us skilfully up an 8km route from Camps Bay to the top of the mountain. We were part of a small group and Liesl quickly made us all feel at ease. She is an incredibly kind and generous guide, sharing her bountiful knowledge and passion for the mountain as we hiked and scrambled, gently encouraging and supporting the group at every stage. We learnt so much about the history of the mountain, the trails, the incredible flora and eco system and how to avoid the crowds! A truly memorable experience and a must for anyone with a passion for mountains.

What a brilliant day, both in terms of our experience and the blue skies we were presented with by Mother Nature! Our route took us through some stunning scenery giving us the opportunity to see beautiful birds, flowers and of course the views! An unforgettable experience :-D

Me & my wife hiked up 12 Apostles and down Platteklip Gorge *by choice* on a private tour with our guide Liesl who was absolutely brilliant, she was well knowledged about the mountain and cape town, telling us interesting things along the way. Couldn't have asked for a better guide, a very inspirational character. The hike itself had breathtaking views of the sunrise as well as seeing both sides of the mountain by hiking up 12 apostles with a view of camps bay and hiking back down with a view of Cape town via Platteklip Gorge. We learnt lots about the mountain itself with Liesl who made the hike all about us, stopping to take pictures for us to keep as memories. Also she managed to inspire us both to then hike Lions head two days later! Also worth a visit. Best to do Table mt. with a guide, you could easily get lost of fog but also because they make it such an interesting hike! well worth the money and one of the best things we have done together as a couple. Private tour well advised!
