Our guide Henk was fantastic! He was so knowledgeable about the local plants and birds. Our 10 year old son loved talking to him and finding his little secret spots with caves etc. We took the Kasteel route to the top which ended up being about 6km with a 1000 meter elevation gain over 5 hours. It was an amazing hike, but you need to be in good shape and ready to climb some rock stairs! Henk was kind enough to take some really great pictures of our family with his camera and forward them on to us. We now have net year's holiday card! We have hiked all over North America and Europe and this hike was one of our all time favorites. We were definitely happy to take the lovely cable car down at the end of the trip for the fantastic views and our tired legs.

I purchased the ticket which included a trip up Table Mountain. I .truly enjoyed this adventure. The bus ride was exceptional as it provided very good information on local landmarks. It also enjoyed the route. It allowed one to see much of Cape Town and even to see places they might want to come back to. The bus was extremely clean.

What an experience! Our guide was so knowledgeable and engaging, he talked to us the whole time about the history of the places we visited and their significance in South Africa. The tour really made us feel as if we really knew Cape Town by the end. Highly highly recommend! Thank you Ahmaud (our guide) for an awesome time.

Had a fantastic time today with Tresor as our guide - would definitely recommend this tour, especially if you aren’t staying in Cape Town for long!

It was good we enjoyed even the staff were so friendly n helpful
