We spent just under 3 hours climbing, amazing, this can be done with or without a guide, we choose to do it with a guide and were very happy we did, this was money well spent and for us one of the many highlights of Cape Town, a must do. Graeme and Penny

Need to be in pretty good shape to make it to the top. We made it in about an 1 hour 45 minutes. Unfortunately, was cloudy and windy at the top and could not see a thing. It was like being on another planet!!! Took the Gondola down. Overall still highly recommend despite our bad luck with the views.

Manny, our tour guide, was amazingly informative. The hike was strenuous (all in our party are in excellent shape, working out 5 days a week) so you should consider your fitness level before booking this hike. The hike was very scenic and beautiful and the reward at the top is spectacular. We were very lucky and the weather was very clear and the view was unbelievable. I would highly recommend this hike to anyone interested in taking the difficult path to the top.

From Table Montain, you have a very nice view of Cape Town. Unfortunately, we were not informed that the hike is very hard, and that there was a limited amount of time to hike up and down we arrived around 10h and had to be back at 15h. Traveling guides however indicate that it take three hours to go up, so six hours in total for people without much experience with hiking.
