Your memorable Table Mountain Hiking Tour begins when you are picked up at your city center hotel and driven to Table Mountain, where you will be dropped at the Lower Cable Car Station.

You’ll enjoy the great outdoors, delighting in the chance to explore a fabulous and diverse mountain range up close and personal!

An experienced mountain guide will lead the way to the summit.From there, you’ll enjoy spectacular views down to the Cape of Good Hope and get a feel for the size of the mountain you’ve just climbed.

After your exhilarating hike, you can take the cable car back down to the bottom (fare not included) and you’ll be then driven back to your hotel in Cape Town. Here your tour concludes and you are free to enjoy the evening at your leisure.
