Went on two outings. The first was to the Cape Point National Park where we walked the Shipwreck Trail, and stopped by Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point. Later on we drove to Boulders to see the penguins. The second was a hike up Table Mountain starting at the western face, through echo valley and ending at the cable car. It goes without saying that the views were spectacular. Binny was a great guide who knows the trails at the back of her hand and showed us points of interest that we wouldn’t have found had we done the hike on our own. Her patience, encouragement, safety-consciousness and wealth of experience (and snacks!) made the outings thoroughly enjoyable and informative. Hiking with Ridgway Ramblers would be great for all levels of experience but particularly useful for newer hikers or first-timers to Cape Town as Binny makes astute recommendations and decisions based on the group strength and what they are hoping to achieve for the day. Thanks for everything, Binny!

I trekked with Binny back in 2014 up Table Mts and enjoyed it so much i came back this time round with friends to repeat the hike. We did 2 separate hikes in Cape Point National Park and Table Mts via a different route.
Binny is very organized and helpful in planning the trip with us. Thanks for being so patient throughout our 100 photo stops! It was great fun and i highly recommend rambling with her.

Binny was a fantastic guide for my daughter's birthday 'party' - a hike through the Orange Kloof Nature Reserve, to the Woodhead Dam, on top of the mountain, and down to Constantia Nek via the Jeep track. The scenery was beautiful, and we especially enjoyed finding the Tunnel, and the cool Disa Gorge greenery, the ferns and beautiful Disa!! Binny surprised the birthday girl with a delicious banana loaf birthday cake, complete with candles! Thank you for a great day out enjoying Cape Town's nature.

I would highly recommend this hike! Binny is an exceptional guide for ALL levels of hiking. In addition to her enthusiasm for the local ecosystems as well as her vast knowledgeable re flora and fauna of Table Mountain, Binny is also incredibly patient; Binny makes everyone feel at ease while hiking. Furthermore, Binny is extremely punctual. We arranged for our pickup at our Airbnb at 7AM and she was already waiting a good five minutes in advance. Of course, he view from the top of Table Mountain is quite spectacular. Overall, a wonderful experience & certainly a highlight during my visit in Cape Town! Thumbs up for Binny!

What a fantastic hike, Binny has a vast knowledge of Table Mountains history, flowers , wildlife and surrounding areas. And also best surfing spots on the Cape. Her pace made it an enjoyable hike that suited all levels of fitness in our group. I'm all ready planning to hike more of Table Mountain next year and without a doubt will have Binny as my guide again. Thanks a million Binny got a fantastic hike .
