Customer Reviews

The actual experience of abseiling down table mountain was great. The guys were fantastic, giving a lot of help and encouragement - my wife was really apprehensive before and during the decent but they "talked her down" all the way. Unfortunately the walk back up spoilt it for us ! It took us over an hour - my wife is quite short and really struggled climbing up / down over the very large rocks which constituted the "track" in many places. It had also rained a lot (and was actually raining when we did it) and the rocks were very wet and slippery with water literally running across them. I highly recommend it - but beware of the track and the weather. - Roger Benson


Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so thrilled with the entire process It was my 52 birthday on the day and decided that that was the day it was going to happen as its free to go up Table Mountain on your birthday that was the extra incentive I searched the options to abseil on Table Mountain the night before and book very easily online (no turning back now) I happen to know Roy who use to work with us at our Cafe in Steenberg He and all the guys were really amazing, professional, friendly and great to have had my first abseil experience with and yes i have been recommending this experience with your company to all I know Unbelievable thank you to you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Peta Sarkis


I loved my abseiling experience on Table Mountain! The team was very professional and helped me to feel perfectly at ease during my first abseiling experience. I can't think of a better way to experience Cape Town! - Brittany Riggs


Lots of fun! Would recommend to anyone considering it. I descended in fog the first time and did it again in sunshine. The gentleman helping (Howard and I can’t recall the other name) were thorough and very nice. - Brenda McAfee


My family and I really enjoyed the thrill of our abseil. The staff were all friendly, courteous, polite but most importantly professional and we felt we were in safe hands which was pretty important when we went over the edge! We were sorry we had left our cameras at the top as there were some great photo opportunities on the 50 minute walk back up. - Claire Leckey
