We did several hikes with Barry over the last years and it was always a great experience. Barry knows Table mountain and all the surroundings inside out and it is great fun to go on hikes with him. Not only knows he the routes very well but he is always well prepared for weather conditions and unforeseen events. He takes good care on the party he is hiking with, on their likes and dislikes and their fitness.
He will points out to flora and fauna and always has good ideas for another exciting trip. It's always very entertaining to hike with him. One can do very sportive/ demanding trips or family trips and always has a fabulous time.

And besides he knows Cape Town very well and can give you valuable tips on where to dine or what place to visit. So it's an allover experience with Barry.

Barry is THE best Table Mountain guide currently operating. His knowledge is based not only on Table Mountain but the surrounding ranges as well.

Barry will go out of his way to find a rout that is suitable for your party and the weather conditions guaranteeing you a great day out.

Hike Cape Town is particularly good with children and young adults and will take the time to point out all the exciting and unique things spotted on the trail.

Highly recommended!

As a reasonably experienced Hill Walker in UK I considered it vital that I have a guide to take me up into the Table Mountain range.It is more dangerous than you think especially when the tablecloth descends.Barry is an excellent leader and his knowledge of the routes on the mountain exemplary.He passes on his knowledge of the fauna in an interesting way so that you are never bored.If you are in Cape Town in January get him to take you to see the Disa Orchid.

I have had the pleasure of doing many mountain running and hiking adventures with Barry Washkansky and have always been impressed by his professionalism and incredible knowledge of the mountains and trails around Cape Town and beyond. An adventurous guide but with a great eye for safety and the comfort of those accompanying him. He also has the knack of gauging the level and abilities of the group he is with and adjusting the activities accordingly and allowing people to get full value from their experience. If you want to see parts of the Cape mountains that few people get to enjoy, then this is the man to go with, even if you're a local and think that you know the mountains. There will be some big surprises for you.

Whether you want to experience a gentle hike up and around Table Mountain or an adventurous hike, climb or scramble in some of the less known parts of the Western Cape, Barry is your man! On all the trips that I went with him, he was always very professional and very level headed. Checking out routes for potential group runs, he always provides great advice on route choices and alternatives for different experience levels. I trust him with my life.
