We had a great time hiking lion's head with our tour guide. He made sure we started early enough that we were at the top with plenty of time to see the sunrise, which was breathtaking. He was really fun and easy to talk to and put us at ease. He also took some photos of us at the top! One concern was that we were not able to be picked up from our hotel in Woodstock because it was out of range - so we had to pay extra for a taxi to pick us up, but then when we arrived, our guide said it would have been no problem for him to have picked us up, and it would have been nice to avoid paying for an extra cab since we already had paid for the tour. We would recommend this hike to anyone traveling to Cape Town. In regards to how difficult the hike was, I was nervous it would be very challenging, but overall found it to be not too challenging - we were up and down in 3 hours, and spent maybe 30 minutes at the top looking at the views.

We did the hike on Jan 2, 2018 leaving the car park at 530 am. Temperature was perfect and great views on the way up and at the top. Our guide Irene was very knowledgeable and great company. Tough enough climb with lots of scrambling. Hike will be closed shortly for repair work. Would recommend but be prepared with good shoes and lots of water.

Guide was great and well prepared with headlights, extra backpacks, water and snacks. We did not receive transport from the hotel to the mountain. Lots of people were doing the hike without a guide so in terms of value for money, this was a bit expensive.

very, very small point but would have been good to make just a little more clear that this route would be exposed to unguarded precipices

The hike was amazing and the scenery was phenomenal. Binny, our guide, was amazing and extremely friendly.
