Irene was our guide for the sunrise Lions Head hiking tour and she was brilliant from start to finish! She was so welcoming, knowledgeable about the wildlife and city whilst we hiked and really encouraging when there were steeper/ challenging climbs towards the top. I would highly recommend having Irene as your guide for this trip if you end up booking!

Really amazing experience. Easy to meet up, pleasant hiking. The guide is giving very interesting information about the plants on the route and suggestions to ease your way up. She knows the best spot to watch the sunset and provided coffee and the best sweets I would go again and do other routes with the guide Fatima.

Fatima was the most incredible guide we could have asked for! The knowledge of the mountain, the plants, the animals, the actual trek itself was amazing. She got the most amazing photos and video for ourselves which we will treasure forever! I highly recommend requesting her as your guide - truley the best!

The trail leading up to Lions is well marked. My guide, Irene was careful and knowledgeable about local fauna & flora. It was a great experience from start to finish. Would highly recommend. JoAnne. dxb.
