George Skaris

Skaris is extremely witty, knowledgeable, organised and entertaining.. he delivers what he sets out to achieve. He does more than required and always goes the extra mile, no questions.... there is no clock watching with him. he knows how to read people so not to interfere with their personal space and time.. (this take years of experience to achieve) He is friendly and very likable so guests are treated like Rock Stars in all venues he uses for meals etc... George makes a real effort to give guests their value for money and more. Because its his business and he is the man doing the guiding, driving, marketing, sales, delivery, he makes sure its 100% as its pride at stake.. i guess that is his success..

Ian Slatem

Western Cape
Ian Slatem

He introduced me to the activity of rock climbing when he met me after a full briefing to ensure I had everything I required in order for the day. We used the Cable Car to get to the top of the mountain and then he guided me down abseiling 100m to the base of the climb. We then climbed three routes including Jacobs Ladder, Atlantic Crag and Africa Crag which have to be three of the most spectacular routes anywhere with great steep exposed hard climbing in the most spectacular environment. I felt absolutely safe and confident in Ian's ability to maage the situations we encountered. This was the best climbing I have ever done and so well gided.
