Get there early to avoid the queues, but be warned that it can get very cold up on the table, especially if it's a windy day. We went when the tablecloth came in, but still had enough views to make it worth the trip. The free guided tour was well led and hardly used (we were on the first car... More

This is a well-organised attraction but get there early to avoid the queues. The cable car rotates and provides all visitors with an amazing 360 degree view on the way up, the scenery at the top is breathtaking but chilly, make sure you take a cardigan/coat. The weather can change at any moment, so best to keep an eye on... More

We went up with the cable car which was very good, the turning floor in the gondola makes sure that you have a 360 view of the area. The views from the top are amazing, you could see the whole area surrounding Cape town. Make sure to go up when it is clear, as clouds can really quickly block your... More

We were very lucky to have a good weather day and make it up on the cable car before it got too windy. The views were great and the whole operation was very well organised. Would be good if the same company took over Robben island as well.

Breathtaking views from the top as well as many interesting walks. It pays to plan your visit as the queues can be very long and the wait in the hot sun can be unbearable. I went up in April when the queues were reasonable and the weather good. For the more adventurous and fittest amongst you there are walks to... More

My wife and I, along with two other couples, visited Table Mountain in late June during a 4-day stay in Cape Town. Although we were in Cape Town during their rainy season, we truly "lucked out" during our visit. We had spectacular blue skies with the exception of one afternoon during a drive back to town when it really didn't... More

Early morning we were climbing a small trail up to the mountain , weather was warm and we were enjoying the nature and the spectacular views . Whole day we were spending for this walk, it is a must if you visit Cape Town.

Simply a must go to when you are in Cape Town. Just a few points: - When we were in Cape Town the weather could change quite quickly. Table Mountain was only clear on one morning while we were there. While it can be sunny everywhere else Table Mountain can still be cloudy. - The floor in the cable car... More
