This should be regarded as one of the wonders of the world. On a good day hordes of people queue up jot view the magnificent city of Cape Town. Restaurant is amazing and well stocked to cater for all tastes. One could spend a good view hours simply enjoying the great atmosphere.

Top of the mountain is an exciting place for the young ones. When you have young family members visiting you, they definitely will enjoy being on the top of the mountain. It's a world-renowned place of entertainment and the children love to go back and boast to their friends back home. They just love to be let loose to explore... More

Table mountain great views and good value cable car gives easy access for all. Well marked paths. Definitely worth doing longer walk to ??? Access on foot possible but challenging and we did not find following the route easy. We would advise either very detailed map and instructions or guide to get the most out of the walk.

Buy your tickets online and try to plan your visit during the weekdays to avoid looong lines. Bring a hat with you in case the line gets longer than the shade area. The view is beautiful and there are free guided walking tours starting every hour. That's when you face the terrifying facts about the mountain. Apparently there are five... More

A great view for most of the visit before the fog returned/. We watched some intrepid cliff climbers on the others ide of the mountain and were freaked by what they were doing,. We took this trip as part of a day tour and it was a good finish to the day

Amazing views all around the mountain. It's a must if you are staying in Cape town! The cable car is very quick and runs up and down quite often. Costs around 225 rand there and back, but it's worth it! You can walk up and down for free but be prepared for a very long and quite difficult hike.

Very much worth the ride up the scary tram! Beautiful views of the landscape! Take money - of course, there are things to buy at the top, including photos.

This is a sight to go visit. Just make sure you dont go when the weather is bad. The view from there is really breath taking. If you can Id suggest you take some snacks up with you. O and in the summer a light jacket....just in case.
