Clear warm day it was fabulous. The views and the size of the mountain in perspective of the city are breath taking. I would also recommend if you have a car head over to the lions head to view back to table mountain. This is one of the better things I have done in this years travels!

Very over-hyped and average attraction. Better views can be had from Rock of Gibraltar. Also numerous other places around the world where the city has beautiful architecture and is flanked by sea and higher mountains. Just take a look at Hobart. S Africans seem to cash in on the so-called Table Mountain which is a rather dull and barren plateau.... More

Liked the view disliked the taxi back from the mountain back to the city. So glad I went while I was in Cape Town for my nieces wedding. Only there for a few days though so didn't see too much of Cape Town

If you want to go there, it is best to plan a bit in advance. The cablecar is not working when it is windy or foggy. Try to be there before the busses arrive, queueing up there in the blazing sun is not enjoyable. Or you need to spend the time on climbing the mountain. The mountain is a national... More

Plan this trip as soon as u land in Cape town, because if the climate is bad, then you will miss out on the amazing views from the top. We took the cableway to the top. We were able to get the kids to ride free, due a Kids special, for family with 2 kids. This was advertised on their... More

If you visit Cape Town you HAVE to go up Table Mountain! What a view, it's just amazing. And there are quite a few hiking trails on top. Basically you can spend a whole day up there. But buy your ticket beforehand as standing in line can take quite a while. Plus check the wind forecast. Sometimes they have to... More

As I was here for a day had no option but to go up even when the visibility wasnt good.. the best part is before you book your tickets online or even at the counter they mention abt the visibility conditions on top so if you want you can go some other time. I did not book online as it... More

Visited Table Mountain during a busy holiday week in Africa so I was pleased that I had booked tickets online. This meant an express line to the cable car and an early start to our walk atop the mountain. The sky was clear and blue. Absolutely amazing. Spent a good half a day wandering on top of the mountain before... More
