Awesome views from Capetowns most noted attraction. High number of visitors considering it is out of season so suspect long queues in peak tourist season but the wait will be worth it. If you are here, it is a must do.

A truly magnificent ride with spectacular views of Cape Town and its surrounds (even Robben island can be seen). Try pick out the the various attractions of CT from above. The cableway is quite high and the journey takes under 10mins - not for those afraid of heights. The cable cars rotate for a truly panoramic view, it is reasonably... More

Fantastic experience - Day 2 after annual maintenance. Calendar card with revolving floor was excellent - an all round view on the way up and on the way down. No cloud and incredible views.

We were told that the view from the top of Table Mountain was an absolute must-see in Cape Town and that advice was certainly no exaggeration. We decided to go there before lunch as the day was very clear and although there was a slight wait to board the cable car when we arrived, the lines moved smoothly and were... More

If you are not up for hiking up, you could take the cable car. It was very nice, and the views were spectacular. Everybody get the chance to see everything, as it rotates inside. You could pay with cash or card, one way or round trip tickets available. They were organized neatly.

What a great view of Cape Town and Table Mountain. I'm afraid of heights but it didn't stop me taking the steep cable ride to the top. Well worth it

This is a great ride which to take on the way down after a hike up Table Mountain. The cabin rotates to give all a good view of the surrounds. Slightly expensive perhaps - it is often much cooler at the top so take some warm clothes.

We were told that we must take this cable car ride to the top because it would be a Magnificent Sunset, the best we have ever seen. Well, we grew up and live on the west coast of Florida and have seen hundreds of beautiful sunsets. We love going to California, and making sure that we enjoy the sunset. So... More
