I Thought I was going to be scared and freak out. But it wasn't scary at all. It was great! It went smoothly and I will go again.

This is one of the most spectacular views in the world. Wait for a wind free day with clear skies and you wont be disappointed. It was fun for our entire family and whenever we have foreign guests we take them up and enjoy it ourselves just as much each time.

The views from atop table mountain are unlike anything you will ever see! As a local and as an international tourist. During peak season it is packed, but that doesn't take away from the beauty and amazing walking trails. The tours are cool and insightful. Over all, a nice way to spend a few hours on a mountain.

You cannot visit CPT without a trip on the Cableway. The experience and the views are simply breath-taking! Perfect for sunrise, sunsets, romantic date nights or for a good hiking trail. The staff are friendly and helpful and there are so many people to meet from all over the world.

I am not a fan of heights at all, but this was an amazing time going up the cable car and spending New Years eve on top of the awesome Table Mountain with friends, looking down at the fire works.

Superb view of the mother city of Cape Town.Was a bit chilly so next time I must bring something warm along to wear as the weather is really unpredictable.I really disliked the long wait to the restaurant's access.

My first trip up the mountain was in 1983 with the old Cable Car, it was about the size of a loaf of bread ;) I've been up in the new Cable Car and what a pleasure. I have a slight fear of heights but not once did I feel nervous on the Cable Car. It slowly rotates 360 degrees... More
