Apart from the poor sign posted public parking, the rest of the trip was well organized. We booked tickets the day before and went early the following morning. Cable cars are fast and efficient. Once on top of table mountain the paths are well sign posted and the views amazing. The resturant and coffee shop although a bit pricy is... More

We purchased tickets in advance (at Cape Town Intl Airport) to skip the lines of people. What a fun ride with great views. The floor rotates so everyone gets a view of everything. What surprised us the most was how fast the cable car gets up there. Well worth the trip, especially on a nice clear day!

My first time in Cape Town, and it was wonderful, the rotating cable car was just too cool, and the views on the way to the top and from the top are breathtaking.

Wow, this was one of the best views I have ever experienced in my travels. A sunny day, blue skies and the feeling you are standing on top of the world to appreciate the amazing panoramic views of the cape coast line. This was unbelievable and jaw dropping. That cable ride to the top is quick, around a minute and... More

In the morning veryone goes so a big amount of people. Better book online. Unfortunately when we went there was a technical problem. So they refunded us and we came at sunset and it worked perfectly.

Going to the top of Table Mountain was amazing. The views were great and it was so fun being in the clouds on top of the mountain. Plus the cableway rotates when you are in it so you can see all the views on your way up and down.
