A must do in Cape Town, the cableway trip to Table Mountain was a great way to spend a couple of hours. We went early in the day when the winds were calm, and had purchased tickets in advance through the hotel concierge. This eliminated disappointment due to wind closure, and avoided the relatively long lines. Still, there is a... More

Its a must in Cape Town and I would love to go again and again. It has a large platform which revolves 360 degree and give a chance to view the beauty of the surroundings to everyone.

I don't think walking to the top of Table Mountain is an option for most of us so we take the cable car. It is very large and holds a lot of people. Interesting in that it revolves around so everyone gets all views.

When in Cape Town there is one stop you have to make. The Cable Car is one of the most popular attractions in the Mother City. I live in Cape Town and have been up about 10 times just because it relaxing and you can never get tired of the views. The car itself is modern and the floor rotates... More

Views are great and exciting to experience a revolving cable car. Unfortunately, a little expensive I feel, especially for local South Africans. That is the problem with most tourist attractions in SA, they don't give a more affordable rate for locals, quite sad actually!

The best time to go up to the top is about an hour before sunset, then you can get the sunset special - two tickets for the price of one. It doesn't seem to be too crowded at this time of the day and you can take a picnic and a bottle of wine and watch the sun sink into... More

If you don't have a car, the next best thing is the 1st Red bus (Sunday morning very quiet) which only stops in the city 3 times then travels direct to TM. OK, this place will always be busy but only waited 5- 10mins from buying ticket to getting on the cableway. Views are stunning but if, like me, having... More

If it's clear of the tablecloth, this is a must-do. The walk looks pretty tedious and steep and is very exposed and life is too short. Initially put off by what appeared to be long queues actually they move very quickly, and you don't even need to jostle for position in the car as it rotates giving everyone a chance... More
