The cable car trip is well worth doing and the fact it rotates ensures you get an all round view. Well organised and able to cope with the volume of visitors. Don't be put off by early morning cloud - it should clear affording spectacular views.

Table mountain is a must for anyone visiting Cape Town. Best views of the city. Pick a day with little wind and no clouds on the mountain. Between 9-11 is best in summer months. Cable car is the quickest way of getting up and down.

Great service, great facilities, cable car is fantastic. Wear good walking shoes, and be aware the weather can change suddenly. Parking can be a bit of a challenge.

The ride to the top of Table Mountain. On the cable car that rotated on the way up and down so you saw the views 360 degrees. The view from the top was awesome. You could see all of Cape Town and Robben Island. We went up in late afternoon so we were there to watch the beautiful sunset. If... More

Remember to check with your hotel on weather conditions as it can get windy, cold and misty in minutes. Go early in the day.

Too fast to enjoy the scenes! We went up hiking the mountain and came down the cable way. Check the local weather before you make the trip to Table mountain. Cable car is closed on days of showers and wind.

The Cable car journey up Table mountain is a must see! Always take a Jacket. Was not prepared for the beautiful views. Have a glass of bubbly and enjoy one of the most amazing views in the world
