We took the hop-on hop-off bus to Table Mountain and prebooked our tour online which saved us a bit. Everything is well sign posted. The staff were friendly and efficient. The bathrooms on top are clean and modern. The restaurant and curio shop are beautifully presented but a littlepricey - to be fair that was expected. I thoroughly enjoyed it.... More

Buying ticket was easy, it is swift and gives you a great view as it turns as you go up. It's great! The view is stunning, wait for a clear day and go! When you're up there the cafe us surprisingly good too.

I loved the cable car to the top of the mountain. When you first arrive you think the lines are huge however each car takes many people. So the lines move quickly . The national park at the top is interesting. With a rocky landscape & great plants to photograph. There are places to purchase food & drink at the... More

We went beginning June and had a beautifull clear day, little chilly but the view was spectacular. I havent been up with the new cable car yet rotating one so it was a nice experience to see a 360 view. The restaurant has also improved alott in terms of quality and variety. Overall a must do if you want to... More

A visit to Table Mountain is an excellent way to see Cape Town and the surrounding vistas. Our visit to Table Mountain had weather that was so perfect that we would have paid for it. The cable car on the ride up and back rotates 360 degrees to give a good view to all of the passengers. A visit to... More

Such a beautiful view of Cape Town - captivating. When I visited, there were a group of men on their walk singing a cappella - A superb accompaniment to one of the world's most stunning scenes. I couldn't help but fall in love with Cape Town after my visit to Table Mountain. A wonderful experience - A must see!!

Well worth the ticket price to avoid the hike! Buy your tickets online in advance to avoid the lines. Get there early as well and you'll not have a very long wait to get on the Cableway and up to the top of Table Mountain!

Rode on the cableway in early July. Great panoramic views during the ride up and down. Small port holes above the windows allow you to take unobstructed pics of the area.

When we woke up to a clear sunny morning our first day in Cape Town we knew we should make our visit to the top of Table Mountain right away. We had debated making the hike to the top, but with only a few days in Cape Town we opted to take the speedier cable car, and I'm glad we... More

Table Mountain is a gift to the world. The table top is an incredible way to see the city but a hike to the top truly showcases the wonder of nature. The streams offer the sweetest water which is an absolute treat. The lines for the cable car can get very long (hours) and there is limited seating and shelter... More
