“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Table Mountain is the Mother of this City, and to not go up the cable car to the top would be a huge mistake. The views from the top are amazing, from looking west towards Table Bay or looking east towards Constantia or looking South towards Hout Bay and Cape Point, photo opportunities are amazing. This is a must - FYI - book your tickets on line and collect on the day, that way you do not have to wait for hours in the scorching sun with long queues, as your ticket gives you express entry up to the top.

“An Absolute Must-do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

The weather closes the mountain frequently so flexibility is essential but the views from the top are amazing. Don't worry about the cable car - it is absolutely safe and even if you are nervous (like me) it is by no means unpleasant!

“Great View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Lovely view but trip made less memorable by VERY long queues and poor food. We were on the evening run which was beautiful

“The View to Beat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Wow - what views from the huge cable car on the way up and down and from the top itself.
Excellent faciities and information about the fauna and flora on the Mountain and good maps for walking with timings indicated so do have a wander across to the back to see up the East Coast.
Do take a camera and something to keep you warm as it can get cool and the wind does blow.
Keep an eye on the weather forecast as the sight of cloud spilling over the top means it is too windy for the cable car to operate.

Great views and walks, lovely restaurant with good quality food, and the 360 rotating cable car was great!
