“Unbelievable...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

This amazing mountain looms over the city and beaches with absolutely astonishing views every time you glance up at it...It is so massive, and even from the sea, an unforgettable, unmistakable landmark...impressive, and somehow welcoming at the same time...

“You have to do it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

A clear blue sky dawned and we dropped everything and dashed for the cable car. I guess everything that could be said has already been said about this stupendous experience but it's all true. Do it and the memory will never leave you

“One of the world's most dramatic places. Our best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The views are just stunning. Our best tip is to always look at the weather early morning and on the first clear day get to the cable car by 9 to avoid the queues. Do not wait for another clear day as you might not get one.

“TABLE ON TOP OF THE CAPE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Table mountain is the most dominating as well as fascinating land mark of Cape Town. Almost every area of the Cape and its sorroundings is visible from the top,especially when no clouds. The scene from the cable car is equally amazing.From the Cape Point to Table Bay and from Hout Bay till vineyards of the EAST everything appears micro in size. The climbing track from the southern face to the top though gruesome is worth the effort due change of scenery on every turn. Recommended for each visitor to the Cape.
