“Beautiful attraction not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

After hiking up this mountain, in extremely hot waether we finally arrived at the top (journey similar to Machu Pichu). What a view it was really amazing. The cable car down was much appreciated!

“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.
