“Good for the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

The Cable car is a great way to see the city landscape after some serious shopping without having to climb loads of hills.

I like going on the Cable Car because it is cheap and it has a cafe up the road and great value.

Nice views

“Good way of getting to the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

One cable car ride is much like another but the views when you get there are terrific. Staff at the top were extremely helpful and showed us the best spot for a photo and gave clear guidance on the best route to walk down via the botanic garden and the rose garden both of which are fab. (You don't have to walk down of course)

“Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

This is a great way to get to the Wellington Botanic Garden's. Take the cable car up to the entrance to the gardens and walk your way down.

“Just Part Of A Fabulous Outing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

As Gold Card holders we are able to use the Cable Car free of charge for most of the day, so in September we packed a picnic lunch, took the bus to the terminus and rode to the top. There are beautiful views once up there, and it is just a short walk to the Botanical Gardens. It was a glorious day and the tulips were just a sea of colour once we reached the lower levels. Pensioners, this outing cost us nothing !! If just doing the Cable Car ride, less than an hour is sufficient, but if the gardens are included allow several hours.
