excepting the whole queue thing to get onto it! Maybe that was just *that* day, of that time of year, but it did take forever.

“Very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Although it was always a long queue..it was worthed to ride on this.. Going up and down very smooth and quicky. But in a cloudy day itwas not advisable to ride this, or the even close it. On a sunny day it was very pleasant

“Best way to the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Best way to the top, buy your tickets ahead and be in the first group of the day. the Cableway does a 360 turn on the way to the top. If you are afraid of heights stand in the middle as the car does not turn there.

“Great ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

There were long queues but they moved really quickly. The cable car revolved 360 degrees, so you had a good view all round - smooth and fast ride.

“Fun trip up the cableway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Worth a trip to the top on the cableway, even though it's a bit pricey. It was cloudy at the top when I went, so didn't really have a view, but still enjoyed it. It was actually closed the first day I was in Cape Town due to weather, so check the web site before you go. If you go on a clear day, there are also some trails you can take on the top. The hop-on hop-off bus stops at the bottom of the cableway, and also provides a scenic trip along the winding roads that lead up to it.
