“TM Ariel Cableway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We hiked up Table Mountain, but thought the panoramic ride down would be yet another highlight of the day, it was. Saw the rappelers belaying down TM, will maybe try that next time!

“360 degrees views of Cape Town and surrounds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Wonderful views, peaceful walks, animals like rock hyrax and lizards visible close-up. The cable car offers a breathtaking smooth ride up and down and provides great photo opportunities. Fresh, cool air. Access to restaurant and tourist shop on top of the mountain.

“Amazing View Of Cape Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Enjoyed this attraction while visiting Cape Town. Lunch at the cafe on the mountain was good. You can walk at your own pace. You can capture great scenic photos of Cape Town.

“Arrive later in the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We arrived at 09:15 which we hoped would miss the early morning rush but I guess we were a bit late. The wait was about 40 mins which isn't a great pain. When we came down at 12:00 no queue at all. Not sure if its the same every day. Next time were going for the walk up looks a good challenge.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Neat cablecar that revolves as it goes up. Open sides so the wind comes in. Quite a sight as one ascends the mountain.
