“Sunset here not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We ended our perfect trip to Cape Town with a superb bottle of wine, picnic basket and to-die-for sunset from the top of Signal Hill. A perfect ending to a perfect trip!

Great place to watch the sun set over the Atlantic we went up on the Double Decker bus and glad that we did, there was a lot of traffic.

“Sunset on Signal Hill - a Sight to behold”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We ensured we travelled up Signal Hill in time to watch the sun set. - what a party atmosphere. Everyone in a festive spirit and then as the sun gradually makes its way across the sky - everyone was breathless - those who were in their senses remembered to take photos - certainly something I will do again

“Best place to go to watch the sun set over the Atlantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Table Mountain may be closed but never Signal Hill. The consolation spot for not going up to the Table Mountain, is actually quite beautiful itself. The amazing views of the coastline and the city with the setting sun in the background makes it worth a visit.
