“Fabulous views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Awesome views of Cape Town, Table Mountain, Devils Peak, Cape Point drive and the Twelve Apostles.
And not so crowded with cars and tourists.

“Sunset here not to be missed”

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!

“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
