This place is amazing! Don’t believe me? You have to try it for yourself! One of the greatest views I’ve ever seen in the world! It is a must in Cape Town to go up to the top!

Took the cable car up. Effortless and quick, but get there early with a paid ticket. The views are beyond description. The truth is that it is more than a "view", it's serene, it's exciting and it's restorative. Absolutely, go and see this wonder.

Didn't really know what to expect but had a fantastic walk around the top of TM after taking the cable car up. We went at about 1.30, booked tickets on line and seemed to miss any queues that people had talked about.
