Prefer to complete on the first day incase of any bad weather ropeway might be canceled so its must place to visit so complete this on the first day. It will take around 1 to 1.5 to spend. Wheelchair accessable

Travelled up Table Mountain in glorious sunshine after having spent about an hour queuing for the cable car. We had bought tickets online, and didn't expect to have to queue for quite so long, but once on the cable car and at the top it was well worth the wait. It was extremely busy at the top and quite tricky... More

Family visiting from Australia wanted to do the mountain visit. Definitely worth visiting with us being fortunate that the weather was great. Booking in advance on the "Red Bus" also well advised. Restaurant on the top is also pretty good.

a must when you travel to cape town but beware that it can be very busy and there are huge queues and it is best advised to go early in the morning..also the weather can be changeable and a mist or heavy rain can come in very quickly...cable car is great and the views are amazing

First visit and it takes your breath away (literally) With pre booked tickets we avoided the long queues. The panoramas are stunning. The paths are generally even and easy to traverse. The cafè serves a wide variety of food and beverages. Unmissable.

You could have look of Whole Cape Town from the Top of the Mountain . This place requires weather conditions to be normal and never try on windy day because any time they may ask you to come back if it is windy . View from the Top is Fantastic .

Very touristy so if you want to ride the cable car up get there before they open. Also check the weather, any amount of wind will close down the cable car.

A must do while visiting Cape Town. We did the Platteklip Gorge hike which offered stellar views and then took the cableway back down
