Great experience

We chose to use the cable car to get to the top of the rock. There are a few stairs up to the cable car station which was tricky with a buggy. We were however grateful that we did... read more

Thought it a "tad" expensive,in excess of £10 all classes,but hey!You're suppose to be on holiday.Each enclosed cable car holds approx 20 people.The ride,operated by an on-board official takes about 6/7 minutes and to be honest,you hardly feel you're moving.One of our friends who was with us was a bit fearful at first as she doesn't like heights,but although she...

Hard to fault this - I wanted a cable car to get me to the top of the rock so an important business meeting in the cafe. It got me to the top. Job done. If I have to try and find flaws to offer a balanced perspective, I'd say it was a bit cramped on the passage up, with... More

We went up the cable car today. It's a very steep ride but the views of the harbour as you go up are amazing then when you get to the top more great views. Would recommend.

The cable car is not that exciting but the views from the top are well worth the trip. If it's a ride you want this is not it. But to see Africa and Monkeys then it definitely is the trip to take. For the very energetic you can walk up.

The cable car is the only way to get to the "Top of the Rock' as the tour cabs don't go all the way. We took the cable car up and enjoyed the views during the ride. The ride itself was very smooth. At the top, on this day near the cable car station, was a large group of monkeys... More

Have titled the review as the cable car can close very suddenly if bad weather occurs. My recommendation is to travel up in the car and walk down. I bought a return ticket but found that I was the other end of the nature reserve to walk back. So ended up wasting money. As with any attraction there is a... More

Personally, I found the cable car itself very good, though when it came to walking back down, I & my partner found the maps to be not very 'to scale', the signposts not very helpful in getting you back down, and it's also a very long walk, so if you're not pretty fit, then make sure you either get a...

Not being a big fan of cable cars I was hesitant to take this trip but I decided to do it anyway so I wouldn't miss out on this experience. The ride to the top and the bottom is extremely smooth. At the top are fabulous views of the surrounding areas. The monkeys are abundant. Be extremely careful, they are... More

I had planned to go on the cable car during my visit and checked online that it was open. it closes during winter months for a while for maintainance so check before you go. It also closes sometimes due to high winds making it unsafe to use. If you get there and see them testing the cars then generally that... More
