Visitors must be warned! We were basically forced to take photos which we were told is included in the ride.
At the end we feel ripped off as we had to pay an additional R250 for privacy reasons. The availability of digital photos is also...More
We were pleasantly surprised how much we saw up there and how many times we went around (6 times in total). It was a clearing day which meant that we saw quiet a bit of the whole waterfront and the mountain. The photos could be...More
Cape Town is breathtaking in this vantage point of the Cape Wheel. Like the London Eye but much smaller. Great experience to get your bearings of the city. However the photo package was way overpriced in relation to the ticket price. I'd definitely do it...More

I might suggest trying to put Table Mountain earlier in your trip. I sometimes happen that the cable cars get shut down, due to wind or cloud cover. So if this were to happen earlier in your vacation, you could reschedule, however you might be out of luck if you plan on visiting towards the end of your vacation. Otherwise it looks like a nice rounded trip.
