Magical you can see a wonderful view of the entire waterfront and its beautiful mountains, the service was great and personalized attention. The only thing I did not like was that when I left they offered me some photos and they were already printed, the truth is I did not like the quality of the printing very much so I told the girl that I did not. but she didn't take this with a good attitude. I would recommend before printing the photos to show the client if he wants to take them or not with that we help the environment.

At only 155Rand (£7.75) so much cheaper than the London Eye, you get to go round 4 times. We were lucky as when we got there it was a quiet day and no queue so the 3 of us had a pod to ourselves. Super views of the waterfront, Cape Town and of course Table Mountain. Recommended

It provides great views over the area. However it is quite expensive and you go around 4 times or so which after a while does feel less enjoyable and ready to get off. In the wind if does blow a bit but looks worse from the ground. If you have time is worth doing but wouldn’t rush to do it and better in a larger group as less likely to have to share a pod

Impressive observation wheel, which gives wonderful views of Cape Town, the Waterfront and the mountains. Good value for money, especially compared to our equivalent, the London Eye. The wind can be an issue, but I was lucky in going on a blisteringly hot calm day.
