“Best way to the top”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Best way to the top, buy your tickets ahead and be in the first group of the day. the Cableway does a 360 turn on the way to the top. If you are afraid of heights stand in the middle as the car does not turn there.

“Great ride”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

There were long queues but they moved really quickly. The cable car revolved 360 degrees, so you had a good view all round - smooth and fast ride.

“Fun trip up the cableway”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Worth a trip to the top on the cableway, even though it's a bit pricey. It was cloudy at the top when I went, so didn't really have a view, but still enjoyed it. It was actually closed the first day I was in Cape Town due to weather, so check the web site before you go. If you go on a clear day, there are also some trails you can take on the top. The hop-on hop-off bus stops at the bottom of the cableway, and also provides a scenic trip along the winding roads that lead up to it.

“Cable car at Table mountain”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This is still a wonder of the world. A must see to everyone that visits Cape Town. This experience cannot be described it must be experienced and seen for yourself. From the top of the mountain you can see the wonders of Gods creation.

“Revolves”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I had never been on a revolving cable car. It gave everyone a chance to take pictures and get a lovely view of Capetown. We had tried to go earlier in the week but there wasn't enough visability. How nice of them to let us know and not waste our time!
