You simply cannot visit Cape Town without going up the Cableway.
The new Cable Car is awesome and the views going up is spectacular. Lots of walks on top too. Very Special!.

“Get in car either first or last”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Excellent panoramic view as cable cars have revolving floors. Wonderful views if you are near windows not so good if lost in the scrum in the middle. Good service although by its very nature there is usually a queue. Often closed because of the weather - especially the wind. If your time in Cape Town is short take first opportunity to go up. Many people miss their chance and go home disappointed.

“Super views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Wonderful experience in revolving cable car - tip get in last then this ensures a place by the window as you can get lost in the scrum. Once up there the views are fantastic. Take the first opportunity to go up as cable car often closed because of the weather

“Cableway ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

We enjoyed the short ride, revolving floor, and free guided tour at the top. Limited viewing from inside the car due to crowds. Limited parking.
