“You must do this!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The cablecars are very cleverly designed. Since everyone wants to face outward, the cars are designed so that the floor rotates slowly clockwise and the walls rotate slowly counter clockwise. That way, passengers stand in one spot but get a 360 degree view during the course of the ride to and from the top of the mountain!

“A Must Visit Attraction”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you are in Cape Town and the weather is clear then you must head for the cablecar. The panoramic views are superb and give you a real feel of the surrounding area and the sheer scale of the mountains. We would recommend you book your tickets online in advance to reduce queuing and if you get a clear day of weather then go for it as there could well be several days when it is not open due to the cloud tablecloth over the mountain. Please arm yourself with all your cameras and be prepared for days of editing afterwards given the number of spectacular views available!

“Rotating cableway”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Yes, it rotates, so you get a 360° view of the scenery below you. The cable car staff was great there were no queues (May), and the view was fantastic. Parking your car can be an issue, we went along the road till a helpful guy showed us where to park (tip of course inevitable upon returning). But you can not put a parking lot on such a steep hill!
