“Incredible views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Wow ! The views from the top of table mountain are amazing. We were advised by a local taxi driver to visit before 9 as after this time the tour buses start arriving and the queue can be a couple of hours, we arrive just before 9 and only had half hour wait. The cars are really smooth - although it did take me a bit of time to get used to the rotating floor, which allows everyone a great photo opportunity.

Put this attraction on you must do list for all first time visitors to Cape Town.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

The day we went it was extremely busy and altho we already had our tickets we had to wait in one queue for 1hr then in a second queue to get on the cable car for afurther 40 mins.,it seemed somewhat disorganised.
Once on cablecar it was really good,avery enjoyable ride up the face of the mountain.

“Great Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

When getting into the Cablecar stand on the outside edge, the floor rotates 360 degrees as it travels to the top of the mountain. Look out for rock climbers. The views are breathtaking.

I love that it turns slowly allowing everybody a chance to get the best views at some point during the ride up and down.

“great, but get there early”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

amazing views and very much worth it, but get your tickets online beforehand and get there early - first trip up is around 8am i think. we got there around 10am and the line was forever long. about a 2-3 hour wait, which i guess isn't a killer, but not exactly how you want to spend 2-3 hours on a vacation!
