this helped a lot as we were on a whirlwind weekend trip from joburg and short on time, and there was no way we could have climbed all the way up and down. would prefer the windows/glass to be more pristine, for a clearer view. also, they shouldn't pack in too many people so that one can walk around. The tickets are pretty expensive at 200 rands!

The cable ride takes about 4 minutes and for me who would be a little nervous of heights this was very smooth ride. The floor rotates 360 degrees so every one in the car get to see the spectacular views.

The Aerial Cableway is so easy! The only issue, and it is an issue, is that it is closed on days with high winds. I have been to Cape Town a few times now and more than half the time I was there, the cable car was not running (the high winds cause safety issues). SO, make sure to see Table Mountain when you can...so you are not caught traveling half was around the world (for Americans), and not being able to see this wonder of nature. Especially in the summer (their Summer, Jan-Mar), the winds are an issue.

I loved it! Going up while this thing spins slowly allowing you a 360 degrees view of the whole site, so you can easily take pictures of every angle of this climb up to the top, will never forget it

Go to Cape Town and miss the visit of Table Mountain by the Aerial Cableway is unthinkable. The magnificence and omnipresence of the mountain is just fully understandable if you go up there. A must visit in Cape Town.
