Well organised, friendly staff....wonderful experience.
Floor of car revolves during trip so everyone gets to see the views.
Once at the top the scenery is out of this world! Different stunning views at every turn!
It really was so beautiful and breathtaking.
Some of the most amazing sights you will ever see and photograph!
No visit to S.A. complete without doing this!
Buy tickets from website to avoid queues.

“Iconic mountain, iconic views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Table mountain is a must do in Cape town, and the cableway offers a quick and efficient way of reaching the top for those unable to tackle the many hiking routes to the top. Weekends and public holidays you will probably have a bit of wait to get a ticket, but stick it out , there are usually plenty of vendors touting cool drinks and ice creams. For those without a head for heights this is a good way to go as you can stand in the middle of the cable car, which rotates affording great views of the city bowl, the surburbs below Signal Hill and the harbour. Its a whole lot quicker than walking

“bleh...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

It's really great for saving you the chore of walking up/down the mountain. Otherwise, no big thrills wrt the cable car itself. The real treat is being at the top of the nountain itself.

I always feel that the cableway is overpriced - especially the photos they offer you as you leave!

Table mountain is the must-do. The cableway is pretty lack-lustre according to me.

“Table Mountain Cable Car”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

I found the operators of this cable car company professional in their operations and their staff were friendly and polite. Just a pity the Restaurant at the Top of the mountain is such a Disgrace as far as Food and Service is concerned (this may noit be part of the Cable Way Company, however???).

“Top of the world...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

A great family outing, it is very exciting to see the cable car descending from the mountain and to stand in line, knowing that it will be your turn soon! The revolving car adds to the attraction. The top of the mountain is beautiful, there are many areas to explore and the view is spectacular. The kids enjoyed watching the dassies and we saw lovely plants and flowers. Bring sunblock and a coat, the weather can change quickly. Table Mountain is one of the new 7 wonders of the world.
