“Quick ride down”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Rotates on the way down so you don't feel one spot is better than the next. It took maybe 3 minutes at most to get down there so it's a little silly and the view is not as great as when you are at the top of the mountain. I would only take this for convenience, not as an attraction.

“Experience that shouldn't be missed”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

On a clear day, the view that you have from the top, of the city below and the paoramic view of the ocean is breath taking. If you happen to be in Capetown, this is a must have experience. Then, you must be very lucky too, as on a very windy day, the table mountain is closed for visitors

“Unless you plan to walk! It is the best way to get to TT”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Unless you plan to walk! It is the best way to get to TT. Give it a go and be prepared for some great views. They do pack you in however!

“Must see in Cape Town”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

The moment there is nice weather you have to go quickly because you never know when it will be fogged in. Make it the first to do on your itinerary upon arrival. Give yourself at least three hours if you really want to hike around. Nice café for grub ect. You can purchase your tickets online to save yourself from having to wait in line for a ticket. Best view I have seen in a long time.

“What a view! What a time”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

I was not prepared for this experience as I had no idea what I was going in just that I was going to Table Mountain. It was funny as people started to take photos while in the cable car but they were too late as you had to be quick to click as the car revolved so we saw heaps.
