“Great views, nice walks at the top”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

We were lucky to have a clear day to take this trip. The view is breathtaking, and the combination of the rotating floor and one or two of the windows removed gave good opportunities for great photos. Once at the top there are charming walks amongst the boulders and wild flowers, to different and dramatic views on every side. This is a must-do in Cape Town - such a great view of the city laid out before you on every side.

Then for a contrast, from somewhere below, watch the clouds pour over the mountain in the afternoon.

“It's high up!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Great, quite a queue to get on but worth it. Spinning centre so you all get a good view but it is high so if you don't like that, maybe not your idea of a great day out.

Deserving to be one of the seven natural wonders of the world! Once you are at the the top of the mountain, you will be mesmerized by the breathtaking view. Its a photographers haven. You will see the whole view of Cape town and the surrounding mountains and clouds.

“spectacular view”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We were lucky it wasn't crowdy so we could go on straight away. Rotating platform in the cable car, good picture opportunities as 1 of the plexis was taken out.
