Great views, great experience! Get there early to avoid queues - check if open first, can get windy then they stop running.

My wife and I took the red bus round the city and jumped off at the Table mountain stop for a trip up the cableway. At the entrance staff take a photo that is later super-imposed onto a view of Table mountain that you can collect for a reasonable fee on the way out.
We had great weather and therefore great views on the way up and down - the revolving floorway meant that visitors did not have to jostle for position.

You must take the Cable car to the top of Table mountain (or you can climb it). The view is wonderful! There was a small queue but the line goes fast. The floor of the car turns so if you can get a window view you will be able to see 180 degrees. The Red line of the Hop on - Hop off bus stops at the Cable car.

Amazing views when clear. The best time is in the morning. To our surprise it was cold when we got to the top.

Even to the very nervous about heights (me) - this revolving cable car ride was quick and made one feel safe. The view going up and down is worth it -- take a camera!
