“Wonderful views, easily accessible”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Just a short drive from central Cape Town and you can see a panorama view of the bay without worrying about the cloud or waiting in line for a cable car. Worth stopping along the road for different perspectives as well as going to the far end.

“spectacular”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

Beautiful views from the top. We met the artist, Ishmael, and heard his story of letters he wrote to Bothe during the apartheid years. Then we had time to watch the loading of the cannon for the noon gun. Thanks DC Tours

“What a View”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Had a great experience at Signal Hill the day was clear and you could see for miles over beautiful Cape Town and while standing doing the admiring and taking photos the lunch time Gun went off what a noise but so pleased we were there to hear it. On the way down took photos of a beautiful tree out in flower reminding me of New Zealands Pohutakawa which is always out at Christmas in the North Island

“Ohhh what a sunset!”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Friday evening, nice wine, a blanket....jsut the perfect time to enjoy a wonderful sundet.
OK, the Signal Hill becomes more and more popular to ALL tourist. Thus it's getting crowded. You need to like buses full of tourists.

“A nice climb to watch the sunset”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

i have not climbed the rock for a while (reviews only go back so far) it is a lovely climb with chains to assist the last part. When you reach the top you are rewarded with breathtaking views. I suggest to walk in a group for safety.
