Accept to wait quite long (1h) it was a great experience to take the cable care to the table mountain. A good hint: booking online it makes you faster! And surprise, the cable car is turning, so that everybody can have a very good view to all sites!

A bit of a queue but expected. Had to stand out in the sun for a while but it was all worth it for the result. Fabulous views from the cableway itself and from the top of the mountain. Don't miss it but book before you go. Afternoon is best if the weather is clear as the cableway often closes... More

Having quickly dispensed with the idea of the 2+ hour walk up to Table Mountain we opted for the 2+ minute Cable Car ride which itself was spectacular and only outdone by the amazing views from the top If you get the opportunity to do it; don't hesitate - you won't regret it! I am sure there would be more... More

The views from the top, wow!! And the cableway ride is worth it. You can see 360 degrees while going up. It is amazing.

I think this would have been a great ride up the mountain if the clouds weren't so dense. We had absolutely no view. I went to the restaurant up top and we ordered pizza. The pizza tasted like a grilled cheese sandwich that had too much cheese on it. Wish I could've been there when the clouds weren't so dense

Breathtaking going up the cable car and getting to the top seeing the views. The walkways are very user friendly as I was on a crutch and so awesome that the staff assisted you and directed you to the correct toilets to use. Fantastic experience indeed.
