“GHreat views and a great way to get to the top of The Mountain”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We booked tickets online in advance to avoid the queues but we were able to walk right through to the cable car as we went up in the morning.

The car rotates through 360 degrees so there is no need to rush to a window.

The ride is fast and smooth.

“spectaculair!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Of course, you can hike up the mountain (as my husband did) and arrive at the top of the mountain completely wet of sweat or you can take a relaxed trip with the cableway. On the way up the cabin turns 360 degrees. The views are stunning and being so close to wall of the mountain is a very spectaculair experience. On top of the mountain are many paths to walk as well as a lot of view points.
Going down the cableway went at full speed: within a couple of minutes we were down again.

“Very fun way to get up and down the mountain!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Enjoyed a beautiful, sunny afternoon on Table Mountain and were so happy to take the cableway to get up and down! Parking is right thee, along with an organized flow for tourists. The floor of the cable car spins as you're ascending and descending so everyone can take in all of the views of the city and Table Mountain during the short ride up and down. Very nice!

“No fear, this is a must do”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

My wife was unsure about taking the ride as she is a little unsure of any cable ride however when she actually got in the gondola all fears went away. Very smooth ride up & down, great views and the very safe construction allayed her fears. It's only a short ride to some of the most spectacular scenery in the world
