“a comfortable way of getting to the top”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

if you been in the alps for skiing then you should know the feeling of hanging in the air. if you are not fit enough to climb the mountain up by the many paths the cable car is a perfect way of getting to the top. during the off peak season they often offer half prize on trip up after 6pm. but during peak season you have to stand in the line for a long time so be early if you have a chance

“grand tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

its a magnificient cable car. very modern. floor slowly rotates 360 degrees to give the passenger every possible view. A bit costly - as per Indian standards. The more adventurous might want to go up the cable and then walk down- which I might have done myself had I been alone :)

“revolving car”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

Interesting ride up to Table Mountain. The car rotates so you get to see all the area around you. The cars are always full but if you're lucky, you can get a window view.

“Great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

Be there early or late. 9 am seemed to be the peak time. Avoid that and you will find yourself more productive.
