The company encourages buying tickets in advance yet if the cable car is not running it is impossible to get a refund. I have waited over four weeks, no satisfactory answers, they insist on doing the refund via PayPal yet don’t appear to understand how...More

Obviously a must when visiting Capetown. Best advice is to pre book, we kept checking with our concierge who advised when the queues were down to 15 mins, we hopped n a taxi and arrived around 13.30 - seemingly a good time to go. We...More

We bought our tickets online, waited in mostly shaded lines which moved fairly fast, enjoyed the trip up, loved the hike at the top, amazing views and fresh air and scenery. The food was very expensive (recommend bringing what you want with you) although having...More

The views are incredible and the cable car actually rotates so even if you get in and feel like you don't have a good view it will start turning as you go. The views at the top are amazing. Make sure to bring your camera....More

Pick your time for this, and/or get your tickets in advance to avoid long queues. When it’s windy and in poor weather conditions it is closed (which is a high percentage of days) so as soon as you get a good day, put it on...More

We pre booked tickets online which means no queuing to buy when you arrive. Drive all the way up and turned on the roundabout outside so we then found a parking spot nearer to the cable car as opposed to a few hundred meters away....More

Hi There.The cable car does not swing but it does rotate very slowly allowing eveyone onboard to get the great views. The cable car does not operate in high winds. This is a MUST DO!!!
