Wind and low cloud had thwarted us going up Table Mountain on the two previous days. Perhaps that's also why the queues were so long! Waited 2 hours to go up. Car was pretty crammed so limited viewing. View from the top was sensational. Well...More

Thank you for your review. We do experience a high volume of visitors, following days that we have been closed due to bad weather. We suggest pre-booking tickets online and visiting us in the afternoons when it is less busy.

I had a great time on the cable cars and the view was stunning, my only feedback is that it was quite expensive, but I paid it, so perhaps I am just getting tighter in my old age.
