“View from the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Definitely the quickest and least strenuous method to get you to the top of table mountain. You have to be quick to take in all the views as you descend, unfortunately our views were blurred with the fog so just keep an eye on the weather to avoid any obstructions.

“Short but sweet! ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

I hiked up Table Mtn and used the cable car on the way down (bought a ticket at the summit and lines were shorter). Our was short but the views were still breathtaking. It moves slowly so it's managing for people who don't like heights and fast acceleration.

“Much easier than climbing up!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We did not pre-book tickets and only lined up for about 20 minutes before we were able to head up. The day we went, it was an amazing clear day, so I suspect that the rest of Capet Town was also on top of the Mountain, which meant we had to line up for over an hour to descend, but the line moved efficiently and it wasn't really an issue.
