“Expected it to be good but until you get there ......”
Reviewed 10 January 2017 via mobile

We arrived from London to our hotel around 9 am and they advised us to go more or less straight away as the weather forecast showed high wind for the next few days. Thank goodness we did. Bit of a queue but it was top season and Sunday. We probably waited 45 mins but it moved well and was well organised.

It was a stunning day. Perfect views and no wind. My expectation was that it would be good but until you get there you really can't appreciate how spectacular it is

Simply cannot be missed but make sure you take the first opportunity to do it. We were in Cape Town for 3 days and if we hotel had not pushed us to do it we would have missed it due to high winds.

“View from the top”
Reviewed 10 January 2017 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! ”
Reviewed 10 January 2017 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.
