“One of Cape Town's must-do attractions”
Reviewed 11 January 2017

Just do it. The views are spectacular! The car rotates a full circle, so no matter where you stand, you get all the views from the city to the cliff face.

Now for practical stuff:
Book online. Seriously, the queue we were in was maybe 1/10th the length of the queue for people buying tickets on the day. You then just show the barcodes for your tickets on your phone, which are scanned for your entry.

Then drive up or get a taxi from one of the reputable companies to drop you off - you'll probably want to ring one to be collected as it is a bit of a walk back to the city. If you drive, you can drive right up to the bottom cable car house and drop a friend to take a place in line while they turn at the roundabout and go back down to find a roadside park - if you get to the front, you can sit there letting others pass until the driver comes back.

“Best Way to Get to the Top”
Reviewed 10 January 2017

This was a great, comfortable way to get to the scenic top of Table Mountain. Check Table Mountain.com before you go for an estimate of line wait times, so you don't end up waiting longer than necessary.

“Super expensive ”
Reviewed 10 January 2017 via mobile

We had no other choice than to go and there. But the food was not that bad. They had a lot to choose from and it tasted fine. The service was ok and of course the view was something else :)

Should by online the ticket and prepare yourself to long lines without aircon. Once to the top - perfect scenery and fab experience.
