What a great, organized way to see Table mountain. My friends say it's a very very tough climb up, so treat yourself on holiday and take the cable car!

Easy fast payment online, love the time window to redeem in case it's closed for wind or cloudy, and love the rotating floors in the candle car, to ensure everyone has a fair chance to see all views during the ride.

Tips: Buy online to skip a queue. Dress warmly, it is cold - and the main reason why people leave earlier than they want to. Wear comfy shoes, there are rocks. Pay attention to the open and close times. Allow enough time to soak all aspects in. Cafe and shop on top.

This Aerial Cableway provides a great view. It's a fun ride up the mountain. I'm afraid of heights, but I recommend the ride. It was fantastic ride!

Suffice it to say, one most go to the top of Table Mountain. Catching a clear day or even clouds free of the summit day in winter is worth the trip. Staggering views of the city and Cape.

Our only gripe was the lack of interpretation/instruction once you cleared the tram. There are signs and a downloadable app but both lacked. It would have been nice to have guided walks.

The trams floor spins a complete 360 degrees while in motion. So by boarding last, you’ll do a complete loop and end up facing the exit door again.

Thank you for your review.

We do offer free guided walking tours which depart on the hour from the Twelves Apostles Terrace. These tours are announced in our cabin master's speech and on our website.

Thanks

This is one of the spectacular places and sights of the world--going up on the cable car and enjoying the beauty of the scenery and ocean all around. We have been able to do this several times over the years and it is still a thrill. I don't like heights and being suspended above the ground, but felt quite secure in the cable car, which rotates on its trips up and down. The weather shuts the cableway down at times, but on a sunny day it is magic. One suggestion--get there as early as possible to avoid some of the crowd, with attendant loudmouths, smoking, cellphones, etc. The top of Table Mountain can be serene and almost mystical if you can separate yourself.

This was a stop on our tour. I opted to line up for the Funicular. The line was short but is was slow. All that said it probably took only 10 minutes to get my ticket. Most of the group walked up and back. The Funicular was clean and quick once on board. We were lucky to have magnificent views with the clouds rolling in at the end. I'm glad we had this stop, it is worth doing.
