Incredible views of the city and the area itself has lots of spaces to walk around that are away from the main cable area once you get to the top.

First of all, the view is stunning! This is a mandatory place to visit. It was really simple to buy the tickets at the website of table mountain and you don't need to print. The aerial cableway feels really safe and the trip is confortable. All of this combined with the stunning views at the one of the 7 wonders of nature made this place a mandatory stop.

Well organised, could be busy, we only waited 20 mins to obtain tickets. We did not purchase beforehand.

The cableway was very well organised. Staff polite and helpful.

We arrived at 8:00 am for the opening at 8:30 which was a good thing because a couple of big bus tours came in right behind us. When you get on the tram, make your way to any window - the car rotates 360 degrees as you ascend so you will see everything. Once at the top walk along the path and you will get one spectacular view after another. Mornings in September are chilly so a jacket/sweat shirt was a must. I would allow an hour to two hours total... but it will be crowd dependent.

I'm pretty bad with heights so this was something I needed to do rather than wanted to do but I'm glad I did.

The views from the rotating cable car, and at the top, are fabulous provided the clouds aren't around. If you want to do this, check the weather forecast.
The Hop-on, hop-off bus red line takes you to the cable car entrance.
The cafe at the top is good.

It was a nice ride up, with a special treat the moving floor in the cablecar, so everyone had a 360 degree view. On the top it was very cold and windy, so bring a sweater or jacket. Not cheap, but worth the money.

Let's be honest, the view from absolutely anywhere in the city is breath taking? The cable car trip made it doubly so! Absolutely stunning!

It is well worth making the effort to use the Cableway to get to the top of Table Mountain.
Utilising a rotating floored gondola, the journey takes about three minutes and once at the top the views are inspiring.
Despite the amount of people who go up in the cableway once you are up there are so many places you can find the peace and quiet and have time to think and reflect.
Obviously choose a day when there is none or little cloud cover because obviously if there is cloud covering the cableway station, I believe they dont run the service.

This was a great two hour excursion. We arrived early in the day to beat afternoon storms and clouds. We stayed on top for an hour and that was plenty of time to read all info and take pictures from all directions. Plan ahead for the weather and dress warmly in off seasons.
