It was very busy, but the wait wasn't too long. The cable cart was a bit full, but each one still got a good view of the mountain and surroundings. I enjoyed the food at the restaurant as well. Well organized and friendly staff.

The iconic mountain is definitely a must see when in Cape Town.

I have been up the cable car a few times, the views from the top are out of this world.
Try go on a clear day, as sometimes a layer of clouds cover the top of the mountain, and you will not be able to see the view.
If you are a hiker, try hiking up. There are numerous paths, but the most straightforward path is Platteklip Gorge which is straight up the face of the mountain. You should be able to hike up within 2 - 3 hours (Leisure pace), and take the cable car down. Not for the faint hearted :)

Group tours have their perks - such as local guide getting you to Table Mountain first thing in the morning to ensure the group can stand in line as little as possible and quickly head up the aerial cableway. Note to fellow travellers - don't panic for position - the cableway rotates 360 degrees so there is no such thing as a bad view. Our guide Chris provided us with a very informative tour on one of the shorter trails - where we were provided with magnificent views, great vantage points for photography and spotting the ubiquitous Rock Hyrax, locally known as the Dassie. Table Mountain became our way of telling where were were in the city and surrounding area. Wish we had time to do a sunrise or sunset hike.

Booked ahead to avoid queues and we were very lucky with the weather which was superb. The cable car rotates so that everyone gets a great view as you progress up to the top station. Easy access and well worth doing.
