I was prepared to be afraid of the ride to the top, but it wasn't scary as you are packed in with a bunch of people.

Thank you for your review. We'll let you in on a little secret - between 2 and 4pm is actually a quieter time to visit us and get the best views to yourself. Thanks

Cable car very fast, smooth and efficient. Amazing, breathtaking 360 degree views from Table Mountain. Wear flat comfortable shoes for plenty of walking on obviously uneven rocks... saw a woman in high heels! Very good food in the cafe too! Can recommend the Ostrich pie...Mmmm

Hi There.The cable car does not swing but it does rotate very slowly allowing eveyone onboard to get the great views. The cable car does not operate in high winds. This is a MUST DO!!!
