Excellent tour but very difficult with visit to Table Mountain as cable cars (although very quick) have such long queues so we had to wait a long time for last person to return to car. Guide was very good and well worth taking this tour.

We booked the 1.30pm tour. The return cable car tickets aren’t included so on top of the $55 AUD each we had to pay an additional $30 AUD each. We had to cut half the tour out due to long cues at Table Mountain and being on a time restraint so our sightseeing was very brief &

Good Day, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. Table Mountain is a popular attraction that will always carry long queues. The true value of the tour comes in the form of the tour guide. A local Capetonian, that can share the history of the city and snippets of everyday life that one will otherwise not discover. Thank you for your complimentary feedback of the guide – we will be sure to share it.
