The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway has been carrying people to the summit of Table Mountain, a massive 3566 feet (1,087 meters) high since 1929. While the journey used to take hours on foot, today you can use the cablecar to reach the top in just five minutes. At the top, you can take a free guided tour! It’s no wonder the cableway is one of Cape Town’s most popular attractions. You can compare tickets online and book in advance to make sure your visit is as smooth as possible.
