An excellent way to travel around Cape Town and see the sights. There were plenty of buses which you can join anywhere around the 2 routes. I never had to wait long and the stops were in really interesting places. The staff were really helpful. The walking tour was also excellent that comes with the ticket. It is a really cheap way to sight see and as a solo traveller I felt completely safe.

We got a taxi from our hotel to the cableway entrance as were in Newlands and the bus route journey was out of reach. You have to wait in a queue which lasted about 30 minutes - the cable ride takes about 5 minutes to get to the top of the mountain - they do have free guides but at specific times. We explored the top of the Table Mountain by walking as far as we could go. You can see the Lions head (mountain/hill) clearly. We were lucky it was not a cloudy day and got to see beautiful views from the top. Wear comfortable shoes.

A really good way to see Cape Town as a beginner. Bus is easy to use and the routes well laid out. Set of earphones allow you to listen to a commentary highlighting the featuees and landmarks as you pass them. Cable car is also a wonderful experience. I arrived there midday which was maybe a mistake given the fact there was a long queue, but it moved quickly enough and there is plenty of shade, seats etc. On the cable car itself, dont rush for the front of the carriage for the views, the floor rotates through 360 degrees so everyone gets the chance. Once at the top there are plenty of marked walks of varying lengths and the views are to die for. Cafe etc at the top for a drink and a chance to relax and enjoy! When checking the weather for your trip though, make sure the winds dont pick up while youre planning to be up at the top, if they do become strong and the cable car stops you will have a hike to get back down!
