What an amazing experience, even as a born and bred Capetonian, I would recommend taking a ride on the Cape Wheel. You get to see Cape Town from a completely different view point and it is truely magical.

This is definitely a good way to see the area surrounding the waterfront, some great views of the harbour and even table mountain.

Our ride up to the Cape Wheel was definitely our money's worth. We could see the entire harbor including a gorgeous view of the mountain and the stadium. Definitely something to include in an itinerary.

Beautiful views can be seen from the top of the view. Personally I think the wheel is a bit expensive for the experience. I really appreciated that the wheel was open till late, which makes it an activity that can be done in the evening.

Beautiful views of Table Mountain, the bay and the waterfront. Air conditioned pods make for a comfortable ride.

We happened to be visiting the waterfront on a special night where the wheel had 1/2 price tickets. Great value & a most enjoyable ride with great views. Staff friendly.
