    Purchasing cable car tickets online and in advance for Table Mountain would have saved a few hours.

    An excellent trip in terms of variety and the things packed in. I've done a number of trips and one of the best as you didn't feel like you were just in one country. A few tweaks to it - itinerary and accommodation and it would be amazing!
