I rarely rate things on tripadvisor but for Herman and his crew it was no problem to go the extra mile. We had the hopper flight booked for a group of thirty people, but the weather was dreadful. Herman adviced (and convinced us of) a different time slot on a different day to get the best possible experience. Then he... More

We're so lucky to have had such a wonderful experience. Amazing city, friendly and welcoming staff and wonderful safe helicopters. What a surreal and special way to see the mother city. Don't go anywhere else. These guys are the real deal

Before one so much as sets foot onto the helicopter, you are filled with excitement and nerves settle in. Its a feeling unlike fear. The entire crew makes one feel at ease from the minute you set foot on the premises. It helps with the onslaught of nerves, especially for a first time flyer. I have never been in the... More

I read the bad reviews for Cape Town Helicopters and was amazed that the complaints was from people that didn't realise that the rules and regulations was there for their safety. Fat people that was upset because they had to pay extra for a bigger helicopter(my advise: eat less!!) and people that wasn't happy when the weather didn't play along... More

We arrived earlier than our booking. Didn't have to pay the 'exclusive' fee to reserve the helicopter for ourselves as there was nobody there. After signing the waiver we were airborne within about 10 minutes. We took The Hopper, the shortest of the options. To be honest, it would have been great to go farther, but I only needed the...

My partner and I were collected by the driver Adam on the morning of our flight. We cannot praise Adam highly enough- he was one of the friendliest people we met in South Africa. Very chatty and had us both laughing. He also went out of his way to leave us back to a market we wanted to go to... More

The most amazing experience, with the greatest staff, both in the air and on the ground! Seeing the Mother City from the air really is something that everyone should do at least once, and I highly recommend you do it with Cape Town Helicopters!

What an amazing experience! The staff were really friendly and accommodating. Our pilot was great and really knowledgable too. Quick and easy flight to Durbanville Hills Wine Estate for a delicious lunch and back again. Would definitely recommend Cape Town Helicopters to anyone looking for a day out!

Thanks for dropping by to give us a five star rating. You chose a great destination to wine and dine. We try to ensure that the flight is the cherry on top. Seeing the Cape's Winelands, is better when you have a bird's eye view. I am sure you will agree. More
