The trip lastet approx. 25 minutes. I only would fly again on the morning as early as pssobile when the fantastic light is still there. The Crew was professional, the tranfer from and... More

I took the 50 minute tour with Cape Town Helicopters and it was simply fantastic! What views! A very professional operator and superb pilot inspired great confidence and I can't recommend highly enough. Take the longest flight you can afford, you won't regret it. Prices are very reasonable for tourists as the ZAR is weak at the moment which makes... More

Our pilot was great. The view was amazing. What more could we ask for? I would love to buy some professional prints because ours didn't turn out as wonderful as I would have hoped. Any suggestions on where I could order them online? Thank you!

2nd time with Cape Town Helicopters and it just gets better and better. Well Worth it, especially if you only have a short time to see a fair amount of the country. From Ocean to Ocean and all the beautiful countryside in between. Other guests rather nervous as had never been in a chopper before. They felt completely safe and... More

During a recent visit to Cape Town, We decided to take a trip in a Helicopter in order to secure some decent photographs showing the the overall image of this iconic city. Our pilot was Annelle and she did everything possible to provide us with a lifetime memory experience. Ok - it was a bit pricy but at the end... More

We went expecting a flight like any other. But were greeted by a warm and friendly receptionist. Followed by helpful and kind staff who filled forms in and showed the safety video. We were then escorted to our heli by a enthusiastic and professional man. The pilot was really calming and professional and informative. We loved this place. Good prices.... More

I booked a Cape Winelands and Wine Helicopter Tour with Cape Town Helicopters for my wife's birthday on 3/1/14 through Viator many months prior to her birthday. We were to have lunch at Waterkloof restaurant. We confirmed the arrangements the day before and were told to come half an hour earlier than indicated on the confirmation voucher. On the day... More

Dear Sir, We understand your disappointment, especially as this was a gift to your wife. On the morning of the flight the restaurant informed us of high winds making it unsafe to land the helicopter in the mountainous area where they are situated. Safety comes first in aviation and I trust you will respect our cautious approach. Our company offered... More
