We had a private flight on small helicopter and it was amazing. Such an incredible way to view one of the most amazing cities we have ever visited. Our pilot was calm and reassuring and explained all details of the flight as well as the surrounding vistas. The 30 minute flight felt long enough as we flew along the coast... More

Unfortunately the weather was not too good and we had prebooked this flight so I would recommend rescheduling if it is cloudy or rainy as it spoilt the views. One trip worth doing once in a lifetime in Cape Town!!!

Cape Town Helicopters were brilliant! I booked an exclusive flight for my girlfriend and I on Cape Town Helicopters, we did the Peninsula Tour and then did the VIP Wineland experience at Waterkloof Wine farm. The views from the helicopter of the peninsula were stunning. We landed at Waterkloof and had a great table for 2 in the wine tasting... More

We booked this trip through our hotel and we are very glad we did. The trip was brilliant. My husband went so far as to say that it was the highlight of his holiday. We were collected from our hotel and taken to the helipad where we were provided with a safety briefing. We chose the Two Oceans trip which... More

Booked at the Waterside. Being on my own was fortunate to find 2 others to go on the 15 minute flight for 880 rand [£50]. The views are tremendous and it was a very clear day. Well worth the cost and recommended as a must do in Cape Town.

This was No 1 on my bucket list and didn't disappoint. The sky was clear and blue and the 1 hour trip in a Bell 206 Jetranger was fantastic. We saw everything - a clear uninterrupted view of Table Mountain from all angles, Cape Point, Llandudno, Scarborough, Haut Bay, Simon's Town etc. It was all over far too soon so... More
