This was a special treat for hubby's birthday, we ( family of 4) joined him in a lifetime experience of viewing the sites in and around the two oceans from a birds eye view of a Bell helicopter. Wow what an awesome experience. The day was perfect, the view stupendous, our pilot could not be faulted and the ground staff... More

Just great, do the full Cape Point trip and enjoy the part where the chopper goes near the water at full speed, awesome! Loved this trip, you get a different perspective of one of the finest views in the world, pricey but comparable to other helicopter trips I've done in the US Thanks guys, great experience

We just did the small "hopper" tour which was Iike 13-15 minutes in the air. We went down the coast to the 12 apostels did a turn and had a quick look over Cape Town's city bowl. I could have spent the whole day in that helicopter. It was so awesome. The 15 minutes are not that long but they... More

There are quite a few helicopter companies operating in Cape Town, and coming from Australia, we emailed them all with our queries. Hands-down, Sport Helicopters came back to us the quickest and answering all our questions, they also happened to be cheaper than other operators. Arriving 45 minutes early, as we were not sure where to go, they kindly accommodated... More
