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!

I did a flight with Cape Town Helicopters and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We flew in a Bell helicopter which was very comfortable and spacious. It was only myself, a gentleman from Iran and a lady from Kazakstan who sat in front with our female pilot. We took off from the V&A Waterfront. Cape Town Helicopters offer 4 flight options....

Thank you for dropping by to give us a review. There is nothing quite like a helicopter flight! An epic experience such as this only gets better when our customers are at ease and enjoy the ride. Being up in the air is daunting enough. We try our best to ensure you have a flight worth remembering! More
