Booked the flight in advance and opted to pay the extra so we got private use of the helicopter, and paid for the video package. It was our first time in a helicopter and although the pilot kept apologising for a little movement in the wind, we never actually noticed it. The views you get of Cape Town centre and along the coast are just amazing, and we saw whales, we took lots of pictures and our video package shows views both from the helicopter and inside to pick our facial reactions, plus it includes all the discussions with the pilot, well worth paying the small extra amount.

For whatever reason I’ve always had a fear of flying in a helicopter - but not planes. My wife and I (on our honeymoon) decided to end our trip to Cape Town with a helicopter tour. My fears were quickly put at ease. It was an amazing way to see the city and surrounding areas one last time, and truly appreciate the lovely scenery from a different perspective. Would definitely recommend.

This was excitingly the best helicopter tour myself and family has been on in ages. Greetings at the entrance was professional and welcoming not to mention a fantastic tour ahead. We've traveled the world and been on about 8 different helicopter tours previously. This was an absolute and a truly memoizable experience. The views from the top is indescribable beautiful and worth every penny.

The staff is amazing.

Despite our little incident with City Pass, the staff was kind and understanding.

I would recommend to anyone who wishes to overcome heights phobia as my friend was. He really enjoyed it.

We the helicopter as it was my 1st time inside it and the beautiful city. We also spotted some whales when we were in the sky and it was beautiful.

Don’t look at the price, look at the experience. It’s priceless!!!!

A breath-taking flight overlooking Cape Town and the Atlantic Ocean. I was accommodated at the last moment, as a walk-in client, where other operators were unable to assist. A professional service with a knowledgeable pilot, Ryan.

This is my second time doing this trip of experience in Cape Town and unfortunately the other company had a much better service/value for money.

Whilst the pilot was great, fun and obviously flew very well even through some bumpy wind, the only negatives were that you do not get to choose where you sit and photo opportunities on the ground were very limited.

At the high price you pay for the experience, you’d expect to at least choose your seat. Unfortunately there are only 4 passenger seats, 1 in front and 3 in the back. My partner and I got put in the back and myself in the middle with no chance to take decent photos as there’s very limited space inside.

We didn’t have options to take a photo with the pilot or near the helicopter. It was a very “quick in and quick out” experience however should you want to pay more for their photo package they will be more than happy to assist you. There is a small outside seating area however it is so far from the helicopter, it hardly shows in photos. Whilst we appreciate there are security and safety reasons for it being far away, when the engine is off and there are visibly no other flights happening you should be able to take photos. I would also expect for the price we paid to at least get a tour of the hangar or even a little more info on the company other than the pilot asking for a review at the end of the flight

Overall an ok experience but only given 3 out of 5 as we felt at this price you pay should allow people to book an allocated seat and better photo opportunities as other companies on that strip allow.

I had booked the Atlantic tour for me and my boyfriend, as he had never flown on a helicopter and Cape Town was the best place for a first time. We were worried about visibility but the whole staff was super friendly and professional and we really enjoyed the trip. Our pilot, Werner, was telling us about the highlights and the flight was veery smooth.

Hi ViajarLoCuraTodo, Thank you for the five star rating. We are pleased that you and your boyfriend enjoyed every minute of the flight. We try our utmost to make the flight a memorable experience, but must consider safety precautions so that every flight is a safe one. Cape Town weather tends to be unpredictable, but we always have a plan in case the weather doesn't clear. You chose the ideal day and time to fly and we are glad that you got to experience it with us.We are glad that Werner as your pilot made this experience a great memorable one for you. Safety, fun and comfort are top priorities. When our passengers leave mesmerized, with smiles on their faces, we’ve done our jobs. Happy safe travels

If you just want to take a nice helicopter ride this is for you. Good price.

It's not a helicopter experience however: You get pickup by a golfcart from their sales booth at the V&A waterfront to the office (good: no need to wait for other passengers), you register and wait (bad: no smile, info or welcome drink while you wait). You get a safety brief on a old-school TV and get on the helicopter (not the best view, but friendly pilot). Back on the helipad, you ask for someone to take your photo, because that (or a smile) is not offered. Then you get on the golfcart. They drop you off at the waterfront. Again, no smiles.
