      This helicopter ride was interesting and fun. But I did have problems with this company. I booked this tour a week or more beforehand. On the day of the tour they called me to try to change the time to late in the afternoon when the traffic to and fro would be terrible and the views on the ride not nearly as good. When I told them NO they then said that they were going to have to charge me double the price (that had already been agreed upon and paid) to go on the ride. I told them absolutely NOT and then they had to congress before coming back to say they could it for the regular price but at a slightly different time. That was okay. The trip itself was interesting and fun as mentioned. But the advertisement shows large state of the art helicopters. In reality the helicopter was a tiny old helicopter that was so cramped that I literally almost had a panic attack. But once I settled in I did enjoy it and the pilot was nice. I likely would not use this company again for such as there are several in Cape Town that do this kind of thing and will likely not try to pull a bait and switch on you.

      Hi; Thank you for bringing this under our attention and allow me to shed some light on the procedure. All our flights are sharing flights and where there are no sharing flight available we contact our guests to move the flight to another time/day when its convenient for both parties or we offer the option for an exclusive flight where you will fly alone in the helicopter with the pilot but at an additional cost. We are happy that once you settled in you enjoyed the flight. Regarding the helicopter types, we offer services in various different state of the art helicopter including the Robinson R44 (Pilot + 3 guests). We do apologies that our services was not what you expected and would welcome you back for another great experience that so many of our guests enjoy and write reviews on. Best Regards Cape Town Helicopters Management

      Excellent experience delivering what it says on the tin. Got collected from the ticket stand on the Waterfront and taken by golf cart to the helipad, checked-in for the flight and then off for a memorable scenic flight over looking Table Mountain and down the coastline with a great pilot who pointed out landmarks along the route. Well worth the money imo.

      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!!!!

      The tour with the helicopter was a true experience that everyone visiting Cape Town should do!! Wow! My pilot was a very skilled one named Matt, and he is already a pilot for 9 years. Great to see al the landmarks, and also get explanatory talks with them from my pilot. The flight took about 25 minutes, and was very enjoyable and calm. The ground staff was also very helpful with taking pictures of me with the aircraft and guiding me to and from the aircraft before and after the flight!

      I totally recommend this for everyone! Flights are organised well, the views are fantastic. Pilots also tell you where is what and comment on what we see.

      People working in the company is a very nice bunch, super friendly and helpful. The place is easy to access. The flights are accessible in Cape Town in comparison to other cities, and there is loads to see.

      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.
