The idea - a 3 Bays Trip by helicopter over Cape Town and the table mountain - was great, the whether perfect, the mountain clear. Still I was not able to make a single photo of it. In the 3-seater helicopter I was sitting on the right side behind the pilot. As he flew a round trip anticlockwise the table... More

Dear Karin, Thank you for bringing this to our attention - we are truly sorry that you did not enjoy your experience with NAC Helicopters Cape Town. The Three Bays Tour flies in an anti clockwise position around Table Mountain, and the pilots fly a set route around the mountain. The timings are never guaranteed for the scenic flights, as...

My wife and daughters took what might be called the hopper trip from the waterfront. As far as they were concerned it was billed as a twenty minute trip and then when they checked the blurb again it said 15 to 20 minutes but cleverly on their leaflet they say the trips are not time specific. My family got into... More

Dear Terry K, Thank you for bringing this to our attention - we are truly sorry that you feel that you never got value for money. With all of our flights, we can never guarantee the timing as it is purely dependent on a few factors, namely wind speed and varying helicopter performance speeds. Hence why we do not publish...

This was my first time in a helicopter and I absolutely loved it!! The views of Capetown are awesome and the pilot was very friendly. We paid for the full hour, but due to aerial exercises we only did 1/2 hour. The pilot was apologetic, but nonetheless one of the best experiences I have ever had.

Dear notjustthecity, Thank you for your wonderful 5 star review - we are so thrilled that you enjoyed your flight. Due to the Navy Festival happening in Simon's Town, all helicopter flights had to be cut short as the Silver Falcons were doing aerial exercises.

The pilot Andre gave us very useful information where we were, what we could see and further very interesting information.

Had a great time. Staff were pilot and friendly. Pilot kept us informed throughout the flight. We did the ATLANTICO TOUR. It is expensive as with any heli-flip but worth doing if you can afford it. Total flight time was 16 minutes.
