Big thanks to all staff at Capetown Helicopters. It was a beautiful day and our pilot Ryan was great. He was very friendly and showed us all the interesting points around Cape Town. It was our first helicopter flight and we felt very safe. I would definitely recommend a flight with Capetown helicopters for anyone visiting Cape Town.

Had a grate ride. I was so pumped up before the ride. I had been looking forward to this for weeks. It was less adrenaline then I expected, but very calming so see the view. it was one of the highlights of my south Africa trip.

Awesome experience with a birds eye view of the fairest cape with the most fairest beautiful love of my life. What a special time! Including a whale off Muizenburg. Five star service including champagne (decent stuff) after the flight. Highly recommended!!!

Cape Town Helicopters were friendly and professional from start to finish. Whether it was the receptionist, the ground crew, or our incredible pilot Sammi, everyone was happy and helpful. The flight itself was really smooth - we had total confidence in our pilot, who pointed out places of interest along the way. Highly recommended!

We flew with Howard and he was safe and professional. I am a pilot and can tell you that you won't regret it. It is simply the best way to see Capetown. Hands down. Just ask for Howard, best guide.

The only complaint we had, was that we didn't book a... More

Genuinely thought this trip was excellent value for money, our Pilot Sammi was a great guide and pointed out everything we needed to know! Fantastic views and a fabulous experience! Because it's low season we got the R44 to ourselves for the price of just the two of us which made the experience seem extra special!! Thanks Sammi for a... More
