A wonderful experience and a great way to take in Cape Towns sights from a different perspective. Pilot was also a great guide with plenty of information and answers to questions. If anyones a nervous flyer, be assured they take your safety seriously, from a safety briefing through a walk out to a helicopter and helpong you strap in, to being collected and escorted safely away from the helicopter. Ground crews also managed to find time to help the passengers with their photos and were happy to take the shot of you beside the helicopter on your own camera, rather than charging you a ridiculous sum to purchase a photo they took. Can't recommend them enough!

We were traveling by helicopter at the end of March. My 1 year old son and I were the only ones, which is why we had the helicopter all to ourselves. Our pilot was great. He has told and explained and shown a lot. Since the weather was great, we had a great view of Cape Town. Greeting at check in was also very good and super friendly.

Wir waren überglücklich, diesen Flug gebucht zu haben! ein super Hubschrauber und vor allem ein klasse Pilot. Dave, sehr erfahren und total lustig. 12 Minuten wurden auf 15 ausgedehnt und waren völlig ausreichend, um von der Waterfront, am Stadion vorbei über Sepoint bis nach Camp Bay und zurück. Wir hatten perfektes Wetter und fühlten uns zu jedem Zeitpunkt !
