About
Nestled in a natural bowl beside the Atlantic, surrounded by sculptural mountains and golden beaches, Cape Town is one city that really merits being seen from the air. Take to the skies in a 6-person helicopter on this great-value tour from the V&A Waterfront. Circle Table Mountain; fly over Cape Town Stadium; and soak up views of the Atlantic Seaboard and Twelve Apostles. Your pilot provides live commentary throughout.

Highlights
  • Get a fresh perspective on landmarks such as Table Mountain and Lion’s Head
  • Skip the transport stress: Tour starts from the V&A Waterfront downtown
  • Enjoy a more intimate experience with a maximum of six travelers on board
What to expect
  • Begin your private helicopter tour of Cape Town at the V&A Waterfront’s very own helipad in the city center. Climb into your helicopter and settle in for an exciting ride, while your pilot provides informative commentary on what you’re seeing below. As you gain altitude, one of the first things you’ll see is Cape Town’s City Bowl from above. The natural amphitheater is framed by the impressive mountains that help define the city — Table Mountain and Lion’s Head among them. Soar over Cape Town Stadium, one of the host venues for the 2010 World Cup, and then circle Table Mountain for an unforgettable view of the landmark from all sides. From this lofty vantage point, it’s easy to see the patchwork of colors that nature has made — greens and browns of Table Mountain and Signal Hill Mountain next to the deep blue of the Atlantic Ocean. Fly past Lion’s Head and along the Atlantic coast, where — if it’s a clear enough day — you may even be able to see Robben Island in the distance. Look for the mountain range known as the Twelve Apostles, which runs along the Atlantic coast of the Cape Peninsula. Spot the pretty white sand beaches, including those at Camps Bay, Clifton Beach and Llandudno Beach — all popular beach resort towns. Continue past Karbonkelberg Mountain before flying over Hout Bay Harbour, and then — after about 18 minutes of flying time — head back toward the helipad at the V&A Waterfront to end your exhilarating tour.

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!!!!

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.

As a result of COVID, we decided not to have a birthday party for my son who turns eight this week. Instead, we decided to offer him a helicopter experience, which he absolutely loved! The flight was super smooth...in fact, I think I had more turbulence in my vehicle while driving to the Waterfront than during the flight, but that probably has to do with the driver. The whole crew was super helpful and friendly. Herman (manager) and Paul (pilot) allowed me to park my Shelby Cobra next to the helicopter for some cool birthday pics for my son. Unfortunately, the onboard video camera was not working, so we could not get the DVD and photo package we ordered, but Herman refunded us and included a USB containing all the scenes on our trip, free of charge. Thanks guys. Awesome experience. I am contemplating getting my own licence...

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.
