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.

Exceptional tour, one of the best experiences I've ever done. Was lucky enough to have near perfect conditions for the ride and our guide Howard was friendly and informative. If you get the chance to do this whilst in Cape Town, would highly recommend.

Exceptional tour, nice views weather dependent and great pilot and comments.
First of all the staff at Cape Town...
vpwalker, Mar 2016
First of all the staff at Cape Town Helicopter was wonderful. The takeoff and landing was very smooth. During the flight there was slight wind Cape Town is famous for wind!!!. The experienced pilot made the flight very comfortable. I had a travel partner who never experienced riding in a helicopter before and he was thrilled!!!! The view of Cape Town and the coast from the sky is AWESOME!!! It's the only way to view the true shape of the Cape Town area with Table Mountain in the background. I recommend during the summer months to take off in the afternoon because Cape Town has a haze in the morning. I was fortunate to change my morning reservation to the afternoon flight times and was rewarded with clear spectacular views. I highly recommend Cape Town Helicopter for viewing the city from the skies!!!!
Postcard perfect panoramas await those...
Richard S, Nov 2015
Postcard perfect panoramas await those who endeavor to do this experience. The views are simply incredible and unparalleled! It was one of the many highlights of our trip to Cape Town. I couldn't rave about this company any more than giving them a glowing review because they deserve every bit of the praise. First off, when I called to confirm our reservation and couldn't quite figure out a way to get to the helipad, they offered to pick us up at our hotel. On the day of the tour, they were punctual at showing up at the hotel. Then, after we checked in, we were told that they were going to upgrade us to the longer tour Two Oceans tour instead of the shorter Atlantico tour that we originally booked as long as we didn't mind having 2 other people on the flight. Of course we didn't mind! Oh and by the way, they have lockers to store your belongings while you're on the tour. Once airborne, the views were just absolutely stupendous! The pilot shared information about, and pointed out, important landmarks along the way didn't hurt that he had a good sense of humor. We had a 360 view of Table Mountain that was just spectacular. In the end, we couldn't be happier about our tour. I more than highly recommend a helicopter tour and this company. You won't be disappointed. JUST DO IT!!!!
