Howard, our pilot took us over some of the most breathtaking views imaginable. He gave us a running commentary that really helped us understand the scenery that unfolded. He also took us through a ravine that brought home just how exhilarating and fast our flight was. Brilliant!!

we took an extended round trip over Cape Town and enjoyed the fantastic view, the professional handling of our trip, the comments and info exchange with the very friendly pilot very mjuch. Definitely a life-time experience. One little improvement comment: the video sequences taken directly in-flight is a brilliant idea and should be pursued to give a lasting memory.

I recently had the fortune to be flown by Fraser from Robertson down to Cape Agulhas via the Hemel en Aarde. Very comfortable flight from a courteous and professional pilot - couldn't have felt in safer hands. He was also great at pointing out the wildlife and ensuring we all got to see everything. 100% recommend

this is a must for any visit. We were staying in a V&A waterfront hotel so very convenient (heliport walking distance). The views of CT, Table mountain, the two oceans, the peninsula and - would you believe the occasional whale and shark - were breathtaking. The Airbus helicopter is quiet, stable and has nice big windows. We also struck lucky... More

It is truly something special to view our Cape from a different perspective, and going up in a helicopter is one very special way to achieve this. Sammi, our pilot, was excellent with a superbly smooth ride, showing us stunning views (including whales in the Bay), and she had great knowledge of the area. Would definitely recommend Sammi and Cape... More
