Cape Town is the most beautiful city in South Africa and was voted the best city in the world by UK’s Telegraph Travel Awards 2017 for the fifth consecutive year. Many would maybe disagree, however, viewing The Mother City from above confirms it is indeed the most beautiful city in the world. Cape Town Helicopters, top-rated tour company in Cape Town, is the company to go to if you wish to hop on and see Cape Town from a bird’s eye view.

A stone’s throw away from the V&A Waterfront shopping mall, Cape Town Helicopters offers a variety of flights depending on how deep your pocket is! When it comes to providing an unforgettable experience that comes with great service Cape Town Helicopters is forced to be reckoned with. From user-friendly booking system and welcoming front desk ladies to informative pilots who you can tell are passionate about their job and city, Cape Town Helicopter will exceed your expectations.
If you are looking for affordable flights, scenic flights will be the best option. Two Oceans Flight scenic is Cape Town Helicopters’ most popular flight. The flight takes off at the V&A Waterfront (the heart of Cape Town) flying along Atlantic Coast over to False Bay, passing Fish Hoek to Muizenberg. Before you board, you do weight and balance that determines who sits where on the helicopter, such a bummer you can’t choose your own seat! Afterwards, you are shown a short video about the safety and precautions from the air before you are escorted to your flight like a VIP. From the air, Cape Town’s famous spots such as Cape Town Stadium, Lions Head, Table Mountain, Twelve Apostles, and Camps Bay greets you with a smile. If you’re lucky, you will spot whales playing in their territory as you will be flying above sea.
The most exciting and memorable part of the flight is pilots’ commentary about all historic landmarks of Cape Town you see from the air. Cape Town Helicopters pilots are not only pilots but also qualified tour guides as well. The pilots can also make the flight more adventurous and increase adrenaline rush experience by performing aerobatics transitions.
Maybe you are concerned (as you should be) about noise levels you will have to deal with while flying. Cape Town Helicopters invested $10 000 on Bose aviation headsets and fly in Airbus EC120 & EC130 helicopters modern machines built for tourism not just to fly. These machines operate below 86 decibels and you’ll also put on Bose aviation headphones to protect your ears.
What’s a flight adventure without selfies and aerial photos to post on gram or Facebook and share your experience with your friends?! With an almost full glass cockpit that gives every passenger an amazing view, Airbus helicopters allow you to take good aerial photos.
The flight returns back to V&A Waterfront via Southern Suburbs flying over Groote Schuur Hospital (performed first world’s successful heart transplant) and University of Cape Town. In no time at all, you back at the V&A Waterfront where you took off.
