A great way to get a feel for the Cape Peninsula and the beautiful mountains. Phillip C, our pilot was very knowledgeable and shared some of the notable landmarks. A must for any first time visitor to "the fairest cape in the world"!

If you ever visit Cape Town, this is totally a must. It is pricy but it is totally worth it. Cape Town is so amazing but seeing from above just really showcases its beauty. Totally amazing experience. Highly recommend it.
