We had booked the 4-hour helicopter tour to Idiom Wine farm. It was a fantastic experience. Our pilot Werner was excellent, very friendly and took great care of us during the day. Thanks so much!

What can I say other than fantastic! My husband booked a trip for my birthday, we were flown from the V&A all the way down the Peninsula and across the wine lands - flying around 500 feet to avoid Cape Town Airport and landing at the Idiom Wine Estate. Our pilot Chris was brilliant, it was a very windy but sunny day and the landing was fantastic under difficult conditions. How special did I feel on my birthday with a private helicopter dropping me off for lunch and waiting to take me Back again after lunch. All the arrangements were made by the Helicopter company with a wonderful four-course lunch with wines followed by a great trip back to Cape Town. Thanks for making it such a special trip. Highly recommended.
