Taxi? No I’m Just Waiting For My Uber Chopper
Uber has been changing the way Capetonians travel for a year already and to celebrate this, the company has launched a helicopter tour service, the Uber Chopper.
Here’s what you do:
Open your Uber app when you are ready to fly
Toggle to the UberCHOPPER option
Set your pick-up location and request UberCHOPPER
A representative will call you to confirm passenger and flight details
The VIP Uber vehicle service,will then whisk you off to the helipad at the V&A Waterfront to start your journey.
There’s a couple of different tour options:
Take a scenic flight along the Atlantic Coast over to False Bay, passing Fish Hoek to Muizenberg
R1800 per person (minimum two people per flight)
Cruise along the coast of the Cape Peninsula: from Cape Town to the Cape of Good Hope
R3500 per person (minimum two people per flight)
Customise your trip to any helipad in Cape Town and the surrounds: winelands tour, shark-cage diving.
Prices vary depending on the route.
