Advice for visitors
The Huey can take a maximum of nine passengers, but there is an option to book an exclusive tour at an additional cost. It is also a child-friendly experience. While in the air, make a point to ask the pilot as many questions as you like. They are very informative and love sharing their knowledge about the city and the surroundings. The tour leaves from the iconic V&A Waterfront, which is the perfect start and end point for on-land adventures. Depending on when you have booked your flight, one could easily make a day of shopping, restaurant hopping and enjoying the activities that are on offer around the historic waterfront.
