What's the best way to appreciate Cape Town as one of the most beautiful cities in the world? From the air, of course! There are a couple different companies that offer helicopter rides, but it's easiest to book from one of the kiosks in front of the mall at the V&A Waterfront. I recommend a ride that is at least 20 minutes to gain a full aerial overview of the Cape Peninsula. On longer tours around Cape Point, you really get a feel for how unique the different suburbs are and how varied landscape is. And, if you're lucky, during whale season you'll see breaching whales in the water.
