The company was very professional to deal with. The booking system was very easy and we got picked up and dropped back to our hotel in Waikoloa by the company. Our driver was very friendly and informative. The trip itself was fantastic. Couldn't be happier.

This is the second time we've done a doors-off helicopter tour. Once you fly doors-off you'll want to do it again! The lava fields are amazing due to their size alone. Miles of lava fields. The active craters with bubbling lava, the lava oozing from...More

This was a grandpa/grandson (latter 5 years old) trip in an open-door helicopter. It was fun and not scary for us. The 45 minutes tour of volcanoes and waterfalls was just right. The grandson sat between the pilot and me. He was enthralled (fascinated) and...More

We drove from Kona to Hilo, I believe it was cheaper than taking the flight from Kona. My suggestion is the same as the other replies, check with the tour company. Enjoy your flight!

You cannot switch seats mid flight. If you bought a round trip you might be able to switch seats on the way back. They have to calculate seats using flight weight, so ask ahead of time
