This felt like a lot of money before we went up in our Eco-Star helicopter, but it was well worth it. Our pilot, Julie, was experienced, professional and friendly. The entire tour takes about 45-mins, but there's a lot of prep (safety videos, etc). Arrive early. In addition to Bose noise-cancelling headsets for each passenger, there are webcams that document...

My daughter and I got the helicopter ride as a Christmas present. We arrived early by Uber as wasn't sure on traffic. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We went through the safety procedure which was well done. We got the front seats which we were so pleased about. Our pilot was Julie who was great and talked the... More

We flew from Honolulu to the Big Island for the volcano helicopter tour, which was supposed to be the highlight of our 10-day trip to Hawaii. This tour was strongly pushed by Discover Hawaii. We arrived during our appointed time and weighed ourselves and checked in. Then, all of a sudden, we were advised that, due to weather conditions, they... More

We booked over the phone prior to being in Oahu and did receive a special on-line rate! So plan ahead! Pick-up from hotel was included. Very professional set up. The helicopter itself looked very new, was spotless and roomy. Certainly made a great first experience when you get in! Pilot (Kristi with a "K") was very professional, friendly and personable....

Our 12/23/16 tour skipped Sacred Falls, Mokoliʻi, Nuuanu Valley.... basically all of the most striking features advertised (in my opinion). Had I been told in advance I would have rescheduled / cancelled. Half the tour for full price. Something I've always wanted to do left me very disappointed.

Highly recommend- book for the start of your trip in case you have to reschedule due to weather- easy to reschedule for future dates. Best way to familiarize yourself with the island as well!

Great tour! Chris was a great pilot. He communicated with the group and was personable to all ages. He circled the best sites multiple times so that everyone in the helicopter got a good view. They assign seats to balance the helicopter. The itinerary is counter clockwise around the island (Oahu tour) so the port-side seats have an advantage at... More
