This was an incredible, once in a lifetime experience. Oliver was our Pilot and he was amazing. Friendly, knowledgeable and checked in with everyone throughout the trip to ensure we were ok. The experience of viewing the islands from the helicopter is something everyone should experience on their Hawaiian getaway. Our tour was 1 hour long and it was just enough time to see everything advertised on the company's website. Thank you to the team of friendly staff who made all of this possible.

I went with my daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids ages 17, 16, and almost 11. We ALL loved it! Pilot and ground crew were awesome, and seeing Oahu up close from the air was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The kids said it was the coolest thing they have EVER done, so that is quite a review on itself. Expensive, but worth it!

Kyle who was our tour guide did an excellent job with everything he was doing to make our ride comfortable. We had doors off which if you sit in the back gets quite shaky but that was experience. He gave us the history and views in the 60 minutes up in the air. He also went through all the activities you can do throughout the island. Definitely recommend doing this in the beginning if your not familiar with the island.
