Reviews

Did the 40 minute Valleys and Waterfall tour. Pilot Chris (ex Marine Corp pilot) also flew us down the coastline and into Pearl Harbor. First time in a helicopter for my 15 and 17 year olds. They absolutely loved it as did I. These guys are Top Drawer all the way and deserve a 6th Star on the rating scale. Do it! Chris M. Phoenix, Arizona

Have tried two other helicopters during previous trips. Definitely the best on the island to get the real Hawaii. Definitely worth the drive if from Waikiki.
