– You can have more direct interaction with the pilot and receive in-depth information about the sights you’re seeing. This allows for a more educational and engaging experience.

Booking Process:

– Rainbow offers Private Tours in the easy online checkout with best prices. When booking a private tour, customers typically first communicate directly with the tour company to discuss preferences at long length. Who has the time?

Cost Consideration:

– Private helicopter tours are generally more expensive than shared ones due to the peasonal and exclusive nature of the experience. However, for those seeking a special and private adventure, the added cost may be well worth it..

A private helicopter ride
  1. "I was surprised by my now fiancé with a private ride and landing. Nicole is so good at her job of flying and pointing out all the land marks of Oahu. The little details that were part of the engagement were perfect and I’m still in awe of it all. We never felt rushed and they let us take in the beautiful scenery. We had photographer Mark join us too and he was professional, friendly, and got some amazing shots of our special day. I highly recommend this company and Nicole and Mark."

Worth every penny
  1. "Such a cool experience. I live on the island so it was really neat to see everything from above. The views are stunning, and our pilot entertained us with facts but it wasn't overbearing commentary. I wish there was a way to book my seat ahead of time because the customer by the door took social media videos the entire time, so I had to crane my neck back and forth to see the views. Also, the flight video wasn't worth it for me. I thought the camera would've been set up outside the helicopter, but it was more like a dashboard cam. Overall, fantastic!! I plan on doing this again!"
