  7. "Best family adventure ever! Tobias was our pilot and he was so knowledgeable about the island. Do it when you first arrive on the island so you can see everything without having to drive, then you can decide where you want to spend more time…we did our tour with the doors off and all 4 of us enjoyed it. Would definitely do it again and I highly recommend them!"

    Andrea Urbina • Aug 2023
  12. "We have been in several helicopter rides in the past. The emails prior to leaving started giving us some concerns. But our concerns were unfounded. From the moment we showed up on site for the ride until we got back, it was excellent. The last time we had a helicopter ride for an hour, I believe we got 47 minutes total. When you’re paying about $30 a minute that could be very frustrating. Our pilot, Joel, gave us every bit of the hour that we were hoping for. Very enjoyable."

  17. "I had the pleasure of embarking on a thrilling helicopter ride over the stunning landscapes of Oahu, and the experience was nothing short of extraordinary! Pilot Tobias, with his exceptional flying skills and warm demeanor, made this aerial journey an unforgettable one. From the moment we took off, Tobias ensured our safety and comfort, providing clear instructions and information about the scenic spots we would be flying over. His knowledge of Oahu's geography and history added a fascinating layer to the adventure, and we found fully immersed in the beauty of the island. The breathtaking views from the helicopter were beyond compare. We soared over lush rainforests, cascading waterfalls, and beautiful beaches, each sight more awe-inspiring than the last. The way Tobias expertly maneuvered the helicopter to showcase the island's most picturesque locations allowed my friend and I to capture stunning photographs and create cherished memories."
