We had a great time on the helicopter ride on the pot it was great very knowledgeable my wife loved it I loved it right till everybody about it. Sincerely Robert Lily and Donnelly


A great first time helicopter ride for my daughter and sister. Pilot was friendly and skilled. The views were very cool.


Our pilot Darrell knew the best views to take us to and shared tons of fun facts with us - from movies made at each site visited to celebrity homes and more. We were scheduled for a 30 minute ride but were not rushed at all. We were definitely on island time and will be back!


By far the best thing we did ! the whole trip was assume! we decided to go with the doors off and so glad we did ! our pilot was great and very informative, they did a great job making us feel safe! just wow is what we had to say ! definitely highly recommend!


Cool experience . I recommend this tour!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best company for flights on the island Emma was great


Turner, our pilot was a great guide and pointed out all the landmarks. We did a doors off tour and highly recommend it with this company. They are safe, efficient and very friendly.


I have been on many helicopter tours, and this one was beyond compare! The staff was exceptionally friendly and went above and beyond to ensure we were prepared and comfortable. Our pilot, Jojo, kept us entertained while pointing out all the gems of Hawaii. I highly recommend Rainbow Helicopter Tours for your Hawaiian flight adventure!


Great service from the front desk, to all the staff really, and culminating with a fantastic pilot (Emma), her engaging dialogue with each of us was appreciated and superb narration of the scenery, history and geography as it unfolded live, was second to none. The views were spectacular (any other word falls far short), breathtaking perspectives and images that really one will never be able to experience - but on a helicopter. 5 stars and far better than my Maui copter tour.


Great experience! Good communication by the team with easy check in. Joel was a fantastic, friendly and knowledgeable pilot. Views were breath taking. Highly recommend.


It was just incredible! Worth every penny. I got upgraded to an hour for free. I sat by the pilot with doors off. He was such a great pilot, it was very smooth. The views of the mountains with so many crevices were amazing.
