WOW!!! This was everything we hoped to see and experience, yet even better! Our pilot, Sam, was perfect, giving us excellent tour info about what we were seeing below as well as relevant island lore. It wasn’t certain we’d get to fly over Kilauea, but we did get spectacular views of that and the whole eruptive/lava history of the area as made clear from above. You can’t see this stuff any other way, not like this! I found it very moving and beautiful. Sam also gave good suggestions for other area places to see as she pointed them out from above. We LOVED this tour, and ground staff were also warm and welcoming. DO IT!!!


Staff were very friendly and accommodating and pilot excellent and informative. Scenery was magnificent.


Nice informative flight. I was expecting that we would get closer to the waterfalls. The seating was cramped but views were good. Pilot was fine and business like. Definitely the best way to see the volcanoes and surrounding terrain.

The best way to see many volcanoes in just 55min. Unfortunately expensive and very dependable on the weather. We were lucky and weather permitted to see all we wanted.


Our pilot was great!! The entire tour was wonderful and very informative! Wish we could go again but we aren't here long enough.


It was a clear day. The view was spectacular..The pilot was very informative. The ride was smooth. I would recommend this tour.


I don’t often leave reviews, but Sam was the best helicopter pilot and guide we have ever had (prepped well by Cookie!) It was the smoothest flight and best info, friendly and personal but professional. The park viewed from above was incredible. She even took a few extra minutes to show us some beautiful waterfalls. Definitely a memorable five star experience all around.


Sam, the pilot was so amazing and we had so much fun it was so cool to see everything from the helicopter


Incredible experience with an amusing soundtrack! You're taken right into a volcano. The crew and office staff were communicative and great to deal with.


The tour was great. It’s the fourth time we are doing a helicopter ride somewhere and therefore start to compare the different experiences we had. The operator was very professional, the pilot/guide clearly very experienced and the communication with us (bad weather, potential to stop the tour after a few minutes) was done really well. Fortunately did the weather get better and we did the flight. Great way to view the volcano national park.
