It was a beautiful hotel inside and out. The thing that made it for me was the huge tree in the back and the restaurant being right there. It was beautiful and wonderful staff all around.


Oliver was our pilot and he was amazing ensuring to be soft with his flight to ensure you were not motion sickness, but at the same time gave us the best views the island has to offer. He hover while the sunset was at its best. Thank you Oliver you are the air boss!!!


Breathtaking tour with Kat, full of local tips from overhead about places to explore. All the staff were wonderful- Mahalo!


Amazing tour. We left at the perfect moment to catch the beautiful sunset. The views were beautiful and our pilot kept us informed about what we were seeing.


The sunset helicopter tour was quite an amazing experience! All the staff was very polite and punctual. The ride itself was something words cannot describe! Sitting in the sky above Waikiki was insane! Highly recommended to individuals who live for a thrill! You have the option to have the doors on or off and we decided to take them off to take in more of the view and we didn’t regret it! An overall amazing experience and look forward to coming back again for more.


We had a great time on the sunset 20 min ride. Pilot gave a great commentary on what we were seeing. Views were spectacular. Highly recommend this tour
