We all enjoyed the guided tour and of course the view was excellent. We were lucky with a very clear day. My husband 85 had this on his bucket list. Well worth the cost. Thank you.
Beautiful views and a fantastic flight. Organisation was efficient from pick up to drop off and we really enjoyed the pilots attempts to chase the lava down so we could get the best photographs.
Took a two hour helicopter ride with Paradise Helicopters. They operate out of Kona airport. If you contact them when in your resort you may be able to persuade them to send a complimentary cab for you - we found this out when we spoke to our hotel staff and this saved us about 100 dollars - so worth a phone call. The trip was excellent - the pilot was amusing and I felt safe at all times. The scenery was stunning and I would recommend this trip to anyone. It may seem expensive but it is worthwhile. definitely worth upgrading to a guaranteed window seat - and wear dark clothing as the windows can pick up reflections which can hamper photography.

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip! Katie was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the tour and was so attentive to all of our needs. We enjoyed hearing about her experiences living on the island as she asked us questions of our lives. She made us feel as though we were hanging out with a new friend for the day! I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting the Big Island! A big Texas Thank You to Katie for a great day!
Awesome experience!! Had to wait a little while in the water fro the mantas to show up, but when they did it was wonderful. We had 2 different ones swim directly under and in front of us. Our tour also had the unexpected bonus of a pod of wild dolphins showing up and swimming and jumping right next to our boat.

Best tour EVER! Seeing the caldera by day and by night was a wow experience! We also had the lava tube to ourselves and the rain forest by night smelled sensational! Taj was our guide and is very knowledgeable and now I wish I had taken notes. He is very personable and sees to your every need and comfort. If or when I come back, I will take this tour again and hopefully get Taj as our guide! Only one thing to say to anyone thinking of doing this trip-DO IT!!!
Fantastic tour, great sunset and the stars just unbelievable
Great tour guide
EVERYONE REALLY ENJOYED THE TOUR..FOR WHAT IT WAS...THE GUIDE DID A SUPER JOB EXPLAINING EVERYTHING....
.I WAS VERY, VERY, DISAPPOINTED THAT THEY NEVER GOT TO ENTER THE BUILDINGS TO SEE THROUGH THE TELESCOPES...THAT IS THE IMPRESSION I WAS GIVEN WHEN I SPENT 1,300.00 ON A GREAT TOUR THAT INCLUDED THE OBSERVATORY BUILDING BEING ENTERED and THEN GETTING TO LOOK THROUGH THEIR HUGH TELESCOPES....JANET HILL
We saw far much than I expected, it was excellent value and I highly recommend this company
Excellent, thanks Katie
It was great even though the wind kept us from viewing the Arizona. Ed was a great guide and made the day a memorable experience.
Very impressive! fantastic guide, highly redommended!
Enjoyed the views on this tour while the tour guide did the driving!
This luau was one of the highlights of our trip! They put on a great show, and everything was well-organized and well-timed. It's tricky to balance the variety of things they provide drinks, environment, performance and accompanying equipment, and food, but everything is taken care of. The Emcee was very engaging, and the food was expertly prepared. I would highly recommend Island Breeze Luau.

The Manta Ray Night Snorkel with Fairwinds was a once in a lifetime experience. Everyone should do this. There were 5 or 6 boats out there from other companies and it was obvious that ours was the best prepared and had the best equipment and crew. Two women we talked to on our trip said they had gone before with a different company and this was so much better. I recommend it. Even my husband, who is not a snorkeler, loved it!

First time to Hawaii....a wonderful tour and highlight of our trip...intimate experience with only 5 people plus Katie, the awesome tour guide...all day event in which you honestly see most of the Big Island. Kona Coffee Farm, Macadamia Nut Farm, Black Sand Beach, Volcanoes National Park and a quick stop at 6000 feet to stargaze. Katie was absolutely awesome, being fully prepared for the adventure snacks, drinks, raincoats, iPads, flashlights, a ukulele!. Very skillful as a musician and photographer as well as very knowledgable. Absolutely would recommend to anyone headed to the Big Island.
Friendly staff, smooth ride, and gorgeous views. What more could we ask?
Our guide Nate was amazing. Incredible encyclopedic knowledge of the Big Island.
He also took the time to show us off the beaten path spots.
This tour was through Hawaii Forest and Trail tour. Very very good.
What an experience. Really heart felt. The ones who lost their lives are true hero's to all of America,
I am truly blessed to have been able to see this. Thank you!
