Great trip! Smooth flight, lots to see and learn. Very knowledgable and professional pilot made this excursion a highlight of our first trip to Hawaii. I highly recommend Paradise Helicopters!

I'm SOOOOO glad I took this tour...ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!
The Big Island is SOOO BIG and has something to offer EVERYONE! And, some of the island's most beautiful areas can only be experienced from above!
I only had 2-days to spend on the Big Island, so I decided to take this tour immediately upon arriving. I figured that based upon what I found interesting on the tour, I could determine where I'd like to spend the remainder of my time. This was a GREAT way to make the most of my time.
I'd HIGHLY recommend this tour...HIGHLY!

Excellent from pickup at hotel to organisation of taxi on departure the staff were friendly and competent.The trip itself was spectacular and made even better by the extremely competent pilot who was both informative about the places seen and considerate of the passengers by preparing them in advance for maneuvers made by the helicoptor.

The pilot did a great job but you could not understand much of what he said. I asked for a good seat to take many pictures but had to fly backward and try to take pictures through a small window bu twisting sideways. Not easy! Good thing that I did not have to pay extra for that seat! I was unhappy!

We had a fantastic 2-hr Big Island helicopter trip from Kona. My husband, my parents and I all enjoyed seeing the spectacular scenery of the volcanoes, waterfalls and coastline from the air. My mum wanted to come to Hawaii just to spend time looking at volcanoes and the best view of them was from the air.
Our safety was very important for the crew.
All passengers got the opportunity to take photographs and our pilot was well informed and very generous with his time and our questions.
I would recommend this trip unreservedly to anybody wanting a complete overview of the Big Island of Hawaii - helicopter is the best way to see all there is to see!
Thanks for a great trip (Viator and Paradise Helicopters).

Very disappointed. There were too many people in the helicopter. I was the person in the middle, I couldn't see much of the scenery or take any pictures. The middle seat needs to be eliminated. I paid full price to see very little and be squished. My husband had a window seat but couldn't take proper pictures since he was so tight that he couldn't view through his camera the picture he wanted to take. Our main focus for taking this flight was to get pictures of the volcano but we didn't spend much time at the lava sights but spent a lot more time at the waterfalls (which were beautiful) If we would have had a great experience we would have recommended to our family to take this. We did mention to the Paradise helicopter representative not to use the middle seat and everyone would have been much happier, but he wasn't receptive to this idea. If you are planning a helicopter trip, check to see if you will be overcrowded, otherwise you will be wasting your money.
