Fun ride. We were able to go right over an active volcano at treetop level. Winds were favorable for a few minutes. Quite a tour.
It was incredible! i was really nervous as I'm really afraid of heights and I was upgraded to a door-off flight! But the folks at Paradise Helicopters were really assuring and I felt really safe throughout the entire ride. Saw some lava rivers and a lava lake. Totally awesome! Would highly recommend this for anyone who comes to the Big Island. Shout out to Jie and our pilot Ryan!
Trip was fabulous. I highly recommend Viator for booking any excursions. Excellent to work with and extremely accommodating. Very professional.
This tour was absolutely amazing! Our pilot was great, very knowledgeable, and made our experience that much better. Thank you
Great trip even with a little rain! Friendly service, spectacular views, fun day!
We were upgraded. To the 2 hour tour from Kona. We enjoyed the tour. We saw lava flowing and it was incredible
Great tour and Awesome staff! Worth every penny! We loved our pilot Rachel.
This was an absolutely terrific tour! The staff at Paradise Helicopters was great. This was our first helicopter flight and it was so much fun! The pilot made sure that we saw everything there was to see at and around the volcano, and all of the waterfalls. We thoroughly enjoyed it!
Awesome way to get as close as possible to the active volcano Po'o U'u. Our pilot Rhys was very engaging, narrating a lot of info about Hilo, the falls and the volcanoes. I just wish it were a longer tour! I actually thought that flying over the water was included but sadly, it wasn't. But it was awesome nonetheless! I'd totally do a tour with them again, but this time, the 2hr one :)
Our trip was excellent. We had to reschedule due to the weather but it was so well worth it. Would definately go again! I rate the tour with five stars.
I booked this for my husband, my father, and myself. We went doors off. It was an experience of a lifetime. Our tour guide was great and customer service very friendly. Out guide would bank the helicopter both ways so that both sides could get the view. Would go again in a heart beat.
My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary, doors off the helicopter so nothing to block view. It was amazing! The entire staff was great, especially the pilot.
Fantastic!!! We flew with the doors off and were able to see so much more plus makes for a more exciting flight.. Great pilot. Joyce gave lots of information on what we were seeing, made sure we had ample time for pictures at the right angles. Highly recommend this adventure. Truly a 5.
Amazing helecopter flight around Kiluaua volcano made my wifes 50th birthday very special. The pilot was exceptional. Thank you.
This was amazing. We had the doors off which added to the whole atmosphere. The pilot was excellent and took us over the lava turning the helicopter and somehow tilting it sideways so we could get better views and camera shots. The whole trip was very informative and we saw the volcano and waterfalls. The trip lasted about 1 hour and we enjoyed every minute of it. We will certainly be taking this tour again.
Loved this, we only saw a little bit of lava, but our pilot Pete was friendly and knowledgable, the flight was fascinating and the waterfalls were beautiful
A very professional team, providing explicit instructions on what to do and what to expect. The pilot was exceptionally friendly and informative, providing us constantly with facts on what we were flying over. All positions in the helicopter were afforded equal viewing of the sights, including where the lava flow entered the ocean. A not to be missed experience.
Our lady pilot explained everything very well and made sure everyone had a chance to see the lava flow and waterfalls from both sides of the helicopter. She even went by the cruise ship so that we could get some aerial shots of it.
A great experience!
This was fantastic! we saw flowing lava and I have some great pics!! Well worth the money if you love volcanos.... and who doesn't
