This was a great way to see O'ahu from a totally different perspective. We got the first class tickets and I'm really glad we paid the extra for it. We had problems hearing the pilot's commentary, but was still an absolutely fantastic experience.

This is a must!!! Our pilot, Jeff, rocks! He knows the island and was able to make our flight not only informative but exciting. This was my first helicopter flight so I was a little worried but it was thrilling! We will be back to ride the open door Magnum PI helicopter next time! Can't wait!

Fantastic experience! Jeff, our pilot, gave a great commentary and was a lot of fun. We would do it again in a heartbeat.

A fantastic start to my husband's 60th birthday. Picked up by Kevin, who informed us about what would happen. Jeff was our pilot, and very informed about the island. Went past our hotel Ilikai. Over Diamond Head. Saw sharks in the Pacific. Jeff knew exactly when we would hit turbulence, so we would not panic. The climax for me was going over Pearl Harbour, and actually seeing the whole of The Arizona in the water. You cannot appreciate this whilst visiting the memorial, but this was fantastic. Kevin took our photo next to the helicopter at the end. It was the actual helicopter used in a Hawaii 5-0 episode. We traveled first class, and the extra money was well worth it.

From start to finish this was an awesome tour. Picked up right on time from our hotel, taken to the airport, shown a safety briefing and then onto the helicopter for an amazing tour of the island. Staff were all very friendly; chopper was clean and roomy; pilot was informative and pointed out so many features and places. Great trip and well worth the money.

Fantabulous! This was a great activity for any occasion...it was a 50th birthday and totally memorable for all the right reasons. To have such views of so many landmarks around Oahu, breathtaking and beautiful
We had the best exoerience that we would actually do another one next time, maybe to different locations over the Big Island? It was such a buzz! The pilot and ground staff were excellent, easy instructions and willing to chat. Excellent knowledge of all the areas and I cannot recommend this flight enough. Brilliant, a great activity for sure that should not be missed.

Wow. That's all I can say. Wow. I paid extra to stay in front and it was all worth it. The highlight was the valley/ranch where they filmed parts of Jurassic Park, Pearl Harbor and Lost and the pilot decided to pull a crazy stunt for us. The only negative for this is that they charge you $40 for the custom DVD of the full tour. I called the next day to buy it but they had already deleted it. Other than that, wroth every cent you will spend and a beautiful way to see Oahu.

My first helicopter flight and wasn't sure what to expect but the views were amazing. There was a bit of turbulence so as long as you are fine with that it is all good. The only part I didn't enjoy was that there wasn't any room at all and I was crammed in the front between the pilot and another person which made me feel sick as the seatbelt was cutting into my throat. My room would have made it alot more enjoyable.
