This was my first helicopter ride...exciting! Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate. It was a very overcast day. We were offered the options of either rescheduling, or getting a refund, or flying a slightly altered route with a beach landing instead of the cliff side landing. Since we were from a cruise, we were locked into this time frame. So we chose the altered route. One other couple rode with us. I felt very safe in the helicopter, although it was cramped and hot. The beach landing was excitingl. And it was on the island of Molokai! This was my only opportunity to see Molokai. It was very lush and beautiful. I gave this excursion a 4 out of 5 since the helicopter was small and hot. But it really was a very nice ride!
The flight was just so amazingly breathtaking, taking off from the airport and flying up alongside Haleakala and learning about the history and towns was just draw dropping and to then fly past the science centres and craters, unbelievable! The cliffside landing was a great break in the journey and being able to talk to the pilot and learn a little bit about him and the island was great. The best was yet to come though flying over the rainforest and waterfalls following the rim of the island. Just stunning! I really loved every second and found it to be excellent value for money. Thank you!
Highly recommend this tour. Our pilot was very knowledgeable and funny. Everything was very well organized. The cliffside landing was really special. Was on the ground for about 15 minutes taking pics of the gorgeous private coastline. I forgot that Haleakala was 10,000 ft in elevation, so I was struggling a bit with the altitude, but we weren't up there too long for it to cause issues for me. The views of the rainforest waterfalls were stunning. You wouldn't be able to see them unless you were in the air looking down.
Excellent tour, pilot and staff were very nice and very helpful Air Maui. We had a beautiful day and a great time. Highly recommend. The private tour was worth the for us and very comfortable since there were only 3 of us. Only caution I would offer is six adults will be cramped this is obvious when booking in the helicopter, so I'd consider this an ideal trip for up to 4 adults only small children making up to 6 people will be fine
Fantastic. Pilot was very friendly and gave us a first class commentary on the sights and history of Maui. The "pit-stop" on the mountainside was excellent, the food was first class and much more than expected. The view was fantastic, could have sat there all day. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
My boyfriend and I book this helicopter tour for our first trip to Maui! We were looking for something a bit different from the standard one hour tour and this Private Tour was just what we were looking for! It was both of our first time on a helicopter and from the time that Dave (our pilot) set off from the airport to the moment we touched back down we were not let down! It was the absolute highlight of our trip and the stop at Virginia's Place was amazing!! The food, was divine and the view... outstanding! We both would highly recommend this trip with Air Maui to anyone wanting that special view and trip around one of the most amazing spots in the world!! Thank you so much Dave, Virginia, and the staff at Air Maui for making our trip that much more special!!
