This really was a great tour. Koji, the pilot, did a fantastic job with his commentary and wonderful manoeuvres to maximise scenery and photo opportunities. I had done one other helicopter tour over another island in Hawai'i. This one was superb and probably hard to beat. Strongly recommend this!

This was amazing. Absolutely loved the flight over the island to see the changes from one side of the island to the other. Fascinating to see the lava trails, some smouldering trees and then the lush green on the other side of the island. Felt very safe with our pilot

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This was brilliant - completely round the island, over Mauna Loa and past Mauna Kea - with excellent clear views of the tops! Then off to the active volcano, Kilauea - a look at the lava flows, the active crater and where lava boils into the sea! After this, we went off and did the scenic valleys and waterfalls - it was excellent. The pilot was exceedingly good, making sure that he showed everything to both sides of the helicopter by flying in and out - wonderful! It was definitely worth paying for the extended flight - a short one would not have taken us to see the whole island and would not have been a fraction as good. A once in a lifetime experience that did not disappoint!

I was incredibly nervous for this trip, as I hate heights and my stomach tends to get a bit nervous during flights! This trip was AMAZING! You essentially get to see everything you possibly would want to see, from a view that not many people can say they have seen. Our pilot was amazing, and reviewed details of our trip before taking off. Once we were loaded into the helicopter, we were off for an adventure of a lifetime! My fiancé and I would recommend this tour to everyone, although it is pricey, you will not be disappointed!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2017

I am lucky enough to have had numerous helicopter experiences so I am well placed to testify to how good this is! Troy is a fantastic pilot and guide and the perspective this gives you on overlapping lava flows and the lava lake through to the absolutely extraordinary valleys in Kohala is really only able to be seen from a chopper like this.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

Our pilot was as excited as we were to see the lava from the volcanoes, even though he had probably seen it many times. Pricey, but worth it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

Excellent I have been on a few helicopter rides on the island but this one was by far the best . My mom is 89 years old and she was very impressed with the knowledge of the pilot about the island and the history. I would highly recommend this helicopter ride and the staff was 100 also like to thank Paradise Helicopter and the owner for a great day.
