Very smooth flight. We didn’t know what to expect since it was our first helicopter ride. So we were very happy that we didn’t feel scared at all! The views of Oahu from up there were truly amazing! Unforgettable! Toby was very knowledgeable and we learned a lott. We highly recommend this tour of Oahu from the air.

Ray the pilot was an excellent host. I suffer from motion sickness and he took extra care to not have the flight be as bumpy to save me some discomfort. I appreciated that! The views were some of the best I've ever seen in my life. His wife Jill was kind & gracious as well. I highly recommend this tour/adventure.

Amazing experience with the doors off! Beautiful scenery and you get to see a lot of the island. We got a little more than the 45 mins :) Cat, our guide was wonderful. If you’re afraid of heights and don’t like turbulence, I wouldn’t recommend.

We flew doors off and it was really cool, a little terrifying when the helicopter turned and you're looking straight down but still awesome. Highly advise wearing a jacket for doors off.

This was a great experience. The guide knew all about the local plants the land etc. Landing I the rain forest was incredible. I am so glad we booked this trip.
