I love flying in a helicopter, but this trip was especially nice. The scenery, well it's Hawaii, of course it's outstanding. For this ride, the pilot was great!!!!! And the ground crew were also great. You should definitely go on this if you are on the Big Island!!!
Great tour.

Wonderful change of perspective to view not only the volcano but the surrounding terrain. Full explanations by our pilot of what we were viewing throughout the trip. I highly recommend this tour.

The guy after us yelling at the lady at the desk b/c his tour was cancelled. Our tour was cancelled too and we had to wait around for 3.5 hours for another tour. Way over-priced. Disappointed.
Breathtaking. A must have experience.
, Jul 2021
The view is spectacular. To see the depth of the crater is breathtaking. No matter where you sat the pilot made sure everyone had a close view The pilot was amazing; friendly and very knowledgeable on the ecology but most of all the history lesson on Hawaii was for me the icing on the cake.

Loved this tour. Flying over volcanoes and seeing so many rainbows. Never have a seen a complete circular rainbow until this tour. The pilot and staff were awesome. I would not think twice about doing this tour again. One of the highlights of our stay on the Big Island
