Truly Epic
, Sep 2021
Not all helicopter tours are created equal! Get EPIC AIR!!!! our helicopter was small which means only 6 people! We had head sets to hear our guide! It was a life changing experience to see the majestic land from 2k feet in the air! I saw a review that said the right side was the best side. I disagree, the windows are huge and our guide turned the helicopter so everyone saw everything. Probably 100 waterfalls could be seen with my eyes shut! From beginning to end everyone at Epic was kind, friendly and so sweet!
If I could give “-5” I would. They messed up the schedule but blamed me for no show
, Sep 2021
I specifically booked an afternoon slot which was listed for 12-4 as my flight would be arriving at Kauai airport at 11:15 am. Viator confirmed the booking in a text message “your helicopter tour is confirmed for 12-4 for September 6”. Instead Air Kauai Helicopter booked me to an 11:45am departure and expected me to show up by 11. When I tried to call, the phone number they provided was “out of service” - couldn’t even leave them a message. When I finally talked to their customer service rep, she didn’t offer any explanation or an apology for THEM messing up the scheduling. She blamed me for no show. Rep: why didn’t you show up? Me: I requested a slot after 12, you booked me to 11. Rep: well you should let us know. Me: Why? I requested a slot after 12. You didn’t honor that request but still confirmed the booking and charged my card. Instead of you calling me to notify the change, you expected me to call? Plus, I did try to call, the phone number was out of service when I called and I couldn’t leave a message. Rep: you should call after 8:30. Me: I called at 8am before I boarded the flight to Kauai and your fine print didn’t say to call only after 8:30. Rep: you should message through Viator. Me: your fine print didn’t say that. It just says to call the listed number with any concerns. Rep: I don’t have time for this. It’s no show and we will charge you for the booking. Here is the bottom line: Air Kauai Helicopter didn’t honor my booking for the listed time slot (12-4) in the first place but blamed me for no show. I may not recover the $260 I paid but you didn’t earn this the right way.
A must do!!

What an amazing adventure! We went all around the island and saw so many things you wouldn’t see by car or boat (do those too though). Adam is so knowledgeable and made sure we were all able to get good photos. So glad we bought the video too. Highly highly recommend!!
Awesome Experience
, Sep 2021
This is a MUST do tour if you visit Kauai. The Air Kauai team were great from check in to safety prep to photography to the flight itself. First time on a helicopter and Adam the pilot made us feel comfortable and gave us a truly memorable experience. The views were spectacular. Recommend this tour to anyone visiting Kauai.

Maiwea Canyon and thé Water falls in all that huge mountain. The pilot was very good and smood. I recommended the seat in front close to the pilot the view is the best!
Wonderful experience

This helicopter tour was great. Never been on a helicopter before it was a wonderful experience the captain and the crew were great. I would definitely go again
Amazing experience! Don't miss it.

This was an amazing experience! We felt completely safe and the views are incredible, flying above a canyon and so close to waterfalls with all the green and blue below you was beautiful. Get the front seat near the pilot, if possible and if you're not afraid of heights, though you can see just as good from every seat. The staff members were helpful and friendly, from check-in to the actual flight, our pilot was Adam and he did a great job keeping us safe and sharing information during our ride. This is the best price we found for this experience and it was totally worth it, value for money is guaranteed.
Worth the expense
, Aug 2021
Adam was a wonderful pilot, mixing the right amount of information in with the flight. The tour itself, like so many have said, is worth the expense and the time - you'll see areas of the island up close that you cannot in any other way. A boat trip to the Napali Coast would give something similar, but not from the number of angles, and the rest of the island would be unseen. Truly an impressive way to see Waimea Canyon and the Wai'ale'ale crater as well as the Napali coast.
A must do!

There was a problem with our booking and they no longer had room for us on the original day. I got a call from Air Kauai and they were able to work around our schedule and book our tour a different day which I thought was great. As for the tour itself? Absolutely amazing! Our pilot said there's no route for the tours, he just shows around his favorite parts of the island. It was magical. Like, we literally flew in Waimea canyon. We saw so many beautiful waterfalls and even got to see a few rainbows along our tour. They offer a video of the tour and a photo in front of the helicopter as a package. Which is so cool since they record the entire tour, they even have a camera inside the helicopter that records you too. We skipped on the video, but definitely took home the photo for memories. I would totally do it again.
