We did the Big Island Spectacular with Eric as our pilot and it was such a great way to see the whole Island. Eric was a fantastic pilot and guide, very knowledgeable and entertaining and went out of his way to make sure all sides got a great view of the hottest spots. This particular tour would be my recommendation... More

Greg O was a great pilot for our one hour Eco-Star helicopter tour from Waikoloa. He immediately calmed the nerves of our worried passengers as we began the tour on a slightly windy but very clear day. He provided just the right amount of commentary and eagerly responded to any questions. He clearly loves his job and the Big Island.... More

We had a great flight despite it being fairly windy, our pilot Julie had us hanging on for dear life when she took us for a close look at the waterfall!!! Bit too close for my liking but what an amazing pilot! But the trip was great and would definitely recommend it Julie was great and informative

Great flying with pilot Greg O who got us close to lava flows, waterfalls and ocean. Professional and well-run, we felt we were in good hands from the get-go. This is a splurge but if time or inclination doesn't allow you to visit those sights by car, it's a great alternative.

Great ride around the Big Island. The pilot Greg was informative and drove us up close to waterfalls and even close enough to the ocean to see whales. Gave us an appreciation of the beauty of the Island.

My husband and I took the 2 hour Eco Star tour of the Big Island of Hawaii. Our pilot was Toshi, who was an excellent navigator, fully knowledgable about Hawaiian culture, the Big Island and of course volcanoes! Our flight was smooth, we were comfortable, safe and secure. Toshi invited us to ask questions and make comments all while taking... More

We have been on helicopter tours on every island but NONE even came close to the thrill and emotion that today's ride over the active volcano was! Our pilot Chase took us down and close to the volcano that was boiling with lava, the lava flowing inro the ocean then into the deep canyons to see the waterfalls. The music... More

A two hour tour is the best deal. I can't imagine just choosing to see the volcano or waterfalls. Both areas are magnificent. Viewing the lava flow into the ocean was an amazing sight. Seeing the keyholes and waterfalls was just as impressive as the other side of the island. The ride was smooth and the helicopter a Cadillac. If... More
