We spent three weeks visiting the Big Island of Hawaii, Maui and Kauai. We went to many of the suggested highlights for each island and decided to try a helicopter ride before returning home. So glad we did because this was the highlight of our entire trip. The pilot was very experienced and made us feel very comfortable. The ride... More

We did a 3:30 pm tour from Lihue and it was amazing. My first time in a helicopter, it was comfortable and smooth. Paka did a great job as a pilot and a guide. The people with the transport to the airport & the office staff were excellent. Stopping on the Robinson land and talking to Keith Robinson who is... More

We had taken a helicopter tour of Kauai on our honeymoon in 1980. On this vacation, we decided to have the same experience again. It was every bit as exciting and fun as I remember. We were delighted we chose Safari Helicopters. Sherry was our van driver -- she was warm and funny. Julia was our pilot and was competent... More

Hello - This was our first helicopter experience, we also like most reviews did some research and this was came at a reasonable cost and provided reassurance for safety measures. High: The customer service, from the start was great. The shuttle representatives were wonderful, as they were funny and made you feel comfortable. I think this part is often missed,... More

This was my first visit to Hawaii and my first helicopter ride as well. The staff were great to deal with, the pilot was very professional and the copter seemed as new. The ride was very smooth and scenic. Why the "very good" and not "excellent"? When looking online for this copter ride, we had multiple companies to choose from.... More

My wife and I took the hour long waterfall tour around the Island of Kauai Hawaii. It was her first Helicopter ride. I have over 17,000 hours of flight time in both helicopters and airplanes, so I had some standards I was expecting to see before we would get aboard. They exceeded all of my expectations for safety, service and... More

We had done a helicopter tour of Kauai almost 20 years ago. Our traveling companions had not, and I had to work very hard to convince them try it. As we got off the helicopter at the end of the flight which lasted 50 minutes, one of our friends said, "That is the coolest thing I've ever done." Safari is... More

Having never been in a helicopter before this trip, we were excited. But we had no idea how wonderful it would be! Everyone at the office where we met was enthusiastic and so very nice. Brian, who flew the helicopter, could not have been better. The views were breathtaking! A few people prefer the open helicopters to the closed one... More
