Amazing Experience

Had an amazing Honeymoon experience with a private helicopter tour! Beautiful views, absolutely worth doing if you are visiting Oahu!
Great Service!!!

Amazing experience!!! My wife and I are both scared of heights but Bastian was a great pilot and it wasn’t scary as thought. It was great! The service was phenomenal and they prep you before and the views were amazing! Thank you so much!
Smooth flying, great sights!

Excellent tour! Our pilot (Cat) was fun and a very smooth flier. My wife gets motion sick easily but never felt close to getting sick. The sights were amazing throughout, the little rain actually made it so there were rainbows on the island. Highly recommended! If you’re going doors off, prepare a jacket and make sure to ask for a choice of eyewear so you don’t end up with giant ski goggles like I did.

The variant colors of the mountains and the ocean. Absolutely beautiful. Larsen was excellent as a pilot and guide.
Great way to learn where places are!

This was the best. Do it early in your trip so you can see where you want to go. We had Josh as our pilot. He was great. We did the 60 minutes, doors off private tour. I Loved every second of it. My husband, not so much. Hahaha. But he said he was glad he did it.
Great experience

So great! Doors off Private Tour is the only way to go! Only thing I didn’t like was my wife and I could not sit next to each other. (This is do to weight distribution, can’t be helped). Definitely a must do in Oahu!
