We took the two hour round island tour in a 7 seater. John our pilot was first class, and kept up a good commentary for the whole trip. Even his corny jokes were tolerable. We were able to see most things, and John went out of his way to ensure that people on both sides could see. While not cheap... More

We booked a helicopter tour for my wife's birthday to see the Big Island. The staff was very helpful and they provided shuttle service to and from the Hilton Waikoloa Village Hotel. We have a handicapped daughter and the staff was exceptionally accommodating for her needs. They had no issues with getting her in and out of the helicopter and... More

If your budget can afford it take the 2 hour helicopter tour and you will see all the sites the Big Island of Hawaii offers. It is impossible to describe what it is like to fly over an active volcano but it is a sight you will never forget. The company running the helicopter tours could not be more accommodating.... More

The 2 hour tour was outstanding! Our pilot was very well trained and helpful. We brought our 16 month old son and he loved it. The views are unreal. 5- Stars!

Signed up for the tour, paid the huge sum, and we were picked up. Taken to the airfield, given our life vest and then our name and another couple's name were called and we were ushered inside only to be advised that the "chopper had mechanical/air conditioning problems and wouldn't be flying". Our last day, missed the trip. We got... More

My husband and friend were recently in Waikoloa for another friend's wedding and we debated whether or not to spend the money for the Big Island Spectacular. All three of us agree that it was some of the best money we spent while on this holiday. First of all, the operation is very well managed and operated - we felt... More

We scheduled the Circle of Fire tour for our trip to the Big Island. Our tour was scheduled for 11am and we were requested to be there by 10:15. We drove over 2 hours from Kona and arrived at 10:05. I asked to take my daughter to the restroom at checkin. But, they would not let us use the facilities... More

We took a 2 hour round island tour. The tour was breathtaking and felt both safe and exciting. The diversity around the island is unreal and the pilot made sure to go around on lots of different angles to get the best view and photos each time the scenery changed. Bathe cabin music was a nice touch.

We did the "Big Island Spectacular" trip yesterday and it was amazing. I wanted to do this mainly to see the active volcano but it was the waterfalls and valleys that made the trip. The volcano isn't very active right now but we did see red in the crater and a small amount of lava in the rift zone. It... More
