My husband and I did the Grand Circle Tour and it was worth every cent. What a great way to see the island, I am afraid of heights but felt right at ease and we had front row seats. The pilot (I forget his name) takes you right in to the canyon and up close on the Na Pali coast.... More

Excellent customer service and amazing experience! When I called to inquire about making a reservation, Linda took the time to answer all of my questions in detail. I was really nervous about the flight, but forced myself to go and I couldn't be happier! Warren was our pilot. He was enthusiastic about his job, very knowledgable and really nice. The... More

This was my first ride on a helicopter and it was well worth it! We did the tour on our first day on Kauai and it was great to see the whole island, and have an idea of where we were throughout the rest of our trip and excursions. The tour was amazing, we landed at the Jurassic Falls (and... More

We took the Jurassic Falls flight just after Hurricane Ana last year as it was not recommended to be out on the water. Was a fantastic way to see the entire island, and I was amazed at just how many waterfalls there are scattered around the mountains. Stopping at Jurassic Falls was fantastic, it really let you appreciate its size,... More

My wife and I expected this would be the highlight of our trip and would provide memories for a lifetime. We were right which is why we decided to fork out the high price tag. It was worth it. The landing at the falls and the falls themselves were unbelievable, I have seen Yosemite and Bridal Veil Falls in Yosemite... More

My family of 4 (kids 13 and 15) took the helicopter tour while cruising NCL Pride. A Hurricane changed our planned arrival by 3 days earlier than expected. The company was so understanding and cancelled our originally planned trip and rebooked us at the very last minute on another flight. Needless to say the helicopter tour was absolutely worth every...

If you go to Kauai, the Jurassic Falls Tour is a must!!! The whole Island is just amazing, Na Pali Coast, the Falls, Waimea Canyon are amazing and the helicopter tour allows you to see it in a unique way! Is not a cheap tour, but you won't regret it. Worth every minute, every dollar. Kauai is probably one of... More

Though we hesitated to take this ride and landing at the falls due to the price tag, it was worth every dime. Our pilot was professional and informative. We were with s lovely family and we all asked questions and had a relaxing time. On our previous visit in Kauai, we took a competitors ride, and found this tour better... More

I was very aprehensive to spend so much money on a helicopter ride. I also get motion sickness and wasn't sure I could do it. I am so glad I did. Our pilot (I forgot his name) was the BEST!!! He made sure that every side of the helicopter could see. Turning all sides to the falls and in the... More

We took the Jurassic Falls tour and loved every minute of it. The view is outstanding. The stop at the falls was really something to see. The tour took us over the Waimea Canyon, the Napali Coast the around the whole island of Kauai. Worth every penny!
