The receptionist was wonderful she had to weigh everyone and wouldn't tell us our weight she just said that it was perfect! Sherrel was an awesome and hilarious tour guide! He told us exactly what to do for our safety and made sure that we were in the helicopter strapped in correctly and after our flight he got each one... More

We had an amazing time with our cool pilot Bryan. He told us all about the different spots on the island. He would ask us what we did or wanted to do. The tour was magnificent, we saw things you could never see on the ground. It made us really appreciate the island's beauty. Our group's tour guide was Sherell,... More

I recently went on the Safari Helicopter Waterfalls Tour with my family-it was breathtaking! We have been on other helicopters tours on Kauai before and I highly recommend Safari. The experience was great; the staff at the office were friendly, the host gave us our safety briefing in an informative and entertaining fashion and our pilot, Buffy, was the best!... More

This experience exceeded our expectations. This is the best way to see the island! Our pilot was fantastic. She made the experience a true joy. The music and the information made it so special. The DVD is a wonderful way to relive the experience and share with friends. We highly recommend Safari to anyone visiting the island.

My husband and I have done several helicopter tours on different islands over the past 12 years. We recently took a family vacation with our 2 teenagers and had a wonderful helicopter tour around the island of Kauai. We were extremely pleased with the entire process and would highly recommend them to others.

Went on a helicopter ride last Thursday in Kauai and soooo glad we did it! The staff at the office were extremely friendly, happy people. Our host was also hilarious and great with our kids. Our pilot Brian was very informative and fun at the same time. The helicopter was very comfortable and the views were easy to see. Beautiful... More

We had a wonderful time. Our host was a laugh a minute and our guide/pilot was friendly and very knowledgeable. I would recommend this company to anyone wishing to take a helicopter tour of a Kauai. The views were awesome and will definitely do again when I return to the island.

First of all, the people are wonderfully kind. Our host was hilarious, our pilot was informative. If you have light skin, wear dark long sleeve and pants to cut glare in the windows. You have a better chance of rainbows and awesome shadows in the morning. This is the best way to see the island!

This was my second visit to the beautiful island of Kauai, and my second helicopter tour. The first one was many years ago, and I remember it well. Safari's modern helicopters are so comfortable and smooth, it really added to the enjoyment of the tour. The pilot was so informative about all the sights we were seeing. I would definitely... More
