Sheray was awesome! He took us to the helicopter pad and was so informative! We then had Brian as our Pilot. He was very knowledgeable and such a great guy even when I got sick from taking too many pictures! He was very professional and helped me out when I needed it! I would do it again in a heartbeat!...

After booking this tour I was contacted to change my day to an afternoon tour based on the possibility of inclement weather later on in the week. Not wanting to take the chance I went ahead and drove to their HQ by Lihue airport. When I checked in I was immediately asked if anyone had told me to wear a... More

Delayed for reasons not explained. Seats 4 across in back seat. The two in the middle, of which I was one, have less than an optimal view to either side or forward. Personnel very professional and concerned about your comfort and safety. Didn't get to see several sights due to weather and the delay allowed the weather to deteriorate.

Very professional. Amazing views. We paid $50 extra so we could get the front seats. You can't be more than 6ft 1in to sit on from though.

If a helicopter tour of Kauai isn't on your bucket list it should be. The tour with Safari helicopters was one of the best things I've ever done on any vacation. The views were absolutely breath taking.

The ride was amazing! Smooth, professional, an all around priceless experience! The weather was spotty in some parts of the island but it didn't matter.

Best way to see the island! If you want to see parts of the island not accessible other ways, definitely take this tour. Views are breathtaking. The ride is so smooth and our pilot was friendly, funny, and very informative. Definitely worth the money! The pilot makes sure every one in the copter is able to see the views. We... More

The pilot makes or breaks this tour. Julia was a smooth pilot. No abrupt moves, just nice turns so everyone could see. Just the right amount of narration and was able to answer questions. She gave a great tour.

The tour we took on Kaui was definitely the highlight of our stay. One word sums it up: "awsome". Our pilot, Julia, was also very resourcefull, competent and did a great job. We purchased the video of our flight and, though the image quality is ok, the audio and overall experience is well worth the investment as a souvenir. A... More
