We flew the hour tour on Wings Over Kauai last Saturday. Josh was a personable and capable pilot, and the rest of my part (seated on right side of plane) had a great experience. Sadly, I was on the left side, and had minimal views for much of the tour, had to lean over to attempt to see out (and... More

Awesome service. Our pilot, Bruce, made a point to keep track of all our names and interacted with each of us by name throughout the flight. A very nice touch. We actually flew through some rain (as might be expected as you approach the rainiest mountain on earth) and turbulence didn't get uncomfortable. They had assured us that if they... More

I'd recommend doing the tour as one of your first experiences on the island. The pilot was incredibly informative and personable and gives you a range of ideas/areas to explore during your time on the island. The views are amazing and you will love the experience.

My wife and I picked Kauai to celebrate our 40th anniversary, and our Wings Over Kauai air tour was a high lite of our trip. My wife is not comfortable with heights, so we selected a fixed wing tour rather then a helicopter tour. For a few extra $ we chose the Cessna 172 and had the plane to ourselves.... More

We have nothing but good things to say about this outfit. I tried to book online but everything looked full and I was working on my smartphone which made it difficult. I gave up and called, and Ellen was helpful and patient with me, and let me know how to go about booking. We got our flight scheduled (for the... More

This is the way to see Kauai! The air van is small (holds six and pilot), but everyone has a great view. Our pilot was super. He engaged everyone, had interesting facts to share and ensured everyone was comfortable and had a good time. This trip is about 1/2 the price of helicopter and was a great way to see... More

This was a treat! I've taken a helicopter tour, which was cool, but sometimes a little unnerving. If you want a little more metal around your seat area, do this flight. The ride was totally smooth, and personally narrated by the pilot...sitting right next to me. To make the flight extra special, I got to help with the pre-flight check... More

Val and Bruce made the experience of my piloting the Cessna 172 a wonderful experience. Bruce's over all relaxed demeanor, knowledge of flying and information of the beautiful island of Kauai was priceless.

We have been to Hawaii several times and taken just as many helicopter tours over the islands. This time we decided to take to the air by fixed wing. Man it was a great way to see the island and I got some phenomenal pictures. To be fair we also took a helicopter tour a few days later back around... More

My husband, 4yo and I loved this flight - Bruce is funny, entertaining and extremely knowledgable about the island (and flying). It was a terrific way to see Kauai and we are so happy we did this tour. Thank you!
