This is the second time, in six years, that I have done the Circle Island Tour. The second time was even better than the first. These guys are great and well worth the money.

You can't really see all the Island by road. Even enthusiastic hikers can't see all the rich landscape. You've really got to get into the air. Now there are many great (and expensive) helicopter tours, but I highly recommend Big Island Air for your tour....More
