    A fantastic experience and I was smiling the entire ride! The front desk staff and our pilot, Jeff, were very fun and professional the entire time. Jeff was very knowledgeable about the island and the various locations as well as made the flight feel very safe and enjoyable. If you ever wanted to see a bird's eye view of Oahu, this is the must-do activity!

    It was totally worth it. This was a first time for us but we will do it again. You can see the whole island in less than 45 minutes and it is beautiful 🌈🚁🍍

    As a rotary and fixed wing pilot myself, I can say this operation is very well and safely run. Outstanding, highly knowledgeable pilot and staff. Nice facilities and aircraft in great shape. The tour was outstanding. Great way to start or wrap up your trip to Oahu!

    This was my first time flying in a helicopter. We had the first flight out that morning. Our pilot was a lady, Cat, she was the absolute best. What was supposed to be a 30 min flight turned into 1hr 15 min, all due to weather. We didn't make it completely around the island because there was a storm so we turned around and went back. Several times during the flight we circled in the air to avoid rain clouds. Also why we were in the air there was a big plane coming in to land. We circled about 3 times to stay out of the way. Cat handled the helicopter with so much grace. I did not get scared, just a little nervous, but that was because I seen the plane coming toward us. We had did a full circle tour the day before, so we got to see all those things in a different perspective. I have one complaint. The headphones. I could hear the pilot all the but it was very choppy, so when she was pointing out things, I didn't always understand her. Would definitely do it again!

    We booked the 20 minute city by the sea tour. Due to some unfavorable weather conditions it was expanded to 35 minutes and we got to see some inland island sites we would not have seen originally.
    We were supposed to have the doors off experience. About a week before, I received an e-mail stating that the helicopter we were to have would be down for routine maintenance. Because of that, we were offered a doors on experience with a free video of our trip. I had already paid $72.00 for a video, so they said they would give the freeby to my friend. I accepted. Good thing it was doors on as my friend is extremely afraid of heights and did not fare very well.
    Anyway, the trip was amazing from take off to landing. Our pilot, Sarah, was absolutely great. Very personable and knowledgeable about everything she showed us. And, she handled the helicopter like the pro that she is. We had some bumpy crosswinds and she maneuvered that copter like a boss!!!
    After going along Waikiki beach (where she hovered for a moment so we could get some great photos), we went around the back side of Diamond Head and saw some beautiful, lush greenery that we were not supposed to see on the original flight plan.
    I highly recommend Rainbow Helicopters to everyone. All of the staff were just great. If you book, try to get Sarah as your pilot. You won't be disappointed.

    I had the most amazing experience with Paradise Helicopters today. It was our second to last day staying at Turtle Bay and wanted to do something special. We opted for the 60 min doors off tour and it did not disappoint. Not gonna lie, I was nervous beforehand thinking about it. The second I strapped in, the pilot Josh was an absolute professional and made us feel so comfortable. We got a full tour of Oahu and saw tons of sites including Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head, Waikiki, Dole pineapple fields and more. Josh narrated the entire time and we learned so much about the island. The views were insane and we got amazing pictures and videos on our phones (they gave us a holder that goes around your neck). I can’t rave about this enough and if I could give it 6 stars I would. It really felt like a dream. This is a must do when visiting Oahu and definitely worth the price tag!

    The best thing we did on the island. Koji was a great pilot and we felt safe the whole time. Paid extra for front seats with no regrets!

    The sunset helicopter tour was quite an amazing experience! All the staff was very polite and punctual. The ride itself was something words cannot describe! Sitting in the sky above Waikiki was insane! Highly recommended to individuals who live for a thrill! You have the option to have the doors on or off and we decided to take them off to take in more of the view and we didn’t regret it! An overall amazing experience and look forward to coming back again for more.

    It’s one of the best prices I ever payed for a private Helicopter-tour for 2 passengers.
    We saw it all! Trust me, there are places inaccessible by jeep or even by foot and the experienced pilot gave us the best!
    Highly recommended. We drove to the airport to make it easier and faster.
    PS
    Door off, of course...
