What people are saying about Hilo

The sightseeing flight was great and was definitely worth it. You get the exact time about 2 days before the booked date. During the flight you will be told some information by the pilot about what you are flying over. A sweater or jacket for the flight (without doors) is definitely important. Long pants would be good as well as it was really cold at times. I was wearing short shorts and was a little chilly.

Unforgettable experience that you should definitely do, if you have enough time. Due to the weather it can happen that the flight is canceled and re-scheduled, but you can not do anything against the weather. Nevertheless, it was just great !!!
