A great experience with a well organized and professional staff. Captain Nick was a knowledgeable pilot and was well versed in the local culture and customs. Definitely would do again in a heartbeat. Five star rating for sure.

This tour was fantastic. I saw things along the way that I really enjoyed. Some of the activities were not things I would not have known about without this tour. I’d highly recommend it.

Great chopper, excellent pilot with complete knowledge of the history of Maui…and breathtaking views in every direction! Mahalo Captain for a world class experience.

Was great, you learned a lot about the island and the individual stops. It is an advantage if you have internet.

It was great! Definitely our favorite of everything we did while in Hawaii!
