Good times in a chopper - Incredible experience with an amusing soundtrack! You're taken right into a volcano. The crew and office staff were communicative and great to deal with.

Best way to see the national park - The tour was great. It’s the fourth time we are doing a helicopter ride somewhere and therefore start to compare the different experiences we had. The operator was very professional, the pilot/guide clearly very experienced and the communication with us (bad weather, potential to stop the tour after a few minutes) was done really well. Fortunately did the weather get better and we did the flight. Great way to view the volcano national park.

Must do Safari - Breathtaking views of the volcano and magma vents. Once in a lifetime experience. I will do it again next time I visit the Big Island.

MUST DO IN HILO! - Outstanding excursion from start to finish! The office staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, and Micah was an excellent pilot. The volcano tour was informative, enjoyable and I felt safe the entire time. Thankfully the weather was good, and we saw a lot in the allotted time. I would go again without hesitation! If they had swag I would have purchased it to advertise for them! Oh yeah - Micah's musical selections were fantastic - I regret not asking for his playlist!

Unfortunate trip - It was very cloudy and raining all the way. Pilot couldn’t fly above a volcano. I know it’s not their fault the weather was bad but they should just cancel it. It was too much money I spent on this trip.

It was pretty cramped in... - It was pretty cramped in the helicopter, also the pilot should talk more about the volcano, makes it more interesting instead of just soft music that puts you to sleep all in all it was cool but still too pricey for the experience

Ended in a low - Pilot Micah was disengaged, he was filling in for someone so had very little insight and lot of “I don’t know” and I am not sure when people asked questions. total flight time was less than 45 min not 55 mins as tour mentioned. Also when taking pics at end the ladies on ground crew were rude and impatient. You offered to take pictures! Go with Blue Hawaiin next time as my friends did and had an amazing experience!
