Stefan was a wonderful pilot and tour guide for our flight around the island. He made us feel safe and secure on our “doors off” adventure. We would highly recommend this tour!

Stefan and his team were fantastic! From the pre-flight stuff, to safety checks, questions, everything was covered. Stefan took us everywhere around the island and ocean to find dolphins. He provided insights everywhere we went. He had music playing for each part of the island we went to. It is incredible seeing the island from a helicopter. Definitely recommend him and his team if you are interested in doing a helicopter tour. Will not disappoint. Thank you Stefan!

Merece la pena recorrer la isla volando. El trato fue muy bueno y familiar. Una experiencia fantástica. Me sentí segura en todo momento y nada mareada. A mi hijo le encantó. Volamos con las puertas abiertas y no da ninguna inseguridad. Te van explicado en inglés las curiosidades de la isla...Resumiendo una maravillosa experiencia

This is an amazing experience. If your going to take a helicopter tour, this is the company to do it with. It might be a few bucks more than a larger outfit but its private and personable and well, well worth it. Stefan was our pilot and made sure we got to see the absolute best of the island. Very knowledgeable and took time to give us the best experience possible. It was an unforgettable experience and a great history lesson of the island. We went doors off and it was very comfortable and smooth. Dont hesitate to book with these guys!

What an incredible experience!! Our pilot was personable, knowledgeable and professional. We saw so much during our flight including sea creatures (which included the thrilling spotting of a giant Manta Ray, dolphins and sea turtles), a Memorial sight, the Rainbow Warriors Stadium, and the view of the massive city! It was an amazing experience of a lifetime ~we highly recommend!!!

EPIC.We looked at MANY companies before booking, and this one had the best reviews; now we know why.This company is AWESOME.Ryan picked us up and briefed us, and Stefan was our amazing pilot and guide.This experience was our favorite activity on our Oahu adventure and was an incredible way to see the island.We chose the doors off option and truly feel it was the best for this experience! We felt safe and secure throughout the entire flight.Seeing the sea turtles swimming in the bay, flying across a busy Waikiki and above Diamond Head and Koko Head, seeing Makapuu Point and lighthouse, Waimanalo Beach, being in the presence of the Sacred Falls (truly EPIC), the INCREDIBLE Kualoa Ranch and the Koolau Range, the beauty of the north shore, seeing the dole plantation from above was impressive and seeing Pearl Harbor from the air was an experience.The best part of this private tour is that it wasn’t much more expensive than booking a group tour.Our justification on going this private route was that, to pay this much money and be potentially stuck in a back seat squished between strangers would not have given the same experience.With this company, on this private tour, we were just the 2 of us, both able to sit left (front and back), both able to have doors off and both getting perfect unobstructed views of amazing Oahu.If you’ve been reading reviews, narrowing your searches on companies as we did, or if this is the first review you read, stop your search now and book with Ryan or Stefan.It’s the best choice you’ll make for a truly remarkable experience.We suggest to book the private 60 minute tour with doors off ;)Thank you Ryan and Stefan!Stefan, your guidance, suggestions, humour and playlist! made this experience for us, and we will remember it always.Mahalo 🌺

This was hands down the most beautiful and overstimulating (in a good way) experience I’ve ever had in my life. Seeing the island from that vantage point was other worldly. Ryan was a fantastic guide. Professional, informed, and well humored, he made the tour comfortable for what could be a nerve racking experience for a first time flyer. Highly Recommend!

My wife gave me a helicopter tour for our anniversary, and it was an experience I will never forget. From high above, I beheld the majestic beauty of the Koko Head and Diamond Head mountains, and the sight was simply breathtaking. The tour provided by Honolulu Helicopter Tours was outstanding. Our pilot, Alex, was not only skilled and knowledgeable but also made the entire journey enjoyable with his friendly demeanor and informative commentary. The helicopter ride was smooth and comfortable, allowing for uninterrupted views of the stunning landscape below. I am immensely grateful for this unforgettable adventure and would highly recommend Honolulu Helicopter Tours to anyone seeking a remarkable aerial tour of Honolulu. Thank you for an incredible experience!

We did a helicopter tour with Honolulu Helicopter with the doors off. The views were breathtaking, we got some really great pictures from above. It was a little scary at first with the wind but we really enjoyed our 60 minute tour with them. Alex was our pilot and was super friendly and kept us all safe. We also met the owner Ryan and the rest of the crew who were all kind. I definitely would recommend this crew for your helicopter experience. 🚁🌺🍍

Imagine flying into the Honolulu airport, the Top Gun theme playing through your headset as the last light of day oozes like honey in golden rivers down the Wai’anae mountain range. Can this really be your life, you ask yourself with a slight pinch. Your skin is prickly with goose pimples - partly from the cooler air above and speed of the helicopter, and partly from the thrill of the ride. A thousand moments of beauty and excitement now flood your mind with what will become indelible memories to last a lifetime. This is no imagination, this is the experience that is Honolulu Heli.

What an amazing experience!!
I have been on a few helicopter rides on the other Hawaiian islands in the past, and they were very good. But this one was so much more exciting! I have been living in Hawai’i for 15 years and I still discover how much more there is to see in Oahu. And our pilot Alex was the best.
An absolute must do! Can’t wait to actually do it again!

Alex with Honolulu Helicopter is amazing! He was so calming and knowledgeable. He continuously reassured me I was safe and in good hands. He also offered to play my favorite music of choice. We chased rainbows and saw a few waterfalls as we circled around the entire island of Oahu. I was fortunate enough to fly straight through a 360 degree double rainbow! What an amazing sight! I have lived on Oahu for almost 12 years and saw things I cannot see from land. This helicopter ride was worth every penny! Now that I trust Alex's pilot skills, I can highly recommend him. What are you waiting for? Call and book with Alex today! Do not leave Oahu without taking this tour! I cannot wait to do it again!
