We didn't originally book with Iolani as our concierge didn't really know them, but when we arrived at our original company, they had had a fuel spill and couldn't take us. We waited and found out that this company couldn't fly us until 5 hours later. I contacted Rebecca at Iolani who I had trade some emails with initially and she was able to fit my wife, daughter and I into a noon flight. We arrived and found that only one other person would be flying with us for a 2.5 hour fight around the island. We got to the plane, took pictures and prepped the plane. I was not an enthusiastic flyer having never been on such a small plane, but I was put at ease by our pilot, who was very confident and even put me up front in the copilot's seat. it was a great trip, it was a smooth flight. Our pilot was very knowlegeable and had stories about each area and climate zone we flew over. We were able to see where lava was flowing into the ocean, but excessive vog kept us from going too close to the volcanoes. Our flight was longer and cheaper than the other company we were going to use, but we all still had window seats and were able to see and photograph all around the island. I highly recommend the Iolani Air Tour. It was a true highlight our week on the big island.
