I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. The best thing that we've done in Hawaii! See the most amazing sites that Hawaii has to offer in an hour. Pricey, but overall well worth it

I love your enthusiasm...it's not often that a guest is so emphatic about insisting others take the tour. You want to come work for us in marketing? Seriously, I'm very pleased that you enjoyed your experience so much. It truly is the only way to really get feel for this place...and in less than an hour. Many thanks for your review.

“Awesome experience ”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Our pilot Brody was very informative and our tour was very comfortable.
The choppers were well maintained and roomy.
2 of our children aged 11 and 8 had a wonderful experience.

Hi Steve. Many thanks for taking the time to write your review. You may not think too much about the effect your words may have but I use Trip Advisor myself when I travel and these reviews are very helpful. 'Glad the kids had a good time as well. Cheers.

“Book this company”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Never been in a helicopter before and would do it again in a heartbeat. We are a family of four-kids are 11 and 8. Ask for Brody-truly amazing pilot and guide. Professional and soft spoken-flies this craft smoothly and effectively. Get the video at the end -other than the interference from the rotors the video is worth the money. Took the doors on tour- hidden oahu tour - absolutely spectacular views and commentary.

Aloha Todd. We're jazzed that you and your family had a great time on the Hidden Oahu Tour. I'm especially pleased that the kids enjoyed the tour...they're at that age when video games seem to rule. Nice to get 'em in the air for a real life thrill. Thanks for the nice review.

“Fabulous!!!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

My husband and I decided at the last minute to take a helicopter tour of Oahu and we picked Makani Kai Helicopters. Booking was very easy and accommodating. The tour itself was WONDERFUL!!! with awesome views and our pilot Brody was the BEST!! His narration of everything we were seeing was very informative and interesting...he also made sure that both sides were able to see the same gorgeous views. I recommend their tours to anyone and everyone.

Alooooha Jimmy. Those nerves are a natural instinct and you're not alone. We just wish more folks had the courage you did to face those jitters and take a helicopter tour. As you discovered, by not allowing your fears to dictate your life, you were rewarded with an experience unlike any other. Thanks for your comments.
