    That was my first time experience. I was kind of scary to book a helicopter open door tour because of my phobia is height ! :) The tour was just awesome I had a really great time! The views over the ocean and mountains are so beautiful! This tour makes me just speechless in a good way and I want to say thank you guys you made this day a very special and memorable for me ! I didn’t regret and it’s worth every single penny!

    Best Birthday present to myself EVER! I took my mom back to Honolulu for our birthday's as they are both in August and on my actual birthday she talked me into doing a "Doors OFF" helicopter tour of the island and was it ever worth it!! Our pilot was KYLE and he was amazing (after watching our video I realized I was VERY much in his personal space and he never said anything .. just keep telling us all about the sites!!) I was able to get some of the best pictures and see the Hospital I was born in from above .. I mean you can't miss Triple the big Pink hospital :) If you are on the fence about doing this Don't be just DO IT because it is AMAZING & So Worth It!!!!

    The countryside is so beautiful and unique.
    The pilots are v reassuring.

    Make sure you ask for doors on - it’s really windy otherwise!

    Went on our honeymoon to oahu and my husband and I did this helicopter tour . We we're able to see the most beautiful views of Waikiki and the diamond head. 18 mins was the perfect amount of time for this tour. Was truly amazing.

    I had the most amazing experience with Paradise Helicopters today. It was our second to last day staying at Turtle Bay and wanted to do something special. We opted for the 60 min doors off tour and it did not disappoint. Not gonna lie, I was nervous beforehand thinking about it. The second I strapped in, the pilot Josh was an absolute professional and made us feel so comfortable. We got a full tour of Oahu and saw tons of sites including Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head, Waikiki, Dole pineapple fields and more. Josh narrated the entire time and we learned so much about the island. The views were insane and we got amazing pictures and videos on our phones (they gave us a holder that goes around your neck). I can’t rave about this enough and if I could give it 6 stars I would. It really felt like a dream. This is a must do when visiting Oahu and definitely worth the price tag!

    This is a great way to see the island at the beginning of your visit so you can have a preview of where you'd like to go from an awesome perspective! Our pilot, Pavel, did an amazing job, he knows the island and gives great tips on where to go and what to do Based on your preferences

    highlight of our trip to Oahu. We have seen the whole island from above and our pilot told us so many things und stories about the different places. We would highly recommend this to everyone who is visiting Oahu.

    This was my first time flying in a helicopter. We had the first flight out that morning. Our pilot was a lady, Cat, she was the absolute best. What was supposed to be a 30 min flight turned into 1hr 15 min, all due to weather. We didn't make it completely around the island because there was a storm so we turned around and went back. Several times during the flight we circled in the air to avoid rain clouds. Also why we were in the air there was a big plane coming in to land. We circled about 3 times to stay out of the way. Cat handled the helicopter with so much grace. I did not get scared, just a little nervous, but that was because I seen the plane coming toward us. We had did a full circle tour the day before, so we got to see all those things in a different perspective. I have one complaint. The headphones. I could hear the pilot all the but it was very choppy, so when she was pointing out things, I didn't always understand her. Would definitely do it again!

    We booked the 20 minute city by the sea tour. Due to some unfavorable weather conditions it was expanded to 35 minutes and we got to see some inland island sites we would not have seen originally.
    We were supposed to have the doors off experience. About a week before, I received an e-mail stating that the helicopter we were to have would be down for routine maintenance. Because of that, we were offered a doors on experience with a free video of our trip. I had already paid $72.00 for a video, so they said they would give the freeby to my friend. I accepted. Good thing it was doors on as my friend is extremely afraid of heights and did not fare very well.
    Anyway, the trip was amazing from take off to landing. Our pilot, Sarah, was absolutely great. Very personable and knowledgeable about everything she showed us. And, she handled the helicopter like the pro that she is. We had some bumpy crosswinds and she maneuvered that copter like a boss!!!
    After going along Waikiki beach (where she hovered for a moment so we could get some great photos), we went around the back side of Diamond Head and saw some beautiful, lush greenery that we were not supposed to see on the original flight plan.
    I highly recommend Rainbow Helicopters to everyone. All of the staff were just great. If you book, try to get Sarah as your pilot. You won't be disappointed.

    The sunset helicopter tour was quite an amazing experience! All the staff was very polite and punctual. The ride itself was something words cannot describe! Sitting in the sky above Waikiki was insane! Highly recommended to individuals who live for a thrill! You have the option to have the doors on or off and we decided to take them off to take in more of the view and we didn’t regret it! An overall amazing experience and look forward to coming back again for more.

    It’s one of the best prices I ever payed for a private Helicopter-tour for 2 passengers.
    We saw it all! Trust me, there are places inaccessible by jeep or even by foot and the experienced pilot gave us the best!
    Highly recommended. We drove to the airport to make it easier and faster.
    PS
    Door off, of course...

    the whole tour was amazing from the briefing to the landing. Marcus the pilot knows the island and we missed nothing always positioning the helicopter so every one could get the best view
    we highly recommend them as the best way to see the Island as so much is only visible from the air
