    Awesome!!!



    A. Arones
    Awesome!!! Steve the pilot was great. Very smooth flying, great plane with excellent visibility, he took his time for each site so every passenger on each side of the plain will see and photograph everything . Very good narration by him too. Very informative. Took the trip from Maui as a tour of Maui and Big Island. Landed back in Maui. Found that tour through and booked with Tom Big Foot. Very good service, everything was accurate and on time. With an experience I had with them they are deserve 5 stars rating. It's my first time to Hawaii.:)



    Pat Leavell
    This was a fabulous adventure. Our pilot was knowledgeable and made every effort to provide all of us with the best possible views and with the history of the areas we were seeing. I highly recommend this tour to everyone! Way beyond my wildest expectations!

    Gary Robinson
    Fantastic way to see a lot in a short time.



    Janet Podbury
    Fantastic experience!! Saw everything that I hoped to. Great way see islands when short on time. Staff were excellent providing information and were so helpful and thoughtful.



    Sharon Johnson
    I give a 5/5 rating. Darryl - our pilot, was terrific! Ms Mylie was sweet and friendly. The flight, although having some turbulence that cannot be helped, was awesome! We saw lava in the crater, and lava flows down by the sea. It was sobering to see the devastation of past eruptions, but inspiring to see the resiliency of the people on Hawaii to rebuild and continue on with life... Thanks to the crew for the wonderful experience!



    Ann Millette
    It was the highlight of our trip. The pilot was wonderful. Highly recommended



    christine Lewis
    WE loved this tour. It was really nice to see the lava and the lava fields from above. We got lucky and got to see bright orange lava at both sites. It was also really pretty to the site and back seeing the dozens of waterfalls on the coast.



    Cecilia Torres
    My sister and I totally enjoyed our air tour of The Big Island Volcano and Maui. It was money well spent to see the islands from the air. Especially enjoyed the pilot and his stories and descriptions of all that we saw from the air.



    Adrian Collada
    The guys were great! Very smooth and amazing ride, loves the plane. Very
    informative and fun to be with. Would do it all over again if they are my
    pilots
