Bonnie Williams
This was the most fun activity on our trip! We were picked up and taken to the airport by a very personable gentleman (sorry forgot his name) who has been with the company for years. He arranged for a Cessna ride for just the. 2 of us with a great pilot- I believe his name is Kevin. We had a smooth ride in beautiful weather with him pointing out the gorgeous sites- Hanalei, the Napoli coast, many waterfalls amidst lush foliage. It was fun to have Julia Roberts' home pointed out to us:) The entire flying experience was unique, fun and we always felt that we were in capable hands! Thank you! We will be sure to fly again with Tom's Barefoot Tours!



Wenda Freedman
Fantastic from beginning to end. Was picked up by close to ship and returned. Sat next to the pilot on a 6 passenger plane and enjoyed wonderful flight over Kawaii. This was an amazing experience and handled very professionally. Josh is a great pilot and provided many details.



Wenda Freedman
Was very happy with my dealings with this company who arranged for me to fly in a 6 seater plane on Kauai in May, 2016. Was picked up and safely returned near my ship. The flying experience was exciting and the highlight of my trip. The pilot Josh instilled great confidence.



Susan Menchaca
I was initially upset because the amount on my confirmation notice, was higher than the quoted price. However, my card was only charged the quoted amount. We had a very nice flight, and our pilot was informative, friendly and fun!! It was quite enjoyable.



Sally Cook
We highly recommend this ride. We were in a 6 passenger plane and the views were
fantastic. It's your own fault if you don't enjo the ride! Less expensive then
helicopter and slower so you see more.

6 of us:
#1 We had a great experience on Air Adventures. We are grateful that they were able to accommodate all 6 of us on one flight.
#2 We really liked our pilot Eric. He was very professional and knowledgable about the island. He would always make sure that the people on both sides of the plane could see everything that he was talking about. Very smooth flight . Had a great experience and would highly recommend.
#3 The airplane ride was great. Over an hour of endless scenery. pilot was great
#4 Trip was good..pilot was great
#5 loved everything about it. AirVenture people were very accomodating and made sure we got to see everything on the island. Scenery was beautiful to see from the sky. Pilot was wonderful and provided a commentary that was informative and humorous. High praise. well done. Thanks Tom barefoot for offering and coordinating this for all of us.
#6 The Wings Over Kauai Tour was fabulous!! I had a great experience with our very knowledgeable pilot narrating all the way though the flight. He was also very professional and personable. The weather was perfect and I was able to enjoy some truly magnificent views of the island. This tour is definitely a "must do" when in Kauai. Loved it!!



Debbie Jones
This was a great experience. There is no better way to see the beauty of Kauaii than from the air. Pickup was on time and they took pictures with our cameras before we left. I had never been in a small plane before, but it was a fantastic experience for me. We each had a window, so we could see and take pictures easily. The pilot was very friendly and knowledgeable. He also was very flexible. When we saw a pod of whales breaching, he diverted a little and circled the whales so we could watch them. That was an added plus. My sister, unfortunately, became air sick because of the turbulence off the coast (not the fault of the pilot), but he was very solicitous, making sure she was as comfortable as possible until we returned to the airport. The entire staff and crew were wonderful, doing their best to alleviate her sickness and embarrassment. I would recommend this excursion to anyone.




K C
A GREAT tour if you want an overview of the entire island. Kevin, the pilot, was an excellent guide - knowledgeable and entertaining. His piloting skills were amazing and we were able to get some great photos. Really appreciated learning about the history of the different parts of the island; there was so much information packed into one hour!



Terri Sandoval
The air tour was the highlight of our vacation...very comfortable with large windows the pilot flew over all the beautiful spots you can not see by car...highly recommend...
