The two hours we spent in he air with our very competent flyer were indescribable. It was more than we could have dreamed of. At times the pilot was difficult to understand but the breathtaking scenery more than made up for that.

William Hackney
Our Circle tour with Paradise Helicopters was a real delight. Our pilot (Kogi) was knowledgeable, funny and so very accommodating. Everyone got to have a look at the features being pointed out and we were able to get some amazing photos. Weather could have been a factor, but on this day wasn't, so we enjoyed a very nice tour.

Daniel Nutter
GREAT! The sites were awesome and we were lucky enough to see active lava! Plenty of window space but not a lot of leg room. If you are a big guy get the co pilot seat or suffer in silence! Pilot did a super job of making sure we all got to see the sights and always felt safe.

Jon Jiménez
It was a great and very enjoyable experience. I would do it again for sure. Thank you so much.
