Highlight of our trip!
Ron_R, May 2024
What a great experience! Lucien was a great pilot and we had a smooth ride despite winds.Turner his co-pilot pointed out all the highlights. Would highly recommend this tour!
Amazing!!!!! Would recommend over and over!
JESSICA_B, May 2024
Our pilot tour guide was excellent. He was informative of what we were seeing. He explained any turbulence that might occur. We felt safe during the tour with the doors off. There is a safety briefing video before hand that was helpful and reassuring. There is a whole team of people that prepare you for the trip ensuring all safety measures are taken. The pilot also does a final safety check. We had excellent service on this excursion. The pilot was friendly. The other grounds crew (unsure exact title) offered to take pictures of us in front of the helicopter. Absolutely amazing experience. 100% recommend the doors off tour. Got amazing pictures. The whole thing is recorded in the cabin and outside, then you have a chance to purchase it at the end which was awesome.

We took a morning flight in the helicopter. It was such a great time! Our pilot was so knowledgeable of the island. He made sure to point our areas of interest and made sure everyone was able to get a good view. Seeing Oahu from the air was amazing. I would definitely recommend Rainbow Helicopters for a great experience.
Great flight
Rachel_S, Apr 2024
Freddy was a wonderful pilot, especially with someone who is afraid of heights and was scared. The 60 min ride was great. We went all around Oahu.
Do it !

Amazing flight with JoJo. So beautiful and informative! The doors off is for sure the way to go! We had never been in a helicopter and we were blown away with how smooth JoJo was able to make our ride!!!!
Best Ever
Kira_F, Apr 2024
This was our first time doing something like this and it was the Best. Gave us so much informations about the islands
Better than any other excursion!
Jayme_B, Apr 2024
We had the best time! Flying around the island was fabulous. You see the island so quickly and up close. Doors off is ALWAYS the way to go; incredible. We got so lucky and saw whales from the helicopter, even when we were unable to see them from a whale watching tour. This was our families favorite excursion, it even beat out swimming with the dolphins as we did both. Every age loved the tour from 7 to teens to 44.
Must do experience
kishen_p, Apr 2024

Awesome experience
Dan_V, Apr 2024

Excellent Tour - Doors Off
Andrea_H, Apr 2024
Michael was our pilot for the tour. He did an excellent job showing us all the landmarks and making sure we saw everything. I scheduled this tour as a surprise for my teenaged son (graduation gift). It delivered! We utilized the doors off option of the tour and sat on the ocean side of the helicopter. We didn't see as much of the city landscape but that was ok with us as we wanted to see the ocean views. If you really want to see the city landscape, you may have to ask to sit on the left side of the helicopter. Our tour was excellent! Thank you so much!
Absolutely an amazing...
Javier_V, Mar 2024
Absolutely an amazing experience, thank you Joel for a top tier never forget experience. Much appreciated
A sight to see but bundle up!
Beeonca_B, Mar 2024
The pilot was very informative and showed us a great time on our ride! The island of Oahu was absolutely beautiful and I loved flying over Pearl Harbor and getting a close up of a waterfall! WARNING!!! It’s really windy so please make sure you bundle up. In addition, ladies tie your hair up tight and maybe even wear a scarf to hold it down. My lose strands were smacking me in the face and it made it hard to see. However, I loved this experience!
Mary_C, Mar 2024
The sites were beautiful! And the staff were friendly and helpful couldn’t have asked for better. But our pilot gave the impression he didn’t want to be at work that day.
Amazing experience
Ashley_L, Mar 2024
This is definitely something you want to do! Joel, our pilot was very knowledgeable about the island.
Glad I went!!
monica_s, Mar 2024
Im afraid of heights so I weary and I have to say I had zero fear. Our pilot was amazing and it was a smooth ride around the island…. Highly recommended!!
Ruth_S, Mar 2024
The helicopter ride around Oahu early in my vacation was the best way to view the landscape of the island! It gave me a great perspective of how Pearl Harbor was attacked prior to visiting the naval base. The pilot, Emma, provided lots of information and pointed out significant areas in Oahu. Excellent trip!
