    Everything was absolutely amazing! All of the staff was very professional and also easy to be around. Having just the two of us behind the pilot and no doors was an amazing experience! I did a helicopter tour in Kauai several years ago and was stuck in a middle seat and couldn't see very well out of the window. On this tour, with no door, you will look straight out and down. It is a little windy and definitely colder than an enclosed helicopter but the spectacular views more than compensated. Our pilot was fantastic and adjusted speed and altitude to give us everything that we wanted to see. Flying into the canyons along the Napali coast was absolutely breathtaking!

    We had a good time observing the unreal beauty of Kauai from our airplane window with Air Ventures. The pilot was engaging, cracked some jokes, and did a great job explaining protocol and what we were seeing. We learned some fun facts along the way and even saw two humpback whales off the Na Pali coast. We only wish the plane circled back to spend some more time flying along Na Pali.

    We couldn’t decide between Smith’s Family Luau and Luau Kalamaku, so we did both!

    Luau Kalamaku was a bit larger venue; stage is center of dining area; the train tour is optional for an additional fee; there was a crafts area for buying stuff; and the background band was a bit loud.

    In regards to the food, The Teriyaki chicken was okay, and unfortunately was the star of an unspectacular culinary show. The “Seasonal fish” (mahi), Kailua pork, and salmon were all lack luster.

    I wasn’t a big fan of the dancers performing during dinner as I don’t think folks were able to appreciate them. They were treated as an accessory, rather than a demonstration of cultural dance. The band busted out “Sweet Caroline” for some random pandering reason.

    The show took place in the center of the dinner area and had more of a storyline than the demonstrations of cultural dance from Smith’s. Overall, it seemed like the dancers / performers were more talented and the production was at a higher level than Smiths. With that said, we thought Smiths was better in all other aspects: food, ambiance, musical talent, drinks, imu ceremony, tram ride (included), and overall experience.

    If you’re looking for the best show, I think it’s Luau Kalamaku; however, if food and other aspects of the experience are more important to you, I think Smith’s is best. In the end, you can’t go wrong with either!

    Steve was an excellent pilot and guide with 30+ years experience who gave us so much inside information and took us by hidden island gems. This was worth every penny!

    Our waterfall tour was much more than expected. From beaches to mountains, with great information provided by our pilot (Max). The canyons, waterfalls, mountain streams, all beautiful. The flight into and out of the cone of the ancient volcano was awe inspiring.

    Kelly has a lot of great information if you’re new to the island! She let us know the best beaches, areas to enter, where to eat, and parking information. The snorkeling adventure was super fun and while the sea scooters battery life doesn’t last super long, we were able to take them to 2 beaches and zoom around. Go visit Kelly!

    OK. SO, in Vietnam, 10 soldiers on a Huey, invariably one guy would throw up, and it became contagious. It happened here, but I never noticed. I was on the red helicopter, pilot from Oregon. I thought it was smooth and beautiful, well guided. Good weather. If you have stomach, guy off airport, Harter, does open door, 65 minutes, this at airport about 50, once in lifetime, so I am satisfied. It's your vacation.

    We explored parts of Kauai we had not known existed.
    Our tour guide is named Coco . She earned a place in my heart.
    She is Coco Chanel to me: Timeless and beautiful.
    We had a blast with our fellow travelers as well.
    Just perfect.

    We dragged our feet on booking a helicopter tour because of the variability of winter weather in Kauai despite having been told repeatedly that this was *the* way to experience the island.
    We found ourselves with an unexpectedly nice day and made some calls - no, all the helicopter tours were booked. But a private airplane tour WAS available midday and we jumped on the opportunity.
    George was our pilot and he’s been flying for several years. He was friendly and wildly informative and gave us a scenic tour that felt exclusive and impossibly perfect. We circled the island, dipped into Waimea Canyon for waterfalls and swung into coastlines. We even caught a full rainbow over the ocean!
    He mentioned that his airplane tours are often overlooked as helicopter experiences perhaps get more press or are more widely available but I wouldn’t trade our views or access to the island for anything.
    Yes, as other folks have commented, if you’re sitting in the back, some of your pictures will have the engine in them. But plenty don’t, as my partner can attest to after taking dozens of stellar shots.
    George showed us his favorite spots, gave us exposure to the island that we would never have been able to appreciate from land or by sea and created some lasting memories of Kauai for us.
    Would absolutely repeat again and can’t recommend enough.

    The tour lasted 8 hours and was very informative and a wonderful experience
    John was our tour guide and is extremely knowledgable
    The Waimea Canyon and waterfall were the highlight of the tour with stops at all the viewpoints
    We went to Po’Ipu and saw resting seals on the beach and green turtles which was a bonus
    We were totally impressed with how researched he is and showed a number of movie locations on route including the fish pond which is where the plane flew over in ‘Raiders Of The Lost Ark’
    I can highly recommend this tour and commend John for a most enjoyable and informative experience
    We visited the Kauai Coffee Farm which is the largest Coffee Farm in the USA

    Andrew and the bus driver (Lionie) where terrific. They genuinely loved talking about their island and provided a lot of information. Absolutely loved the tour. When it was discovered our bus’ air conditioning went out they called for another bus even though we had less than two hours left on our tour. This showed that they cared for the comfort of their customers.
