This is surely a great tour, my fiance and I did it and we were so happy to experience the Big Island from above. We saw the entire island, volcanos, waterfall and forests in the same tour. We recommend this to all people visiting Hawaii.

Big Island Spectacular tour is truly spectacular!!!. We loved every part of this experience, the thrill of flying on a helicopter can only be overshadowed by the wonderful sight from above, beautiful coastline, beautiful water cascades, and the impressive volcano made this tour unforgettable.
