We did the 45 minutes ride, the views are AMAZING in my opinion, the highlight was the view of the mountains where the Jurassic Park movie was filmed.

On our flight, they accommodate 6 people including my husband and I. The front seats next to the pilot even though they have (no open doors) are a great option.

The seats on the back left side, have a little "better" view (in the beginning) of the flight when they are heading to the mountains since the right side passengers are facing the ocean horizon.

This is a splurge activity but is an exciting one to do if you can afford it. My husband used his military discount wish save us some money but they have the most beautiful helicopters on the island.

TIPS: for my IG ladies. The helicopter's colors are beautiful, I guess you want some good pictures, therefore, Used a ponytail and hair lot of hair spray because otherwise, you are going to look like lion king in all your photos. :)

Wear a light jacket/sporty cute outfit ( but u will be wearing a blue hoodie they will provide if you don't bring your own, also you will be wearing a yellow belt pouch that is your lifejacket)

If you are seating in the back next to the open door you will be asked to wear black goggles to protect your eyes.

We had a fantastic flight. Our pilot was Oliver and he was attentive to the safety and care of all of the passengers. I feel like we got to see the entire island from the most spectacular observation point. If we ever make it back to Oahu, we will definately spend time with this company again.

The views were spectacular, checked off an item from the bucket list :) Oliver was an excellent guide! Especially loved the north and east parts of the island. Hidden fall was indeed the highlight of the tour. Overall, it was fascinating to see the waves, mountain range, and famous touristy spots from up and above.

Couple notes to consider:
1) I reserved DOOR ON and was seated in the front row with the pilot. However, the back seat was DOOR OFF. It came as a bit of a surprise that they'd put DOOR ON and OFF people on the same helicopter. The seat was quite tight up front for three people including the pilot, especially when the helicopter was turning side to side.
2) I felt nauseous/dizzy towards the last 10 minutes of the flight. It could've been the weather causing more turbulence (there was a storm the day before), and also the fact that I usually don't do well with noise-cancelling headphones. But I would've felt 30 minute was enough!

This is by far the most insanely beautiful and fun thing we have ever done! We couldn't have asked for better weather and our pilot, Tobey was great. It is a little pricey but you won't regret making the splurge. Highly, highly recommend!

Amazing tour of the island. Riley was great!
I highly recommend the “doors off” tour as many other reviewers recommended.
Thank you for a wonderful experience! My mom and I will definitely recommend Rainbow to everyone we know!

This tour was recommended as their best offering; and it was a great recommendation! We opted for doors off, and lifted off at 10:45 am. Toby was our pilot, and he provided an exemplary explanation of both the history and details of what we were observing. The flight was both exciting as well as smooth sailing. Nothing more beautiful than sailing over a gorgeous island and sight seeing from the sky. Would highly recommend both this Rainbow Helicopter tour as well as Toby as the pilot and guide.

We had a group of 7 accommodated on multiple helicopters for an island tour of Oahu. We chose to schedule this for the final day of our trip so we would be able to see form the air all of the places we had been during our stay. The staff of Novictor was very professional and knowledgable. Bastian was our pilot and did a terrific job telling us all about what we were seeing as we flew overhead. We chose to have the doors off, which at first was a little scary, but then we were really glad we chose to do so. We would recommend this tour to anyone considering it.

Aloha Shannon! Thank you so much for choosing Novictor and for leaving us this review. We really appreciate it and we just love hearing that our guests are happy!!! I'm glad you were brave and chose to have your doors off. It's so exhilarating! I will let Bastian know about this review, so thank you for mentioning it. Aloha and we hope to see you next time you are on Oahu.

Larry picked us up from our hotel in Waikiki and explained a bunch of hidden gems to eat at off the boardwalk and some places to check out like the Bishop Museum. Much more than I expected from our morning driver. Jessica and Carlos were very personable and helped answer all of our questions. We did the doors off experience because we were feeling adventurous and got some amazing pictures. Bastian was our pilot and was absolutely fantastic. From his explanations to decisions for safety from some nearby rains/cloud. I was grateful that the company emailed us beforehand to let us know that we should dress a little warmer because of our option of doors off. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip and would easily recommend it. Some notes: we couldn't sit next to each other so the helicopter was balanced and so we'd both get the best views. We were with another couple and they had a longer flight tour so we waited for them in the lobby before we were brought back to our same hotel. Lobby has water and coffee.

Spectacular views! Doors off is the way to go even though it seems terrifying. They give you a pouch for your camera so you can take photos and videos without fear of dropping it. Definitely put your hair up in as tight a ponytail or bun you can, very windy. I did this with my 12 year old and he sat in front with the pilot due to weight distribution.

Incredible experience to see the island from above and many spectacular views you’ll never see any other way! From hidden waterfalls to whale breaches and a Birds Eye view of Pearl Harbor. Too many things to list!! Impressive service - would totally recommend. Did doors on front and off in back - perfect option for everyone!!
