Kyle our pilot very knowledgeable. Made the experience pleasurable. Was nervous had never been in a helicopter
Glorious views
Janet Z, 26-09-2022
Rainbow Helicopters were safe & efficient offering door open or door closed options. We chose doors closed. Our pilot was Corey, who was friendly and knew his stuff of the island. An hours trip was long enough to see all the fabulous sites, greenery of the island, the coral reef and Pearl Harbor. Expensive, but once in a lifetime for some.
Amazing experience!!!
Minda_H, 24-09-2022
It was an amazing experience!!! Seeing the views from the top are amazing, highly recommend this tour. Staff are very friendly.
Just Do It

Highly recommend!
Brandi_B, 21-12-2022
Our pilot was Tobias. He was really knowledgeable and a super nice. Highly recommend flying with the Royal Crown of Oahu!
Great experience!

This was such a fun experience! My husband and I always talked about doing a circle island helicopter ride. The views are spectacular! My only suggestion would be if it’s windy to keep the doors on. We went on a windy day and had the doors off and wished we kept the doors on so we could better enjoy the ride. I definitely recommend Rainbow Helicopters.
Pricey but very well worth it. You wont regret it
Eugene_D, 18-12-2022
It was amazing! I wish we did this first not one of the last things we did. But either way it was great.
We cannot talk good about it enough.
The Royal Oahu is what we had and it was well worth it. Its a once in a lifetime experience.
The staff was very polite, friendly, knowledgeable and very thorough.
This company does an excellent job.
Highly highly recommend everyone going to Oahu to experience this
Great tour, would go again!

A tour to remember!
Michael_H, 09-01-2023
My husband and I are residents of Oahu, and I surprised him with this tour for his birthday and it did not disappoint! The staff was friendly and helpful and even offered to take photos for us. Our pilot Riley was very knowledgeable and made the actual tour fun and interesting. This is a trip you will not forget!
Incredible experience!

It was my first ever helicopter ride and one of the best experiences of my life. Kerry was a great pilot! I was speechless throughout the whole flight. Well worth the money and definately the best way to see the island!
Awesome Experience
Gail_B, 03-01-2023
Enjoyed the whole thing little
Nervous at first, the pilot told me about the turbulence and made sure I would be comfortable with it and if I wasn’t she would bring me back. Awesome experience definitely would do again. Great group of people very friendly and tentative to customers. Thanks for the adventure.
best ever view!
Anastasia_P, 05-02-2023
The best view I could even have on Oahu! An unbelievable experience. The Island is so beautiful. You cant see that from the ground, from the car or been hikes trails.
Great attraction must do !!
KeanuTexeira2023, 25-01-2023
Being able to see most of not all the desired beaches and a bunch more attractions on the island, he was very knowledgeable in everything on the island which helped a lot !

This was an incredible experience. Our pilot, Kerry, gave us amazing views, was friendly and shared a lot of knowledge about the island. Recommend the open door option if you can, definitely worth it!

Tanner_A, 16-09-2022
Definitely fun and adventurous but probably wouldn't do it again. I think it's overpriced for what you get.
