Incredible Experience (MUST DO)
Aug 2021 • Couples
An absolute must do. Price is certainly high, but don’t even think about it. Just book it. Doors off was an incredible experience. Sarah was a great guide. Only downside was the hour flew by!!!

A Must Do in Honolulu!
Aug 2021
This was an amazing experience! The views were unreal and we were able to tour the entire island. The process was easy and convenient and the crew all super helpful. We did the doors off experience, making it even better! We would do this again in a heartbeat. The pilot is fun and interactive and very knowledgable about the island. We even went and visited some of the cool places we saw on the tour the following day. You don't see much of the waterfall but that doesn't matter at all because the rest of the views definitely make up for that. I will say, it was a little crammed in the helicopter and we are smaller people. I would recommend this to everyone! A must do!

Unforgettable!
Aug 2021
This was an incredible tour and a highlight of our trip! Highly recommend the private tour with doors off. The staff were welcoming, friendly and professional; we watched a safety video, put our bags in a safe locker, and received free lanyards for our phones. Our pilot, Geoff, was awesome. Super friendly and we felt safe the entire time. My friend was in front and I was in back; it wasn't nearly as unpleasant for me as others have reviewed tbh. My friend had a lot of questions for Geoff and he was a great sport about it and shared a lot of interesting facts about Oahu with us! Oahu is gorgeous but seeing it in a helicopter was something else - just breathtaking, from the coast to the mountains - including a waterfall you can only see by helicopter! - to the dense forests of the northern part of the island, to the extensive farmland and of course Pearl Harbor. 60 minutes went by too fast! Thank you Rainbow Tours for an amazing experience.

Wind tunnel created an unpleasant experience
Went with my mom. We sat in the back two seats with doors off. Was extremely windy to the point where the ride was unpleasant. It was a struggle to keep my headset on and had to cover my mom’s face for almost half the ride. I expected it to be windy but not to this level.

I believe a wind tunnel was created for my mother and I in the backseat. The pilot had doors on and the other front left passenger has doors off. The passenger on the front left did not seem to have the a difficult time like we did in the back.

I did contact Rainbow to let them know as well. I wanted to enjoy this once and a life time experience but unfortunately we did not.

Great views but crammed in like a sardine!!!!!
Jul 2021
My review of Rainbow Helicopter 60 minute tour is a mixed bag. My husband and I went on the tour July 28th. The staff/pilot were friendly and the facilities were clean. The views were beautiful and I recommend the taking a helicopter ride in Oahu for that alone. However, there were two unfortunate issues that I must mention as I hope to be of help to others traveling.

My husband wanted doors on and that is how we made our reservation. What was unclear until boarding, is that there are two sets of doors and we ended up in the front with the pilot (doors on) and the back seats in the helicopter had doors off. This freaked my husband out a little (not a thrill seeker) but he managed okay and just didn't look behind him. I asked when we checked in to confirm doors on and this was not explained whatsoever which was deceiving IMO.

The absolute worst part was we both had to be crammed in like sardines in the front row with the pilot. There was not enough space for both of us so it was VERY uncomfortable. We are average sized adults. I noticed the trip after ours had one adult and one young child seated in the front where we had been seated which is probably fine, but there is not enough space for two adults in the front seat next to the pilot. They told us the seating arrangement on arrival; however, there was no way to know that the seating was inadequate until minutes before take off when we were strapped in the helicopter. I spent the entire flight leaning to my left as I tried not to hit the pilot as a result of the way I was squished in. My back hurt for awhile afterward from the awkward position. It was very unpleasant. As a result, I wouldn't use this company again. We went on a separate helicopter ride in Maui (Blue Hawaiian) where we were both seated in the front with the pilot and there was plenty of space plus the ride was smoother. I wish we'd used them in Oahu as well.

Amazing Helo Tour!
Nicole was so professional and really wanted us to feel comfortable on our tour. She was sure to explain everything we flew over and had a ton of useful information for us. I highly recommend this tour to see all of Oahu and its natural beauty.

Doors off at 1500 feet is the way to see this island!
Great pilot, well maintained aircraft, and clean ground facilities.

Poor customer service
Jul 2021 • Couples
The customer service from Jesse was terrible. He was extremely rude on the phone and the company changed their policies and tried to charge us extra after booking over two months in advance. We ended up cancelling two of the four spots two days before the flight. Then less than 24 hours notice before the flight the company cancelled the other two spots. Horrible experience and I would not recommend them.
