After hearing this was the must do activity on Kauai we signed up. I know we are in the minority, but we did not enjoy our helicopter tour. My husband spent a majority of the trip very sick due to motion sickness (though he had never been airsick before – a helicopter is a very different experience). I found our pilot a bit sarcastic and not exactly friendly. He also could have offered more explanations of what we were seeing. Though the view is amazing, fear detracted from my enjoyment. My advice, this tour is not for the faint of heart. I am sure that for those braver than me the tour would be amazing. The woman coming off the helicopter as we were loading on was asked how the tour was. She responded “terrifying”. At least I know I am not the only wimp out there! For more than the price of interisland air fare we should have skipped this and done a whirlwind trip of another island.
