view was great, but left my ears ringing and aching

The tour itself was great because the island is filled with breathtaking land formation.

However, since the tour operator didn't tell us how to adjust the headphone's volume, I had no idea about how to stop the pilot's extremely loud voice thoroughout the flight. I had to keep wearing the headphone cut to the Cooper's loud rotator.

Ok, but could have been better

This was our second helicopter experience and a bit disappointing because our view from the back seat was limited and it was difficult to take pictures without obstructions in the way. Also, although the pilot was knowledgeable, he seemed to be terribly lacking in enthusiasm, making the presentation somewhat boring. To be fair, our first experience was in a “no doors” helicopter so we were able to enjoy a much better view. In addition, the pilot on our first trip took more time to show the attractions from both sides of the helicopter to ensure that everyone on the helicopter had the opportunity to get a good view of the main attractions. This was not the case with the 2nd trip (taken last week).

Very nice partly cloudy and 75 degrees at check-in at 7:15 am. Seemed to wait forever before getting to the pad around 8... safety talk.. what to do in case... The driver and safety guy... sorry I forgot their names.. were high energy and very comedic.. fun... from there on it was down hill.

We were always really high up... and far away.. ok save once. The pilot was canned and dull... no humor... his favorite sentence was "isn't it beautiful" He must have muttered it a hundred times, so yea, it was beautiful... tell us something we don't know... which he did on 4 or 5 occasions... I did not know it was the 50th anniversary of Elvis' Blue Hawaii... I know dealing with the public and doing the same flight and talk 7-9 times a day is going to get boring... but geez.. next time DON'T SAY ANYTHING!
