Helicopter tours on the Big Island to Kilauea?

Anyone have any experience (good or bad) to report with any helicopter flightseeing companies on the Big Island? The best prices I've seen so far on a 1-hour trip to Kilauea from Hilo are from Blue Hawaiian and Safari. Blue Hawaiian appears to be well respected; I can't find anything on Safari's reputation though.

Did the tour with Blue Hawiian last Feb. I think all the operators do the video which is OK. We left from Kohala Coast and flew over the saddle. There is a 20 m9iinute stop in Hilo for fuel and then a tour of the north coast. The helicopter is the only way to see the entire impact of Kilauea. It is spectacular.
Personnaly The helicopter tour on Kauai is better if you have done that or have the chance. As I recall, the prices for Blue H and Safari were the same. BH equipment seemed better.
