Kualoa was the first stop on our vacation to Oahu. We booked the catamaran cruise around the bay. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. A local who'd also lived in other parts of the country, so well rounded. We used our Go Oahu card with no problem. You get to cross the fish pond on the way to... More

We were on the movie site tour with my father in law who's in a wheelchair. Our tour guide Michellena was awesome! She was very knowledgeable about the movies filmed and the world War 2 history. She was able to answer all our questions and was wonderful with caring for Dad. The area was amazingly beautiful

This was our second day at Kualoa Ranch, using the Go Oahu card. We were on the morning tour, so the temperature wasnt too warm yet. The tour starts with a bus transfer to a pier that is about 1-2 miles away. Everyone boards a boat that takes you across the water to an island. A short walk across the... More

I really wanted to do a zip line in Hawaii mainly because of the fantastic scenery, I couldn't have picked a more perfect place to do so. Driving to this place we were amazed at the size of the ranch and all the activities on offer. We booked the zip line online and drove ourselves but I understand that they... More

So much to do at Kualoa ranch from horse riding zipline ATV tour and movie sites. You will need a day to fit it all in. But so worth it the movie sites you get to see and we all know what movies they are. So much fun. Lunch in the restaurant was very nice had the buffet.

Do it! We were shown the filming sites of LOST, 50 First Dates, Hawaii Five - 0 , Jurassic Park, World, etc! It was fun, informative and Stephanie is an amazing guide. We even got to act out scenes from the movies! She would show us the movie part on the screen of our air-conditioned bus and then show us... More

Even if just for the scenery, this is a must. Being in the Ka'a'awa Valley was awesome and priceless. Bonus features included filming locations of films such as Jurassic Park, Pearl Harbour, and other popular movies. ATV adventure included going through streams, potholes, and paths totally inaccessible by regular tourists. Even beginners can manage the ATV.

My wife and I considered the ATV tour. However, with the spotty rain the day before, we decided on the premiere movie tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, energetic, and approachable. Make sure you have plenty of space on your camera for pictures. The tour was beautiful.

We had such a great time on this tour. Our tour guide (Thomas, I believe?) was fantastic. Very informative and funny. Riding the ATV was fun. It was a first for me but I got the hang of it quickly (which means pretty much anyone can do it). You make some stops of historical history and also stops that are... More

My family recently took the Movie sites tour at Kualoa Ranch. Our tour guide/driver was Stephanie, and she was hilarious and knowledgeable. The tour is 90 minutes in length and has a number of stops. The bunker stop is interesting because of its history, but also because of some of the TV shows that were filmed here, including Hawaii 5-0.... More
