My daughter booked a day trip at Kualoa Secret Island last Friday March 24th. It's fifteen minutes away from Kualoa ranch where you will ride their bus from the ranch and then a service boat will bring you there. You can just stay there for two and a half hours and enjoy the beautiful area of the beach. There's a... More

We used our Oahu go card to enjoy this venue. It exceeded our expectations. Did the movie and ranch tour. The ranch is amazing with all of the activities that you can do. This tour was a great overview of everything they do. Our guide(I wish I could remember her name) was awesome. She engaged with each one of us... More

My husband and I did the 2 hour ATV tour. Neither of us have never been on an ATV before so weren't sure what to expect. You watch a short video on how to operate the ATV and the rules and regulations. We then got our helmets (loved the fact that they offer you a hair protector to wear under... More

Our guide Kaleo was great, and my family really enjoyed the beauty of this ranch. Along with Pearl Harbor and Diamond Head, it was the highlight of our trip.

We went horseback riding for our Honeymoon. The views are AMAZING and not to be missed! One bit of advice that seems obvious, no matter what the temp or weather is; if you go horseback-riding-WEAR pants or capris. I wore SHORT shorts like a dummy and it was very uncomfortable. I brought yoga pants to change into but I was... More

The zip-lining at Kualoa was by far our favorite excursion that we did during our stay in Oahu. The reason why we decided to go with Kualoa as opposed to another company was because it was highly recommended by the staff at our hotel in Waikiki. It was fairly easily to book the reservation online, the directions regarding checking in... More

Beautiful location and included the movie sites as well. Equipment was in excellent condition and route was easy enough for this novice (after I ran off the trail twice:-)

This was our 1st time zip lining and our guides made us feel so comfortable. It was pretty expensive, the pictures more so, but it was a fun trip.

I can't imagine visiting this beautiful privately owned ranch and not having a fabulous time. So many great activities offered it was hard to choose for our 1 day visit. My husband and I did the Jungle Tour in the morning, had the delicious buffet lunch, then went zip-lining for the afternoon. Zip-lining over this beautiful valley couldn't have been... More
