Kuaola ranch Kimoke’o was our guide again today and he was fantastic. He gave us a lot of information on our way to the Buddhist temple then to kuaola ranch. It’s obvious he has a good rapport with the workers there.

Great tour We really enjoyed our movie tour! Our tour guide was funny and very kind! I will say I was bummed there weren't more LOST stops or it wasn't really talked about. I know it aired 20 years ago but was still hopeful. You can find like 4 things to buy in the gift shop. My main issue was how dirty the bus was. As someone with asthma, allergies, and very sensitive to mold I was very concerned with sitting in this bus. Luckily I had a mask and tried to stick my head out the entire time out the window. Overall we enjoyed the tour. I just wish we would have been able to stop maybe one more time in the valley area. Overall it's a great starter tour. Overall we enjoyed our time at the ranch!

Fun tour if you've seen the movies It was fun seeing the location sites of multiple films. A bit expensive, but everything in Hawaii is expensive.Add a star if you are a huge Jurassic fan.

Movie Tour Scam Place was run down and employees were very rude, not to mention the movie tour is a waste of time. They also ask you get there 45 minutes early for no apparent reason other than to your gift shop which was also run down.Not recommended

Don't take the movie tour The tour was supposed to be the Movie airs tour lasting 90 min. The tour was less than 50 min of movie sites.The tour was in a school bus. Our seats were just ahead of the emergency door so we had no window. There were at least 4 people sitting single in seats. I was sitting in the aisle seat so could see nothing out my side. All of the movie signs were right next to the road so I was unable to see those out the other side. I said something to the driver and was told nothing they could do about it. I think there is. Take those seats out. The driver/guide was very informative and I would recommend her anytime. But I could have sat in a lecture hall and gotten the same tour.While some of the information given was very informative, it had nothing to do with movies. Total tour was 70 min.I had taken this same tour a year ago and had Safari trucks. These were great. The your was great. Very disappointed. Maybe green had taken over

Leave Waikiki area - Great for Families We had the tour guide Sunshine on the Movies tour. We booked transportation from Waikiki. I do wish they had talked or given some type of tour during the drive as other places did. All staff at the ranch were fantastic. The food was good and the gift shop had so many options. We wanted to take an earlier shuttle back to town and they were able to accommodate. Also, we booked this last minute, while we were already there - only 2 days beforehand. I highly recommend for families. Get out of Waikiki area and see the other side of the island. It is far cheaper than some parts of the excursion and you get to see China Man's Hat.

Kualoa Ranch, a great expereince The Kualoa Ranch Hollywood movie site tour was everything adverised and more. THe driver for our bus Loni, was fun, energetic and engaging. She took time to make each of out group comfortable and enjoying the tour. She explaine the history of the ranch, the family who owns the property and the various efforts made to be self reliant and responsible to the beauty of the island. Then there was the interesting information on the various tv and movie sites which had taken place tjhrughout the ranch. There was time to explore on our own and she assisted any and all in taking photo's and videos.

Enjoyed Movie Sites Tour We had a lot of fun on the movie sites tour. I believe our guide was Sunshine and she lived up to her name. She was friendly, upbeat and courteous to all guests. She helped with pictures and gave us a lot of information. I particularly enjoyed the Jurassic park photo she took for us. I would recommend this tour.
