Our tour guide was exceptional! Nohea, she was funny, informative, and overall awesome! The sights were amazing, the views breathtaking. I enjoyed every moment.
This was one of the best tours we took in Oahu. Our driver was wonderful, humorous and downright entertaining! Gorgeous views of mountainous Oahu, and fun excursions into various movie sets that were filmed here--Lost, Jumanji, Jurassic Park, etc. Wonderful family friendly tour!!
Fun and the we got see a little bit of the King Kong - Skull Island film being made. The tour was really interesting and the history of the ranch was fascinating. The only thing we regretted was that we didn't sign up for more activities. There are enough separate tours and things to do you can spend most of the day there if you like. We were on a bus tour but you ride ATVs and do other things while you are there.
This was awesome! Tour included military history of the ranch, movie sites, and current endeavors from cows to chocolate. Tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We stopped at the bunker for walk through, including an amazing view, movie/TV posters and props, and even a set leftover from Hawaii 5-0. Later stopped at the JP log for pictures. Driver also slows down to pause at the site of several other movie scenes, marked by signs and sometimes props like Godzilla's footprints or leftover boneyard from Kong:Skull Island. Definitely worth the money for movie lovers! Opportunity after the tour to visit the reasonably priced gift shop and grab lunch from burgers to loco moco.
Great tour. Fascinating greens surrounding us from everywhere. It was amazing to see many movie locations there live. The remaining of Kong and Jurassic park spot were the best. The guide was very nice and friendly. He's very knowledgeable of the place. He knows the history quite well. We had plenty of time to take pictures throughout the tour. I greatly recommend it.
Our driver was very good, he provided a lot of background history of the ranch and all the activities that had taken place there. We stopped at a couple of movies locations for photo ops. Excellent tour really enjoyed. it.
