Fantastic day! Picked up on time and very well organised. We got to see a lot more of Oahu on our way to the ranch. We rode the AVT's and this was so much fun. We saw where they filmed many movies, and the lunch was so fresh and very welcoming after a busy morning. There is also a cafe there so you can buy your own lunch if you dont want to have the buffet. It was a fun day and there are so many activities you can choose from.
Highly recommend, great day...great people and a must Hawaiian destination!

Great fun! The history of the ranch early, during the war, films, and just the islands natural beauty is fabulous! The tours we went on we great fun, and lunch was done very well. Truly enjoyed our time at the ranch.
This place is heaven on earth. We did ATV, Movie Tour and Jungle Tour. Each one showed different parts of the ranch. The food buffet was good and the guides were all excellent. This is a must see!
All the staff were friendly, the food was delicious, the activities were really fun and I learnt a lot about the history as well.
This was the best excursion that we have ever done! We've been to Oahu several times, but have never had as much fan as we did on this day! The ATV's were awesome!! It was well worth the price, a real deal!! Thanks!
guides were well versed in local knowledge---totally different personalities with each guide, gave great nuances to info that we may have heard before------we had a blast and you will too-----
This was amazing! The Ranch was magnificent in every way. The views, tours, food and staff. It was a full-of-fun marvelous day DON'T MISS IT!
The beauty of the ranch and then the wonderful staff made this a wonderful day. The guides were friendly and really knew the area. I think my favorite was the jungle expedition. The view from the top when we got off and hiked a little was absolutely beautiful!

When you arrive on the bus, the guide gets everyone to tick the activities they would like to do on the day on a itinerary sheet. When you arrive at the ranch, this sheet is given to the office where they work out your customized time schedule for the day. We participated in the Ocean Catamaran, ATV and Movie Set tours. All 3 were well paced, had informative guides/instructions provided and overall it was a fantastic day. Lunch was delicious in particular the terriyaki beef ribs! and the coach bus was very efficient and comfortable.
It was the best tour we had during our visit. Would do it again.
We had a great day at the Ranch - so much to see and do! Will have to go back on another trip to do what we could not fit in. Beautiful scenery and very friendly/informative Guides. Particularly enjoyed the Valley Tour which shows you the locations used for many movies shot at the Ranch.
Awesome!! Horseback riding, Valley tour, and Mountain tour. Very fun time.
Even though it was raining our tour guide was wonderful. I wish we had more time for the Dole plantation as didn't really get to see much, as time was limited. Would definitely recommend this tour!
Great tour and beautiful scenery! Well worth it, and the buffett lunch was yummy also.
My husband and I recently visited the ranch for our first time. We chose to do the valley movie tour, the horseback ride, and the jungle expedition. I must say, it was all fun and fantastic!
The guide for our valley tour was very entertaining. He made our group laugh a bunch too. On that tour we saw props and learned out famous movies that were shot in Kualoa. We rode around on a bus, stopping a few times to visit the old military remains and to get pictures of the beautiful mountains.
When it came time for the horseback ride, I was a bit nervous to be on a horse for my first time. Luckily, two of our instructors stayed with us on the entire trail. I had times when I did not feel so confident with my horse, but the lady instructors were always checking and saying how great of a job I was doing. I felt they were very professional, calm, and friendly. What a great ride!
As for our last tour, we had a guide named Kaleo. He was very charming and knowledgable about the history of Hawai'i and the ranch. His driving was amazing. I've been on a jungle tour similar to this before. While that had made me nauseoushis, his careful driving did not. We went up to some higher areas of the ranch and saw some lovely views of the valley, ocean, and islands nearby.
As for lunch, you can purchase fresh food from the various cattle, fish, and vegetables they raise and grow on the ranch. The cafeteria has many yummy options. We were on a buffet plan and had our meal in separate building. While the buffet wasn't large, it was plenty delicious.
If you want to spend part of your day having fun among the lush green mountains, take this tour. A visit to Kualoa Ranch has activities that are certainly more fun than boring sit as you see tours.
The Ranch adventure was awesome. The movie tour was fun, Especially the pictures we took for Jurassic Park. The horseback riding was a great experience and the girl who was our guide was very patient with my inexperience at getting Hollywood, my horse, to do what he was suppose to do. He kept wanting to eat the grass. After awhile he and I got comfortable with each other. The lunch was good. Then we went on the catamaran which is a really big boat, and we saw turtles in the water. The guy James, that was our guide, was very friendly and gave us a lot of information. I highly recommend this tour
The staff are so friendly and knowledgable. A well organised tourist attraction that does Hawaii proud.
Great place to visit! Majestic scenery. Would recommend it to everyone as there is somethingactivities for everyone. Guides and staff were all great.
