You don't have to be a Hawaii-50 series fanatic to enjoy this remarkable experience, but it helps.
I loved the original Jack Lord series, and know little about the new series apart from the fact that it has some great Aussie lead actors, but I must confess to leaving the tour with a hunger to watch the new detectives at work.
We took this tour as an opportunity to go to parts of the island that are off the beaten tourist track, and for that alone it was well worth while.
What these guys don't know about the minutia and detail of the 50 productions is not worth knowing.
And the bonus of the tour was the begged-for opportunity to purchase a couple of genuine production crew t-shirts literally of the back of the production truck.
My fellow reviewers have heartily endorser this tour, and I am delighted to share their enthusiasm...so don't miss out....Book it, Danno!
The trip was amazing. I am a Five-0 superfan and my husband was along with me on this tour. He has now become even more of the fan because of the tour. It was so entertaining and so informative. The tour gave us insight to the real personalities of the actors. Now when we watch the show we feel so connected to it. They showed us so many of the locations where the filming is actually done, even the official McGarrett household. The owners of the home are so lovely and came out to spend time with us and share some of their special Five-0 stories. We also drove by Chin's house, Kono's house, Grover's house and Danny's house as seen in episodes of the show. There was plenty of time to take pictures at the locations that we did stop at. I loved that before we would arrive at each location, they would play a video clip of a scene so that we better relate to each location and scene. They even provided background history on both the old and new versions of the show. I learned a lot while having a great deal of fun. We even had lunch at LaMariana at the end of the tour and for you regular fans I know you have seen the episodes in which this was filmed.The hosts of the tour are really great friendly people. Of course it would be spectacular if we would have had the opportunity to see some of the filming or even visit the actual studio where inside filming is done or to see some of the actual props/vehicles used in the show. Thanks for showing me a super great time.
Our tour guides were fantastic they had in depth knowledge of the series both new and old, and had some great stories to tell which made the tour extremely interesting I would defiantly recommend this tour to anyone who has watched the series
HIGHLIGHT OF MY VACATION! We even got to skype Cousin Flippa!! The family thay owns the Bayer Estate (McGarretts house) are some of the nicest most welcoming people I have ever met! And their dog is adoriable.
This tour was one of the highlights of our holiday. I am a longstanding fan of the show , following both the original and current series , and whilst my wife watches the show as 'a casual viewer' we both enjoyed it immensely.
The guides have a great knowledge of the show and use interactive video clips for each location to enhance the experience. They also have a wealth of knowledge about the original series and the links with the current series.
We especially enjoyed the visit to 'Diamond Head' , the 'Courthouse' , the 'McGarrett residence ' and residences of the other cast members . All of the houses are 'real' and not part of a studio set.
Try to ensure that your visit includes the McGarrett residence which is used occasionally for other events and may be excluded from the tour. However,the guides will advise you in advance if this is likely and will offer you alternative dates.
Special thanks to our guides who made the whole experience very memorable.
Ami our tour guide made the difference in the tour being fun and entertaining
We loved our Hawaii Five-0 Locations Tour! Amy, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and drove us places we would never have found on our own. She used her I-pad to play scenes from the show for us, then we would see the actual location where it was filmed. How wonderful to visit the location and see how it was used in the show! If you love to watch the TV show, you should really try to take this tour!
Very nice. Tour guide was great....If you get motion sickness, I highly recommend you take lots of motion sickness medicine because you won't want to miss this.
