Great experience but timing is KEY!
, Sep 2019
The whole experience was worth it and beautiful. Now the timing part about showing up. I showed up at 11am and stood in line for 2 mins. To only find out the bus tour left at 11 on the dot. I feel like that isn’t right especially for your normal tourist still trying to navigate though tropical weather(rained hard for acouple minutes going up) that slowed us up. But keep in mind we were only 2 minutes late!!!! They should give at least 5-10 minutes before take off. Bad business if you ask me. But luckily they were able to accommodate another tour 3 hours later. So keep that in mind when traveling because they don’t give a damm ( I had 2 kids with me and one was an infant, you can only imagine how our 3 hours went)
We've been visiting the island oh Oahu for several years and visited Kuoloa Ranch for the first time. It was such a fun experience. You were surrounded by the lush, beautiful scenery; learned a bit of Oahu history; and got some fun movie history as well.
Movie Tour was fantastic! A bit of history, lots of movie sites and great photo ops. Our tour guide was funny and very patient with the group, allowing us all the get the photos we wanted. Kualoa Ranch is a beautiful place to visit, and fun for the whole family.
We took the 1 hour movie tour and all our kids (aged 4-16) had a ball. It was fantastic to learn about the history of the ranch, aside from its use in films and television, and how they’re continuing to use the land sustainably to preserve the site for the future.
Our tour guide was bubbly and friendly and explained everything in a way that even the little ones found entertaining.
We had an awesome experience at Kualoa ranch everything was organized promptly. We had lots of fun with Kyle, he was funny and made the excursion more memorable. This place was out of this world with nature. I can’t wait to come here again. Kualoa ranch is a must see in O’ahu, can’t miss out on this beautiful and memorable experience!!! Loved it 😊💜
This tour went above and beyond what I expected! It wasn't just about the movies that were filmed on the ranch but also about the history of the land and purpose it provides the island today. Our tour guide Jared was awesome! He really made the tour fun and exciting and was hilarious as well! Overall great fun and much recommended.
I just wanted to thank the staff at the ranch for their exceptional customer service. Someone in our party had a walker and needed assistance. We had requested a wheelchair accessible bus but it wasn’t available. I stopped a staff member walking by and asked her some questions. She took the time to answer and then she helped us get checked in quicker. Another staff member graciously picked up my mom in a golf cart so she wouldn’t have to walk so far. Then the guide helped her on the bus and also saved the first seat for her. What could have been a disaster was actually a wonderful experience thanks to gracious and helpful staff members. Thank you so much!
