“One of the Best Excursions I have been on!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

My wife and I had the opportunity of taking the 8 Hour Lost Tour during our trip to Oahu. I had been looking forward to this tour for months, and they did not disappoint.

We are both very big Lost fans and I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is. We took this tour during our first day on the island. It was great because they take you all over and it helped us familiarize ourselves with Oahu. We saw all the major sites that the Lost team used for filming, and then some. If you are a Lost fan, this tour is a MUST-DO if you have plans of visiting Oahu anytime soon.

Our tour guide was Scott and he did a great job. He was a big Lost fan as well so it was cool bringing back memories and talking about the show with him. He introduced us to a great place for lunch, Fumis, that my wife and I ended up visiting again because it was so good. Thank you Scott for recommending Sharks Cove for snorkeling we went the next day and it was amazing!

When my wife and I return to Oahu we will 100% be taking a KOS tour again!

Thank you for taking the time to write a response. Taking the tour at the beginning of your trip is the way to go. You get to see some places that you might want to go back to and spend some more time. Sharks cove is a great place to snorkel, but only during the summer months. In the winter, huge surf breaks on the rocks. Scott does a great job and I am lucky to have him along with my other guides. You have to be a Lost fan to give this tour, so I just can't hire anyone. Fumi's...Great place to eat. Gotta love garlic......Mahalo again for your business and writing the review. Ed Kos

“Amazing tour!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Our tour guide Greg was so much fun! He brought us to all the movie sights, and at times, played clips on his laptop for us to see exactly where we were via the movie clip. He brought props, and took tons of pictures with us with them. And they came out fantastic. So much fun!!!

“Lost Tour Not Just For Lost Junkies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

My wife really wanted to go on the KOS lost tour. I had seen about the first two seasons, and the finale, but I wasn't a huge lost fan. Then I learned the tour was 5 hours and I really didn't want to go, so I read the reviews on trip advisor and they were excellent. So I decided to go for it. I'll be brief- this tour was amazing. It was about more than just Lost. There have been so many movies filmed in Hawaii and you get to see the sets that are still there. There are a lot of moments for amazing photos. Literally the most beautiful settings I have ever seen, were on this tour. Our guide Scotty was awesome, and Ed the Owner even showed up in a Dharma Initiative jumpsuit. Whether you lost Lost, or movies, or nature, you can't go wrong on this tour.

Glad you have a great time, even if you are not a Lost fan. The tour is called the Movie/Lost Hummer adventure. So you are right, a lot more than just Lost. I have been giving this tour for 9 years now, and I still love getting in the Valley and enjoying the views. OK, the Dharma suit; don't do it all the time. Just wanted to have some fun and make people smile. I guess it worked. I will let Scotty know you posted a review. Mahalo for your business and taking the time to write a review. Ed Kos

“Great adventure !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We are just back from Hawaii ..
The 8-hour Lost tour with our guide Jeff was absolutely fantastic.
Jeff is a great guy – fun to be with and an exceptional tour guide. He took the time to explain, share stories - all with a great sense of humour.

Not only did we discovered the «Lost» secrets, we explored Oahu in a relaxed and fun atmosphere in the perfect vehicule - a hummer.

I would recommend the tour without hesitation ! Sylvie, Ben and Charles

Jeff does a great job. He knows his Lost, but he worked as a tour guide for 4 years before coming to KOS Tours, so he has a lot of knowledge about the island. Small groups in a hummer is the way to go. The time is used to maximize the locations we can show you. I want to thank you for your business and taking the time to write a response. Aloha and Mahalo, Ed Kos
