Great guides!

This was our 1st time zip lining and our guides made us feel so comfortable. It was pretty expensive, the pictures more so, but it was a fun trip.

I can't imagine visiting this beautiful privately owned ranch and not having a fabulous time. So many great activities offered it was hard to choose for our 1 day visit. My husband and I did the Jungle Tour in the morning, had the delicious buffet lunch, then went zip-lining for the afternoon. Zip-lining over this beautiful valley couldn't have been... More

Definitely highly recommend visiting Kualoa Ranch. The valleys are amazing with a rich history, and the tour guides, who are not only incredibly friendly, also make the trip enjoyable and informative. The guides are always offering to take stop and take pictures, as well as help you learn more about the movies that have been filmed in the locations. They... More

I am a local and I haven't been to Kualoa Ranch in over a decade, and never for anything other than planned group events, but since I have family visiting from the mainland (and an AMAZING DISCOUNT from a friend) I thought they'd like to take a tour and I was so happily surprised by how much my kids and...

Great place to explore! Had fun time touring in the bus and saw all the movie sites. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly to tell us all the history about Hawaii, the Ranch and the movie sites.

My boyfriend and I decided to do the ATV adventure package where you get the ATV tour and 2 other activities of your choice. I was a bit skeptical of this idea, as the website doesn't give you extensive detail as to what each activity entails. When we spent our day at Kualoa Ranch, I was blown away! We chose... More

I took the zipline tour with my 10 year old son and friends. The zipline tour was excellent, the scenery was amazing. This was my son's first time ziplining and he had a great time, he said it was the best part of our trip. Some of the helmets have gopro attachments that you can use, just ask. Also make... More

Go here. Just do it. Kualoa Ranch is a beautiful place, and the staff are all so friendly and helpful! We went on the Premier Movie Sites Tour and had such an amazing time!!
