Our family visited this beautiful ranch in April 2017. We were able to take part in the movie tour, jungle tour, and catamaran tour. As the day was dreary and rainy we did not get the full effect of the beauty in this wonderful looking haven. I am sure if the sun had have been shining brightly, it would have... More

Our party of 5 did several of the adventures in the rain. Jungle Expedition Tour The ZipLine Tour ending with the ATV 1 hour. They were all wonderful. The staff were incredible & took care of everything. We did lunch in the Cafe and that was also very good. If it hadn't rained but the Kualoa Ranch folks couldn't change... More

We chose the 1 1/2 hour tour and were lucky to get tickets online as most time slots were filled. There is a gift shop to browse and a restaurant to pass time in while waiting for the bus. The driver of the vintage school bus was a fun guide with lots of amusing anecdotes and factoids about the ranch's... More

We did the Jungle Expedition tour. It was amazing!! We loved all of the beautiful sites that you get to see. Our tour guide was so awesome and knowledgeable about the whole place and the history of Hawaii. He was awesome about letting us get amazing pictures. I would definitely recommend taking a tour here.

We really loved Kualoa Ranch - it is absolutely beautiful! We got the deluxe package to try and do as much as we could and we wish we wouldn't have. Our ATV ride was an absolute joke - after only about 15 minutes of riding we stopped, took photos at a location, and then they took us back and we... More

My kids really enjoyed the ranch. There were lots of horses to view, which was a highlight for them. They loved seeing the pictures of actors that have filmed here. We went on the catamaran cruise today, which passes through the hidden beach. They liked the preview of the hidden beach and want to do that tour tomorrow. On the... More

Went on a sunny day in March and the views were stunning driving the ATVs was fun and a thrilling experience. Had a blast, if you do go opt for the 2 hour session the time flies by so quickly!

We had a great time on the long ATV tour. I think how difficult the trails are depends on who your guide is and where they chose to take you. We had a fantastic guide who took us on some "non beginner" trails and it was a blast. Our ATVs definitely went over 12MPH. The speedometer read 22MPH at one... More

This was a last minute trip, we had been on a cruise and had one day left prior to a 7am flight departure. Firstly we were unsure what time we could leave the ship, so when calling the ranch for a reservation they were kind enough to hold the tickets until we knew we could get off the ship and... More

We did the Zipline and Premier Movie tour. Our guide for the Premier Movie Tour was Kiapo and he was awesome. He shared all kinds of info about the ranch as well as Hawaiian people in general and was very attentive to all our needs. Our daughter and granddaughter did the zipline.
