“Highlight of our Honeymoon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

What can I say about KOS Tours that many havent already said. We visitied for our honeymoon in Hawaii and this made our trip SO much fun. My wife and I were huge Lost fans which already made the tour fun but our guide was Awesome. He was very personable and told us so much about Hawaii and its history as well as other fun things to do on the island while provideing us a great romantic tour. We have so many fun found memories and pictures that will last a lifetime. THANKS FOR A GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!!!

“Great Way To Spend The Day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

If you're a fan of "Lost" or just tv/movies in general you should really check this place out. While I'm not a huge "Lost" fan there were plenty of other locations that I found really interesting! I'm a huge Hawaii Five-0 fan and it was great to see where they filmed different scenes including where McGarrett was rescued in "North Korea." Plus we saw locations from movies like "50 First Dates" and "Jurassic Park." Plus it was a fun way to see different parts of the island.

Our tour guide was Greg (I think) and we did the 5 hour tour. He was great! He shared his own stories (like being on "Lost") and was more than happy to take pictures for us and even had fun little props! It's little things like that which makes you want to recommend them and come back for more!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes your guide was Greg. He has been Lost, Windtalkers and Karate Kid II. He loves the film industry and loves sharing Hawaii. Hawaii Five 0 films a lot at the locations we take you to on the tour. But, look out for Last Resort. It came out 2 weeks ago and the film quite often in the areas we go. A big Mahalo for your business and we hope to see you back in Hawaii soon. ed

“Hummer Tour that was a trip highlight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

The highlight of our recent trip was the KOS 5 hour hummer tour. There were only 4 of us on this tour, which is typical, so it was really private and extremely enjoyable. We were picked up at our hotel at 7 am and off we went for our adventure. Jeff, our guide, was very informative and fun to be with. I think we all shared a love of the new Hawaii Five-O show, so he made a point of showing us all sorts of areas where the crew films the show.

As we headed to Kualoa Ranch where lots of Hawaii Five-O and other movies are shot, we went up the Windward side of the island driving along Kaneohe Bay and Jeff, our fantastic guide, stopped at various places where different movies were filmed and we all got to take pictures and explore.

At the ranch, we actually got to go places that the regular tours put on by the ranch cannot get to. Off-roading was fun, and the scenery was gorgeous. Part of why we wanted to come to Oahu was to see all of this beautiful scenery and this tour gave us an up-close look at it from a vantage point where regular vehicles cannot explore.

On the way back before getting dropped off at our hotel, we also saw several places in Honolulu where Five-O shoots including the Kamehameha statue, the Five-O headquarters, police building, etc. So for anyone who is a movie fan, or a Five-O fan, this is the tour for you. We were back at our hotel by noon and had the rest of the day to enjoy the beautiful beaches, shopping and other things. So we would highly recommend KOS tours. They do have other tours available as well.

Wow, what a review. Thank you for taking the time to write it. Also thank you for your business. Hawaii Five 0 films all over the island and we are lucky enough to take you to some of the cool locations. Check out the show Last Resort. They also film the show on Oahu and we see them quite often filming. Come to Hawaii often. Mahalo again. Ed

“One of the most fun parts of our trip to Hawaii”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

This tour shows sites where LOST was filmed as well as other shows and movies (Jurassic Park, 50 First Dates, Pearl Harbor and more). We took the 2 hour hummer ride with our guide Greg (I think). We love LOST and he made the tour extra fun because he had props and took our pictures as we reenacted different scenes. We laughed and had so much fun. He also showed us clips on his laptop that pertained to the various locations. He was an extra on LOST and was able to tell us many details such as what the actors were like and why various people were written out of the show. We loved the tour. An added plus was the Kualoa Ranch which also offers horseback riding, ATV rides, and other activities. They also have a cafe with good food at reasonable prices.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes, you guide's name is Greg. He loves to make people laugh. Not only was he in Lost, but Windtalkers and Karate Kid 2. Kualoa Ranch is beautiful. If we did not tell you about one Lost location or Movie location, it would still be a great tour. Thank you for your business and again thank you for posting.
