Being the biggest LOST fans on the planet, we were excited about doing this tour in hawaii! We wanted to book the 10 hour tour, but it was unavailable for some reason? we did the 5 hour tour with a couple who werent into LOST so i think we missed out on alot, as the guide was trying to entertain the both of us. overall its a must, you will recognise so many scenes, and see some beautiful places.

Thanks for the great response and we are glad you had a great time on the tour. The 5 hour is a combination of Lost, Movies and TV shows....so we do our best to make everyone happy. The 8 hour tour is just for Lost fans. Please look us up the next time you visit Hawaii. Mahalo for your business and we hope to see you back "to the island" soon. Ed

Ricardo was an excellent guide. It was so fun to get to act out the scenes, and he would take pictures with plastic toys hanging in front of the camera screen to make it look like we were being attacked by dinosaurs from Jurassic Park, pushing the van with Hurley, getting attacked by the Smog Monster, and more. We drove through huge ruts in the mud in the Hummer with no problem. One of the most fun tours ever! Highly recommended!

This was our second tour with Kos. We found it a couple of years ago by chance and were very impressed. We chose then to do a day tour of the island looking at film locations and locations for tv series such as lost and other tv series. This time we chose a 5 hr tour in a Hummer of film and tv locations. It was a brilliant tour, there were 4 of us who were picked up from our hotel in a bright yellow hummer. I was

Sue, thank you for taking another tour with us. Yes, the 5 and 8 are completely different tours that are filled with filming locations. I like the 5 hour tour better because it goes off road.....but that is not for everyone. Thank you for taking the time to write a response and your continued business. Hope to see you back in the islands soon. Mahalo, Ed Kos.

My husband and I took the two hour Lost tour in December 2012. We figured we would take the shorter tour because to be honest, I have never seen a Lost episode! But I saw that the tour got so many good reviews and we wanted to do something more on our trip than just hang out at the beach and do the typical shopping, so why not spend a couple hours in a beautiful scenic area being driven around a HUGE Kualoa Ranch in a Hummer? We saw where they filmed many more movies than Lost, some which included Hawaii Five-O, the Windtalkers, Brady Bunch, Journey 2-the Mysterious Island, Jurassic Park, and some others I cant remember anymore! The tour guide (I think his name was Jeff) was great, he showed us clips from some movie scenes from a portable DVD player in the hummer, and then would let us get out of the car and "experience" the part right where it happened. He also offered to take pictures of us and held up some props to make the pictures look like the movie scenes! It was pretty funny.. Anyway, I would definitely take the tour even if you are not a fan. (I couldnt imagine if I WAS a "Lost" fan, I would've probably had a heart attack from enjoyment!) The views in and of itself were amazing. There is also a little gift shop unrelated to the tour on the property where they serve food and sell souvenirs at very reasonable prices. This was our first time to Oahu Island (we usually go to the Big Island or Maui), but if we ever come back here, this is a tour I would definitely do again!

I am glad you had a great time on Oahu and on your tour with Jeff and Ed. Don't need to be a Lost fan as you stated. Tons of movies and other TV show filmed all around the island of Oahu, but our two hour tours packs a punch. I want to thank you and your husband for seeking out an adventure with KOS Tours and a Big Mahalo for taking the time to write a detailed review. Hope to see you back on Oahu in the near future. Aloha, Ed

Best tour ever! Riccardo gave us the 8-hour tour of Oahu in a Hummer. We saw various "Lost" locations (plus one from "The Descendants" and "Last Resort") including beaches, bars, cliffs, dock, valleys, gas station, airstrip, shrimp truck, Hurley's golf course, Jug Head tower, Nigeria, Australia, South Korea, Dominican Republic, Dharmaville. Riccardo was fun and knowledgeable without being obnoxious. He took pictures of us with various props (polar bear, VW van, smoke monster, Hurley) that came out great. Even my son, who did not watch the series, enjoyed the trip. Off road on the ranch was a blast!

Glad Riccardo was not obnoxious and showed you a good time. Riccardo loves what he does and wants to make a memorable experience for everyone, and he seems to have done that with your family. The valley at Kualoa and the North Shore of Oahu is beautiful. You don't get bored of it. Thank you for your review and business. Hope to see you back in the islands soon. Ed.
