Kualoa Ranch - Hollywood Movie Sites Tour
I had a great time seeing the sights. I saw where many of the movies were filmed. The female bus driver and tour guide was great and a terrific driver with the big bus going on narrow roads . Sorry I forgot her name.

Least Expensive Tour, but Well Worth the Money

Kualoa Ranch - Hollywood Movie Sites Tour
I love movies so I was able to remember most of the scenes that were described by the tour guide to have been filmed on the property. It was a very memorable experience for the movie trivia, as well as the WWII history trivia. This is the least expensive tour option, and it felt like such. But overall, it was well worth the money.

It was my birthday and Ursula was the greatest. She was our driver/tour guide. She made the movie site tour amazing for us all. She also had everyone sing me happy birthday. It was great. I will never forget what an amazing time we had.

Kualoa Ranch - Horseback Walking Tour
My wife (who had never ridden a horse) and I booked this as our first activity on our last full day on the island. Our guide Kylie was wonderful, the trail was beautiful, the horses were calm and knew where to go. We thoroughly enjoyed learning about the ranch and its history.

How to Get There

The property is set 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of Waikiki Beach and about 11 miles (18 kilometers) north of Kaneohe on Oahu’s windward side. It’s possible to take public transit via The Bus from Waikiki (Bus 55 runs past the property), but most visitors drive themselves along the scenic coastal roads or choose a tour that includes hotel pickup and roundtrip transportation.

Show all


When to Get There

The ranch is open daily from 8:30am to 6pm. While each tour departs several times per day, active tours—like ATV riding and ziplining—are best done in early morning or late afternoon to avoid midday heat. Year-round temperatures on Oahu are almost always between 70°F (21­°C) and 80°F (27­°C), so there is no bad time of year to visit, though rain showers are most common between November and February.

The ranch offers a 90-minute standard movie tour, a 2.5-hour premier movie site tour, and a special 90-minute Jurassic Park Jungle Expedition, all with multiple daily departures.
