Are you a fan of "Hawaii-Five-0" or "Lost"? How about "Jurassic Park" or "Pearl Harbor"? See where these and other popular TV shows and movies have been filmed during your tour of scenic Kaaawa Valley. You might even see a shooting in progress!

Named one of America's top 10 Movie Site Tours, the Kualoa Movie Sites and Ranch Tour takes you on a tour of parts of the Ranch where many blockbuster movies and television series have been filmed over the years, including Jurassic Park, Windtalkers, 50 First Dates, Hawaii Five-0, Lost, Off the Map, Battleship, and Pearl Harbor. This popular tour includes a stop at the oldest sugar mill on the island of Oahu, the chance to check out a World War II bunker with a photo exhibit from various movie productions, and stunning views of the beautiful Kaaawa Valley, which is owned by Kualoa Ranch.

Once sacred land to the ancient residents of Oahu, this area housed the revered drums of Kapahuula. In the 19th century, the land was inhabited by Gerrit P. Judd physician and missionary, who began a sugar plantation there, to be operated by his son-in-law, Samuel Garner Wilder. Judd was also deemed a trusted advisor and cabinet minister to King Kamehameha III of Hawaii (1813-1954).

The land was also the site of Kualoa Airfield during World War II, a vital training ground used by the 28th Photographic Reconnaissance Squadron, and the 18th Fighter Group, which operated the famous Curtiss P-40 Warhaw/Kittyhawk attack planes. It is only appropriate, then, that Hollywood production companies have viewed Kualoa as an optimal location for World War II films such as Pearl Harbor.

The Kualoa Movie Sites & Ranch Tour takes visitors through this “backlot of Hawaii” in Kaawa Valley to see the actual filming locations for the aforementioned films. You’ll see Godzilla’s footprints, the battleground from Windtalkers, and multiple locations from Lost and 50 First Dates. Keep your eyes peeled for current filming action as well - you may just see a take being shot for hit television series Hawaii 5-0! You will also have the chance to see breathtaking views of Mokolii Island (Chinaman's Hat), Kaneohe Bay, and the most popular surf spots on Oahu! The tour lasts approximately one hour, and affords visitors a unique opportunity to see some of the most stunning, and most videotaped, areas of Oahu!

Comments about Smart Destinations Movie Sites and Ranch Tour at Kualoa Ranch:

I personally almost didn't like anything about this. Pick-up is available only once a day. So no matter what time your tour starts, you have only one option - go there at 7 AM and come back 2:30 PM. Our tour was at 10:30 AM. We didn't take any other tours because the Guidebook says "Your choice of one of the following 1.5 hour tours per day". The only thing we could do before and after our tour is - eat in the restaurant. Boring. Tour itself: lack of informations about movies. I heard more about the property itself (cost, size) and fishes and cows that live there, than about movies. Out of those 90 minutes, I heard about movies for about 15 minutes maximum. Nature is very nice, can't deny.

Comments about Smart Destinations Movie Sites and Ranch Tour at Kualoa Ranch:

My daughters and I went on this tour when it first opened. Needless to say it was inexpensive then, but I would pay to do it again. Our tour guides were great, interactive and just a kick in the butt! Not sure how much is the same, but either way, the friendly people at the ranch will make it worth the while!

A great day
By Bill Brasher Verified Reviewer from Vancouver on

Comments about Smart Destinations Movie Sites and Ranch Tour at Kualoa Ranch:

We actually did the bonus of the 1/2 day at Kualoa which included the movie site tour and secret beach and a show and dinner. The movie site tour was a blast...who knew so many shows were filmed at one location. You could pick out scenes from movies like Jurasic park...really a great day. The guides were funny and knowledgeable and we took some great photos.
