Frequently Asked Questions
H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend aso much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or a increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Most companies have a set of centrally located hotels that they do pick ups from. This makes the pickup process short so you can start the tour as soon as possible!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!
Availability here changes constantly. We can tell you something is available and then 5 minutes later someone else books and its not available anymore. If you make a booking and your activity is not available, then you will not be charged. No hassles, no worries!
Only the 2 hour horseback tour visits the movie sites. However, if you take the Horseback Adventure Package on of the "Experience Tours" you can do is a Movie Sites & Ranch Tour in which you will see different sites.
There will be a brief orientation upon arriving at the ranch, after which there will be activity sign up. Liability release forms will need to be signed for each tour.
Unfortunately, this is not allowable due to safety concerns. Each rider must meet all of the riding restrictions.
Packing/doubling are not allowed on these tours. Our equipment accommodates one person per Horse/ATV.
All of our activities are fully guided tours. Touring the beautiful Kualoa property is our specialty!
Yes, we rent lockers with a $10 deposit for all day use.
Not at the moment. We do offer tours that are good for the whole family. Our Secret Island Beach Activities option is a great place to enjoy Hawaii on a secluded beach for adults and children alike.
We can accommodate vegetarian requests at Aunty Pat’s Cafe.

I absolutely loved it!!
Overall:
I did the 2 hour horseback tour of the ranch, and it was amazing!! The ranch is breathtakingly beautiful and being able to tour it on horseback was a very unique experience. A must do for any horse enthusiast (experienced or beginner). I raved about my experience and the view so much that my boyfriend had to see the place for himself, so we went back at the end of the week to do the ranch and movie ... moresites tour via bus. He had an awesome time as well. Our tour guide Leonard rocked! On both tours, the guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend a visit to Kualoa Ranch if you are traveling anywhere in Hawaii!! :D

Definitely my favorite location during my vacation on Oahu
Overall:
Had an excellent time at Kualoa for a horseback excursion and a tour of the movie sites! I like how the movie tour also included the long and interesting history of the ranch. I had hoped for a little more time at the Jurassic park site to explore the area but I understand time constraints. The buffet lunch was nice, the fresh pineapple was especially delicious! Navigating the grounds was easy, and ... morethe staff was helpful and friendly.

We did the 2hr Horseback ride --- our tour guide was Amy and she was fantastic! She told us not only many things about Kualoa itself, but also about the island and its history and even things about the movies/movie sets located in the valley. The land is just beautiful and amazing and we took so many pictures! We will definitely visit Kualoa again if we return to Hawaii!

Went on the 2 hr Horseback riding tour and it was awesome
Overall:
The place is so beautiful and the trail took us up into the Kaaawa valley which has a long history on the island and it is said the kings used to build their palaces in this valley and I can understand why. The horses were very well behaved, think I had the cheekiest one in the bunch and even I could handle him just fine. Our guides Honda and Amber were very friendly and knowledgeable and they even ... moretook some pictures of us on my camera that turned out really nice, a great keep sake of our visit. Went with my daughter and one of her friends and I don't think they could have been more thrilled. My wife isn't a horse person and she did the movie tour and had great things to say about it too. Our visit to the Kualoa Ranch on our trip was time well spent. Mahalo
