HAWAII MOVIE TOUR
Lights, camera … action! If you’re a film buff, this Kauai movie day tour is especially for you. With its natural beauty and tropical landscapes, Kauai has long been a sought-out destination for Hollywood. You’ll love recognizing the iconic locations and backdrops from all your favorite films. For the maximum experience, immerse yourself in movie clips aboard the tour minibus and see how filmmakers made the island of Kauai translate onto the silver screen.
See where Harrison Ford and Anne Heche survived a crash landing in “Six Days and Seven Nights.” Relive the fate of those shipwrecked on “Gilligan’s Island” and feel just like a competitor in “The Amazing Race.” Check out the waterfall shown in the opening credits on “Fantasy Island” and remember, dead men tell no tales on “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
Or you can croon along with Elvis in “Blue Hawaii” in Coco Palms – this is a special treat, as Roberts Hawaii is the only tour and transportation company with access to this popular site.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
“This was such a fantastic tour that we will probably do it again in the future!” – Visitor, Florida (Trip Advisor)
“Our tour guide was wonderful. She was full of fun-filled facts about the island, Hawaiian culture and of course, told us about all the movies and movie locations. By the end of the tour, we had learned a lot about not only about movie making on Kauai, but a lot about the island itself. This tour is definitely worth doing.” – Visitor, Florida (Trip Advisor)
“We planned this tour even before leaving the mainland as we expected it to be the highlight of our trip. It was a fun and relaxing way to see Kauai as we watched film clips that were timed to match the arrival at various points of interest. Now that we are home, we are watching the movies again with our new memories!” – Visitor, Kentucky, (Trip Advisor)
