We had a great evening of food, entertainment and Hawaiian culture and history. It began when we were picked up in very comfortable bus and transported to the Kahua Ranch . During the trip, we had the opportunity to view some very educational and interesting video about Hawaii and the history of catlle ranching and its place in Hawaiian history.... More

Spend a fun day day at a Hawaiian ranch, go horseback riding, learn how to lasso, or have a flavorful ranch style meal. Nice scenery too!

Great dinner, lots of interesting facts about the cattle industry and a generous open bar made for a wonderful evening under the stars. Be sure you bring a light jacket as it cools quickly after the sun goes down! Live music, dancing etc.

I went on this tour as I thought it would be a nice night out. It was. The food was good, with alcohol included in the price. The ride by bus too and from the location was included as well. At a cost of $138 per person ($276 per couple), the price is rather steep for what you get.

This was our second visit to Kahua Ranch. Our first was an event for the Nature Conservancy. We chose Kahua Ranch for a private "Crew Appreciation Day" for our staff. The Western-style Barbeque and related activities were exactly what we wanted for this event. They arranged for a bus to pick us up at our shop in Kailua-Kona, and deliver... More

We opted to do this tour because we got a discount from our resort. The food was good, but wasn't anything super special considering the price. The country music entertainment was okay and some of the activities were quite fun. The thing that really made the evening nice was the informative talk about ranching in HI - thanks to John...

A visit to Kahua Ranch is always one of our highlights whenever visiting the beautiful island of Hawaii. From John's welcome, to the plentiful beverages served, to the sunset on the horizon, to the great barbecue dinner, to the wonderful entertainment & dancing, and to the amazing appearance of Miss Piggly Wiggley, this Ranch is a magical place that is...

My husband and I had a great time. I strongly suggest you partake in the various activities, to get the full experience. I have my picture on the horse with the beautiful sunset in the background. I roped the wooden calf a few times. We even line danced, though Sue justifiably commented my husband looked like he was doing the... More

This was a fun night on the ranch. We were invited for a Steak Dinner and got oh so much more. I would never have thought there was a cattle ranch on the Island of Hawaii, but there we were at the top of a mountain watching the cattle graze. Lots of fun, learned a lot, did some star gazing...
