If like me, you can’t wait for the special features DVD to come out, the Hollywood Hawaii: Movies & Waterfalls tour is for you. With surround sound our “theatre on wheels” allowed us to relive some classic movie moments. So many great movies came from the island of Kauai. John Wayne and Lee Marvin filmed “Donovan’s Reef” here and Elvis Presley’s loved it so much he filmed “Girls Girls Girls” and his most famous movie, “Blue Hawaii.”
Our smiling and cheerful guide welcomed us to “Jurassic Park” and we sang along as we passed the “land called Hanalei” better known as the home of “Puff the Magic Dragon.” Lunch was served at a restaurant where they filmed a part of the yet to be released “Deceptions” starring George Clooney. The natural beauty of Kauai was not forgotten either, with stops at two beautiful waterfalls, one of which featured on the opening credits of “Fantasy Island”. We stood on three amazing beaches, with thoughts of “South Pacific” and stopped for photos of the famous King Kong Mountain.
Each stop was a piece of Hollywood history – now that’s what I call entertainment!
