It is a long day but I thought it was worth the money. Our tour driver Ernie was awesome. We got into the Arizona Memorial and aboard the Missouri. One note I would mention, please if you go on the Arizona memorial, please remove your hats. It is a grave sight and many forget it is not a tour. Seeing the other parts of the island was a bonus. We went and had lunch on Waikiki and learned a lot about the beginnings of Hawaii. It was more than I expected.
A wonderful and informative trip. The guide really went out of his way to be entertaining and informative. In one day we got a great sense of the island of Oahu, Pearl Harbor and the memorials and so much more. I highly recommend this day trip. Everything was very well coordinated and planned, The guide was funny, informative and really went out of his way to ensure everyone's satisfaction.
Awesome to see Pearl Harbor. Ed was incredible narrating us through. Our guide/driver was very knowledgeable of Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, Punch Bowl, Waikiki and DiamondHead.
I enjoyed the tour very much. They picked us up at 5:30am but didn't get to Pearl until close to 10am. We had to wait at a Starbucks for an hour until another plane came in. Made it a long day.
It was an amazing day trip. Our tour guide Dwight was very knowledgeable and informative about the places he took us to see. A trip to Hawaii is not complete until you see Pearl Harbor. We learned a lot about the war that we weren't taught in school. It brought a whole new respect for the men and women who serve our country. These armed service members past, present and in the future will always receive my gratitude for giving me and my family the opportunity to travel and see the world and reflect on what we have to be thankful for.
Trip was good. Driver/ guide was barely adequate- a bit disappointing! I would not recommend to others if it is same guide.
It was a great tour. The tour guide was very informative. You a nice amount of free time to see everything and explore the area.
Great overview of Pearl Harbor! Honolulu add-on was also very enjoyable. City tour and Punchbowl made the day just way too long. I think everyone was exhausted at this point. Many were asleep on the bus.
I traveled with my Son and his Family. We knew it was a long day and wasn't sure how the kids (10 and 6 years) would be. Our Tour Guide (Peter - I believe) was great. He was friendly, knowledgeable and provided many help bits of information throughout the day. The stop for lunch in Waikiki was filled with recommendations for lunch and shopping. We enjoyed Pearl Harbor as well as Honolulu, Diamond Head and the Punchbowl. The bus was very clean (looked new) and cool during a hot day. Peter was very clear on where and when to meet and he was extremely dependable. Well done. We loved the Hawaiian Air flight vs. the small planes. All in all, a very enjoyable day!
Wonderful tour guide
It was truly an amazing day. Our driver Leo was awesome. I highly recommend this trip if you are staying in Hawaii.
What an incredible experience!! Totally worth every penny.
Overall, most of the tour was great, however we could have done without the long drive through Honolulu and the wasted time at the end of the day in Waikiki. I would have preferred to have had more time at both Pearl Harbor and the USS Missouri. Those were the main events and we did not have enough time at them because we had to do the long drive of over an hour, then get dropped off to wander around Waikiki shops and hotels for two hours. That could have easily been cut in half. Our tour guide Matt was knowledgeable , but completely bored and disinterested when narrating the tour.
The description provided was a bit misleading - more time should have been spent on Arizona, and Missouri tours. Too much time downtown for us, dropping off at the Westin for a "few hours of Waikiki" wasn't really all that it was cracked up to be. My issues are really with the way the tour was organized and the very POOR communication with Viator regarding details of the trip. When we booked the trip, I was unsure of what resort on Maui we were staying in, so I called to ask if I should hold off booking the tour or could I fill in that information later. I was assured that I could add it later. WELL..... after no less than 12 phone calls betweenViator and the local tour group, as well as an additional $209 fee, we had our hotel pickup and dropoff. NOT worth the additional money, especially when booked, the reservation stated round trip transportation provided! I was told that was only included if you included the information at time of booking (which I called to confirm). Otherwise a very pleasant tour.
Note from Viator: Thank you for your feedback! I wanted to write back and comment on the additional cost. The reason the cost was assessed was not because you gave the hotel pickup and drop off late, but your initial reservation was for the tour only, and not for the pickup and drop off. In order to be able to offer the transportation, we needed to also charge you for it.
Please note, under the "Important Info" section, you can see the price differences with, and without the transfers. We hope this information helps, you and future travelers in ensuring that you purchase the tours and activities that best suit your needs.
Had a good day but a bit too long and exhausting especially lunch was arranged too late at 3pm and we had to go back and forth between Maui and Honululu. Feel that Pearl Harbor and USS Missouri can be compiled in the morning. Our tour guide, Ernie, a veteran, is great!
