The tour was great but the timing was off. We left early in the morning and did not get to see Pearl Harbor until late afternoon. Tour guide was amazing.....
Our tour guide was wonderful, knowledgeable, and friendly. I would highly recommend this tour as both Pearl Harbor and Punchbowl were awe inspiring.
This tour was the perfect choice for us. We have 3 kids, ages 10-16. The tour guide was friendly, funny and informative. We toured old Honolulu, and got so much more out of it because of the tour guide. Pearl Harbor is incredibly well done. Taking the Polynesian Adventure Tour made the day easy and fun.
A thorough introduction to the City of Honolulu and the events at Pearl Harbor. We could not have had a more knowledgeable, entertaining and organized tour guide as Ernel. It was a long day as our pick was at 6:30am and we had to pick up several others at hotels. And then drop off after. I was tired was pleased. No real lunch stop. On the go most of the time. Pack some stacks. A Grill at the USS Missouri and food was good but little time to eat.
We got picked up from the Sheraton Loading Bay at 6.40am. It was a very early start. We travelled to the Pearl Harbor Arizona Memorial site. You can visit the muesum and also the displays at the site before going to the theater to view a short movie of the bombing in Pearl Harbor. After the movie you are loaded on a small boat and taken out to the memorial. It is a very moving and quiet site. You are there for probably ten minutes. There is a list of names of soldiers and civilians that lost their lives on the historic day in history. And the oil from the Arizona is still visiable in the water. Then we had a short bus drive to the USS Missouri where we had a guided tour of the ship and spent around 1 hour there exploring the levels of the ship it was very interesting. We travel to the Punchbowl area and to the National Cemetery, we didn't get out of the bus but viewed it from inside. We also visited the Iolani Palace and also the statue of King Kamehameha again all from the bus. The driver was very informative and commented throughout the day. It is a must see when in Hawaii.
This tour was great - we only had seven people on the tour which made it very comfortable and easy. The time at Pearl Harbor was just right. It was a nice way to see parts of the island without having to rent a car. The driver was great providing interesting insights and very personable.
Tour guide was very well informed. Pearl Harbor was a very touching experience.
The tour, guide and driver were fabulous, we had a couple of unfortunate blips, the bus broke down but was replaced promptly not inconvenienced much as had extra time for photos at the Palace while waiting for replacement 10-15 min and then when we arrived at Pearl Harbor the shuttle out to the Arizona was cancelled due to conditions wind. Both unpredictable and will try the tour again next time I am on the island as the price and people were fantastic!
Dwight was a great driver, since we only drove thru punch bowl I would have skipped so we could have more than 5 min at palace and didn't even have enough time to do the two small museums at Pearl Harbor.
We enjoyed the tour of Pearl Harbor and the tour of The Arizona.
The tour of Waikiki was too long, could have bypassed the town town area.
We wished there had been a tour that included The Missouri.
Should have been better. The trip started late and we could not stop when we got to Punchbowl memorial. Pearl Harbor was awesome.
I will keep this simple.....We booked and paid for this tour and when we were already enroute to our destination the driver informed us that they did not have a ticket for every guest on board.There were 62 people and 52 admission tickets. UNACCEPTABLE !!! We did eventually make it into Pearl Harbor and the Memorial after 3 rounds on standbyabout and hour and a half wait. I would not recommend this tour group. Beware.
Great tour on the double decker bus of Honolulu and then of Pearl Harbor. Jason, our guide on the bus, was very friendly and full of great info. We also very much appreciated the ponchos as it rained off and on!
2nd time doing Pearl Harbor. Water was clear and we could see so much of the Arizona.
Island Tour was good, visited some beaches on North Shore and seen some beautiful parts of Hawaii. Bus was great, air conditioned and driver/tour guide very knowledgable. Lunch at Kuloa Ranch would have preferred something more traditional like a shrimp shack. Not sure the stop at the Macadamia place near Ranch necessary especially as we had just eaten lunch. All in all it was enjoyed by all.
Really enjoyed the information shared on the tour- The Pearl Harbor Memorial is a must for all visitors!
