The company this tour is through was very well organized and made sure we got to every activity with no stress on our part. Great tour and a great way to hit the highlights of Oahu while staying on another island.
What a great day, the tour was great and so was our driver, Ben. We would definitely do it again!
The day trip to Oahu was well worth the time and money. The time at Pearl Harbor, including both the USS Arizona and USS Missouri, was a must-see for every American. The tour guide was very educational, funny, and flexible. He gave us many hints on how to make the most of our day. The trip was well organized. There were people on our tour from multiple islands, but we all got there about the same time and our departure flights were very close so there wasn't much wasted time. Our entire family enjoyed the day in Oahu.
Spectacular! Very well coordinated, no problems making connections from one island to another. Tour guide, Leo, was great and very informative and helpful, loved him! If you miss this tour you are missing a lot.
Great guide made the whole trip so much more interesting and provided great insights! Well worth it!
All seemed to be well organized. The tour guide was very knowledgeable of the whole area, events, tour locations and had quite a sense of humor. Highly recommend this tour. Thoroughly enjoyed myself.
we had a very good guide. he was helpful, informative, and made sure everyone understood the directions he was giving. great trip.
Excellent all round trip! Very well organised - everything ran very smoothly. An amazing and emotional day trip. Our driver/guide was very good, kept us on time and well informed all day.
This was a thorough and enlightening tour. Our guide, Ed (not Mr. Ed), was a riot. He was not only funny however; he was also very thorough and very clear in his instructions for us. He seemed to have a story or two about everything and that helped make the tour enjoyable. My only disappointment was the brief amount of time (15 minutes) you get to spend on the Arizona, but that's not Viator's fault. I know Pearl Harbor is a very popular tour site but I wish there were a way to allow more time for reflection in a very spiritual place.
Fantastic trip (except for the small small seats on the aircraft. My husband's knees were into the back of the seat in front of us.) Keau was very entertaining and gave us a lot of information. Had a blast.
just need water on the bus and an earlier lunch...otherwise, absolutely dynamic!!!!
This tour was amazing. Our tour guide (Nappy) kept us laughing the whole time and showed us some great sites. He was full of information and made our trip even more enjoyable. I would recommend this tour!
This was a wonderful day trip!! We were able to see and do things that we would not have been able to if we had made the visit on our own. Our guide was very knowledgeable, informative, and fun!! Definitely one of the highlights of our Hawaiian vacation.
I was staying with friends on the "big island",,i had a free day and found this trip online,,,it was a great day trip..i would recommend this tour and thru this vender! 5Stars!
The tour was wonderful and our driver Wes was well informed and funny. Most enjoyable.
It was the most enjoyable tour we have ever taken. We saw more than we expected and learned so much. The tour of the USS Missouri was so interesting and our guide was terrific, so many details. We recommended the trip to a family we met while in Hawaii and they couldn't wait to go. Thank you for such a memorable day.
This was a good way to cover the sights in and around Honolulu. Pearl Harbor is pretty incredible, definitely worth seeing. I would recommend this without any reservations if you want to cover the top sights in Oahu on a day trip from the Big Island.
Nice, the driver was ever informed about the city and was very nice.
This trip is expensive but glad we went. Pearl Harbour was amazing, enjoyed the Missouri visit. Great guide.
We did not get to see Diamond Back Crater which did disappoint me, but we were held up in traffic. Saw Honolulu and Waikiki Beach so commercialized, so glad we were staying on Big Island, laid back Hawaii.
Main problem was the 1-1/2 hour wait at airport after arrival because tour bus was not available and then when arrived had to wait on 2 more arriving flights before tour departure. Could have spent that time at Pearl Harbor instead of waiting around.
Would like to commend "Ben" our tour guide, was very informative and considerate of all passengers and he was very entertaining. He was also very knowledgeable and shared his knowledge of the Island and its' people with us.
bring food and water. It's a long day. Also, fly GO airline. You leave Kona and Oahu an hour earlier than the Hawaiian flights. You have to get to the airport at the same time, and believe me, that extra hour means a lot by the end of the day.
Trip was great, Bus driver (Nappy) was fun and full of information. Only disappointment was the Punch Bowl, could only drive through, couldn't stop no opportunity for pictures etc
the driver/guide was EXCELLENT!! I believe his name was "Lou". highly enjoyed the Pearl harbor trip..would have preferred more time at Pearl Harbor and less time at the other events..this was my only regret!
Was good value when you reflect on the arrangements and logistics. Made a visit to Pearl Harbour (primary reason) simple to do - having seen the time allocations and special buses that you would need to undertake if going it alone, the Viator trip made this easy. Only reason for dropping one star is that we would have like twice the time allocated to visiting the battleship Missorouri. The downtown tour into Waikiki was entertaining and the guide/driver was enthustiastic and knew his history ! impressive
