What You Can Expect

Honolulu Sightseeing Tour Including Pearl Harbor and USS Arizona Memorial

View Pearl Harbor

Hop aboard the double-decker bus in Waikiki in the morning. Then, settle into your seat and enjoy a relaxing ride past the must-see highlights of Honolulu.

First, visit the USS Arizona Memorial and Pearl Harbor, where you'll re-live the moment that catapulted America into World War II. At the Arizona Memorial Visitor Center, watch film footage from the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack and browse the historic artifacts on display. Ride the Navy launch across Pearl Harbor to board the USS Arizona Memorial, which marks the resting place of the 1,102 sailors and marines who died that tragic day. Accessible only by boat, the memorial straddles the sunken hull of the battleship.

Your journey continues aboard the double-decker bus with a drive through National Cemetery of the Pacific. Located just north of Downtown Honolulu in a long-extinct volcano called Punchbowl Crater, this cemetery -- listed on the National Register of Historic Places -- is the final resting place for thousands of veterans, and commemorates many of the soldiers who died at Pearl Harbor. Your guide will also point out the Honolulu Memorial and Courts of the Missing.

The final portion of your tour takes you through the city's historic district. Pass 'Iolani Palace -- the only royal palace on American soil -- as well as Kawaiahao Church, the State Library and Archives, the State Capitol, the statue of King Kamehameha, Honolulu Hale and the Mission Houses Museum.

Throughout your tour, your guide will offer informative, entertaining commentary about the sights you see. Enjoy unobstructed views and feel the wind in your hair from the open-air top deck, or enjoy the cozy comfort of the indoor lower level.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This tour was great. Riding a double decked bus was fantastic. The weather was beautiful. Our tour guide was awesome. He knew so much history of the area. He was also very friendly. Unfortunately we couldn't go onto the Arizona because the dock was under repair due to the USS Mercy hitting the boat dock and putting it out of commission for almost two weeks. Seeing Honolulu the way we did and driving through the Veteran's Memorial Park was serene. Our grown children really enjoyed this tour also.
