This was an excellent tour. Our guide 'Ed', just plain Ed (Ha), was a great guide. Very informative and he was great at giving directions and keeping track of us all. The experience is not to be missed. I would not go to Honolulu without including this tour. Very informative and very sobering. Everything on the tour went beautifully. I would highly recommend.

What better way to understand about WWII than to visit this historical place... and it truly was emotional in most parts especially when you get to comprehend the significance of every part of this place.

Found it a bit difficult to locate the actual tour bus with the company name on it but once we found it, things only got better. Our bus driver was very informative and gave us some history of Honolulu on the drive the Pearl Harbor.

Our tour guide Gerry at the Pacific Aviation Museum was very good. He gave us an insight of what it was like to be there on the fateful day as we walked along the where the planes would have been on that day. I enjoyed having the tour guide there to share some of his stories as well.
