Very interesting tour. Worth doing again next time we visit Oahu. Our guide was very knowledgeable and his comments were highly appreciated.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

Beautiful sights. And the tour of the Pearl Harbor Memorial. So humbling. And we were blessed to be able to have met and spoke with an actual survivor. He gave us a couple minutes of his time to talk, and then he autographed his book for us, and took a picture with us. He was 99 years old.
To be in the presence of an actual War HERO.
