Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

Start your trip with pickup from your Waikiki hotel at 6:30am. Your tour operator will provide the exact pickup schedule at the time of reconfirmation. Proceed by air-conditioned coach to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, the starting point for your visit to this famous naval base and home to a variety of artifacts documenting the infamous attack that catapulted the United States into WWII.

Head next by Navy launch to the USS Arizona Memorial, the final resting place for 1,777 of the boat’s crew who lost their lives here on December 7, 1941. This national monument sits over the top of the submerged remnants of the ship’s mid-section.

A wonderful piece of History kept alive for others to see. Even though I am not American - I found it very emotional.

Our tour guide was awesome and made the trip fun and informational. We had an hour to roam around before going to see the video there is no a/c in the theatre so it got hot, then we went to the Arizona Memorial we didn't think the memorial was going to happen because they had shut the boats down 5min before the video due to wind. They started the boats back up right before the video was done. You only get about 8min at the Arizona Memorial, so make sure you take the photos you want as quickly as you can!
At the USS Missouri, they give you a quick tour of the outside and let you roam the inside independently by visual guide. Make sure you follow the green arrows and the map because you can get lost and miss some of it. After the Missouri tour, they take you to the Punchbowl Cemetery. You aren't allowed to stop there, so it's just a drive through.
They do NOT let you bring in bags to the Memorial site if they are more than 2Dx4Hx9L appx if you bring bags you have to lock them up in the bag area and you don't get them back until the end of the Missouri tour. Also, there isn't much to eat for a meal at the USS Missouri without spending 12-14 per person.
All-in-all it was a great tour and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a history lesson.

The tour of both the Arizona Memorial and the USS Missouri were both great. I thought the film about what happened on December 7,1941 and the events leading up to that day was expecially insightful.

A must see. We had Ed as a tour guide and he added alot to the tour with his facts about what happened on and around Dec. 7, 1941. One of the highlights of the tour was meeting survivors of the attack. Another, was the film footage and plaques everywhere.

Our guide gave a very knowledgable lecture as he led us through the events of Dec. 7, 1941. I was glad that he was able to tell the younger members of the tour how and what happened that day. The tour was the highlight of our stay.
