Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

Visiting the memorial to those who lost their lives in the attack on Pearl Harbor is a singular experience — it's amazing that you can still see oil on the water over the memorial. This tour is full of fascinating history and the Honolulu city tour afterward is a nice bonus.

What You Can Expect

USS Missouri, Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor and Punchbowl Day Tour

Arizona Memorial, Oahu

Discover the highlights of Pearl Harbor, along with skip the line admission to the USS Missouri and USS Arizona Memorial plus a sightseeing tour of downtown Honolulu during this 7-hour trip. History lovers are sure to enjoy this moving, in-depth visit to the site of one of America’s most famous military moments, followed by a chance to discover some of Honolulu’s top sights.

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.

Continue your Pearl Harbor visit with a stop at the USS Missouri, where you’ll enjoy an in-depth guided tour of one of the most famous (and longest-serving) American battleships in history. The vessel first came into service in WWII, hosted the Japanese surrender to the Allied Forces and saw its last active duty during the 1990s Desert Storm operation.

Following your exploration of Pearl Harbor, continue back to downtown Honolulu for a chance to investigate some of the city’s most famous sights. Among the stops on your Honolulu tour are Kawaiahao Church, the statue of King Kamehameaha, the Hawaii State Archives and State Public Library, the Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives (originally known as Mission Houses Museum) and Honolulu Hale.

Finish your day with a visit to the only royal palace found on American soil at the Iolani Palace and with a visit to the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl Cemetery), followed by a drop-off back at your Waikiki hotel.

This is an excellent tour and my family and I enjoyed it immensely. The memorial was interesting and I was surprised that the Arizone is still so clearly visible. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to visit the Missouri and look into some of the rooms of various ranks, see where the surrender was finalised. Very interesting day

Our guide Ty was well organized and the trip went very smoothly. Ty was very knowledgeable and shared many details that made the trip more enjoyable. USS Missouri was a highlight and the gentleman who spoke on the ship was amazing-a great storyteller. The day was expensive but learned lots.
