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

Start your Pearl Harbor tour with hotel pickup in Waikiki by air-conditioned coach. Your full-day tour includes skip-the-line admission to each attraction, including the USS Missouri and USS Arizona Memorial.

Your first stop is the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center to see artifacts from the bombing that propelled the US into WWII. Then take a ride in a Navy launch across Pearl Harbor to the USS Arizona Memorial, the final resting place of the 1,777 crew members who lost their lives on December 7, 1941. The national memorial, which commemorates the attack on Pearl Harbor, spans the mid-portion of the sunken battleship.

Next, you'll take a guided tour of the USS Missouri. The ship served from WWII through Desert Storm and was the site of the 1945 Japanese surrender to the Allies.

After an intriguing look through US war history, return to your coach for a drive through downtown Honolulu. Your guide makes stops at Kawaiahao Church, the Hawaii State Archives and State Public Library, the famous statue of King Kamehameha, Honolulu Hale, and the Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives (formerly called the Mission Houses Museum).

You'll also see Iolani Palace, the only royal palace on American soil, and take a drive through the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, known as Punchbowl Cemetery, before hotel drop-off.

This tour was great! Our tour guide, Cody, had a vast knowledge of Pearl Harbor and all things Hawai'ian, and was so funny at times, to lighten our day after a somber trip...Hawaii is beautiful and would def use Viator again!

Our bus guide Garfield was really good and told us lots of information and facts throughout the day. We arrived at Arizona memorial for 8am so we payed for a self guided audio tour of the exhibitions and outside areas which I think should be part of the tour. We had a timed ticket of 9.45 for the short film clip before boarding the boat to the memorial. So the audio tour fitted well into the time allocated. After the visit we went to Missouri where we were free to wonder on our own or have a 30 min tour which we did and then free time. It was very hot on the boat with little shelter without going inside. Off the ship there are a couple of places to get food including a food truck with a great meal deal of a chicken sandwich with salad, macaroni cheese ,pineapple slice, mini cookies and refillable sodas, which were much needed in the heat. After we were back on the bus for a visit to punch bowl and a tour around Honolulu visiting on the coach the main sights. A good day worth a visit.

My friend and I were taken aback at the respect and dedication that was given to the lives that were lost in that surprise attack. It gave us a detailed insight as to what had happened. I do sincerely recommend this tour all visitors. Veronica Perry

This activity was amazing. Our only regret was, because we were with a tour group, our time was limited and we had to rush. Next trip we would go there again but independently. The tour guides on the ship really made everything understandable and interesting and no questions went unanswered. We highly recommend this activity, especially if you are from military upbringing.
