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 buffs will especially appreciate this in-depth visit to the site of one of America’s most famous military moments.

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. Travel by air-conditioned coach to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, the starting point for your visit to the 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, where 1,777 of the boat’s crew lost their lives on December 7, 1941. This national monument sits over 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 top 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.

Very somber but awe inspiring trip. Cuzin Kimo was the tour guide and he definitely made the trip. Extremely knowledgeable, personable some of his jokes were lame Highly recommend this trip. Will give you perspective of the sacrifice laid at the feet of freedom. If you can request Cuzin Kimo definitely do it!!!

MUST DO. Cousin Koko was an awesome tour guide. We were able to look around Pearl Harbor, go onto the Arizona and do the Missouri tour. BRILLIANT is an understatement. We were so moved we went back and did the USS Bowfin Submarine the next day.

The tour was great as well as the tour guide. The only thing we had a problem with is when the driver was dropping everyone off at their hotels a person said she was picked up at the Aquq Pacific Monarch which is our hotel yet we had to go to another hotel for our pickup. Why

Extremely good tour, very well organised, caring guide.

Our tour guide Ed was great! Ed was thoroughly organized and knowledgable about Pearl Harbor and the Memorials. It is a great asset that Ed is a volunteer tour guide at the USS Missouri when not giving tours. I would recommend this tour to all my family, friends and anyone looking to truly appreciate the Pearl Harbor experience. Thank Ed!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

Overall Good combination of activities although, could've used another 20 min at both Pearl Harbor and USS Missouri because we didn't get to view all the museums P.H. and below deck displays. Tour could be enhanced by extending length of event and adding the aviation museum since you're already on general site with US Missouri? Garfield was a very personable and knowledgeable tour host. As a multi-generational islander, his direct family experiences related to Pearl Harbor events were an unexpected,yet respected complement to the entire tour content. Thank you for this well organized tour and memorable experience.
