The tour was very good. It gave us everything we expected. We were especially fortunate to have Ernal as our tour guide. He was very entertaining and gave us a terrific tour. Thank you.
This is a must see! Seeing/reading the history was amazing and to know that so many died but then going out to the memorial was surreal. I don't know about others but I could feel the presence of those men whom are entombed there, this place is amazing. Only draw back was the short time we spent at the memorial but in saying that if they didn't keep to a strict time slot then many wouldn't get to visit it.
Very emotional trip So glad my husband and I was finally able to see this. Tour bus was on time but they need to put the name of the tour up in the front window. Bus driver was very funny and courteous It was fun on the bus A must to do when in Oahu.
Wonderful tour and Ben was awesome. Funny and informative. Thanks cousin Ben

When you come to Hawaii the first time you HAVE to go to Pearl Harbor. We were there the week of Memorial Weekend, and it was the 75th anniversary. I really thought that it would be more busy because of this, but I don't think it really was. It was busy, but not crazy. The Arizona Memorial was just as I expected, sad and amazing all at the same time. When you see the blips of oil come to the surface it's really surreal. You take a boat over to the memorial and you only have enough time until the next boat comes to drop of more people and then you load the boat to go back to the visitor center. The visitor center also had a submarine that you could tour. We didn't pay extra to do that. Unfortunately the day we were there it was HOT. Hot and Humid. UGH! Not the temperature you want when you are touring a big metal boat! But regardless of that, it was a great tour. Ed was our driver and he was awesome! He took very good care of us, and was very knowledgeable. I really learned a lot from Ed. Kind of a pain that you are not able to take anything into Pearl Harbor. No purses, no camera bags nothing. Be prepared for this ahead of time. Ed did tell us we could leave whatever we wanted on the bus while we toured but I don't think anyone did. You take a bus over to the Missouri from the visitor center. We took a guided tour on the boat and it was good but at times it was difficult to hear the guide because of other distractions. After our 30 minute guided tour we roamed the boat. Be prepared if you have to be back at your tour bus at a specific time that you get back to the departure area with plenty of time. There were a lot of people waiting for the bus to take you back to the visitor center. We barely made it on the bus had to stand and we were there with plenty of time, just a lot of people waiting to do the same thing. We really enjoyed this tour and you will too!
I had felt such sadness when we toured the Memorial. I was truly touched by reliving this tragic history lesson. Nevertheless, I was so glad we choose this your. I will never forget how I felt at the Memorial...Rest-in-Peace and God Bless these men and the families.
Great tour. Because of rain we didn't get to finish touring the Missouri but a great day nonetheless .
This tour was great. The driver was fantastic, his name is Garfunkel. He was fantastic entertainment and told personal stories. What an awesome and moving tour of the Pearl Harbor area and the Missouri battleship. Would highly recommend this trip.
We thought the tour of Might Mo was incredible. So filled with history with guides who were incredibly well informed. The Pearl Harbor museum was informative, moving. I only wish, selfishly, that there were fewer on the US Arizona Memorial. It was too distracting to have so many people in such an important place. All in all, we enjoyed and honored our visit.
An excellent moving tribute to those that gave so much for their country.
Great tour, i would have liked to be able to spend a little time at the Palace, but parking there was not allowed.
Excellent tour. Our guide, Ben was knowledgable and personable. Would have loved to stop long enough to see inside of palace...
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!!!
Tour guide was excellent. Visit to USS Arizona Memorial was moving. Enjoyed seeing the battleship USS Missouri.
The tour was fantastic, really enjoyed all the history of the area as well as of course Pearl Harbour. Driver Garfield was brilliant, very knowledgeable and funny, pick up was on time and very well organised.
Excellent guide, a unique experience visiting this impressive site. So worth making it a must do when visiting Hawaii.
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
