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
Extremely good tour, very well organised, caring guide.
Emotive place that it seems wrong to say that we enjoyed it, but we did.
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!
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.
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.
Every American should take this tour to understand our history!!!
Fabulous tour, amazing driver with very knowledgable commentary, plenty of time to do your own thing and take photos. Easy website for booking and excellent follow up

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.
The Arizona tour was as powerful as I had heard it was. The Missouri was really cool, if only for its massiveness! We got to go in the bridge, too. The displays in the onshore museums were top notch. Our guide was the best!
We signed up for the tour of the Missouri, Arizona, Pearl Harbor and the Punchbowl, but did not get the tour of the Missouri. We called the office, explained the situation and got the tour the next day. All the tours were great and we would do it again.
I would highly recommend this tour company. The trip was fantastic and our tour director was the best we have ever had. The information we received was invaluable, interesting and funny!
Excellent tour. Highly organized and the tour guide/driver was highly knowledgeable.
This is a must-see attraction! Moving experience, well-organized and informative. Our tour guide was personable and shared first-hand stories of the bombing from his own family history. Highly recommend!
