The tour was great. The weather and the traffic cooperated. I would like to return to Pearl Harbor again to spend more time in the museums and enjoy the submarine tour, but it was the correct amount of time for most people. The "heads up" hints the drive shared were most helpful. The information and the stop in the city were nice. I would have liked to be able to get out and spend a little more time at the "Punch Bowl".
The whole trip was very organized. The crew was very helpful and we saw a lot of whales. We were explained everything about the whales their migration patterns, breeding grounds how they raise their calfs
Truly believe driver went right past us in the morning and picked up others before arriving to pick us up over 20 minutes late. Too little time available to eat lunch. Driver not subtle at all in asking for tips. Enjoyed visit to Arizona Memorial and tour of Missouri (parts of the trip where our driver wasn't allowed).
The tour not only is spectacular, but our guide Shanon was fun and very knowledgable about Hawaii and the history. He was very kind and considerate and made the tour unforgettable. If this is your first time in Hawaii I definitely recommend this tour.
This was our first time visiting Pearl Harbor and it was on my huaband’s bucket list. We had a great time and the tour gave us plenty of time to explore. Reynold was our driver and he provided a great amount of history to keep us informed. The tour on the Missouri was great and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. We had time to visit the Bowfin, own expense, which was quite interesting. Reynolds drove us around after the tour of Pearl Harbor and pointed out areas of interest which we wouldn’t have seen if we had not been on this tour. Definitely recommend this tour!
This was an AMAZING tour. My wife and I loved it. We had ample time to explore the Arizona Memorial. We also had enough time to see the USS Missouri. We were disappointed that we couldn't stop at the Punchbowl but because previous tourists desecrated the tombstones tour busses are no longer allowed to stop. Being a veteran I was appalled at this behavior. Our tour guide Aaron was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He is a great asset to this company. Thank you for an amazing time.
I had an amazing guide that knew the history of not only Pearl Harbor and Honolulu but of the whole Hawaiian history, but he made it so interesting for all of us. He answered any questions that we had and even the trees and flowers. It was by far the best money I spent in the whole ten days I was in Hawaii. Alex never seemed to be bothered by traffic or delays caused by us passengers. He was so patient with all of us. I have totally recommended the tour to my friends back in Iowa.
I guess we had an older bus because there were so many who took the tour. It rattled and we couldn't hear the guide too well. He had a soft, soothing voice that put a few to sleep. The Battleship was very interesting, but we could've done that on our own. It says no waiting in line, but we did. 6am start so that the line is short...but we still waited. I would just go on our own if I do it again. But get there at 7am.
