Pearl Harbor is very informative, humbling and definitely a worthwhile stop when you visit Oahu. It is a long day so wear comfortable clothing and shoes but well worth walking through history and honoring those who endured this tragedy.
I gave this a 1 star rating for several reasons:
Pearl Harbor opens at 7 am, we were the last group pick up at 7:30 am on this tour. However, we did not arrive until 9 am or later due to having to pick up a tourist arriving at the airport from a different island! We would have appreciated having the full day at Pearl as there is so much to see and absorb. This company needs to figure out a better system to accommodate these "commuting" tourists!
We also do not believe we benefited much from booking this tour and paying the high price - could have taken a separate means of transportation and purchased one of the all inclusive tickets at the visitor center, thus gaining more time at Pearl in addition to saving ourselves considerable money.
Having booked tours through Viator in the past, we thought this would be great - they may want to reconsider working with this tour company. We would not recommend booking this tour.
Not worth this high cost.
What a fabulous day! We had a terrific driver that was a wealth of information about the events of Dec7. He was very accommodating and gave us grace at tips so we had great seats and didn't miss one single thing. The van was comfortable and we had a good group. Would definitely recommend using Viator for this excursion!!
We did this in 2015 but this was at the top of our list to do and it was so worth it! The guide/driver was very good and informative and helpful. It was very impressive to see the USS Arizona Memorial, the USS Missouri Battleship and the USS Bowfin Submarine as well as the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. It was a worthwhile experience!
