One can not go to Honolulu and go to Pearl Harbor! The lines there can get long and they some times run out of tickets for the Memorial. So booking a tour is the way to go for sure. This tour also included a trip up to The Punchbowl. What a beautiful and very humbling day.

One of the great historical and moving destinations on the planet. Have visited twice and would certainly visit again if in Hawaii. Highly recommended.
Tour guide was terrific Memorial, Pearl Harbor history and Punchbowl was very informative
Great day and great tour. Really worth a visit it understand the history of WW2.
Well worth the experience. I've seen this memorial 40 years ago, but this time it was different. I'm old now and the Arizona Memorial was very emotional to say the least. I've never been to Punchbowl, but it was very beautiful and moving also. I would recommend doing both because it's worth it and doesn't cost much more than to do the Arizona Memorial alone. Highly recommend this tour.
Well organized and very informative - a great overview of Honolulu from the Punchbowl. Bus driver/narrator was excellent.
First class. Pearl Harbor is a must ,but you also get a history tour of Honolulu. 10 out of 10.
The tour was very informative and moving and our driver, Monty, did a great job.
The actual Tour of the Arizona Memorial was impressive, informative and moving. The down side was a inept bus company providing the transportation. As per instructions I called to confirm and was told where to meet and at what time. We were at the designated place early. When the bus was 15 minutes late I called the same local number and was told we where not at the correct place and to wait the driver will be there shortly. The bus came 45 minutes late and then the driver apologized to the other people for OUR mistake. On the return trip he announced the hotels at each stop, never mentioning our hotel or stop. There were 7 in our group we all couldn't have missed this info. Then he once again criticized us and said we would have to walk back he wasn't going to double back to where we got on. The company was Polynesian Adventures. The driver was exceptionally rude and the dispatch person gave out bad information.
There's not much to say that hasn't already been said. This is an awesome memorial and tribute to the many that lost their lives. A must see when in Honolulu. Seeing the USS Arizona and thinking of those entombed is very touching.
Great tour! Amazing to see the Arizona up close. Very emotional and helps you realize that our freedom is not free, people gave their lives so we can have the privileges we have today.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He made the trip to Pearl Harbor very personal by relating the fear the residents of Hawaii in 1941 felt, to the fears felt on 9/11. He was also very respectful of the historic sites we visited. He also was also great in explaining the Hawaiian culture.
The Arizona Memorial is a moving and educational experience, however our 5 stars is for our guide. We unfortunately can't recall her name we are bad with names but she was a native Hawaiian lady who's personal insights and stories about the islands she loves were wonderfully informative and thought provoking. I wondered if she was a school teacher in the past as she was such a well organised pro. Turns out she was an ex-accountant! I could have listened to her all day. What an asset to your company.
Monty was our guide and he did a great job! He was very knowledgeable about the area gave some great information. Length of the tour was just right.
For the significance of seeing Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial, I recommend this trip. I am from Arizona so it holds special meaning for me. Be aware that you only drive through the Punchbowl and do not get out. You can not bring bags to Pearl Harbor. There is an educational display that you will have time to look at either before or after your viewing of the Arizona Memorial. You go to the memorial as a group at an assigned time, not on your own schedule. The bus driver was very chatty and knew her way around Honolulu.
Guide was great we packed a lot into a 1/2 day tour. City drive tour and then a lot of time at Pearl Harbor with priority access to the launch to the USS Arizona. Also a drive through the PunchBowl.
Great tour guide with 30 years of experience and lots stories to share. Some of them were really touching! I enjoyed this trip so much even though I am not US citizen. Its great how Hawaii is cherishing the memory of this unfortunate event in the history.
Tour guide pickup were well on time, well organized, I can recommend Gray Line-Polynesian Adventure they are big and have experience they know what they are doing!
