A tour not to be missed. Can be highly emotional. What is amazing are the visitors. At the Visitors Center and on the launches they are boisterous, but the moment they enter the Memorial visitors become solemn and quiet. The newly redesigned Visitor Center has many displays about Hawaii and Pearl Harbor in 1941. Make sure you go through all the areas.
This was an incredible humbling experience, our guide Gar was absolutely wonderful and very knowledgable about the history of the memorial, Pearl Harbour and even provided fun facts about Hawaii. He was very funny and extremely friendly, I highly recommend this tour and especially Gar!
Excellent trip and tour guide. Guy was awesome and wouldn't change a thing. Very informative and knowledgeable.
The guide was delightful and very entertaining. His account of history was very enlightening. I enjoyed his sense of humor. A highlight was seeing Ernie Pyle,s grave at the National Cemetery! Our guide made history come to life. He should replace the high school teachers.Thanks
This was an excellent tour with an informative and friendly driver who educated and entertained us to and from Pearl Harbour and the Arizona Memorial. The Museum and the Memorial were informative and reflective. I urge all who visit Honolulu to take the time to visit. I would highly recommend this tour.
A must see! Knowledgeable driver. Good tour. Would go again if I wanted to see the memorial again
Was a very moving day and great leaving the driving to someone else. Good pick up and drop off.

Very awestruck especially at the Arizona Memorial.
Good trip. We enjoyed our driver/guide. She shared more than we could have ever gotten by reading pamphlet. Moving experience.
As a Veteran, this was truly a highlight of the day. The event was a positive event.
I highly recommend this tour -- it was everything we were looking for and MORE! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Its a very good way to learn more about Honolulu and cultural history and, of course, the tour of Pearl Harbor was very, very moving. HIGHLY RECOMMJEND!
Fantastic trip, loved the experience, great tour guide, amazing talking to a veteran of Pearl Harbour.
This was a good all round trip. We were lucky that the weather was good enough to visit the Arizona memorial, as the wind picked up and we were told it may not go ahead. It was a very interesting place and although we are from the UK, we got a sense of what the experience meant to the Americans there. We would definitely recommend this tour. The pick up from the hotel went very smoothly.
Our driver was great: informative, humorous, and courteous. The Arizona Memorial is extraordinarily memorable and touching as is The Punchbowl National Cemetery. If you visit Hawaii do not miss this tour! ... Bob
This tour was amazing! So moving and humbling to be on the grounds of the pearl harbor attack. I only wish we could have had a few more minutes to check out the main site before we had to go see the movie and then go to the memorial. Over all...I would highly recommend this tour!
Pearl Harbor is a must see and this tour is a great way of seeing it.
Coco our bus driver / tour guide was fabulous, he was really informative and knowledgeable. This made the tour go very smoothly. He also had a very good sense of humour.
This tour was excellent and the highlight of our brief stay in Oahu. We were told and indeed found that the island is a big city with a beach and an average beach at best in my opinion, as a South Floridian. However, we had an excellent and very informative guide. The stops and drive were nice but the best component for sure was the Pearl Harbor and Arizona Memorial portion! Extremely moving film with original film footage and even more powerful Memorial. The exhibits on site were interesting. My only slight criticism is that we almost had too much time on the site. There is only limited junk food to eat which was at least reasonably priced, little air conditioned space to relax in. There was a museum and a ship that you could walk on which was an extra charge, which I found a bit offensive. Everything should have been included in the price of the excursion. Overall, an absolute must see, and do not miss historical memorial. Just eat a big breakfast and plan on a late lunch!
