A very moving and wonderful tour. The Missouri Mighty 'Mo is HUGE!!! The Arizona monument gives you a shiver to realise you are atop a sunken tomb for so many brave souls. The tears of the Arizona are still flowing and give you goosebumps. If you are interested in history you HAVE to go !!!!

We were fortunate enough to complete this tour on September 2nd, on the anniversary on the signing of the surrender.
Words cannot really describe the feelings experienced through out the tour, but it is very worth it. Here we have two symbols the start of the war for America and the end of the war.
We would have liked more time to explore both locations and the Missouri was undergoing repairs, which will allow better exploration of the ship but it only gives a reason to go back!

I really enjoyed myself and the Tour company picked me up on time and then we picked up others and went straight to Pearl Harbor after the last pick up. Our Tour Guide/Driver was nice and engaging. I wish the tour provided more time at the Arizona so I could have spent more time at the Pearl Harbor Museum and have time to speak to one of the Survivors. Not the Tour Company's fault they needed to stay on a schedule and to coordinate with the other Tour companies that were there. Next time I will go back just to spend time in the Museum and to read everything. The Mighty Mo was interesting, but I still wish we spent a little more time at Memorial and a little less time at the Missouri. You can get free tickets to Pearl Harbor Visitor center and to the Memorial but you have to get them months in advance. Once they are all given out for that day, you can't go. I waited to late and took the tour and I don't regret it. Also, I didn't want a rent a car while I was there because I was going on a cruise the following day and didn't want to pay parking at the hotel.

Our tour guide was outstanding. He not only gave us a great tour of Pearl Harbor but also of Waikiki. The guide made the trip so worth it. I would highly recommend doing this tour. I think it took the hassles out of driving, parking, paying, knowing where to go and when. It made it a peaceful day that allowed us to focus on all that we were seeing.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Great tour of the USS Arizona Memorial, USS Missouri and cemetery. Tour guide knew a lot about the history of the surrounding suburbs and landmarks which kept the travel between each location interesting.
Plenty of time at the Arizona memorial to see all of the historical items on display and take the boat out to the memorial itself.
We didn't get enough time at the USS Missouri to see the whole ship but that wasn't the fault of the main tour guide, but due to the USS Missouri guide talking for too long at each of the main sections of the ship.

Our experience was excellent. We were picked up at our hotel at the exact time quoted and our driver/guide, Barbara, was knowledgeable and funny. On the way to and from Pearl Harbor she gave us a lot of local history. Once we arrived at the base we were ushered through the gates and given the layout. Our experience at the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial was so profound and moving, it's hard not to feel the spirits of the men resting there.
Following that, we drove over to Ford Island to see the U.S.S. Oklahoma Memorial and then tour the U.S.S. Missouri.....another amazing experience.
We do not hesitate to recommend this tour.
