Reviews
Start your Pearl Harbor tour with hotel pickup in Waikiki by air-conditioned coach. Your full-day tour includes admissions to each attraction, including the USS

Missouri and USS

Arizona Memorial.

Your first stop is the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center to see artifacts from the bombing that propelled the US into WWII. Then take a ride in a Navy launch across Pearl Harbor to the USS

Arizona Memorial, the final resting place of the 1,777 crew members who lost their lives on December 7, 1941. The national memorial, which commemorates the attack on Pearl Harbor, spans the mid-portion of the sunken battleship.**

Next, you'll take a guided tour of the USS

Missouri. The ship served from WWII through Desert Storm and was the site of the 1945 Japanese surrender to the Allies.

After an intriguing look through US war history, return to your coach for a historic tour of Honolulu with drive-by's  Kawaiahao Church, the Hawaii State Archives and State Public Library, the famous statue of King Kamehameha, Honolulu Hale, and the Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives (formerly called the Mission Houses Museum).

You'll also see Iolani Palace, the only royal palace on American soil, and take a drive through the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, known as Punchbowl Cemetery, before hotel drop-off.

I really enjoyed this tour. It was well organised and everything went smoothly throughout the day. The guide/bus driver gave overviews of historical importance that fleshed out the importance of of the different sites visited. The Arizona Memorial was very moving and the Missouri offers free guided tours that were excellent. I would highly recommend this tour.

I loved our trip to Pearl Harbor. My family and I learned so much about what happened on December 7th, 1941 and why it happened. Everyone that goes to Oahu should take this excursion to Pearl Harbor in my opinion. Piilani, with the Polynesian Adventure Tours, was very friendly and knowledgeable. She always made sure that we knew where we should be and what time we should be there. The bus was very comfortable. We were always offered water upon entering the bus. The banana bread at the beginning of the tour was a great touch. Thank you for a great day on Oahu.

Wow, is what I have to say of first impression, Our morning started with our driver Gideon picking us up on time at our designated pick up location greeting us with a warm welcome smile and a slice of homemade bread and bottle water, in a beautiful air conditioned bus, followed by a great tour of the area and great heritage background stories. Dropped us off to a fantastic restaurant for lunch he even came in and sat down with us followed with more stories and of course a few songs on his ukulele. Then escorted us to the tour without waiting in line. It is a fast tour but we had plenty of time to see everything that was included.
