    You start with a video short of the attack. After the show, you get on a ferry and they tour you around the harbor where you see the memorial and ships and the docking posts for the other ships.  Even though we didn’t get to set foot onto the USS Arizona Memorial, they still put us on a ship and we rode up to the USS Arizona and had a moment of silence next to the memorial.  It was still surreal to be able to see the actual USS Arizona lie underneath the memorial.

    Belinda

    There are a couple museums you can visit to see the history of Pearl Harbor and about the events that took place that day.  Overall great tour. The movie was a good overall history and background of the attack. Go checkout history and pay your respects.

    Great exhibits covering various aspects of WWII. Also, the short movie before boarding the boat to the Memorial was very moving. The memorial is surreal. The actual USS Arizona memorial was closed due to the dock being unsafe. However, we were able to take the ferry that gets you close to the memorial.

    This is one of the places you must visit while you’re in Hawaii. So much history here. Before you get on the ferry, you get to watch a 20 minute video on Pearl Harbor. The video is awesome and very well put together. There are 2 mini museums you can go to while waiting for the tours or just visit in general.

    The Pearl Harbor visitor center is a number one spot to check out if your in Honolulu. I would recommend stopping by to soak in some history and beautiful scenery.  5 stars for all the men who died on December 7th.this place is amazing . It’s beautiful and makes you realize everything you should be grateful for.

    Our family loved our experience at the Pearl Harbor (kids age 8 & 10 years old). It was a great experience and all is nicely organized. There’s a lot of information: walk around and observe, movies, panels, audio, etc.

    You watch a short film & take a boat ride around pearl harbor & learn about the history of Pearl Harbor during WW2. Why the Japanese attacked, when & how it happened. It was very interesting & educational.  This is a must visit when on Oahu.

    The Pearl Harbor Memorial is a place that should be on every American’s bucket list. Watching the movies and reading the books doesn’t quite touch your patriotic soul until you have actually set foot here. If you’re super into historical things. This is a good place for you.

    Finally got to see this amazing memorial,as a Vietnam/vet-Australian army-I felt it my duty to get there one day and at last I made it. A must do experience for all ages. Historically interesting and quite an emotion provoking experience.

    Anybody going to Oahu should go on this tour especially Americans. You will learn some history about that fateful day, December 07, 1941, including what lead up to it. Only a small amount of the Arizona is seen but enough to let everyone know what happened there in 1941, now its a monument to all those brave seamen forever and very well maintained.

    The Pearl Harbor tour is a must see in Oahu. They have some small museum-type set ups that you can explore on the grounds. These were very informative. I also thought that the video they show at the beginning was very well done and gave a good background on Pearl Harbour. For one low price, you spend the day learning how history changed the world. You will silently pay respect to all the lives sacrificed for today’s freedom.

    Must Go if on Island! Pearl Harbor is symbolic of the sacrifice that has been and is made by women and men who live to serve. Awesome place and memorial. So glad I went and heard the story and saw the remains. It was a history lesson that was enjoyable!

    The tragedy in 1941 has a deeper meaning after seeing the memorials and remains as well as the markers for the ships that were downed. Every person in United States needs to go to pro harbor my father was a World War II vet flew over 70 missions or B 24 bomber this pearl harbor is just fantastic

    The whole tour was excellent. We were only on the island for 3 nights and had we not done this tour we would have missed out on a lot. The tour of the Pearl Harbor memorials, including Arizona and Battleship Missouri, is so memorable and important to see. We were also taken to see a bit of downtown Honolulu and Punchbowl Cemetery. Top this with a tour guide answering all your questions and pointing out cool things all while making everyone laugh / enjoy themselves…is needless to say, “worth it”!

    Our guide, Noah, was well informed and very entertaining. He had the whole bus laughing many times. He went out of his way to show us the “little extras” not included on the tour. The tour goes through Honolulu and Pearl Harbor to see the USS Arizona Memorial, very touching. And we also saw the USS Missouri.

    We had Bill as our driver/tour guide for the Pearl Harbor Tour from Ko Olina. He was quite knowledgeable and funny, gave us a lot of insider tips as he’s born and raised in Hawaii. The bus arrived timely at hotel. He showed us fruit growing on trees along the way, places of importance like President Obama’s old high school and other points of interest. Pearl Harbor was pretty darn awesome. Learned a lot from the exhibits and short video.

    The video they play before you go to the Arizona monument is the most moving part of all. We did the museum and sat through the videos offered there too. They again are great historical recollections and are very moving. This is something all Americans should see.
