    There’s a lot of stories, sights, ships and memorials to see at Pearl Harbor. The movie about Pearl harbor that they show first really was informative and educational then the boat ride to the memorial and the time spent there was a very quiet time and everyone was very respectful. I felt very proud to be an American and am very grateful for our military both then and now. The tour around the island just brightened everything up. Such a beautiful place! This is the perfect combo tour.

    Really worth it – especially if your guide is as knowledgeable as Jim! He could answer all questions
    The small museum is good for understanding the scope and organization of the attack. This is first class and worth spending time to come and understand the area and events surrounding the monument. Then to top it all off, you go around the island. Wow! I could live here! Make sure you get some pineapple ice cream when you make it to the Dole Plantation. Yum

    A great place to know what happened during the Pearl Harbor attack and how it had affected many lives and how America become involved in WWII. The bus drivers were excellent – very informative, very friendly and fun. Everyone in our group was very grateful for all the help Michael and the rest of the crew bestowed on us. Excellent service! A sad and solemn place but a must visit while in Honolulu. Afterwards we learned so much about Oahu as we toured around the island. Crazy to know that there was an attack on such an amazingly scenic island.

    Pearl Harbor was great! Imagine being there 7th December 1941 I never realised it only took 2 hours for the Japanese to destroy all the US fleet. Over 1100 lives were lost there. Interesting and Fascinating to learn. Then we got to see the island of Oahu. This is a great tour to hit all the hot spots.

    This was our first trip to Hawaii and we booked this tour online before we left. It was a very smooth process. The tour size was very good and bus was roomy, didnt feel squeezed in. The tour hit so many highlights around the island, somethings we wouldnt have found on our own. Our driver/tour guide was well versed on every aspect of Hawaii & endevoured to answer any questions from tour passengers. Oahu is beautiful, but Pearl Harbor was the highlight for us.

    We decided to take tour which encompassed all of the major sites in one day. Our guide was simply sensational – a real character. He told us wonderful stories about history and folk lore and we were simply amazed at the value for money. If you want to know about Oahu, this tour is a must. Glad we got to see Pearl Harbor, the Dole Plantation, and many other places. The picnic style lunch was delicious!

    If you want to know about Oahu, this tour is a must. Our guide was Bruce, a retired school teacher and passionate Hawaii aficionado. If we had just seen the sights, the tour would have been good enough, but Bruce’s excellent and amusing commentary made it extra special. We had a fantastic time on this all inclusive tour.

    We did this tour just recently and had Kaps as our guide. He was simply sensational – a real character. He told us wonderful stories about history and folk lore and we were simply amazed at the value for money. All of the sites were excellent and we enjoyed the tour. Kind of like cruise port visits, you got a taste of everything, but not a full portion! Left room for another visit. Pearl Harbor was eductional and moving.
