On time pick up started a great day tour. Our driver Mike entertained us with facts & stories of life in Hawaii. The city tour was a great way to see the Honolulu. Pearl Harbour was awesome Mike had us informed of where & when etc to see the main attractions. A great history lesson for all. Mike had us all safely back on time.

We enjoyed our trip to Pearl Harbor! This was a very interesting piece of history that we were able to experience in person. The memorial was somber and seeing all of those names was overwhelming-such a sad time in 1941! The city highlights simply had us viewing sites from the bus with a description from our bus driver. We were able to get out once to view historical landmarks such as the statue of King Kamehameha and Iolani Palace. The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific was nice to see from the bus and the grounds/trees were beautiful!

The driver had a lot of information and was funny. Unfortunately it was raining so touring the city we did not get out of the bus. The palace was not open due to Covid. Pearl Harbor was interesting and the Park Ranger on the Arizona Memorial was very informative and you could tell he liked his job and willing to share his information.
