Full description

Explore the dramatic events of Pearl Harbor on a full-day tour of Oahu, and visit the USS Arizona Memorial, and the scene of the eventual Japanese surrender.

The intuitive Visitor Center at Pearl Harbor displays an intriguing collection of artifacts that survived the attack. Cruise by navy launch across the harbor to pay respects at the memorial dedicated to the sunken USS Arizona and the 1,000 sailors who perished there.

Continue the wartime theme with a guided tour and commentary on board the historic battleship USS Missouri. This was the site of the Japanese surrender to the Allies in 1945 and there’s a wealth of historic naval artifacts and personal effects on view.

History buffs can journey even further back in time, exploring the many historic landmarks of downtown Honolulu. The main attraction is the unmistakable ‘Iolani Palace, the only “royal” residence in the USA.

Not-to-be-missed photo opportunities include the prominent statue of King Kamehameha the Great and Kawaiahao Church. Then, drive through the Punchbowl National Cemetery before returning to your hotel.

Fantastic tour with a great tour and knowledgeable tour guide

We went on the the full day Pearl Harbor and Oahu day tour and had a wonderful time. It was simply amazing to see and experience everything that went on in Pearl Harbor first hand. A remarkable experience which we will never forget. Our tour guide Lolita was simply amazing! So knowledgeable about Hawaii's history and its attractions. Definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Hawaii.

Impressive tour, good driver and good guide

The driver and the guide did an excellent job of giving us a better understanding of both old and new Hawaii. The length of the tour was ideal for getting an introduction to the locally relevant historical events. The tour tends to cater to American clients. No mention was made of the multilingual headsets available at Pearl harbor. The process of gathering the participants from the various hotels needs to be optimized. 1.5 hours for 16 hotels is too long.

Kaleo was a fun tour guide, but he also knew when to be solemn about the Arizona Memorial. He gave us lots of interesting information throughout the tour.
