My Pearl Harbor trip was nothing short of amazing! It was worth every penny. Our driver, who humorously referred to himself as ‘handsome,’ was not only entertaining but also incredibly knowledgeable about history and the local area. Thank you for such a memorable experience.

We had a wonderful experience. Guide was punctual, very knowledgeable and went out of her way to make everyone comfortable. At the end of the tour she felt like family.

Bus was very clean and our guide John did an excellent job keeping us entertained and informed on the ride there and back.

Enjoyed the tour very much. Well organised. RJ was an excellent guide with so much knowledge.

Should have been advised prior to trip the lunch details had xhanged
