Tour Highlights

Tour Description

Visit the most important historical attraction in Hawaii, the Pearl Harbor National Memorial, as part of a small group. Unlike other larger group tours of 30-60 people, this is a small group with only eleven people in a comfortable, new model van that will pick you up for the tour. You do not need to go early in the morning (5:30 am) and wait in line behind thousands of other people to see if you can get an Arizona Memorial Ticket. We have reserved a ticket for the Arizona Memorial for you, which is included for you in this tour (please read our disclaimer about the USS Arizona Memorial ticket). You do not need to worry about an USS Arizona Memorial ticket. The Pearl Harbor, USS Arizona Memorial, and Oahu circle island tour is a full-day tour (about 9 ~ 10 hours). This full-day Pearl Harbor and Circle Island Tour departs from Waikiki Beach hotels. Those staying on any other part of the Island will need to come to the Waikiki Beach area for pick up.

This tour is for people who want to take in the various sights around the Island of Oahu. See many important places on Oahu, including Pearl Harbor, Hawaii’s number one most visited location. The Pearl Harbor Visitor’s Center is home to two museums, “Road to War ” and “Attack”. These museums will provide you with background information regarding the events that led to the attack on Pearl Harbor, as well as details about the attack itself. Take the U.S. Navy shuttle to the Arizona Memorial, which is the resting place for 1,177 American Sailors and Marines who died during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. This tour is the perfect choice for those who want to spend the day taking in the sights that the Island of Oahu has to offer. Stop to view Chinaman’s hat, an Island resembling a Chinese coolie’s hat. Cruise by the famous surfing beaches on Oahu’s North Shore. Stop to view the famous Sunset Beach. Cruise through scenic Haleiwa Town. Stop at the famous Dole Plantation. The Dole Plantation is Hawaii’s second most visited attraction and home of the famous Dole Whip ice cream. On the way back to Waikiki, you will be taken on a short drive-through tour of Downtown Honolulu. You get to see the famous golden statue of Hawaii’s legendary monarch, King Kamehameha the Great. View the famous Iolani Palace, the only Royal Palace on American soil. See the Washington Place, the historic home of Hawaii’s Governors. View the unique architecture of the Hawaii State Capitol building. We will also take you on a drive-through of Punchbowl National Memorial Cemetery, the final resting place of many U.S. service members from WWI to the present.

Our Client’s Reviews

Pick up was right on time in a luxurious van and our driver Tom was great, very professional. Spent the whole day exploring Pearl Harbor and it was absolutely amazing. Highly recommend the full day tour so you can experience everything Pearl Harbor has to offer.

S. Moore

It got off to a rough start. Pickup was late because of traffic but the driver got us to Pearl Harbor on time. He was very courteous and made sure we were ok before he let us go on our way. The city tour was fun.

J. Fuentes

We had an awesome time at Pearl Harbor. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and polite. We will definitely use this service again on our next trip to Hawaii.

M. Santiago

Great service. Highly recommended.

J. Vo

We had a smooth ride from our Waikiki hotel to the Arizona Memorial today! Our guide was very knowledgeable and upbeat, was right on time and a complete gentleman. We appreciated the great service!

L. Hiller

My wife and I flew over from Maui for a one day visit as we wanted to see the Pearl Harbor Memorial and take a quick spin of Oahu. The flight, Pearl Harbor tour was set up as a package deal through this company. The flight was smooth, and the visit to the memorial was unforgettable. It was sobering and inspiring at the same time, I would recommend it if you ever have the chance. We had a great time, and our driver, flights and day were perfect. It was nice to see one of the other islands than the one we were staying on, and I’d highly recommend it because the difference in islands is amazing. It would not have been a fun sightseeing tour if I had been trying to navigate the traffic, so we are very pleased with our choice of tours.

D. Kenner

We really enjoyed this tour. We were picked up right on time at our hotel and taken to the Pearl Harbor area. Our tour guide, walked us into the park and gave us all the details of where and what to see. He gave an explanation of what we would see. Everthing was well planned and our guide even pointed out several landmarks on the drive back to the hotel. Timing was perfect. I highly recommend this tour. The pickup was essentially on time. Our driver was great. Very patient and relatively soft spoken. He was a wealth of knowledge and I could tell well read. He got us to our destination on time. Explained how to get to our boat on time to the Arizona Memorial and to the Missouri. Our guide was knowledgable and we had a brief tour of downtown Honolulu and the Punchbowl. The vans were very clean and the AC worked well. The seats were comfortable and we weren’t crowded. We’ll definitely book again next time in Honolulu.

A. George

Our guide was great. He took us around and gave us great city tour showing us lots of highlights in the city. He was very knowledgeable and gave recommendations for other sights we might want to see.

T. Fields

Our tour guide was very prompt and professional. He was easy to understand and talked loudly enough that everyone could hear. A city tour followed our Pearl Harbor and USS Arizona Memorial Tour. Very enjoyable.

R. Silver

We took this tour to Pearl Harbor on a windy rainy day and that caused some disappointment. I have to say first off that our driver, was excellent and tried to make the best of it. Once we got to the memorial park we were informed it was too windy for the Park Service/Navy to drive the boat out to the memorial itself, so after waiting for our scheduled time slot to see a 20-minute movie (that was good) we were left with over an hour to kill, in the rain, waiting for our van to return. The rest of the tour was ok, with a stop at the palace for a brief photo op, and some driving through other attractions, but overall the weather killed the experience for us.

M. Lawson

Our trip was great. We were picked up on time and out tour guide gave us very clear instructions. Very enjoyable visit to Pearl Harbor and Arizona Memorial.

J. Walker

Our tour guide was very polite, easy to get along with, and funny. He was also very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions we had. The tour itself was better than expected! I would definitely book a tour through this company again!

Here are some points of Interest that you will see on your tour:

Arizona Memorial

When you arrive at the Arizona Memorial, walk to the ramp from the boat dock and enter the Arizona Memorial. There is a limited time on the Memorial, and people will move from the entrance to the far end of the Memorial. On the way to the far side, take some time to look at the USS Missouri, which is docked near the Arizona Memorial. Some portions of the ship are still visible above water. These are parts of the superstructure, the remains of the number 2 turret, and the number 3 turret barbette. You may notice an orange buoy to either side of the Memorial; these denote the bow and stern of the ship.

Iolani Palace

Iolani Palace was constructed in 1882 under the order of King David Kalakaua. By 1887, Iolani Palace had been furnished with electricity and a phone line. The palace served as the official residence of the Kings and Queens of the Kingdom of Hawaii until the last monarch, Queen Liliuokalani, was overthrown in 1891. The building then served as the capital building of Hawaii until 1969. Iolani Palace has since been restored and is accessible to the public with reservations. In addition, the Iolani Palace has been featured in both versions of the popular Hawaii-based television show Hawaii Five-O.

Iolani-Palace (2)

Punchbowl

The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific is located in Punchbowl crater. Like Arlington Cemetery in Virginia, the Punchbowl Cemetery is a National Cemetery. Most of the people buried there are Veterans and their families. The cemetery was established in 1949 and is the final resting place for veterans of WWI up to today. Notably, the unidentified remains of victims of the Pearl Harbor attack are buried there. Work is ongoing to identify those remains and to either reinter them with a proper burial or return them to their home state. A prominent sculpture named “Lady Columbia ” is a significant feature in the cemetery.

Punchbowl

Surfing

The sport we know as surfing has its origins in ancient Hawaii. For the ancient Hawaiians, this was more than just a sport and had spiritual connections. The most skilled surfers tended to be the chiefs. Europeans were first introduced to surfing when Captain Cook arrived in the Islands. Today surfing is a sport beloved by people the world over. While there are many popular surfing spots worldwide, the most famous are in Hawaii. The North Shore of Oahu is a mecca for surfers everywhere who come for the chance to ride the waves at places like Sunset Beach or the famous “Banzai Pipeline.”
