Tour Highlights

Tour Description

For visitors to the Island of Oahu, there is no shortage of activities to participate in and sights to see. Your vacation time is important; why waste it? If you are someone who values your time and wants to see a good portion of the Island of Oahu, we have an excellent tour for you. Our Pearl Harbor, USS Arizona Memorial, and East Oahu Mini Island Tour covers Hawaii’s number one attraction and gives you a look at some of the most beautiful spots on the Island. Rather than deal with the hassle of a bus tour with 20-60 people, our private tour offers an alternative for you. Instead of a group tour in a bus with around 20-60 people, why not ride privately to Pearl Harbor and then go on the East Oahu Mini Island tour in a clean, comfortable, air-conditioned minivan? Our professional, chauffeur will take you to Pearl Harbor. Once you have arrived at the Pearl Harbor Visitor’s Center, our chauffeur will take you inside and give you an orientation and provide you with the tickets for your tour. With this tour, there is no need to get up before the sun rises to stand in line with thousands of other people to see if you can get a ticket for the Arizona Memorial. We have reserved a ticket for the USS Arizona Memorial, which we have included for you in this tour (please read our disclaimer about the USS Arizona Memorial ticket). Meaning you will not need to worry about an Arizona Memorial ticket. You will be taken to the Visitor’s Center at Pearl Harbor and see the two museums detailing the cause of the attack as well as details on the attack itself. See the 23-minute film on the attack featuring footage taken during the attack itself. Take the Navy shuttle boat to Arizona Memorial Monument. Then, you will be taken on a drive-through tour of the historical Downtown of Honolulu. You get to see the famous golden statue of Hawaii’s legendary monarch, King Kamehameha the Great, the first King to unite the Hawaiian Islands. View the famous Iolani Palace, the only Royal Palace on American soil. See 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 Cemetery, the final resting place of many U.S. service members from WWI to the present. Then we will move on to drive through Kahala, the most expensive neighborhood in the world, known as the “Beverly Hills of Hawaii”. Next, we will take you on a tour of East Oahu, including the Scenic Vistas of Oahu’s rugged East Coast. You will see the scenic lookout point known as the “blow hole,” a natural rock formation that spouts water through wave action. Take the view at Makapuu Point, at the eastern tip of the Island of Oahu. Then we will take you past the beautiful beaches of Waimanalo and through the beautiful green mountains of the Nuuanu Pali before returning you to your hotel.

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

Lone Sailor

The statue known as “the Lone Sailor” is a tribute to all personnel in the sea services past, present, and future. This statue was sculpted by Stanley Bleifeld using a real sailor, PO1 Dan Maloney as the model. The initials and last name on the sea bag belong to Rear Admiral William Thompson, the first president of the Navy Memorial Foundation. The foundation raised funds for the creation of the Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C. The bronze used for the original sculpture is said to have had several historical artifacts added to it during the smelting process.

Sadako Crane

You will find a display at Pearl Harbor that houses a tiny folded paper crane. This crane was folded by a Japanese girl named Sadako Sasaki. She survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. While she survived the explosion, ten years after the bomb, she developed leukemia. While in the hospital, she began folding 1,000 paper cranes believing that doing so would grant her a wish. She managed to fold 1,400 before succumbing to leukemia at the age of twelve. Her crane folding caught the attention of many people, and Sadako became a symbol of people affected by the atomic bomb and the hope for world peace. The crane at Pearl Harbor was donated by her family as a symbol of peace.

Pearl Harbor Bookstore

Don’t forget to check out the Pearl Harbor Visitor’s Center Bookstore. The bookstore is operated by the nonprofit Pacific Historic Parks. In addition to history books and reference materials, the bookstore offers a wide array of souvenirs and keepsakes. A portion of the proceeds goes toward funding the Pearl Harbor National Memorial. One unique gift option that the bookstore offers are the USS Arizona Memorial flags. These are flags flown over the Arizona Memorial. Each day the flag over the Arizona Memorial Monument is raised and lowered. Each day a new flag is flown. A flag may be ordered that is to be flown on a specific date. Once the flag is lowered, it is folded in the traditional fashion, packed together with a certificate and personalized message, and shipped to the buyer. There are date restrictions such as flags flown on December 7, the Fourth of July, or Memorial Day and on days that Pearl Harbor National Memorial is closed.

State Capitol Building

The Hawaii State Capitol Building has been the seat of the Hawaii State Government since 1969. The building was designed by the architectural firms Belt, Lemon, and Lo and John Carl Warnecke and Associates. The building’s architecture contains a lot of symbolism. For example, the reflecting pool around the building represents the Pacific Ocean, the two conical structures housing the State Legislature represent volcanoes, and the columns represent royal palms, one for each Island in the State. Two prominent features of the Capitol Building are the great seal of the State of Hawaii and the statue of Saint Damien De Veuster, Hawaii’s first Catholic Saint.
