The tour times provided reflect the start and end of the tour, but not your exact pickup and drop off time. Whether or not you've provided your hotel/lodging at the time of booking, you are required to contact the tour provider no less than (2) days prior to your tour date to receive your exact pickup time and location. The tour provider will advise you of the specific area at the hotel/lodging you should wait; for example "at the front entrance." Please be there at least 5 minutes before your pickup time. If your hotel/lodging is not included on our pickup schedule, you'll be advised to meet at nearby location. Please note that we are prohibited by certain properties to pickup non-hotel guests and we do not pick-up at private properties such as AirBnB's and residential areas. Additional pickup location : Ross Dress for Less (Seaside Avenue)
Following pickup from your hotel in Waikiki, board your comfortable vehicle and drive to the Arizona Memorial Visitor Center.

Explore the visitor center's display of artifacts from the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, then board the launch boat to head out on the water and view the Arizona Memorial itself. The sunken remains of the battleship remain just where they landed on the ocean floor, memorializing the 1,000 sailors killed there in 1941.

Tour the USS Bowfin, a ship that was instrumental in the Pacific's battles during World War II. Your next stop is the Pacific Aviation Museum, where you will learn about the history of the country's war planes and the brave soldiers that flew them.

Your last activity is a guided tour of the United States' last battleship, the USS Missouri. Get a chance to look around the ship where the Japanese surrendered to the Allies in 1945, the coda to your complete Pearl Harbor tour. Along the way, enjoy narration by your professional driver and guide that will help bring the whole experience to life for you.

The 9.5-hour day of exploring the island's World War II history ends with drop-off at your Waikiki hotel.

Well worth it, would probably improve as Covid restriction ease.

Visit to Arizona the best (and most meaningful) part of the tour. Submarine museum and visit good. Not enough area (decks) of the Missouri available to see, particularly engine rooms, I understand this was probably due to Covid and lack of staff but still good.

Garfield was awesome!

Garfield, our guide/driver, was amazing! He was very friendly and made every effort to make all of us feel like family! I wish we could have had more time at each of the memorials, however there are only so many hours in a day! I will definitely be back again to repeat this adventure and get more time to see things in more detail.

A Moving Experience

This is a very complete tour of Pearl Harbor, with plenty of time to see everything. It starts with a self-guided tour of the submarine, Bowfin. Then the museum and park. We were then ferried across the harbor to the Arizona Memorial. There was time to walk around, learn and reflect. After returning, we were taken to Ford Island to see the air field and aviation museum. We had a light lunch there. From there, we were taken to the Battleship Missouri. It’s self guided, however there were multiple, extremely friendly, guides aboard ready to answer any questions. The Missouri is impressive. If you have the time, this tour is recommended.

Pearl Harbor revisited

Pearl Harbor is very informative, humbling and definitely a worthwhile stop when you visit Oahu. It is a long day so wear comfortable clothing and shoes but well worth walking through history and honoring those who endured this tragedy. I gave this a 1 star rating for several reasons: Pearl Harbor opens at 7 am, we were the last group pick up at 7:30 am on this tour. However, we did not arrive until 9 am or later due to having to pick up a tourist arriving at the airport from a different island! We would have appreciated having the full day at Pearl as there is so much to see and absorb. This company needs to figure out a better system to accommodate these "commuting" tourists! We also do not believe we benefited much from booking this tour and paying the high price - could have taken a separate means of transportation and purchased one of the all inclusive tickets at the visitor center, thus gaining more time at Pearl in addition to saving ourselves considerable money. Having booked tours through Viator in the past, we thought this would be great - they may want to reconsider working with this tour company. We would not recommend booking this tour. Not worth this high cost.

What a fabulous day! We had a terrific driver that was a wealth of information about the events of Dec7. He was very accommodating and gave us grace at tips so we had great seats and didn't miss one single thing. The van was comfortable and we had a good group. Would definitely recommend using Viator for this excursion!!

Brilliant tour, very humbling. You get to go to all 4 main areas. You aren’t allowed to take bags/rucksacks etc into the areas, there is a drop off area with lockers but you really doubt need to take bags on this trip. Had a great, informative day here. Well worth it.

We did this in 2015 but this was at the top of our list to do and it was so worth it! The guide/driver was very good and informative and helpful. It was very impressive to see the USS Arizona Memorial, the USS Missouri Battleship and the USS Bowfin Submarine as well as the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. It was a worthwhile experience!

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour as we saw the USS Arizona, USS Missouri, USS Bowfin and the Pacific Aviation Museum and all were fantastic! Our guide, Peter, was great too and knowledgeable with the history of Pearl Harbor. We recommend this tour as you get to spend the day at Pearl Harbor and are not rushed through any of the sites.

Great tour except the navy stopped the running of the tenders out to the memorial - a huge disappointment. See the memorial early in the day as you could miss out if navy decides to stop the transfers.

This was a great tour. Our tour guide / driver Kaleo was amazing, he was so funny and had us all laughing on the bus the whole day. We visited the Arizona Memorial, the Missouri, the Bowfin and the Pacific Aviation Museum which were all great and the whole experience was moving. We met Dick Girocco who at 95 was just amazing and it was an honour to shake his hand. The bus picked us up from the hotel and dropped us back, it was well organised. If you go to Hawaii don't miss this tour!

Carmen_R
, Dec 2016
This is a five star tour - if you are in a hurry and just want to get a quick overview of Pearl Harbor. But you need much more time to see the four museums, the films, the Arizona memorial and the USS Bowfin than what was allowed. I suggest you get yourself there and back by taxi and buy individual tickets, arriving very early because they do sell out quickly. There is so much to see and do at Pearl Harbor and we were very rushed to get it all in. The rush was exacerbated by participants who did not adhere to the strict time schedule and we wasted valuable time waiting on them! Really inconsiderate of them.
