This was an AMAZING tour. My wife and I loved it. We had ample time to explore the Arizona Memorial. We also had enough time to see the USS Missouri. We were disappointed that we couldn't stop at the Punchbowl but because previous tourists desecrated the tombstones tour busses are no longer allowed to stop. Being a veteran I was appalled at this behavior. Our tour guide Aaron was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He is a great asset to this company. Thank you for an amazing time.
I had an amazing guide that knew the history of not only Pearl Harbor and Honolulu but of the whole Hawaiian history, but he made it so interesting for all of us. He answered any questions that we had and even the trees and flowers. It was by far the best money I spent in the whole ten days I was in Hawaii. Alex never seemed to be bothered by traffic or delays caused by us passengers. He was so patient with all of us. I have totally recommended the tour to my friends back in Iowa.
Excellent tour...Our guide, Rocky, was wonderful, friendly and very knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend!
This tour was worth joining. The guide, whose name is Pualani, gave us very informative and interesting guiding. Thank you, Pualani.
Mike gave a great tour. Be sure to see Pearl Harbor when you visit Oahu.
Wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable.Went out of his way to make sure we didnt miss anything.
Great day cousin Fred was very knowledgeable on Hawaii history
Very well organised, picked up by very knowledgable guide, courteous and efficiently saw us through skipping the line. Wonderful film I tro to the history and smoothly moved through all areas, museum, Arizona very moving. Missouri amazing. To and from hotel we were given great tour of highlights and local info on Honolulu. A must do tour.
This tour exceeded our expectations. The local operator E Noa Tours had an excellent driver-guide, Rick, who picked us up at our Waikiki hotel on time and linked up with a van that had gathered group members from one or two other hotels. This rendezvous was a much-appreciated time saver since it meant that we had far less down time than if one minibus had to circle through perhaps 4 or 5 different hotels. Rick is an ethnic Hawaiian and lifelong Oahu resident, and besides being authoritative on WWII events, he gave us information about many local traditions. We started the tour with a drive to and through the cemetery at Punchbowl, including a stop to view the grave of Ernie Pyle, visible form the bus near the roadway. Then we drove to the Visitor Center at Pearl Harbor, to spend the next few hours. Rick gave us good overviews of the background of each, as well as practical tips for making the best use of our time. Both the Arizona Memorial and Missouri battleship tours were well done. The former is of course a sacred place and there was not a lot of commentary from anyone as visitors left the Navy-operated boat shuttle and came aboard to pass through the memorial. The Missouri is apparently staffed by volunteer guides, and ours that day was a woman whose presentations were both upbeat/energetic and somber as appropriate. I think it would be a mistake to come to Pearl Harbor and not see the Missouri as well as the Arizona, and this particular tour includes both. We did not take the time to visit the Bowfin submarine, although we could have done so if we had hurried. The lunch at the visitor center was adequate. We had enough time at the end of the day for Rick to drive us into Honolulu and see some of Chinatown, as well as an opportunity to get out of the bus and take photographs at the Royal Palace but not to go inside - it may have been closed by then anyway. We had only one full day in Honolulu and we are very glad we booked this tour for it.
Great day trip. Learnt so much. Very poignant. Well worth doing..
