    Honolulu (Pass By)

    See the historic buildings that played a part of Hawaii's history as a monarchy, a territory and as the 50th state.

    USS Arizona Memorial

    Pearl Harbor is currently operating their boat shuttles in a modified and limited capacity due to dock damages. Under normal circumstances we do secure the tickets and reservation times for all of our tours, however, with the current situation we try our best to secure what we can daily. Our guides do make sure that all guests get to experience the USS Arizona, but on some days we have to use the standby line to make that happen

    kcwbrown, Mar 2023
    Ferry did not run due to weather. I would expect a backup plan from the company since it appears this is common during this time of the year.
    Response from Host, Mar 2023
    We would love to offer a backup plan but unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the US Navy. They have total control over when the ferry gets shut down due to weather. Weather in Hawaii can be quite unpredictable so there is rarely any notice when this happens. We truly hope you were able to enjoy the many other exhibits at Pearl Harbor during your visit.
    Open air bus!
    Christine_C, Mar 2023
    This was an otherwise ok tour, with a cute and funny tour guide who calls himself Juicy. I didn’t realize this was going to be an open air bus with an open rooftop. We happened to go on a very windy and rainy day. It was absolutely miserable. The bus goes quite fast, and we were pelted with rain. Fortunately they gave us some ponchos which helped. We were also unable to take the ferry ride to the USS Arizona. That wasn’t the tour’s fault of course. I’d book this on a warm sunny day, which is probably the norm for Honolulu.
    Awesome experience

    The driver was entertaining and kept us entertained throughout the ride to and from Pearl Harbor. Being able to visit Pearl Harbor brought the classroom education to life. My son kept saying he had a great day!!
    History of Pearl Harbor
    TONEY_C, Feb 2023
    The movie provided great details and the history of why Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. Reviewing the Memorial for battleships and about their sacrifices. It knowledge that I can pass down to my grandchildren.
    Great tour!
    Felix_M, Feb 2023
    We highly recommend this tour! Great communication with the company and with the driver, Mo! Money well spent.
    Response from Host, Feb 2023
    Mahalo for the kind words. We love what we do because we’re in the business of happiness. We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us and we hope you ride with us again.
    Honest Company
    Morgan_S, Feb 2023
    Juicy was a great tour guide and he was very honest about the possibility that we may not get to see the USS Arizona memorial due to weather conditions. We appreciated his honesty and luckily for us, the weather cleared up! Recommend!

    Lloyd_C, Feb 2023
    Mo was our guide and just did a great job keeping us all informed and provided so many great stories as we drove around. We normally don't do these kind of tours, but she made is fantastic!
    Well worth the time and money
    Karen_D, Feb 2023
    I love history, and already know a lot about Dec 7, but our driver/guide provided lots of additional info I hadn't known in the past. For me, the time at Pearl Harbor was just right. Sunday, Jan 29 was a rainy day, and the ponchos on the bus were a lifesaver on the return back to the city. I'd give our driver a 5* rating.
    Outstanding Guide!
    Thomas_M, Jan 2023
    Our guide was INCREDIBLE. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The background that he told us about Pearl Harbor on the bus on the way to Pearl Harbor was invaluable. A+++++
    Interesting tour but not enough time at the site.
    Tasha_M, Jan 2023
    The tour guide was nice and the bus was nice. This is difficult because we enjoyed the tour but we didn’t feel like there was enough time to see everything that we wanted to see there.
    Brenda_B, Jan 2023
    Enjoyed the whole experience. Our guide was very informative and very personable. He shared many history stories. Very interesting
    Otto_S, Jan 2023
    The entire Pearl Harbor Tour was great and the City Tour part of the trip was fantastic as our tour guide, Chelsea was excellent and very knowledgeable about the history of Hawaii.
    Unforgettable visit - would certainly recommend
    David_R, Jan 2023
    Great tour. It was good to include the downtown city tour to add to the Pearl Harbour visit. Perfect guide with great knowledgeable commentary. Very moving visit to the Pearl Harbour memorial. Learnt so much about events and will be an unforgettable visit. Certainly recommend this visit
    The Pearl Harbor tour is terrific, I would recommend less stops and talk slower 😎
    Carol_S, Jan 2023
    Great film on DDay , the Memorial is so good, the film too , glad I went ! The downtown tour was too fast, couldn’t figure out what he was talking about… Nanny talked and drove too fast to get anything out of the history of Hawaii, but was nice 😎
    Perfect timing
    Loren_M, Dec 2022
    Chelsea was an awesome tour guide. This tour was perfect if you don't want to spend forever at Pearl Harbor but want to go to USS Arizona and walk around the visitor center. Nice history of Honolulu too.
