    DavidR_A, Sep 2023
    Experience was quite amazing. The Tour Guide was so informative and on occasion funny. He described everything we saw so eloquently. Pearl Harbor was so somber but at the same time so eye opener! The whole experience was so memorable. Mahalo

    Disaster Tour Operator
    STEVEN_K, Aug 2023
    This tour operator is terrible. No customer service. DO NOT book this tour. You will regret booking with them.
    Excellent museum
    Rachelle_S, Jul 2023
    Humu was an entertaining guide with lots of local knowledge. The tour bus is an open topped double decker with open sides so it gets breezy on the highway. At this point it gets noisy so it wasn't always easy to follow the commentary. There are several pick ups in honolulu/waikiki. The first stop was downtown honolulu for some photos by the Palace then on to pearl harbor. Please note the strict bag policy, available on the Pearl Harbor website - no opaque bags above cell phone size are allowed. Transparent bags are okay and anything you can put in a pocket or carry in your hand is ok. Otherwise there is a $7 bag check and a queue. We were told to bring ID but this wasnt checked. we had about 3 hours at pearl harbor from 12.30-3.30pm. Included in the ticket price is the museum, theatre show (the film is at 15 and 45 past the hour and lasts 25mins) and then the trip across to the Arizona memorial, which takes about 45mins. You are given an admission time on your ticket for the Arizona memorial and should line up 10mins before then. Note that water is the only refreshment allowed at the memorial. The memorial is very moving and museum very informative. There is also the submarine museum and chance to visit the Bowfin sub. I did this quickly and managed to fit it in - it is an extra $23. For an extra charge there are virtual reality headsets to use. The site also has an aviation museum and the battleship Missouri but this requires taking a bus over to Ford Island and is difficult in the time available. There is a gift shop and shop selling snacks. The museum has been done very well and there is so much information to try to take in.
    Entertaining, Sobering, Informative

    Our driver/tour guide was Nani Popolo. He was great and really made the drive both entertaining and informative. Nani explained everything clearly and did a great job organizing a large group of people. Once we got to Pearl Harbor we were able to go through the museums on our own before our group reservation to go out to the USS Arizona. It is a sobering experience to visit the memorial. I love how both our tour guide and the people working at the memorial remind everyone to be respectful and quiet as you are really going to a cemetery where men gave their lives on the USS Arizona... I just wish people would listen. I was sad that there were quite a few people speaking louder than a whisper (it just seemed disrespectful). If you book this just keep in mind that the big orange E Noa tour buses don't have windows so you will be wind blown. It felt nice, but the thought of getting hit by a bird or rock definitely crossed my mind. So make sure any hats you are wearing are secure so you don't lose it in the wind. Overall, a wonderful and memorable experience.
    Fantastic tour. Highly recommend

    Bruddah Oli did an amazing job narrating and I learned so much more than what’s you can read on your own. It was chill, relaxed pace, then the tour of the Pearl Harbor memorial was memorable. Highly recommend
    RobertS_W, Jul 2023
    Very awesome time from the pickup all the way to the drop off. The driver of the bus was very informative and very personable. The Navy for very professional and did a wonderful job getting us out to the memorial and back quick and safe. Once out there I truly felt I was on holy ground consecrated by blood of The Men who still remain there! I truly cannot say anything negative of my trip.
    Our tour guide was full...
    Bill_W, Jul 2023
    Our tour guide was full of historical information that was given in a fun and enjoyable manner! Even our teens were listening and learning!
    Great Time

    Nani Popolo was a great tour guide. Very informative and entertaining. He is easy to talk to. He paid attention to detail. Unfortunately, out of the tours hands was that the ferry boats to the memorial were cancelled due to wind.
    Great Pearl Harbor and City Tour!!!
    Vannareth_S, Jun 2023
    Ika Squid was fabulous and friendly. He gave one of the best tour I’ve ever been on. He was very informative with the city and pearl harbor’s history. Great tour and experience overall.
    Kelly_D, Jun 2023
    Very disappointing…our tour included only part entry (no submarine access) and the Arizona tour was cancelled due to wind. So really our ticket got us there that’s about it!! However customer service was prompt to respond when I complained. Awaiting a further response from them for compensation.
    Honor the memory

    Gregg_T, Jun 2023
    Oli, our tour guide was fantastic, informative, and funny. He made our tour wonderful. Of course, Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial were very moving. Highly recommend this tour.
    Perfect for us
    Sharon_D, Jun 2023
    Really good day - the tour guide was really informative a great way of seeing the city and Pearl harbour with little time to spare. Really wanted more time at Pearl harbour but that was for another time this was a great 3 hours (we knew we wouldn’t have enough time to see it all) . If you want to explore Pearl harbour in detail this is not for you but if your limited on time it’s perfect.
    No backbone
    Steven_S, May 2023
    I didn’t go see the memorial because the Navy said it was too windy is the navy our push the flag is going on and the flag was flying and the Navy was going on the ground so it wasn’t going on but it wasn’t so I
    Great excursion
    Robert_B, May 2023
    Driver was great and informative. Site itself was good but I would have liked to have heard more about the attack strategy and chronology.
    Great guide, buy the extra ticket for the submarine visit
    Simon_L, May 2023
    Oli was a fantastic guide and if it wasn’t for him i would have given less than 4 stars. I found the Pearl Harbor memorial to be underwhelming, you take a boat to see a list of names on the wall and see very little of the sank ship so unless there’s an emotional reason for you to visit, i would skip and pay extra to visit the submarine which was awesome.
