Honolulu City Highlights, Arizona Memorial & Pearl Harbor Tour

This is by far our single most popular Pearl Harbor tour. Not only will you visit the famed USS Arizona Memorial to pay respects to those lost during the air attack of 1941, but you’ll witness actual film footage of the attack, view gripping displays describing the tragedy and heroism the era in our history, and leave Pearl Harbor with an increased appreciation for our nation’s women and men in uniform.

Along with your Pearl Harbor visit, you’ll view the beauty and solemnity of Punchbowl Cemetery, officially known as the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, located in an extinct volcano. Your excursion will continue onward to show you many of Honolulu’s most famous landmarks and buildings, including Iolani Palace – the only royal palace in the United States – and the King Kamehameha statue, seen throughout the world among compilations of Hawaii’s most iconic sights.

This is only our most economical tour, but an extremely convenient one. Simply book today to avoid a sell-out, let us know your hotel location, and we’ll pick you up in Waikiki and return you to the same place after your tour. It’s an ideal family tour as well as one popular with couples seeking the comfort and carefree benefit of a professionally narrated tour aboard an air-conditioned, deluxe tour vehicle.

Tour Highlights:
  • Arizona Memorial – Travel aboard a US Navy vessel to the Arizona Memorial which was designed by the architectural team to be situated directly above the actual USS Arizona battleship without resting on the sunken ship. The ship is the final resting place of many of the 1,177 officers and crewmen who were lost during the attack.
  • Pearl Harbor Visitor Center – You’ll witness actual film footage of the attack at the Visitor Center Theater, view historic galleries and displays, and find yourself taken back in time to a period of conflict which brought the United States directly into battle, forging its role in eventually concluding it following years of combat.
  • Punchbowl Cemetery – From the comfort of your tour vehicle view the dignified beauty of the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl. The memorial cemetery was created to pay homage to those in the US Armed Forces whose lives were lost in the service of their country.
  • Iolani Palace – The residence of the Hawaii Kingdom royalty between 1845 and 1893. The only royal palace on US soil, the palace employs architectural design seen no place else. It’s “American Florentine” design was created using brick with concrete facing, with ornamental plaster interior.
  • King Kamehameha Statue – Seen in pictures around the world as an archetype of Hawaii’s regal past, the statue honors the monarch founded the Kingdom of Hawaii, and one of the “must see” sites included in the tour.
  • Kawaiahao Church and Mission Houses – Sometimes referred to as “Hawaii’s Westminster Abbey”, Kawaiahao Church was the chapel of the royal family. It’s the oldest church on Oahu, and the Hawaiian language is still used during portions of services.
  • Hawaii State Capitol – The capitol houses the governor’s office and state legislature. The American adaptation of the Bauhaus style of the building provides a dramatic contrast to the well-preserved historic buildings located just blocks away.
  • Honolulu Hale – Literally, “Honolulu building”, in the Hawaiian language, the building houses the mayor’s chambers and is the seat of the government of the City and County of Honolulu.

Customer Testimonials

This was one of the best days we had on Oahu from start to finish! This tour is very well organized and handled—we were picked up at the designated location on time and it was very easy to find and close to our hotel. The tour guide we had was a very informative local who had very interesting stories and lots of historical information. We had ample time to spend at the Pearl Harbor Arizona Memorial and a very nice drive through the Punchbowl Cemetery. On the way back we got to stop and take photos of the [‘Iolani] Palace and even get a snack. Then we were dropped off right in front of our hotel at the prearranged time—this was the best coordinated tour! Loved every minute of it!
