Premium Pearl Harbor Tour
Featuring Battleship Missouri & USS Arizona Memorial

Join like-minded guests preferring a deluxe small vehicle experience for their exclusive tour of Pearl Harbor’s two most iconic sites. The USS Arizona Memorial and USS Missouri battleship represent the beginning and the end of the WWII. Your entertaining driver guide’s live narration provides fascinating insights into the events shaping the conflict and resolution of the war. The live narration is enhanced with video and photos shown on vehicle monitors. A delicious restaurant lunch is included, and Punchbowl National Cemetery, Hawai’i’s ’Iolani Palace, and other sites are viewed during the tour.

Tour Details

The day’s adventure begins as your driver guide welcomes you aboard a mini coach. You’ll enjoy a slice of banana bread and learn of Waikiki’s colorful history as you depart for Pearl Harbor. Your guide’s live narration is complemented by historic images, and video shown on vehicle monitors.

You’ll visit the solemn USS Arizona Memorial directly above the USS Arizona battleship that sunk during the attack on December 7, 1941 and became the final resting place of many of the 1,177 officers and crewmen who were lost. It’s a powerful reminder of those who gave their lives for their country. You’ll view actual film footage of the attack, view Pearl Harbor Visitor Center displays, and gain firsthand insight into WWII in the Pacific and beyond.

Aboard the famed Battleship Missouri, you’ll walk in the footsteps of General Douglas MacArthur, Admiral Chester Nimitz, and officers of the Allied Powers in 1945 when the instruments of surrender were signed on the ship, signaling the end WWII. “Mighty Mo” valiantly fought in WWII, the Korean War and in Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf, supporting the cause of freedom.

Lunch is at a popular local restaurant, choose from a variety of local favorite dishes.

You’ll remember the sacrifices of America’s heroes as you ride through Punchbowl National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. View ‘Iolani Palace, home of Hawaiian royalty, and visit the King Kamehameha Statue, and other sites before returning to Waikiki.

  • Could this tour be any better? Not in our estimation! Our guide was wonderful, brought us banana bread with sweet butter, got us to all the sights with ample time and provided an interesting running commentary most of the way! He got to know each of us and assured we were comfortable enough with each other to enjoy lunching and conversation. Bus was clean and comfortable.
