Premium Pearl Harbor Tour
Featuring Battleship Missouri & 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 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 historic video imagery shown on vehicle monitors. A delicious restaurant lunch overlooking the Harbor is included, and Punchbowl National Cemetery, Hawaii’s ’Iolani Palace, and other sites are viewed during the tour. Group size averages just 16 guests and the price is a remarkable value!

Our guests select the Premium tour for how they will experience Pearl Harbor as much as for what content is included. It’s the “tour for non-tourists” preferring a personable guide whose sense of hospitality and knowledge of Pearl Harbor’s historic past is shared with respect, humility, and the Spirit of Aloha.

Tour Details

The day’s adventure begins as your driver guide welcomes you aboard your deluxe black minibus—the finest on the island. You’ll enjoy a locally-produced banana bread treat and learn of Waikiki’s colorful history as you depart for Pearl Harbor. Your guide’s superb live narration is complemented by a touching message from a Pearl Harbor attack survivor, historic images, and video shown on vehicle monitors.

You’ll visit the solemn 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 served at reserved tables in a popular local restaurant overlooking the scenic yacht harbor and Ford Island bridge. It’s a favorite of servicemen and women, residents, and a few fortunate visitors. There’s a choice of six delicious menu selections, and each are local favorites.

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.
