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 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 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 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.

The US Department of the Interior has declared a “no bags” policy at the Arizona Memorial and Visitor Center. Passengers may not carry any concealing items. This includes purses, handbags, backpacks, diaper bags, etc. Small cameras are permitted. Allowable vital items may be placed in your pockets. Do not leave any valuables on the coach. This tour does not operate on Christmas, New Year’s Day or Thanksgiving.

Due to ceremonies on December 7th each year, the park is closed to commercial vehicles and we do not operate our normal tours to the USS Arizona Memorial on that date. Also, on rare occasions, and due to external factors outside of our control (including inclement weather and/or shortages of boat launch tickets), there is the possibility of not being able to visit the Arizona Memorial during your visit. You will still be able to visit the many Arizona exhibits and visitor’s center, the USS Bowfin and other monuments at the park.

We travel a lot and have taken many tours, but this one tops them all.
Ernie, who was our tour guild made our day memorable and very special.

He shared a lot of his life experiences with us and told many funny jokes. He even surprised us with a couple of very touching gifts. He is a kind man with a giving heart, who put the needs of his tour group first.

The Pearl Harbor memorial tour is a must while you are in Honolulu, and the fact that this tour includes the Punchbowl and city tour makes it worth it.
The whole experience was very moving, and I enjoyed the lunch that came with the premium package.

It was an awesome day. Thanks Ernie for sharing your knowledge and experiences of Pearl Harbor and this beautiful Island. I wish I could give 10 stars.

Kaleo and Ernie were absolutely incredible, fun, knowledgeable and just great people. It was a very easy way of doing a lot of things that normal would be very tiring or cumbersome. The vehicle was great as well and the food provided for lunch and on the van was amazing, just an amazing experience overall
