Tour Description

Travel in style on the Remember Pearl Harbor – Arizona Memorial & Battleship Missouri Tour – Luxury Edition, a fully narrated tour of the most popular sites at Pearl Harbor. Known as the “bookends of World War II in the Pacific,” you will be taken to the spot where the USS Arizona was attacked, thrusting the America into WWII. You will also tour the USS Missouri, where Japan signed the treaty that ended the war.

Luxury Pearl Harbor Tour

An air conditioned luxury mini coach will pick you up at your hotel. Enjoy a breakfast bar and chilled bottled water as your professional guide prepares you for your day at Pearl Harbor. When you arrive, bypass the long ticket lines and browse through the World War II Valor in the Pacific Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. The galleries are full of historic photos, replicas, and interactive exhibits. In the Pearl Harbor Memorial Theater, you will be shown a 23 minute documentary of the Japanese air attack on Pearl Harbor which includes actual footage captured on the “date which will live in infamy.”

A Navy vessel will transport you to the pristine USS Arizona Memorial, constructed directly above the mid-section of the sunken ship. As your peer over the edge of the memorial, see the “Black Tears of the Arizona”, the oil slowly seeping up from the USS Arizona Battleship, dissipating at the water’s surface. You will have ample time to see the 3 rooms of the memorial and we encourage you to take a private moment in front of the Remembrance Wall to honor the 1177 crew members, including 23 sets of brothers, who died on December 7, 1941.

USS Battleship Missouri at Attention

The USS Missouri, aptly nicknamed the “Mighty Mo,” won 11 battle stars for service in World War II, the Korean War and the Persian Gulf War before taking up permanent residency at Pearl Harbor in 1998. As you traverse the 5 decks, you will hear captivating stories of life aboard the last battleship ever built by the United States. Overlooking the massive guns turrets, you’ll have a spectacular view of the Arizona Memorial. While on the Surrender Deck, imagine the USS Missouri docked in Tokyo Bay as General Douglas MacArthur and the Japanese delegates signed the treaty that ended WWII.

As you re-board the mini-coach, rehydrate with bottled water service, recline your seat, and relax in air conditioning as you are chauffeured to the Punchbowl National Cemetery, a military cemetery built in the crater of an extinct volcano. A statue of the Lady Columbia watches over the 13,000 military personnel who died in WWII, including the ones that perished during the Pearl Harbor attack.

Take advantage of the 360 panoramic viewing windows in the mini-coach as your tour guide continues to call attention to Honolulu landmarks such as the Hawaii State Capitol Building, Kawaiaha’o Church, and ‘Iolani Palace.

King Kamehameha Statue Luxury Tour

Before heading back to Waikiki, the tour will stop at the King Kamehameha Statue. King Kamehameha I was a great warrior who united the Hawaiian Islands into one kingdom in 1810 and the towering 18 foot tall bronze statue was commissioned in his honor.

With first class round-trip transportation, live narration by a professional tour guide, and admission fees to the most popular sites at Pearl Harbor included, all the logistics have been pre-arranged on your behalf.

    We took a tour of the USS Arizona to pay respect to the many who are laid to rest there. The movie shown was very moving. You go out on the boat, and you have plenty of time to look. There is a Veteran out there you can ask questions.

    We did the Arizona tour and would highly recommend it to everyone. The museums are well worth a walk though to learn a bit more about life. We didn’t plan to go but glad we did. Very informative and the tour of the city helped those just arriving for history and where things are.

    I truly appreciated the memorial. It was an amazing place to visit. there is no words that would express feelings while visiting. The morning part of going to the Arizona and watching the video of it all was the best part and all the children could handle.

    This place is something to be seen. You must see this place and see how many people died in the attack on Pearl Harbor. If you’re going to the memorial, make sure to spend some time on the other exhibits. We also learned quite a bit from out tour guide. The tour also took us to the Punchbowl cemetary. Was a lot to take in!

    My family gives thanks to the service men & women of today and to those who lost their lives from previous confrontations. I would recommend booking this tour which includes the USS Missouri battleship as well as the USS Arizona . From there you can see the USS Arizona memorial, marking our entrance into WW II and you can stand on the deck that ended the war. This is a must see for anyone coming to Honolulu. It’s a sobering experience to visit the sites and tour the ships. It’s important to remember our history.

    Our tour guide was awesome, the AC in the bus felt amazing after being outside in the heat for a while. Pearl Harbor is definitely worth seeing. Maybe the monument doesn’t have the glitz of other attractions but it is an important part of history and a must see.  My wife and I visit the aviation museum every year. The exhibits change enough that each year there is something new.

    A once in a lifetime experience. Educational emotional and inspiring all at the same time. Definitely make time for this on your Hawaii trip. Patriotism at its best. A must do experience if you are visiting Oahu.

     It is a very moving tribute to those who lost their lives, and those who survived the attack on Pearl Harbor I 1941. Thanks for a great day out.

    It was devastating what happened back in ’41 but such a beautiful tribute to the fallen. The boat ride to the memorial is very heartfelt and seeing what is left of the Arizona makes you feel proud and thankful to the men and women who lost their lives in this attack.

    Wow! This is a beautifully moving day out. Meeting Herb for a second time who survived the attack on Pearl Harbor is very special and the presentation, museum and Arizona are worth the trip. This is one of the greatest exhibits in Honolulu. The museums give a great lesson on what happened on that fateful day.

    Went with my husband. His main place to visit while here was Pearl Harbor. It was a humbling experience. The men that are buried at sea is sad, the tales told by the retired veterans that are on hand to lend their accounts are priceless. Solemn experience. 
    You come away understanding the importance and role this beautiful region played many decades ago.

    The video footage was amazing.  Thanks also to the volunteer who spoke to everyone on the barge over the wreckage. 
    Very knowledgeable.  There are volunteers available for questions you may even have a chance to talk with WWII survivors.

    Like so many other reviewers of this Memorial, I regard it as a Bucket List Must-See. While visiting some friends in Honolulu, the 3 of us visited Pearl Harbor. If you come to Hawaii, you must see this. A lot of history, that I’m sure you won’t forget. Worth every dollar.

    Being both a naval history buff and having served in the US Navy, this visit was particularly important to me and very moving. This war was huge and the stories surrounding it, reflect the individual human struggles and suffering. The monument let’s you see what happened.

    Again this is a must for history lovers. It was touching and enlightening. There is a movie played before you board a little boat and get to the actual memorial. Seeing the names of the submarines I first read about as a teenager and the names of the commanding officers I recognized, was both uplifting and heartbreaking at the same time. I did not realize the number of WWI submarines from the early 1920’s that had gone into battle early in the war and did not return.

    We spent the day visiting Pearl Harbor, the USS Bowfin, the Arizona Memorial, the USS Missouri, and the Aviation Museum. This was an excellent way to learn and revisit history. I am in awe at the courage of the men aboard those boats. There is a large wall with the names of all those aboard who died that day along with 2 smaller memorials listing the names of those who survived that day who have subsequently passed away.

    Took a tour from our hotel and got right in. Once inside the compound you are free to walk around to the various buildings. Pick up an audio set and take your time listening to the information. Excellent gift shop for buying books etc.  It was a day to honor the lives of the people lost that day and those that fought in World War II

    Prepare to be moved. Very educational and a nice tribute to those who suffered such an incredible loss. The Arizona and Missouri are fantastic. The Pacific Aviation Museum is also a must see. This is a memorial that you need to visit at least once.

    One of the highlights of our trip, Pearl Harbor is fantastic in every way. Only thing I will say is to see everything is expensive and as far as foods, hot dogs is your option.  Could provide healthier options.

    Our trip the the USS Arizona memorial was truly fascinating. I had of course seen and heard about the Memorial for years growing up but was not at all disappointed by the actual thing. We saw a moving film that explained all that lead up to that terrible day ,then went over to the memorial by boat. The memorial is built over the remains of the ship Arizona where so many tragically died.

    The pre-visit activitees set the mood and the actual arrival above the decks of the USS Arizona was so well done as to truly honor these men who died almost instantaneously abord the ill fated battleship on Dec.7, 1941. The architect who designed the memorial built it with the tree of life in mind. Good history that helps you to understand a big part of the history.

    Beautifully done and very overwhelming the memorial not only reminds one of the horrors of war but also the bravery and honor of those who fought to ensure our freedoms. Standing inside the Monument and looking down through the glass floor to see the remains of the Arizona feels almost fictional until it really sinks in that this is the real thing and the nearly 1,000 heroes entombed in the Arizona are still part of the daily remembrances.

    This tour includes both the Arizona Memorial and the Battleship Missouri, where General McArthur accepted Japan’s surrender. Please remember that this is a tomb, so instruct your children to have some reverence and respect. Loud talking, laughing, and running around are frowned upon here.

    Don’t miss a chance to see this memorial. When we were there we met a world war ll veteran that served during the attack on Pearl Harbor. My 16 year old son, who loves history, was quiet and somber while visiting where the Arizona went down. At a moment of silence, I saw a tear in my son’s eyes. He later commented that it was his favorite part of our trip.

    Great memorial to experience the true feeling of the loss of so many lives on the USS Arizona. We toured Pearl Harbor while in Hawaii and also visited the Arizona Memorial. It is a very somber, sacred memorial and resting place for the 2,000+ who lost their lives here in December 1941. Well done and a must do whilst in Hawaii.
