    It was an amazing feeling to be on the grounds of this national monument. Listening to the narration while walking through the museum was very informative but very emotional as well. What is not to like about Pearl Harbor. It is part of America’s history. You cannot go to Hawaii without a stop here.

    This is definitely a place you must visit, and pay your respect to. Amazing!! Our kids ages 17,14, 11 and 9 all enjoyed and could relate to this stop. A must see stop!

    Every American needs to visit. It’s a moving, humbling experience. We toured the USS Missouri, the USS Arizona Memorial, and the Punchbowl National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Plus Honolulu’s historic district. Learned a lot. It was a long day, but was happy to feel a part of respecting history.

    Glad we did this tour. We planned an epic 3 week vacation to Hawaii and island hopped making our home base in beautiful Kauai! Pearl Harbor will definitely stick out given this was a major part of our history. Respect to our fallen heroes.

    I did a tour there and it was excellent. You recognize that there are sacrifices in war and that it only takes a moment to kill thousands. Visited the cemetery. and the museums and USS Arizona. Very moving. Everyone who visits is moved and respectful. Not to be missed.

    Didn’t know quite what to expect when going to Pearl Harbor. It turned out to be a very moving and insightful day. We spent extra days days in Hawaii mainly to spend the day at Pearl Harbor. It was well worth it.

    Learned the details of the Japanese attack, honored the fallen soldiers and saw the battleship where the instrument of surrender was signed. Felt very close to some of the most amazing events in history. There is a Memorial wall showing the names of all those killed on that day and information about the Memorial. A moving experience. Don’t miss out on this.

    Even though for our week in Hawaii where we were staying on Kauai, I was able to book this tour in order to visit Pearl Harbor. This was a must see visit since this was probably my only trip to Hawaii. Pearl Harbor where WWII started for America. A day that should never be forgotten. Where brave young died for their country.

    The story of Pearl Harbor is told with candid accuracy. The displays are very good, the viewing of the Arizona moving and the venue is clean and friendly. Freedom isn’t free. This memorial is a grave reminder of that sad fact of life. Every American should go here. We must never forget this, or 9/11.

    A very moving place that tells you their stories. If you go to Ohau you must go to Pearl harbour. The place is beautiful and full of information about war II. No trip to Honolulu would not be complete without a visit to Pearl Harbour. Really drives home what happened there and the impact it had.
