On December 7, 1941, the world changed forever. The events of that day continue to reverberate all the way down to the present. Come see history come to life on a living battlefield.

From the pickup at your hotel, cruise ship, or other location, we'll proceed to the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument at Pearl Harbor. U. S. National Park service regulations don't allow me to accompany you inside, but the site is compact and easy to navigate. After you tour the museum and take the ferry to the USS Arizona memorial, you will have the option of visiting other on-shore memorials, and the USS Bowfin, a WWII submarine.

After your Pearl Harbor visit, we will travel to the Punchbowl National cemetery and visit Pu'u Ualaka'a State Park, from which we will have a panoramic view of the entire city, including Pearl Harbor. Throughout the entire tour I will share my knowledge of WWII history including several eye-witness reports shared with me locals.

A Recent Review of this tour

Josh is very knowledgable about Honolulu history and gave an entertaining and fact-filled tour of the city and the PEARL HARBOR WWII MEMORIALS. We were at the end of a 30 day cruise and had just received word of a very ill close family member but could not get an earlier flight home so we went ahead with the tour. Josh was sensitive to and respectful of our situation and understood when we decided to cut the tour short due to our own lack of concentration. We highly recommend Josh!
