Full day to USS Arizona, Iolani Palace & Ancient Hawaii Temples

Full day historic tour of Pearl Harbor and Hawaii past and present. Learn about Hawaii's past and present surrounding World War II. Remember and honor the war heroes of that infamous day. We visit the USS Arizona Memorial and then on a visual road trip of past and present Hawaiian historic spots and scenic locations. Optional: USS Missouri ( $30 tickets per adult ) USS Bowfin ( $15 tickets per adult )


After your pickup in Waikiki or the cruise terminal you'll be taken on a private tour of Pearl Harbor. On arriving you'll have plenty of time to explore the historic WWII exhibits before the USS Arizona presentation begins with a riveting 24 minute documentary followed by a boat shuttle to the USS Arizona Memorial.
Afterwards you can choose to see more of the Pearl Harbor sites - the USS Bowfin and/or the USS Missouri.
If you decide not to see more of Pearl Harbor you'll go on a historic journey of Hawaii's first arrivals at a Hawaiian temple surrounded by a garden of native trees and plants. You'll learn of Hawaii's ancient and recent history - it's past and present day culture. The tour will bring you into the Ko'olau mountains to the site of the Battle of Nu'uanu at the top of a dramatic vista.  
We'll see Honolulu's downtown significant buildings - the Iolani Palace where Queen Liliokalani was overthrown and the Supreme Court building with the infamous statue of Kamehameha the Great. We stop for lunch.

A Recent Review of this tour

Wonderful Day in Honolulu. We had a lovely day with Marie. We contacted Marie from the cruise ship after meeting another couple who wanted to join us for the Arizona tour. Throughout the day she was flexible and cheerful, handling delays due to loading my wheelchair cheerfully. She is knowledgeable, flexible, and has a nice sense of humor. We felt like we were traveling with a friend. Although she gave us considerable information we never felt lectured. We highly recommend Marie.
