What a fun day. All of the museums and even the Arizona Memorial. Our guide was a riot, but at the same time very informative. A true historian. Thanks for the great addition to our trip to Hawaii.
We were a family of six. We visited the Big Island but wanted to see Pearl Harbor. After all the research and planning that went into the Big Island plans flights, accomodation, rental car, etc., I looked for a one day tour to Pearl Harbor so that I did not have to research a do it your own tour. I enjoyed this tour, and I am glad that I went this route. I am very glad that we made the effort to see ... morePearl Harbor, the Battleship Missouri, etc. My only note is that it is a long day. Perhaps the tour could be shortened by an hour or two.
The tour boat to the Arizona Memorial was loud and I couldn't get a good picture as we pulled up. I liked that we didn't have to worry about paying entrance fees or flights, but I would have preferred to sit closer to the front of the plane. My husband is the history fan, not me. I enjoyed myself, but he really had a good time. Next time, Ill let him go and Ill sit on the beach.
