Dreaming of visiting Pearl Harbor? Touring the Battleships of World War II is an exciting way to experience American history and explore one of Oahu’s most famous attractions!

Complete your trip to Pearl Harbor with a comprehensive tour of these sites, plus take an exciting driving tour through historic downtown Honolulu!

Board the USS Arizona Memorial and feel the emotions of the solemn reminder of the attacks that struck Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Peer into the hull of the sunken battleship and view the names of those lost on the Remembrance Wall.

All museum admissions are included with this tour, including a guided deck tour aboard the USS Missouri! Explore the famous battleship, which served in more than 50 years of war and conflicts and is the most celebrated war vessel in United States history.

Experiencing these amazing places is sure to create lasting memories and enrich your vacation. With three departure times, visiting Pearl Harbor has never been easier to schedule. Departing later prevents you from feeling rushed or pressured to be ready early in the morning.

Frequently Asked Questions
While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or a increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Most companies have a set of centrally located hotels that they do pick ups from. Since Waikiki is a very small area, if they do not pick up at your hotel, it will be from another one that will be a 3-5 minute walk. This makes the pickup process short so you can start the tour as soon as possible!
We take great pride into making your experience with us perfect. From the moment you begin considering Discover Hawaii Tours to your final drop-off with our tour guides, we go to great lengths to make sure your day is worry-free and that you get to experience the best of Hawaii. Our tours operate in smaller buses, allowing for more stops, getting you closer to the best spots, and giving you a more intimate experience.
Our tours are conducted in 25-passenger mini-coach tour buses with Discover Hawaii Tours logos on the sides. Our friendly expert guides are dressed in red polo-style shirts with our logo and black slacks.
Founded in 1995, we have been operating without causality or major accident for more than 15 years. Your safety, satisfaction, and input is a way of life for our company.
During the booking process online, there is a ‘Message’ box where you can let us know of any food allergies (when lunch is included), special occasions, requests, and any other important information that you feel is necessary. We take your tour personally, so rest assured that we will do our best to make sure that your requests are met and your tour is a perfect experience.
Our tour guides are our main assets to us, and you. After completing an intense 2 week training course in driving safety, Hawaiian culture, United States and Hawaiian History, customer service, and First Aid and CPR training, they become Hawaii's Ambassadors of Aloha.
Yes! We carry Commercial Use Authorization for all of our Pearl Harbor Tours, which allows our tour guides to enter Pearl Harbor’s Museums, are an authorized transportation company for Pearl Harbor, and are allowed to transport our guests to Ford Island. Additionally, we are an Authorized Transportation provider for Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and conduct tours to the world’s most active volcano, Mt. Kilauea.
At this time, our vehicles can accommodate collapsible wheelchairs only. We do not have a wheelchair lift. We ask that you let us know at the time of booking your tour that you will be traveling with a collapsible wheelchair so that we are able to make sure you are fully accommodated.
We do not provide or rent car seats at this time and the law does not require car seats on tour buses. If you wish to bring one, you will have to pay the cost for the seat on tour.
Yes, we have scheduled bathroom stops along the routes that coincide with scenic lookouts, beaches, and other stops and attractions throughout your tour. Should you require additional stops please let your tour guide know at the beginning of the tour and we will be more than happy to accommodate your request.
For your safety, please check with your doctor and find out if there are any limitations to your touring. Some sites have more medical concerns than others, like the Volcano on the Big Island, so be sure to find out of any restrictions you may have and we need to be aware of.
Yes, we have been working successfully with travelers of all ages since our inception and we wouldn't have it any other way! We do ask parents to keep their children under control at all times for the child’s safety and the enjoyment of others. Hiking tours are not recommended for infants, toddlers, and seniors who may have trouble climbing uneven terrain.
Yes, admission to Pearl Harbor is free. As is the film about the Pearl Harbor attack and the boat ride to the USS Arizona Memorial. Our tours consist of much more than that. Besides the transportation, your tour includes a narrated drive from Waikiki to Pearl Harbor with a professional guide. Both the guide and narration enhance your experience at Pearl Harbor and the round-trip transportation saves the headaches of driving and finding parking (the parking lot is currently under construction) When you’re unfamiliar with an area, it can be difficult to navigate the roads and highways. Following your program at the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Park, your guide takes you to many places that you may not get to see on your own. Imagine that you are driving through downtown Honolulu, and you pass the beautiful Iolani Palace, not knowing what it is you’re seeing, or the history of the treasured palace. With your friendly guide, you will know exactly what you’re seeing, its history, and maybe even an inside fact or two.
Availability here changes constantly. We can tell you something is available and then 5 minutes later someone else books and its not available anymore. If you make a booking and your activity is not available, then you will not be charged. No hassles, no worries!
H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend so much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.

Pearl Harbor happened the day before my mother's 18th birthday. I am almost 64. For most of my life, the only interest I have had in visiting Hawaii has been to see the Arizona Memorial. Finally, we are retired baby-boomers who decided to take a Hawaiian cruise. After reading about the experiences of a few who have taken the shore excursion on the last day of the cruise, we decided to arrive in Honolulu ... morea couple of days early and do this tour independently, so that there wouldn't be the rush to get people to the airport, etc. We are SO glad we chose the Discover Hawaii tour! Our tour guide Kevin was the BEST - he was funny and full of information about history and culture. He made instructions very clear about when to be back to the bus - patiently repeating it each time for those who may not have been paying attention the first three times. I loved his little tips, like when we first boarded the Arizona Memorial, we should head straight to the back where the shrine is...I got several great pictures before there were 30 other people in the room, all wanting to get to the front with their cameras. I was pleased that everyone was so respectful while in the shrine - the only thing I heard was the click of cameras. The docent on the USS Missouri was also very entertaining while extremely informative - that was a great visit - and Kevin offered to take our picture just as we boarded. I wish we could have spent more time at the Punchbowl, just to take it all in, but since it was raining (and we weren't allowed to get out of the bus anyway), Kevin made us aware of all of the interesting points. He was never in a hurry, and this job must sometimes be exhausting for him, but he was great right up to when he let us off at our hotel. I am in total agreement about TIPS. For pete's sake, people, tip your tour guides! I gave him $15 and wish it was more. But whatever, it's the gesture that counts - it tells him he did a good job, and Kevin did!

We thought the tour was EXCELLENT this was our first visit to the Islands from England. Our tour guide Jonathan was great, he looked after everyone in his party the whole trip, telling us where we needed to be at what time. He was very informative and we enjoyed the added humour as well. Our Peal Harbor tour will be one of the memorable experiences of our time in the Islands. We are happy to recommend ... morethis company to others and will use their services again on our next trip to the Islands. Mahalo
