Round Trip Transportation in a premium coach or limo bus from Waikiki. Regardless of where you are staying, there is a close pickup location to you.

Enjoy seeing different parts of Honolulu City while riding to Pearl Harbor.

Welcome to the Pearl Harbor Visitors Center. This is your home base for the day. Here you will have access to multiple museums, facilities, and the exclusive Pearl Harbor documentary only available right here. This is also where you will board the boats that will take you out to the USS Arizona Memorial.

After enjoying the museums at the Pearl Harbor Visitors Center, and watching the exclusive documentary, it will be time to take the boat ride out to the USS Arizona Memorial to visit the iconic structure the people closely associate with Pearl Harbor. Here you will see the wall of names, the tears of Arizona, and observe a moment of silence to pay respects to the fallen who paid the ultimate sacrifice. *TICKETS TO THE ARIZONA MEMORIAL ARE GUARANTEED

The USS Bowfin Submarine is docked right outside the Pearl Harbor visitors center. The price of admission is not included in this tour, however, you will be able to get an up-close view of the old submarine and take some great photos as well.

After we see all of the attractions at Pacific Historic Parks in Pearl Harbor, we will begin our Honolulu City Tour. The first stop is the statue of King Kamehameha the Great... The famed Hawaiian King who conquered and united the Hawaiian Islands. A very tall man, the statue is larger than life, but not much... King Kamehameha stood at 7' 6" tall.

The Iolani Palace in Hawaii is a significant historical site with a rich history. This is not a full stop, but we pass by for you to see it.

The tour also includes a drive-by of the Kawaiahao Church. One significant aspect of the Kawaiahao Church is its architecture. The church was built using native Hawaiian materials, including lava rock and coral, and it is an example of traditional Hawaiian architecture. The church is also known for its large size and beautiful interior, which includes a high ceiling and stained glass windows.

The tour also includes a drive-by of the Hawaiian Mission Houses. The missionaries who lived in these houses were instrumental in the development of Hawaii's educational and legal systems, and they played a key role in the creation of a written Hawaiian language. The houses also served as important centers of learning and cultural exchange, and they provided a bridge between the Western and Hawaiian cultures.

The tour also includes a drive-by of Aloha Tower. The Aloha Tower has also played an important role in the history and development of Honolulu. It was the site of many important events, including the arrival of the first transpacific flight to Hawaii in 1927. It is now a popular tourist destination and is a well-recognized symbol of the city and state.

It's been a fantastic day, and it's now time to make our way back to Waikiki. Go get some lunch and take a nap on the beach... You've earned it!
