If it's your first time in Honolulu, first stop: Pearl Harbor, site of the attack that sparked the U.S. entry into World War II. Then it's on to Honolulu, where your tour guide will give you the scoop on all the major landmarks.

Pearl Harbor and Honolulu City are among Hawaii’s most popular attractions, proving that there is so much more to the islands than pristine beaches, world-class surfing, and stunning wildlife. The Pearl Harbor & Honolulu City Tour is a great opportunity to get in touch with the history of the area while also learning about the tragic conflict that devastated the island of Oahu and changed the course of history forever.

This comprehensive Pearl Harbor Tour is one of Oahu’s most popular sightseeing experiences and should not be missed. The tour lasts between seven and eight hours, departing in the morning and returning in the early afternoon, so plan to spend the entire day with your tour guide. You may choose to spend the remainder of your afternoon reflecting upon the day’s sights and lounging on the beach in Waikiki.

The Pearl Harbor Tour is fully narrated, and is a great option for first-time visitors to Honolulu to get oriented to the city. Here’s a look at the tour highlights:

  • Pearl Harbor: You’ll tour the renovated Pearl Harbor Memorial Museum and Visitor Center, which is the hub for all four Pearl Harbor historic sites; WWII “Valor in the Pacific” National Monument (also known as the USS Arizona Memorial)
  • Punchbowl Crater: Part of an extinct volcano, and now home to the National Cemetery of the Pacific
  • State Capitol: A unique structure, surrounded by a reflecting pool that symbolizes the Pacific Ocean, and featuring two legislative chambers that are cone-shaped to symbolize volcanoes formed in the Pacific Islands
  • Washington Place: Former home of Hawaiian royalty in the 19th century, as well as home to Hawaii’s governors
  • King Kamehameha Statue: A beautiful structure depicting the legendary founder of Hawaii
  • Iolani Palace: The only royal palace on American soil
  • Kawaiahao Church: Where services are still held in the native Hawaiian language
  • Chinatown: One of the oldest Chinatowns in the United States, and your last stop before returning to Waikiki in the early afternoon

Your Pearl Harbor tour guide will point out the history and intricacies of Oahu along this well-plotted route, ensuring your tour is both informative, entertaining, and showcases the beautiful scenery of the island. Your trip to the Pearl Harbor memorials will leave you with a somber understanding of the importance of December 7th, 1941, in the developments of World War II, as well as the impact that day had on millions of people worldwide.

This is a first-rate tour and should be a “must” on any travelers’ itinerary when visiting Hawaii. Save on admission on a Pearl Harbor Tour, plus Oahu's top museums, sights, and tours all for one low price with the Go Oahu Card!

Transportation to Pearl Harbor
By Ninavpl from Hemet, CA on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Pearl Harbor Historical-City Tour:

We made a day out of Pearl Harbor. We started off choosing the Pearl Harbor Historical City Tour, which takes you on a tour of the city on the way to Pearl Harbor via Roberts Hawaii (Big Tour Bus). This was our transportation to Pearl Harbor, as we did not have a car. If you book the Pearl Harbor Narrated City Tour they include the tickets to see the USS Arizona and they already have your tickets, so no rush to get there and stand in line, no need to reserve in advance. We let our bus driver know that we would not be getting back on the bus, that we were staying in Pearl Harbor. Also note, do not take any purses or bags with you. They will make you get a locker and you have to stand in line for that. We took our camera, ID and what we could carry. We did take a plastic bag with water bottles and they let us in with those. We also got our tickets for the USS Bowfin, along with the Pacific Air Museum and USS Missouri when we got there, which they will shuttle you to Ford Island. You cannot drive to Ford Island due to its an active military base. This was a day well spent learning the history of Pearl Harbor and the many brave men that died for our country. To get back to Waikiki where we were staying we had a few options. One was they had a shuttle that would take you directly back to your hotel for about $13 a person, or you could catch The Bus, which we did for $2.50 a person. We were in no hurry and got to see a little more of the city, it was pretty easy. Just book the Pear Harbor City Tour in Advance and sit back and relax.

Pleasant Surprise
By Lauren P from Redwood City CA on
Pros:
Arizona Memorial Included
Cons:
Only Stop Was Arizona Mem
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Pearl Harbor Historical-City Tour:

This was truly a BUS tour as the only stop was the Arizona Memorial, but was pleased that our price included the tour of the Memorial. We had tried to get tickets for just the Memorial, but could not on our own, so was pleased this was included. But there were no other stops throughout the whole tour -- just driving.
