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!

Comments about Smart Destinations :

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.
