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 (although aren’t those reason enough for a visit?) 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 through its impact on the events of World War II. This comprehensive 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, and perhaps opt to use the remainder of your afternoon reflecting upon the day’s sights, and lounging on the beach in Waikiki, where the tour ends.
The Pearl Harbor Tour is fully narrated, and is a great option for first-time visitors to Honolulu to get oriented to the city and get a taste of many of the attractions you can explore later in more depth. Here’s a look at the tour highlights:
Your 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, and 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 the beautiful state of Hawaii.

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.
