Visiting Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial was a wonderful experience. It was great to have a timed entrance and not to have to hassle with being in the stand by line. The city tour was nice too. The driver was very informative and funny, although I semi-expected to be able to step out and visit Punch Bowl, but it was only a drive-through tour. I would recommend using GetYourGuide for the ease of transportation and arrival with guaranteed entrance to the Memorial.

This was a trip to see Pearl Harbor that turned out to be much more thanks to our tour guide who was knowledgeable about Hawaii and its history. It was well worth the cost.

Tour was great, very informative. Tour guide that took drove us was very nice. Taught us history about Hawaii. City tour was alright

It was a bucket list trip. I was in the USA AIR FORCE during the Vietnam It on my bucket list.

Great tour guide named cousin Dave. Entertaining and informational.
