5 out of 5 stars. Outstanding tour company and one of the best tour guides I’ve ever met. Eli was fun, knowledgeable, respectful, and made everyone in the van feel like long time friends. He went out of his way to be helpful, answer questions, and give us a glimpse of local life from his personal stories. The van was so much nicer than a big bus and we were able to get to places the bigger vehicles can’t access. Plus the smaller group size is a bonus.
The trip was fantastic, and visiting the Pearl Harbor Memorial, the USS Arizona Memorial, and the Battleship USS Missouri, was a moving experience for everyone. Our tour guide Eli, made the trip easy, relaxing, and fun. I highly recommend this company for anyone visiting Oahu!

Best tour ever. Our tour guide, cousin JJ, was fun and made learning about Pearl Harbor and the hawaiian cultural/history fun and interesting. He was also great and patient with our 10-year-old son, who was very talkative with him. Thank you. This was a 10 out of 10 tour hands down.
Awesome experience! Cousin Shaq was great, very informative and engaging. We had a private tour and he took us everywhere we wanted to go and even recommended a great restaurant. Highly recommend!
I highly recommend this company. driver and guide, JJ, was fantastic. We did the Pearl Harbor and Circle Island Tour, and JJ safely and comfortably made sure we git to see and enjoy everything. He knew all facts and points of interest, incuding some non-touristy ones. Example, at the North Shore, he recommended a food truck just yards away from the high priced and crowded touristy ones. Wow, it was probably the best meal of our trip!, and we got to eat with locals and other guides. ( its a light blue food truck called ‘Da Bald Guy’. Delicious Shrimp, Steak, Fish, Sides, etc). Also, my sister just completed chemo, and was weak, but JJ made she she was comfortable and got to see and experience everything possible. All the ladies in the reservation dept were super nice and friendly too. While there was some confusion over a change we made, JJ contacted us the day before to assure all was set correctly and ready to go. Once again, I highly recommend this tour company for your Hawaiian sightseeing needs.

Anton was a great guide. Very informative and knowledgeable. We did the Oahu circle tour. Really great way to see the island in a day!
Great first impression. Our tour guide Chelsea was amazing. She made the entire day so much fun! Her knowledge of Hawaiian food places really helped us find amazing, authentic meals. The tours themselves were brilliant. Respectfully done with honor to what occurred.
Great driver of the Wakiki bus- Mr. Finny – gave a lot of information on the drive, waited for family members who were caught by buses coming back from the Missouri. Would definitely recomment requesting him for your tour driver.
Great Tour- perfect tour guide.
We used Waikiki tours. It was a double decker bus and everything about the tour was great from start to finish. Our driver was Nani and he was amazing. True passion for what he does and have great history of Waikiki on the bus drive to Pearl Harbor.
I was SO WORRIED that we would not be able to actually get tickets to get on the Arizona. I have read lots of reviews and comments online from frustrated travelers booking a tour just to find out they needed to stand in a line to wait for tickets.
I was SO RELIEVED that this tour confirmed our tickets a day prior to our arrival and we were able to get our tour completed without waiting or standing in line.
Our tour bus driver was Juicy and he was great! Funny, competent and friendly! He arrived promptly and complimented us for being ready to go early. He outlined the agenda and program in a manner that was fun and interesting.
Highly recommend this tour and company!
Pearl Harbor Tours was a wonderful company to work with. Very efficient, kept us informed and were always friendly to answer questions.
Sage was our tour guide and he made our tour very memorable. Very informative, very respectful of the memorial. And then during our drives, he had a fun sense of humor. I’d recommend them to anyone coming over to Oahu!
We thoroughly enjoyed our day with tour guide extraordinaire Willy. Not only was he highly knowledgeable about the history of Hawaii, Pearl Harbor and modern sites of interest, he was also funny and personable. The small group size added enjoyment as the group got to know each other. Highly recommend this tour! It’s a must!
This tour is the way to go if you plan on going to Pearl Harbor. We booked the smaller group and it was so worth it. We felt a little rushed at a couple of spots but that isn’t because of the tour, we were just slow. Will was our tour guide and he was phenomenal. He kept us engaged the entire time and answered all our stupid questions very professionally and politely. We did transportation from Waikiki, Will talked about the history of Oahu and Hawaii the entire time while driving. He gave us restaurant and shopping ideas, pointed us in the direction of some lesser known and cheaper areas to eat and shop. I cannot see myself going to Pearl Harbor again without booking a tour. I would have been so lost there without Will to point us in the right direction and to keep us moving so we didn’t spend the whole day at one location.
At the USS Arizona Memorial, we were able to move through the exhibits at our own pace which was nice. And our tour provided a ticket for the boat to the Arizona itself. An excellent site, words cannot describe this historical memorial. The USS Missouri was my favorite because it was more interactive. First off, the battleship is huge! The battleship has been repurposed as a museum, but in a way that requires you to walk throughout the ship. It takes about 2 hours to get through the whole ship. There are also food trucks and snack bars located at this site for a lunch break or snack. (TIP: Try the Dole Whip if you haven’t already!) After visiting the main historical sites, on the drive back to Waikiki, our tour guide drove us through the National Cemetery as well as by the Iolani Palace. We were able to stop at the King Kamehameha Statue for pictures as well as play around under a 160 year old Banyan Tree. Very neat!
Overall, I would highly recommend booking a tour with Pearl Harbor Tours, they truly take care of you! Thank you Cousin Shaq for an incredible day of touring.
So much history to learn and see. Walking through the museum (free) and understanding more of what had happen is astonishing. The books are one thing but when you walk through here it’s almost emotional.
I didn’t have tickets but waited a short time (during the week) in the “stand by” line and got to go for free. It was an amazing and poignant tour. The boat ride is a short few minutes and then you’re at the memorial. Immediately you can feel the collective sadness that lingers there. We were given a short historical lecture about the events of the day, and the details were very powerful and haunting. Definitely recommend. Takes about 45 min total.
I did the Pearl Harbor tour with the private tour add-on through this company in April and really enjoyed it. I had booked a last minute trip over spring break so rental cars were sold out. Aaron picked us up promptly from our hotel in Waikiki, got us through our Pearl Harbor Tour, and took us all around the island. Between this tour and some Ubers from Waikiki, we were still able to see everything we wanted to see without paying rental/parking fees and would absolutely take this route in the future. I was traveling with two younger children, and Aaron was great with the kids too, even finding my five-year-old son fries for lunch. When we were on our way back to the hotel, my son declared Aaron his favorite memory of the day and asked for the rest of our trip when he could go eat fries with him again. Aaron was candid in his recommendations about what to prioritize seeing, and we enjoyed his stories and help. We returned back to a beach he’d recommended for turtles on a later day and saw a ton. Thanks Aaron!
