OAHU SITES YOU CAN VISIT
With our Oahu Private Tours You Can Do More
Pearl Harbor Visitor Center
Your dayʻs private tour can begin at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. See and hear every important detail regarding the attacks of December 7th, 1941. A short, 23 minute documentary about the attack on Pearl Harbor, including real footage from that fateful day. Linger at the historical memorabilia, photos and exhibits to truly absorb the shock and awe created by this unprovoked attack. Learn about the timeline up to the US entering and ending WWII. Get a greater understanding of how this one act affected the destiny of the US forever. Have deeper insight of the effects of the attack at Pearl Harbor upon Hawaii and the United States of America. After you’ve had your history fix, be sure to rest up and refuel. Lunch / snacks are available for purchase from vendors.
USS Arizona Memorial
After the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center it’s only a short trip to the USS Arizona Memorial aboard a U.S. Navy launch. The memorial was constructed such that you can view the USS Arizona under the water beneath you. Within the USS Arizona lie the 1,177 unsuspecting heroes who died on that horrible “Day of Infamy.” If you look for it, you will see a sheen of oil on the water. This sheen of oil has been dubbed the “Black Tears of Pearl Harbor”, and 82 years later there is still a slow leak of this oil from the hull of the USS Arizona. Every one of the 1,177 crew members’ names who were interred on the USS Arizona are etched in stone and on display. The memorial is a serene and beautiful honor to those who were lost that day. Visiting the ships, the memorial; witness the disastrous attack footage… observe the US flag at half-staff to honor those who gave their lives for our freedom and who still remain certainly helps to bring it into a realistic view. Explore the US’s role in world history, up close and personal.
City Tour and Punchbowl National Cemetery
Then, experience a fun fact-filled, narrated driving tour of downtown Honolulu. This scenic drive, including a drive through Punchbowl National Cemetery, will allow you to discover the cemetery’s meticulously landscaped acres. Enjoy the beauty and honor of this serene area as you drive through and see the Courts of the Missing, the chapel and the finely detailed mosaic maps of the Pacific Theaters of Operation in World War II.
Historic Honolulu Tour Sites
You will also get to visit other popular Hawaiian sites on this tour, including the impressive Iolani Palace, the only royal palace on American soil. You’ll also view Kawaiaha’o Church (the church of Hawaiian monarchs) and one of the oldest standing christian churches in Hawai’i – dubbed the “Westminster Abbey” of the Pacific. The State Library and Archives, the 18 foot tall statue of King Kamehameha, Honolulu Hale (City Hall), and the quaint Mission Houses are also included on this adventure tour, all while your expert knowledgeable driver recounts the rich history of these Honolulu landmarks.

We recommend booking your Pearl Harbor & Honolulu tours in advance of your arrival to Hawaii. Pearl Harbor is our #1 visitor destination and will sell out on certain days of the week. Book your tour for the 1st or 2nd full day after your arrival. Our guests usually get up early in the morning due to the time difference, so you're usually wide awake by the time your tour starts, plus your tour guide will point out highlights not to miss on Oahu. * Tour features & stops are weather and safety permitting.
Our total time at Pearl Harbor is about 3 Hours, or longer if you want to continue visiting other sites at Pearl Harbor, such as the USS Missouri or the Pacific Aviation Museum, or we can explore the Island of Oahu. All our guides providing Honolulu private tours share valuable information to make your vacation overall better! Remember, this is your private Oahu tour and after our stop at Pearl Harbor you get to determine the itinerary. Of course your guide can suggest several “must-see” places on the Island of Oahu, but the stops are entirely up to you!
Private Tour pickup from anywhere on Oahu and included in the price from Waikiki Hotels.
There is an extra charge per group outside of Waikiki. Pickup & Return to the cruise ship pier, Honolulu International Airport, Turtle Bay Resort, Ko Olina, or Airbnb Vacation Rental on Oahu has an additional fee of $100.00 per group.
No host lunch available at Visitor Center and USS Missouri or at another location of your choice. The guide will have a number of great options based upon timing and group preference.
Dress comfortably but please remember that shirts and shoes are required on the USS Arizona Memorial; swimsuits not permitted. Bags are not allowed in Pearl Harbor Visitor Center but if needed may be checked and stored for $7.50 per small bag or $10.00 per large bag. It is recommended only essential items such as phones, wallets, and a water bottle or any needed medicines be brought on tour.
While there is no official dress code to visit the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites, we ask visitors to dress appropriately and respectfully. Swimsuits are not acceptable. High heels, skirts, and dresses are also not recommended. Flip-flops and sandals are permitted; however, we encourage you to wear closed-toe shoes as there is a lot of walking when visiting the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites.
In the event of cancellation or request change to your reservation, please note the following. Tours originating from Oahu, there is no charge for date change or tour change based on tour availability but must be made 72 hours prior to the original tour day. No refunds issued for any tours within the 72-hour period, prior to the start of your tour.
No stop is guaranteed to be operating on the day of your tour. We have no control of Navy and Army operations which may result in the closure of Ford Island or the boats going to the Arizona Memorial without notice. In the event of this occurring, our guides will make up for it in a variety of ways so your experience is always worthwhile.
