This is hands-down the best Pearl Harbor tour for fans of helicopter-flying. Of course, no Pearl Harbor tour is complete without a tour from the ground, so we will start there. After receiving expert guidance and information on the ground at Pearl Harbor, you will see top sites such as the USS Arizona Memorial, the Pearl Harbor Visitor’s Center, a tour around Punchbowl National Cemetery, and a visit to Honolulu’s top historic sites.
After providing an optimum experience on the ground, our day will climax with a 45-minute helicopter ride. Since this time needs to be handled with care, we will be sure to ask if there are any special nearby sites you wish to see during this time. However, one site that you will not want to miss is seeing the sunken USS Arizona from the sky. From there, we will do whatever is necessary to ensure that you are satisfied with your time in the sky.
You’ll be able to skip the long lines once the tour arrives at Pearl Harbor. While at Pearl Harbor, you’ll have 4 ½ hours to view the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center & the USS Arizona Memorial. When you are done with the helicopter ride, we are confident that you will never regret booking a tour with us. This one of the best Pearl Harbor tour packages available since you receive so much quality experience in such little time.
