Pearl Harbor Tour

Overview & Activity Comparison

Witness the location of a world-famous historical event and learn about the role Pearl Harbor and the military have had in Hawaii. On a small group tour, you'll receive round-trip transportation from your lodging, extensive historical and military context from your own local guide (many of them veterans), expedited check-in without having to worry about getting there early enough to secure limited tickets yourself, and an optimized itinerary to maximize your experience in an efficient manner.
Guidebook Reviews

Pearl Harbor has a resonance for all Americans. The site is accessible, evocative, and moving. It’s the top site for visitors to Hawaii.
