Escape to another Hawaiian island for a day on this all-inclusive tour. Hop on an inter-island flight from Kahului, Maui to Honolulu on Oahu for a once-in-a-lifetime, comprehensive Pearl Harbor WWII tour. Walk in the footsteps of Americas courageous heroes, from the site of the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor to the site of the signing of the surrender aboard the USS Battleship Missouri. View the Arizona Memorial, the resting place of more than 1,000 sailors who perished in the 1941 attacks. The National Park Service is temporarily limiting the number of visitors to the Arizona Memorial due to dock stability concerns; therefore tickets are not guaranteed to boat the Navy launch boats out to the memorial. At the Visitor Center, browse harbor side exhibits and historic displays on your own. Airfare and roundtrip transportation from the Honolulu International Airport (HNL) on Oahu is included. Enjoy a scenic drive through Punchbowl National Cemetery and downtown Honolulu.

    Chris & Chris tried very hard to make it an interesting & memorable trip. More time at Pearl Harbor to read everything & watch the movie. Stop at Waikiki Beach for an hour to get our feet wet in the ocean. Traffic was terrible & Chris did a great job!

    Absolutely amazing and beautiful. It makes a difference when you have a fun and hilarious tour guide. Ernie. Hands down the best.

    Tour of Pearl Harbor was very educational, with sunken ship and submarine to up close. I learned a lot seeing the museum photos and watching the short "movie" about Pearl Harbor attack. Plenty of gift shops and food venders. There was a veteran at one of the gift shops autographing books that had just been released.

    We had a wonderful time. Booking the trip was easy. Everyone involved were great. We arrived at the airport and were greeted by George, who explained the whole process, gave us our tickets and took us were we needed to go to catch our flight. When we arrived on Oahu we were met by a young lady who took us to our bus and we were on our way. Ty was our driver and we couldn’t have had a better one. He greeted everyone, remembered our names (quite impressive) and did an excellent job during the tour. Explained where we were, gave a history of what we were seeing and how the day would go when we were off the bus. We couldn’t be happier. Everyone was very professional and friendly. We had a great time because of how great they were. Thank you to everyone for making it a wonderful day!

    The theatre on Pearl Harbor and the memorial. Very good experience. Everyone should see this and know its history.

    We took the Polynesian Adventure Tours(PAT) day trip from Maui to Honolulu to see Pearl Harbor including Honolulu highlights. The Arizona Memorial and the Battle Ship Missouri were very moving, especially for this veteran, but that positive experience had nothing to do with PAT which added little value overall. First, their guide doesn’t accompany you on the tours of Arizona and Missouri. At Pearl Harbor all he did was hand us the entrance tickets. The second half of the tour, the so-called Honolulu highlights, was a boring waste of time doing a bus window drive-by. At the end at 3:10pm we began dropping off various Honolulu groups at their hotels in Waikiki. At 4pm only the four of us from Maui were left on the bus. Our airline departure time, chosen by PAT, wasn’t until 7:30pm so we asked Ron, What are we supposed to do now? He didn’t have a good answer other than we could get off the bus and look around for 1.5 hours and then he’d pick us up and take us to the airport. We were dumbfounded so we asked him to call his office and get us on an earlier return flight. After a few minutes he came back and said that the office said that they couldn’t do anything to change our scheduled flight. When we arrived at the airport we asked Hawaiian Airlines to put us on an earlier flight and they said that that was the responsibility of PAT who had bought the tickets. After we explained that PAT wouldn’t help us, they took pity and put us on the earlier flight and even waived the $30 per ticket change fee. What did I learn? I’ll never use PAT again. Second if you want to tour Pearl Harbor from Maui, buy your own airline tickets and take a taxi from Honolulu to Pearl Harbor and back.

    We took a cruise of the Hawaiian Islands and one of the excursions offered was a tour of the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, with a drop off at the airport. This enabled us to get priority disembarkation, bus ride to Pearl Harbor, boat ride out to the Arizona Memorial, and bus ride to the airport. The best part is that they keep the luggage secured on the bus during the tour.

    For the money, we were a little disappointed. Spent a lot of time sitting and listening to history, a lot of it was not Hawaiian history. Could’ve seen more of the island if the time was better managed.

    We had a great tour with Polynesian Adventures! They took care of everything free m beginning to end seamlessly. No stress here! Our tour guide, Kaleo, was a wealth of knowledge about all things on our tour and made the day entertaining. I can’t say enough good things about him! We would highly recommend this tour, Polynesian Adventures, and Kaleo to anyone interested. Thank you!
