  • I think, as well as the USS Arizona Memorial that absolute point should go Japanese. Proof of the scars of war and peace as well as exhibits on board.

  • The memorial is very interesting for young and old, but not overly "exciting". Suitable for it's purpose. It helps you with perspective and the impact on lives, especially at the time. Some nice war a...  more »

  • ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. One of my favorites from my trip. We were the first people of the day so we had it all to ourselves. It was raining but not very hard so we didn't mind getting a little wet on the tour. They were renovating the teak deck in some places and seeing some of the finished areas was absolutely beautiful (especially in the rain when it was wet the colors were gorgeous). The history on this boat is amazing and I love it's proximity to the USS Arizona Memorial. Our tour guide Pol was the best!!!
  • Worth the trip just remember it's a live base so to get in you need to have clearance or you will be turned around at the checkpoint. I went with a coach tour so we were good. The detail the guides go into is fantastic and nostalgic Once the guides finish you can wander at your own leisure. After you can purchase boarding pictures Or go to gift shop. There are a couple of fast food places, Overall great experience
  • Part of the whole Pearl Harbor experience with a lot of good history to learn about. Free guided tour available with ticket purchase, which is not cheap, but fairly priced. I think they offered some foreign language tours as well, we heard a Japanese tour guide taking people around. They recall the Pearl Harbor attack and Japanese surrender as the signing took place on the ship. An informative and interesting experience. Ticket price includes a free bus shuttle which takes about 10 minutes from the Pearl Harbor main area to the other attractions.
  • Wonderful tour given by a 19 year old volunteer who knew history! After a recent renovation, you can take a guided tour of the two upper decks, then follow the well-marked green arrows for a self-guided tour of the lower decks, crew quarters, dining and work spaces, and end with a climb to and tour of the newly opened bridge. Lots of well explained historical memorabilia along the way. Thoroughly enjoyable!
  • Wonderful.not to miss if in Honolulu. Pleasant Tours has a 5 hour guided tour that covers Pearl Harbor and the Missouri as well as the Punch Bowl and surrounding area. Good tour company! Also did a Around the Island tour, excluding Hawaiian Cultural Center. Great tour.
