For our Facebook Visitors
Pearl Harbor Tour
With around 2 million visitors per year, Pearl Harbor is the #1 visitor attraction in the Aloha State. Drawing people from all corners of the globe, the Pearl Harbor experience is fun, educational, and impactful. We invite you to come experience history and appreciate the importance that Hawaii played during a significant time in global history.
The most iconic monument at Pearl Harbor is the USS Arizona Memorial pictured above, and it’s the focal point of this tour. If you are looking for half-day activity with lots of ‘bang for the buck,’ then this tour is the perfect option. Spaces are limited, so make your reservation now! The tour returns to Waikiki between 11:30pm–3:00pm depending on time slot.
Your morning begins with Waikiki Pickups, Hot Kona Coffee, and delicious purple Taro Donuts from Kamehameha Bakery. Once you arrive to Pearl Harbor, you’ll check out some great museums and see the exclusive documentary before venturing out to the USS Arizona Memorial. The Wall of Names is one of the more sacred aspects of the visit to the USS Arizona Memorial. Here we are able to honor the fallen soldiers who lost their lives to the perils of war during the attack. A moment of silence is observed in during this time to pay respect for those who gave everything for their freedom.
Once you’ve experienced the core of the experience, we’ll take you out for a tour of downtown Honolulu including the Punchbowl National Cemetery and the statue of King Kamehameha the Great.

Our Tour Guide, Cousin Maia, Was Fantastic!
My sister and I booked this tour on our recent trip to Oahu. Our tour guide, Cousin Maia, was fantastic! His knowledge of Hawaii history, plus the extra stories he told on the trip made this way more than a tour of Pearl Harbor. You can’t go wrong with this deal — and if you’re lucky enough to get Maia, it’s worth twice the price!
We did this on our first morning and it was an excellent experience! Our guide Miah was so nice and informative! The tour at Pearl Harbor was extremely meaningful and a total must see. What made it though, was all of the history and stories Miah told. I recommend this tour with all of my fingers and toes! I can’t imagine anything better! Thank you Cousin Maih! mahalo!
John Junior did an awesome job with our group. He was funny, informative, timely, and entertaining. Our group was ahead of schedule, so he dropped us by a local ice cream shop that was wonderful! He gave us lots of info on Hawaiian and WWII history. He played the ukelele and sang us a song, and is very talented. The donuts and coffee were great too. For us being on a tight time schedule, this was the perfect way for us to get in Pearl Harbor and Honolulu and at a great price. Not having to drive or navigate traffic alone made it worth the price. Maholo for a great morning!
Aloha Pearl Harbor
What a wonderful excursion once again from Aloha Tours! Cousin Nate was our tour guide, historian, proud native Hawaiian and American who filled our trip with stories we will never forget! Visiting the Pearl Harbor Memorial is a once in a lifetime experience in itself. Cousin Nate’s passion and love for his Hawaiian culture and history was a welcoming addition to the day. (Oh.. the donuts were delicious, too!) Thank you!
Happy I Learned About Pearl Harbor!
Cousin Maya (Maia) was great he entertained and included everyone on the way there while getting us there safely. Be ready to participate. Maya great at spontaneous humor and the boat tour guide was also incredibly.professional and sentimental. I did the Hiroshima Memorial museum about a year ago the day after the anniversary of bombing. Very happy I learned about Pearl Harbor I knew so little even though my grandpa was on a merchant ship near Japan during WWII. You will never have a pity party after your visit to Pearl Harbor. Thanks cousin Maria! and everyone! Angelique
We loved the entire day.
Cousin Maia was a great host! We loved the entire day. We ran a little behind on the way to Pearl harbor due to construction traffic & our tickets were actually given away to a different group but..no worries! Cousin Maia had it all sorted out in a few minutes! Highly recommend this tour if you’d like to learn some of the history behind the island. Cousin Maia was very knowledgeable and professional & kept a laid back aloha vibe the entire day. We will be doing the circle island tour next time we visit for sure. Mahalo!
Information that you didn’t learn in school.
Cousin Miah was fantastic! He is light hearted and keeps the mood relaxed. He made a tired early morning group get into a good spirit, and tried to imbue the “Aloha Spirit” throughout the tour. He’s a veteran, and when he’s giving information about Pearl Harbor, makes sure that you remember it’s also a memorial and not simply a tourist attraction. You get a good overall sense of the island and it’s history, and he offers eye opening information that you didn’t learn in school. Also, NONE of the other tours were offering coffee or donuts when you get off the bus!
