Get an early start with morning pickup from your Waikiki hotel, then travel by air-conditioned coach to Pearl Harbor. Entering the popular attraction is easy with your skip-the-line admission ticket.
Inside the visitor center, browse exhibits that detail the attack that catapulted the United States into World War II, and see authentic artifacts from that era.
Next, ride a Navy launch to the USS Arizona Memorial, situated above the submerged remnants of the ship. Continue to the USS Missouri for a guided tour of the famous American battleship that served from WWII until the 1990s Desert Storm operation.
Then go to downtown Honolulu to view Kawaiahao Church, the King Kamehameaha statue, Hawaii State Archives, and Honolulu Hale. Finish with a visit to the Iolani Palace and the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Your tour ends with return to your Waikiki hotel.
