We enjoyed our trip to Pearl Harbor! This was a very interesting piece of history that we were able to experience in person. The memorial was somber and seeing all of those names was overwhelming-such a sad time in 1941! The city highlights simply had us viewing sites from the bus with a description from our bus driver. We were able to get out once to view historical landmarks such as the statue of King Kamehameha and Iolani Palace. The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific was nice to see from the bus and the grounds/trees were beautiful!

The driver had a lot of information and was funny. Unfortunately it was raining so touring the city we did not get out of the bus. The palace was not open due to Covid. Pearl Harbor was interesting and the Park Ranger on the Arizona Memorial was very informative and you could tell he liked his job and willing to share his information.

Good value

Ernal Smith was our tour guide and he was awesome, full of knowledge and spunk. The whole day was well organised and very moving. The only down side was the pick up, which was meant at 9am but only arrived at 9.30am - we did not know who was picking us up, what vehicle and I had to keep phoning to find out where they were (thank goodness we had a working phone), this was very stressful as we were stood waiting from 8:45am in the HOT sun, no shade or sitting space and kept fretting whether we had missed them or not. The transport when it arrived, was comfortable and air-conditioned, top bus.
