“Must-do for history buffs”

Be ready for a crack-of-dawn start and a full day. The tour guide was a fount of information about the Pearl Harbor attack and Honolulu in general. The tour includes not only Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial, but a number of other sites involved in the attack and depicted in many movies. The tour finishes at their eclectic museum of WW II artifacts.

“Very interesting and well organized”

Duke was a great tour guide, who clearly knows and has a lot of respect for the events of Dec 7, 1941. In addition to his running commentary, they also showed a number of relevant video clips to help while away any time while stuck in traffic. However, the tour is planned in such a way as to minimize travel times and avoid as much of the Honolulu/Waikiki traffic as possible. Well done!

“Best tour of military sites in Hawaii”

Duke is a very knowledgeable and personable young man. His enthusiasm is infectious. The access this tour has is amazing. The active military bases you get to see and the experiences on there such as listening to the bugle call as the Stars and Stripes are raised at the HQ of the US Army in the Pacific is incredible.

I would highly recommend this tour. I had a great day and really enjoyed it. Great job guys.

“Excellent Tour with an Excellent Guide”

Thanks Olav for a fascinating & informative day . An early start, 6 am pick up, this tour not only takes you out the Arizona Memorial and visitors centre, but we also saw the flag raising at Fort Shafter, and toured around both Wheeler Army Base & Schofield Army Barracks.

We did a slow drive through the Punchbowl National Memorial and finished up at what would have to be one of the more personal, private Museums. All throughout the day Olav kept up a steady stream or both historical information and personal accounts of events. Truly an educational experience. Would highly recommend it to both the enthusiast & layman. Well done.
