In addition to being a great escort for our full day tour of the Oahu WWII sites, our tour guide Duke enriched our experience with movie clips, documentary footage, and terrific anecdotes that brought the period to life for us. ->>the 2nd bombing of Pearl Harbor, the midget sub officer who ended up leading Toyota Brazil, the embassy spy...You'll have...

My parents had suggested this tour and they weren't wrong. Our guide knew what he was doing and gave us great details and back stories with every place we visited. One of the best attractions was their own museum and the Brewseum next door. Will probably go by before we leave Hawaii just to go to the Brewseum and have... More

Enjoyed this tour but was hard to rouse the family after our Luau the night before....so, take it from me, make sure you get a good nights rest before taking this tour. Loved all the history tid bits we got while on the bus. Our guide, Duke was fun and knowledgable. Our tour bus, however, seemed on it's last legs... More

This tour was booked as a tour from our Princess Cruise line. We had Olav as our guide and the information he provided during the tour was amazing. He was well informed about all the areas and events of the time period. I had seen the Pearl Harbor memorial many times but wanted to learn more about the military bases... More

Loved the tour and our tour guide Olav. His knowledge was impressive, and the care he took to provide more information than he needed to was great. Was disappointed though with how commerical it is but I suppose that's how they make their money.

Olav was our tour guide and he is Fantastic! I will need to take the tour another 5 times to learn everything Olav shared. USS Arizonna, Wheeler Army force base, Scholfield barricks, Fort Shafter - headquarter of the Army Pacfic command , Punch bowl national memorial and then Home of the Brave headquarters. We learned more about Pearl Harbour history... More

This tour was much more than we bargained for. I love US History and this tour made our WWII history come alive. We went to Ft Shafter and witnessed reveille, went to Wheeler Field and Schofield Barracks and also went to Pearl Harbor for an exemplary 27 minute history on the attack of Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941, then...

This is not your standard tour. From the very start, our guide, Olav, took us through an exhaustive history of Pearl Harbor. It's clear that this was not just a job, but a passion for him . It's also clear that the military figures we met along the tour as well as guides from other Pearl Harbor tour companies had... More

Duke was our tour guide, and was a wealth of information. We were able to see sites that no other tour groups are able to access. We were there for the morning parade & flag raising at Ft. Shafter. We also visited the Pearl Harbor area, Wheeler Field, Schofield Barricks & the Punchbowl cemetery. It was well worth our time... More
