I have taken this tour twice and I highly recommend it! I am a "student" of American military history (mainly 20th century), and have had the fortunate opportunity to visit many battlefields and other important sites in Europe and Asia. I took the last week (21 July 2015) with my 17 year old daughter. Six years ago I took this... More

I traveled to Honolulu recently with my 16 year old son and our same age exchange student from France. We only had one day to devote to a tour and boy did we pick the right one. Our guide Duke was amazing and answered all our questions about anything related to the island and our stay. In addition to being... More

Overall, the tour was very good and our family learned a lot about the events of Pearl Harbor. It was very helpful to visit the many sites as we listened to the story told by Duke, the owner's son, and it allowed us to visualize the events that occurred on December 7, 1941. We would recommend the tour but be... More

As all the previous reviews state, this was the highlight of our trip to Hawaii. Duke was our guide and was so knowledgeable in not only the military history of Pearl Harbor and the military bases and their back stories, he had so much information and little known facts to share re. WW2 and all the military before and after... More

This tour was the highlight for my nephews first visit to Hawaii, along with learning how to surf. Our guide was great. Had lots of audio/visual & stories that kept a high energy kid engaged. This was the best value on Ohau!!! Only difficulty was starting at 5:45 am, but worth it to see the American Flag go up on... More

My dad, a WWII vet, encouraged us for years to travel to Hawaii so we could tour Pearl Harbor. After dreaming about this trip for 46 years, we finally took a 17 day vacation to Hawaii, visiting Oahu, Kauai, and Maui. The highlight on Oahu was our Home of the Brave tour. They have a special relationship with the military... More

This tour was excellent, and just what we were looking for. An early start at 5am, but so so worth it as we got to experience so much throughout the day. Starting at Ft Shafner for the dawn raising of the flag, and onwards to Pearl Harbour. Our tour guide Duke was awesome! He had so much knowledge, not just... More

Yes it was pricey but so worth it! Olav knew more than anyone I ever met about the attack on Pearl Harbor and the other military targets on Oahu on December 7. He was a wealth of information and the stories were extremely well-researched. We watched a Pearl Harbor documentary on History Channel before going to Hawaii and it was... More

We booked this VIP Pearl Harbor/bases tour through Carnival Cruises. It was all day and pricey, but SO worth it. Olav shared so much interesting information and seems to know everyone. He even got us a special visit to an unscheduled Navy memorial room while we waited for another museum to open to us. Olav's well researched stories make the... More
