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

My husband and I joined the tour mostly because the cost if car hire to get to Pearl Harbour is crazy high. But we were so happy we did. The tour guide Olav was absolutely fantastic and knows so much history of the events which occurred on 7 December. The tour was a small 17 person group, not a big... More

Home of the Brave Tour was wonderful and so educational. Our family of five all agreed this was the highlight of our vacation. The information that our tour guide provided was so insightful. I have never met anyone who knew so much of the military history of Pearl Harbor. His tour included videos and photos in his presentation to reinforce... More

If the price of admission somehow rose to a literal arm and a leg I would live the rest of my days out as a cripple. Not only was the tour guide extremely knowledgeable and friendly, but his love for his job and for history definately showed. 11/10 would recommend.

We are so glad we were able to tour Pearl Harbor for the first time with Olav and this tour. His knowledge is astounding. We were at the USS Arizona at 8:30 on the morning of Memorial Day and got ahead of the crowds. We were also able to meet 3 Pearl Harbor survivors....so special. The money spent on this... More

Our tour guide Olav was sensational. He knew more about the history of Pearl Harbor than most. He was very entertaining and informative. Only two issues...the email said to be ready at 5:43 am. We were they weren't so since the time was so exact we thought we we missed them somehow. They were just late due to lots of... More
