Got to see lots of places of significance in the Peal Harbor attack such as the Arizona Memorial and museum, Wheeler Field, Fort Shafter, Schoffield Barracks and the Home of the Brave Museum. Our guide was exceptional!

BRILLIANT! This is by far one of the best tours I've ever taken. It starts early in the morning, but it's worth getting up for. The early start sets the day much as it would have been on December 7th. Experiencing revelie and the raising of the flag at Fort Shafter was a special moment. It also allows for early... More

One word OUTSTANDING. A great day with non-stop commentary & insights not only to all the historical aspect of every location, but also local knowledge from restaurants to real estate. The tours of every location from Pearl Harbour to lunch alongside serving soldiers on an active base were peppered with unique & very special moments as well as anecdotes. A... More

This tour was the best thing we did while in Hawaii. The tour guide "Duke" was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area and had been conducting these tours or with his parents conducting these tours most of his life. Plus, Duke mapped out a great tour for us to take on the motorcycle rented the following Monday. Great... More

I've had this company's website bookmarked for almost a year, and when the dates for a HI visit were firmed up, this was the first reservation I made. The 'Home of the Brave' tour did not disappoint: It exceeded my expectations. With these kind of all immersive experiences (almost seven hours) a lot comes down to your tour host, and... More

Great way to experience pearl harbour. The tour takes you to army bases that you cannot access on other tours. Very informative.

Even though it rained for a large portion of our tour, we still had a great time. Our guide, Olav, was extremely knowledgeable and kept our attention the entire tour. I don't know how he remembered all the stories, dates, and names but he made everything very interesting. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the... More

As I sit here today wearing my Wiki Waki Woo t-shirt (purchased at their museum at the end of the tour), I can't help but recall the vast amount of wisdom, knowledge, and information provided. Olav, Duke and the others are enthusiastic guides and their ability to recount the details leading up to Dec. 7, 1941, the day itself, and... More

(Actually, Home of the Brave doesn't operate on weekends, so in order to get close to Dec. 7th on a given year, I might have to go the Friday before.) I've met many wonderful friends through these tours, including the Tomlinson family, Olav Holst and Bob Anderson. The tours open your mind to a fascinating, important, bygone era. Where else...
