“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I worked on this base for 22 years during my time in the Navy. There is so much to see there and so much history. Definitely a must-see if in Hampton Roads.

We were there to see the Truman deploy. WOW.....What they do and how well they do it is a wonder. God Bless them (Sailors, Marines and crew) and fair winds and following seas.

“Everyone should visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Everyone should visit if for no other reason than to just show your support. But I really enjoyed teh tour. I was amazed at how big the Navy base is - they have their own gas stations, McDonald's, bowling alley, etc. Kinda interesting. The ships are huge! We did not get to get off the tour bus, that was kind of disappointing, and we were not allowed to take pictures. Those were changes since 9/11. But the tour is given by current military personnel and it is definitely worth the visit.

“Tiger Cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Was honored to be allowed to join my son a Machinist Mate on the USS IKE... Great cruise and a great reception at the base.

The base is huge and if you can get a tour go for it...
