“Wonderful trip with E Noa to Pearl Harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Tried to reserve tickets to Pearl Harbor for an upcoming trip and they were sold out for weeks in advance. No need to get up early and wait in line for hours - book with E Noa! We drove to Ala Moana shopping center and parked for free since our hotel was far away. Arranged to be picked up at Ala Moana hotel and the driver, Gaylen, arrived early. He was funny, nice, and so knowledgeable! His military background gave him so much insight into the history of Honolulu as well as Pearl Harbor. A few short stops at other hotels, and we were at the park. Didn't have to spend any time in lines, got our tickets for the 10:30 show and got back on the bus at noon. Would definitely book with E Noa Tours again.

Aloha LvtoPack,
Pearl Harbor tickets are hard to come by as these are very popular historic sites to visit. Thank you for this excellent feedback! We will pass on these kind words to Gaylen as we know he will appreciate your compliments. We hope that you will return to visit the ohana at E Noa Tours! Mahalo nui loa (“thank you very much”) for taking the time to write this review!

“Great way to tour Hawaii”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

The tour guides are very informative and the small buses they use are great for getting around.WE took the Pearl Harbor tour and the CIrcle I sland tour. They were both worth it.

“Gonzo – the Tour guide with the most Aloha!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We are so glad we booked the Pearl Harbor tour with E Noa – we were originally going to do it ourselves but left it too late to book the tickets online. The tour was so easy and hassle-free, I was worried about the half day tour being too short but it was really plenty of time for a first visit to Pearl Harbor, we were able to do the two museum exhibitions, the Arizona memorial, browse the bookstore and wander the grounds comfortably in the amount of time allocated – we didn't feel rushed at all.

The very best part of our tour though was our amazing guide Gonzo – he is hands down the best tour guide I have experienced. He was factual, outgoing, approachable and so friendly. On the way back to the hotel drop offs he was the perfect comic relief after feeling very moved at the memorial. We were the last drop off and were able to have a proper chat with him, he gave us instructions on where to get Leonard’s Malasadas as well as other helpful tips for our last few days in Honolulu. We met many great people on the Island – but no-one had more ‘Aloha’ spirit than Gonzo did!

We agree! Gonzo’s the man! And I’m glad you found us when you were unable to secure your own tickets to visit the Arizona Memorial. We try to make your visit as hassle free as possible, and I hope you enjoyed those malasadas!

“Best and most affordable tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We completely enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide Shannon Obrien was phenomenal. He is so knowledgeable about everything on and around the island. His knowledge if history is amazing. This tour was a comprehensive overview of the island and Pearl Harbor. The value and cost was well worth it. I recommend this tour, we debated renting a car and going out ourselves. I'm certainly glad we decided to go with E Noa Tours.
