I have been on all 3 tours .on 3 different occasions. but it was a lil while back!! Beautiful ship and she earned her right to watch over the USS Arizona. ..^^^^ If you go ---it is a must to get a guided tour..... I think the tour that had the lunch in the Captains cabin was called the Captains Tour... It does cost more.. yet you will never have another opportunity to experience the exclusive Captains living space on any other tour so if available take that chance.... because i just checked the website and I believe it is no longer available...(like i said it has been a while ) . The explorors tour will take you down into the ship where you will explore many levels and compartments, learn how she runs as a ship and what is needed to get her going ... and going strong..The tour guide provided many amazing facts about the ship! **FYI we climbed many ladders so i think this is not for small children and ok for the older children. The second visit if I am not mistaken, I took the Guided Tour...This is the least expensive and you will feel like that is the best 7 dollars you have ever spent on any tour!!...Very informative/1 hour tour where you will learn about the ship's basics, her proud history, weapons, everyday life onboard, and of course you will hear her many stories .... and about that day.... when the surrender was made.. when the war that took so so many lives finally ended .. (over 40 million were killed)This is kinda like the happy ending to that tragic day that began at Pearl Harbor.... The Missouri is there to watch over the Arizona and crewmembers.. and she won't turn her back! after the tour we were free to roam ..we looked at displays /museum and the ships huge model that is onboard/ . there is food and just so much... oh and there is a tour i did not do.. the audio... i dont know anything about it .. but i did read it can take all day to listen to all the info .. so just a heads up ..MORE INFO: It can get hot so wear cool clothes, and bring water and sunscreen. AND read the security measures that are posted on the website.... so you know what to expect .. Ford Island is still an active base so there are certain measures.. and dont forget your camara!!!You can use vid cam once on the ship .. only not while you are getting there/ !! And remember she is maintained through donations, and many staff you see are probably volunteers,,, so visit this hero with an open heart.... :) You're Gonna Love the experience!!!!!
