About This Honolulu Tour
This incredible tour ushers you back in time to the confusion, devastation, heroic sacrifices, and national sorrow of December 7th, 1941, the day America was launched into WWII by the Japanese attack on her Pacific Fleet in Pearl Harbor. Even now, three-quarters of a century later, it’s indeed a date that continues to “live in infamy.”
Explore two museum galleries of relics, artifacts, and personal effects that bear mute testimony to the tragic events of that day. Witness live footage of the attack before taking a 10-minute boat ride to the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial, erected directly above and straddling the remains of the battleship. Many feel that the occasional “black tears” of iridescent oil still rising from her hull make it the perfect place to honor the 1,177 sailors who went down with her.
Departing Pearl Harbor, we’ll head for downtown Honolulu to view the royal residence of the Kamehameha Dynasty and its 18-foot bronze statue of King Kamehameha I. We’ll also see Aliiolani Hale, recognizable as the site where the original Hawaii 5-0 was filmed.
Lastly, we’ll travel along Oahu’s winding Tantalus Road for an island brunch at one of Honolulu’s best kept secrets: The Honolulu Ridge, a beautifully maintained and privately owned 1920s mountaintop estate!
