Visit Historic Honolulu, the Mighty Mo, and the USS Arizona Memorial with IMI Tours

The WWII: Honor our Heroes and Historic Honolulu tour offers everything the USS Arizona Memorial Pearl Harbor Tour offers, plus a visit to the “Mighty Mo” — the USS Missouri Battleship. This giant ship was once a true war machine during her prime, but now she rests quietly at Pearl Harbor. Sitting at over 58,000 tons and coming in at just under 900 feet from bow to stern, the Mighty Mo is a must-see. Not only will you get a guided tour aboard this giant but you’ll get to trace the historical footsteps of General Douglas MacArthur when he signed the treaty ending WWII.

Your tour at Pearl Harbor will begin with your guide coordinating your admission tickets, and self-guided headsets. Self-guided headsets will allow you to experience the museum and other exhibits on display.

Then you’ll enjoy a meal provided by one of Oahu’s local popular restaurants. Then you’ll continue your tour to the often overlooked and under appreciated top attractions located in downtown Honolulu and the surrounding area.  You’ll visit historic sites in Honolulu including Iolani Palace, which is the only palace on American soil along with other historical landmarks like the coral built Kawaiahao Church.  Then cruise through the Punchbowl National Cemetery where your professional tour guide can explain the historical significance and history of the crater.
