Tour the Honolulu area beginning with the most moving site on Oahu, Pearl Harbor National Memorial. At the visitor center, we view the galleries and exhibits that recall December 7, 1941, the day that catapulted the U.S. into World War II.

The afternoon brings us past the volcanic shaped Hawaiian State Capitol building and Iolani Palace, the only palace in the U.S. once inhabited by a reigning monarch. We’ll then visit the Punchbowl, an extinct volcano and home of the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
Day 3 : Oahu
Today is your opportunity to explore everything Oahu has to offer. Relax on the golden sands of Waikiki Beach, explore Diamond Head crater, mingle with the fish at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, lose yourself in Honolulu’s downtown ambiance, or spend the day immersed in culture at the Polynesian Culture Center.
