Offered by Roberts Hawaii, the Stars and Stripes Tour in Honolulu presents a touching and commemorative experience honoring the three historic sites that shaped the outcome of WWII. Learn about the war and its major outcomes by visiting the USS Arizona Memorial, Visitor Center, National Memorial Cemetery, Hawaii State Capitol, Honolulu City Hall, and more.
The Stars and Stripes Tour offers hotel pick-up and drop-off at most major hotels in Waikiki or convenient designated pick-up spots if access is not available at your hotel.
Casual, comfortable attire is appropriate. There will be moderate walking, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes. You may want to put on your sunscreen and bring a hat for the sun, and a light jacket in case of rain. Because Pearl Harbor is a somber, solemn place dedicated to the memory of the service members and civilians who lost their lives, the memorial team asks that guests dress respectfully, no bathing suits or profane t-shirts.
No, gratuities are not included in the cost of the tour.
Due to security requirements at the USS Arizona Memorial, bags and purses are not allowed. Bags cannot be stored on the tour bus.
Cameras are permitted but not camera bags.
The tour includes all admissions, skip-the-line reserved Navy Boat shuttle tickets to the USS Arizona Memorial, a narrated drive through the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl, and a drive through historic Honolulu to see the area's noteworthy landmarks.
Yes, all ages are welcome. Children under the age of 4 years old that are sitting on an adult’s lap and not occupying a seat on the tour bus are free. However, please note that you cannot take strollers on the shuttles, into the theater, or on the USS Arizona Memorial.
You’ll find bathrooms at the Visitor Center, but none on the USS Arizona Memorial portion of the tour, which lasts one hour and 15 minutes. We suggest you take a quick bathroom break before you embark on that portion of the tour.
There will be a lunch break at Sliders Grill (own expense) located in the Battleship Missouri Memorial. Other than clear bottled water, food and drinks are not allowed in many of the Pearl Harbor sites and eating is not allowed on the bus, so leave your treats at home. The tour starts early in the morning, though, so make sure to eat a big breakfast that will keep you full and energized until lunch.
Unfortunately, pets are not allowed on the tour. Only service animals are permitted.
