Narrated Honolulu City Tour
You and your travel partners have arrived at your dream Hawaiian destination! Why not indulge in a little orientation before heading out on any free-lance exploration of the legendary local culture, landscape, and hospitality? A wide range of narrated educational and historic tours of the state capital of Honolulu await student groups on a tropical holiday, all designed to enhance individual perception and experience through tendering of a basic outline of area landmarks and historic points of interest.
The first, and most memorable stop on any classic city tour – reached only by Navy shuttle boat - would be a visit to iconic Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial, a sobering and moving tribute to the brave servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our great Country on that darkest “Day of Infamy.” Next up: The Punchbowl National Cemetery (Courts of the Missing) where you will find rest inside the Punchbowl volcano an impressive-yet-heartbreaking memorial inscribed with the names of every American gone missing from the WWII, Korean and Viet Nam wars.
The King Kamehameha Statue stands in all its glory across from the grand Iolani Palace – the only royal compound on US soil. The Kawaiahao Church, the first Christian church built in Hawaii, the Mission Houses Museum, the State Library and Archives and the Honolulu Hale – (City Hall) - are all must-see Capitol District attractions; be sure to make time for a tour of the new - and wonderful - Pacific Aviation Museum!
