The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, forever changed American history. This Polynesian Adventure Tours Pearl Harbor tour takes you on a journey back to that time when the US came together in one voice, rising to a level of patriotism that hasn’t been witnessed ever since. By the tens of thousands, Americans flocked to the recruiting offices around the country to enlist. America was at war. The USS Arizona Memorial is a tribute to those who had their lives taken from them during the attack on Pearl Harbor, but also to all those that perished during the war in the Pacific. This Polynesian Adventure Tours Pearl Harbor tour will have you walking thoughtfully through the complex that is the Pearl Harbor Memorial on Oahu. As you wander through the halls out to glimpse at the USS Arizona Memorial while waiting for the next movie screening of the attack, you will notice the stone memorials that line the lawn. Here is the remembrance to the sister ships of the USS Arizona and the names of their brothers in arms who died during the attack. The movie shown is where smiles will turn somber, where laughing eyes become sad, laced with tears. The movie is so emotional, that your mood will change and your heart will reach out to those who perished. The voice behind the movie is so perfect that, no other vocals could convey such a powerful narration. She is a Japanese-American. The boat ride out to the memorial is somber. As you walk the length of the memorial, 1200 names are etched into boards in remembrance of those who served on the USS Arizona. Looking down through the water, you can see the outline of the ship and the oil that bubbles out, still. Polynesian Adventures Tours take you on a ride through downtown Honolulu to Punch Bowl Cemetery as well, adding to your experience of Oahu. You’ll also visit the National Cemetery of the Pacific. Like its sister in Virginia, rows upon rows of the fallen lay in peace. The day concludes with a tour of the battleship USS Missouri. The Mighty Mo is maintained by veterans that span all wars in our recent history as a nation. It was on these very decks that Japan surrendered to the United States of America officially ending the war.

We had to book last minute on our due to our original tour guide cancelling. We are not big cruise excursion fans preferring to book our own excursion.
The tour bus was small with roughly 24 seats, large side windows and a large window in the front. Our tour guide was great, she was very knowledgeable and pointed out interesting items on our trip up the mountain. Hidden within her narrations were some very funny comical jokes or stories. On the way back down, she kept the narration to a minimum, letting us rest and nap.
There is nothing to describe what you see at Haleakala's summit. To look out across a sky filled with fluffy clouds. The land is tints of red and looks alien. And to watch the sun set was spectacular. There is more to this place, it is a place worshiped by the Hawaiians. It is the House of the Sun.
I am here in Maui on my honeymoon. I booked this tour (Haleakalā) weeks ago. I called yesterday at 7:15pm to confirm the tour since nobody had reached back out to me after providing my hotel information. The representative at dispatch had all of my information (which means that they they received my email with my hotel info). I was told to be at the hotel lobby at 2:30am (different than the 3:00am time printed on my ticket... thanks for letting me know about that before my phone call, Polynesian Adventure Tours). I repeated back to the representative “okay, so we will be at the hotel lobby at the circle by 2:30am. She told us, “that is correct.” I then asked “out of curiosity, what time will we get back?” She told me “4:30am,” which I know had to be incorrect.
I write this review now as I sit back in my hotel room not on the tour because the representative gave me the wrong pickup information. Apparently there’s is a different location that we should have been told to be waiting at. The driver called my HOTEL ROOM instead of my CELL PHONE, which is idiotic since we clearly wouldn’t be in the hotel room if we are waiting for a tour elsewhere.
The company has not been able to provide a resolution yet, but nobody should have to go through this... especially on your honeymoon. STAY AWAY!!
Had a great sunrise tour with Wayne. Wayne was very knowledgeable and had many interesting tidbits. He was quite a talker, and I learned far more than I would have thought possible about the island. Beautiful sunrise, worth getting up early! Breakfast and the snack were a weak point, could use improvement. However, would definitely recommend as a highlight of our trip!
Despite our hotel recommendation to do this tour, I would not advise. Morning started off with the bus being over 20 min late, then we spent almost 2 hrs picking up and dropping other guests, including a stop at the airport. We were on the bus at least 3.5 hrs with no access to snacks or drinks. Then, once we arrived at the top of the mountain, we had just 30min to look around before heading back.
My advise, rent a car and do a day trip yourself, probably save $250.
Polynesian adventure tours provides a island level 5 star experience. When I build my future buisness into a fortune 500 I'll bring them to Maui for a convention and have poly ad bring us on an all island tour.
