We will visit the monuments that honor those who gave their lives in defense of liberty in the Pacific, as well the battleships that remain, the museums that safeguard the relics of the period and the island treasures that make Hawaii famous. We then continue on to the islands of Guam, Tinian and Saipan, where American forces fought their way towards victory and the end of World War II.

Itinerary

  • Passengers are greeted at Honolulu International Airport and transferred to the hotel in Waikiki. In the evening there is an introduction to the tour and a chance to get acquainted.

  • We spend the morning exploring the USS Missouri, where passengers can stand on the spot where the Japanese surrender was signed, marking the end of WWII. After paying our respects at the USS Oklahoma Memorial on Ford Island, passengers can visit the Pacific Aviation Museum and its hangars holding both Allied and Japanese bombers and fighter planes. The rest of the afternoon is free in Waikiki to soak up the sun or shop around.

  • This day offers a true insight into the natural beauty of the island of Oahu. We spend the morning at Kualoa Ranch on the eastern shores exploring the valley for WW II bunkers and sites where movies such as Pearl Harbor and Jurassic Park were filmed. In the afternoon we take in the views of sprawling Waikiki Beach from the top of Diamond Head crater and enjoy its beautiful state park, dotted with WWII bunkers and pillboxes.

  • We spend the first half of the day at the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument in the heart of Pearl Harbor. The morning features attendance at the official ceremony remembering the fallen of the attack on Pearl Harbor. In additional to crossing by boat to the USS Arizona Memorial, the passengers can also go on board the USS Bowfin submarine. In the afternoon we honor the valor and sacrifice of the heroes of the Pacific Theater at the “Punchbowl” Cemetery followed by a visit to Battery Randolph in Fort DeRussy, housing the US Army Museum, which offers insight into the military role the Hawaiian Islands have played, along with a detailed exhibit on the attack on Pearl Harbor. The evening is rounded off with the traditional Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade on Kalakaua Avenue.

  • Our guests are brought to the airport for their flight to Guam. NOTE: This flight will cross the International Date Line! Airfare from Hawaii to Guam is included in our pricing and arranged by the tour operator.

  • No visit to Guam is complete without seeing the War in the Pacific National Historical Park. We spend the morning exploring the park. In the afternoon we visit Naval Base Guam and Asan and Agat beaches. Asan Beach contains many historic resources preserved from the war: Japanese gun emplacements, pillboxes, caves and tunnels on Asan Ridge.

  • We start off with a visit to Manenggon Concentration Camp and then head to explore some of the natural treasures of Guam, like Talofofo Falls, where Shoichi Yokoi hid in his cave for more than a quarter of a century after WWII ended.

  • We visit the South Pacific Memorial Peace Park, home of the Peace Memorial. We also spend the morning exploring Skinner Plaza, the Plaza De Espana, and an extensive Japanese cave system. After exploring the recently opened Guam Historical Museum, we fly to the island of Saipan, arriving just in time for dinner.

  • We explore a full day’s worth of World War II sites, including Airport Road, Agingan Point Bunker, Obyan Bunker, US 27th Infantry Memorial, Veterans Memorial, US WWII Soldiers Memorial, and a Japanese tank and bunker.

  • Our second full day in Saipan offers a visit to famous WWII sites on the northern shore of the island, including the spectacular Last Command Post, Banzai Cliff, and Suicide Cliff. We also stop to admire scenic points such as the Grotto and Bird Island Lookout. We then visit the Northern Marianas Museum of History and Culture, Old Japanese Jail, American Memorial Park, and Mount Tapocho.

  • During our day trip to Tinian we visit North Field, where the Enola Gay was loaded and launched onto its historic mission. Upon return to Saipan, we take a motorboat ride to discover sunken Sherman tanks.

  • After saying goodbye, our guests are brought to Saipan International Airport for their return flights.
