  • Loved the tour of the big Mo. I did the extended tour which includes a look into a turret and a dive into the engine spaces. Great. However I was disappointed that you can't see the bridge or get up into the superstructure. That's a big disappointment. Also a lot of the ship is off limits. And the entire superstructure is under wraps for renovations until SEP 2017.
  • Definitely worth taking the tour. Take lots of pictures too. This fine ship has so much history. It is an amazing trip to walk on the same deck that great world leaders walked on and so many soldiers fought on for our freedom.
  • This tour was awesome the guide very informative. He told us so much and made what he said come to life. You get to look the whole ship over and they have awesome photos taken of you. Resonance price since the money helps maintain the ship. Snack bar there too.
  • This one is a little drive on a shuttle bus to Ford Island. The ship itself is massive. You can also have an audio tour with this one, but they weren't clearly marked on where to pick it up. It's near the beginning somewhere...we got all the way on to the ship and they said "Oh you have to pick them up down there." We decided against waiting in line again so we just went around on our own. They were doing the deck restoration or the teak wood deck when we were there. It was really amazing to think of how long this ship had been in commission, and to see the difference in the restored deck to the old deck. I often feel great pride in my country whenever we do a tour at Pearl Harbor. It is amazing the things we have accomplished.
  • Excellent way to experience history! There's no end to what you can see on this ship. If you're interested, give yourself plenty of time!
