Allison, Prescott, ArizonaWe were looking for the best Pearl Harbor tours and we decided to do the full thing with the Missouri Punchbowl tour. Totally worth it. Was so amazing to actually see the ship in the water, and the stand where the Japanese surrendered. The pictures we took are now our FB icons and they will probably stay that way for a long time. Thank you Best Tours Hawaii.com
