Cemetery of the Pacific
After this emotional experience, relax in air conditioned comfort as we take you to the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, also known as Punchbowl. This is the final resting place for more than 13,000 men and women who served their country in World War II.
Situated in a long-extinct volcanic crater above Honolulu, it also offers its visitors phenomenal views of the city skyline.

From there, we continue our tour to historic downtown Honolulu, where we will see famous landmarks such as Iolani Palace, the only royal palace in the United States and home to legendary Queen Liliuokalani. Have a look at the Hawaii State Capitol Building and other historic structures.
Conditions permitting, we make a stop at the iconic King Kamehameha statue for a photo op. The 18-foot-tall statue was built in honor of the king who first united the Hawaiian Islands into one kingdom.
