Downtown Honolulu is where you will see the only Royal Palace standing on U.S. soil. "Iolani Palace" was built by the last reigning King of Hawaii, David Kalakaua. Today it stands as a proud symbol and reminder of Hawaii's Royal Monarch and Kingdom.
Our final stop at the Home of the Brave Private Museum where you can hop aboard a WWII Jeep and take a photo of yourself relaxing in our nostalgic WWII secret hideaway called the "Wiki Waki Woo Bar".
This tour is dedicated to the many men and women who have served our country and continue to serve in our Armed Forces today. It is because of their love, courage and commitment we remain the land of the free and the Home of the Brave!
