You will continue your tour with a guided tour around the battleship USS Missouri where the unconditional surrender of the Japanese marked the end of world war 2. It was involved in the operations at the invasion of Iwo Jima and Okinawa and participated in the Korean and first Gulf war.
Your tour will conclude with a trip through downtown Honolulu showing you the Iolani Palace and King Kamehameha Statue.
