The tour was amazing to me. I learned quite a bit as I did not really learn an awfully lot about this in high school....I recommend purchasing the tour with the headsets as you will get audio throughout every exhibit in the museum because the exhibits are numbered and the headsets are in correspondence with those numbers
We decided to tour the Arizona, Bowfin, Missouri and the Air Museum in one trip. We found the Arizona trip to be most informative and heart wrenching, the Bowfin tour, with audio was most interesting in that it gave the listener a great understanding of the various facets of the submarine. The Missouri tour with audio was also interesting because it gave the listener and idea of life on a battleship. The Air Museum was not quite as interesting and because it was the last tour of the day - it became somewhat dry.
We would recommend breaking up the tours - seeing all four, but on two different days.
Hotel pick up was great. Got a call that driver was running late. It was nice that he took the time to make us aware of that fact even though he was still within the allotted timeframe pick up. Good local info on the way there restaurants/bars/neighborhood info as well as on the way back. Very simple direct instructions on drop off times and locations. Our poor driver Rueben had to put up with a lot of unnecessary rudeness from some of the other passengers loud talking, phone conversations, tips given--less than a dollar--in coin!! and was polite and always had a smile the entire time. The tour was informative. Loved having the headsets...some tours did not. Some exhibits were very emotional to see. Definitely recommend this tour.
