Lots of info and sites to see
teresa_d, May 2023
Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and had lots of history to share. Pearl harbor was great, lots of info and a very sacred experience.
The experience at Pearl...
Robert_F, May 2023
The experience at Pearl Harbor itself was the most memorable. However I would have liked more time there. The tour was to include a tour of Honolulu. With the exception of two buildings that did not happen. My experience with Viator in the past has been excellent. This was not.
Response from Host, May 2023
Aloha Robert and Mahalo for your review of Daniels Hawaii. We are happy you had a great experience on our Pearl Harbor Tour. Our guests have 3 hours to explore Pearl Harbor National Park and its museums and exhibitions. Daniels Hawaii reserves tickets for the boat ride to the USS Arizona. Daniels Hawaii Guides walk with the guests into the park to give a introduction - the guide explains the premisses to make your Pearl Harbor visit as efficient as possible. After your Pearl Harbor and USS Arizona visit the guide heads towards downtown. In downtown Honolulu Daniels Hawaii guides stop at the ALOHA Tower. After ALOHA Tower the guide parks the vehicle at the King Kamehameha Statue, to start the ~25 minute walking tour. Learn about King Kamehameha, the overthrow of the Hawaiian Monarchy, walk past Iolani Palace to the Queen Liliuokalani Statue and the Hawaii State Capitol. Learn about Father Damian as you stand next to his statue, before looking over to the eternal flame on the other side of the road. Walk back to the van and listen to more interesting stories about Hawaiian Culture. Daniels Hawaii Guides are proud to share their knowledge and educate our guests in an entertaining way. Daniels Hawaii Pearl Harbor Tour lasts about 5-6 hours...no rush! :) Reading this and thinking you might need more than 3 hours at Pearl Harbor? We are happy to take you on a private tour to Pearl Harbor. Our private tours last for up to 7 hours and you can customise the itinerary to your liking. Just get in touch with Daniels Hawaii Customer Service to find out more. Much ALOHA, DanielsHawaii.com
A tour to take
James_G, May 2023
Matthew is a great guide and was a particularly talented storyteller. His humor enlightened the whole experience.
Respect for the fallen
David_K, May 2023
Tour was very informative! I knew a lot about the event but acquired additional facts! Being a the memorial only increases a persons respect for those that died in defense of our country!
Pearl Harbor Arizona Memorial
Barry_R, May 2023
Visiting the Arizona memorial was an experience I will always remember. I have seen film, read articles for many years about the events of December 7th, but there is nothing like actually standing on the grounds and viewing the USS Arizona below the water line , in person.
Kathy and Dave’s Pearl Harbor Trip
kathy_t, Apr 2023
Great trip and our tour guide was very smart on all the history. He was funny and knew a lot of facts ,the guide was prompt and a good driver in very heavy traffic. I would highly recommend him and this tour through this company Viator, they were very helpful on the phone and very patient and professional and the prices were well worth the quality of service you received. I would love to take this tour again with them.
Pearl Harbor and City Tour
Edna_B, Apr 2023
We had a great van - Mercedes Sprinter. Pickup from our hotel was on time. Our Guide Mathew was very knowledgeable. Enjoyed the city tour after the Pearl Harbor visit. There is no guided tour inside the Pearl Harbor Area. You are on your own to explore which was great for us.
Tour was exactly what we needed ta complete our visit to the Island
Richard_S, Apr 2023
Great knowledge of Hawaii. Friendly and respectful. Matthew shows his Hawaiian respect for the State, the people, the past and tourists visiting.
Excellent experience!
Beth_M, Apr 2023

Amarilys_G, Apr 2023
Great your. Our driver and tour guide ( Matthew) was truly wonderful, knowledgeable, polite, friendly. Definitely recommend it.
Excellent tour!
Becky_M, Apr 2023
Ty was a great tour guide, took his time showing us sights, gave us lots of history and culture tidbits during the bus ride thru town. Booking a tour was a sure way to know we’d get to the USS Arizona. So glad we did this!
An Education I hadn’t Anticipated
Carole_D, Apr 2023
Although I thought I knew the story of what happened that day - I found the film absolutely essential viewing to fully appreciate the facts. Coming from the UK I hadn’t expected to be so moved at the memorial. The whole experience will stay with me always.
10/10 would recommend!
Gillian_R, Apr 2023
Ty was an awesome tour guide! He texted me to let me know he was on his way and when he arrived as well as offered some AWESOME recommendations after our tour. He was patient while answer questions and had a great sense of humor the whole tour. The stops were just long enough at each site and we were really grateful to be able to see Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona without the dedication of an entire day in the heat. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested, especially those traveling with family or friends!
Exceptional Tour!
Chelsea_B, Apr 2023
This tour was so informative and enjoyable! Our tour guide, Matthew, was fantastic! We loved the smaller group vibe and the personable experience Matthew provided. Not only did we go to Pearl Harbor, but we got a historical overview of the island, including a trip to the capital and royal palace. I would highly recommend this tour!
Wonderful Experience
Donna_M, Mar 2023
The tour began by Ty finding us because we had gotten lost finding the assigned pickup point. He drove us to Pearl Harbor and told us how to catch the boat to the USSArizona Memorial. After leaving Pearl Harbor he drove us to the Hawaii supreme court for views of the Iolani Palace. My husband and I left the tour this point to tour Iolani Palace on our own. Ty texted us later, giving us good information on things to do and places to eat even though we were no longer part of his tour-far above excellence in customer care!!!
Great tour & great tour guide
Liz_B, Mar 2023
We had a great tour with Mathew, he had so much knowledge to share about the island & its history, we thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. Would not hesitate to recommend the tour and the guide himself.

Linda_R, Mar 2023
It was a nice trip and Matthew was an informative and patient guide. I really enjoyed the somber experience of Pearl Harbor.
Ty the tour guide
Marya_B, Mar 2023
Ty was a great tour guide. Lots of fun. Great day. Take your famliy and friends on this tour. You wont be disappointed.
Avoid this tour-no personal service
Don_H, Mar 2023
The ad is a lie. Small group ensures "personal service". The assigned pickup was 45min late. After the last pickup, 15 min, we rushed to our 9:15 boat tickets arriving at 9am. The guide told us to hurry to boat or miss the ride. He indicated to pick up at 12 noon but changed to 1pm. (4hrs too long). He left the group unlike other guides in the complex with groups. The van dropped us off 200 yards from door, too far for handicap persons. And he rushed the group due to time leaving us in the parking lot. My wife immediately took a taxi back to hotel, $73. My grandson and I took the tour but calculating the 1pm pickup, the remaining 8 stops advertised, this would be an 8hr trip. We too left the group and paid $75 taxi fee. There are other tours, search around but avoid Matthew Thomas.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Review Aloha and Mahalo for your review. You were ripped off… but it wasn’t us. Please read below. Unfortunately only very few facts of your review are accurate. We are happy to correct them :) 1. Blackmail Mr. Hayes called our friendly customer service ladies and demanded a refund or else he would leave a one star review to hurt our business: Well, here we are ;) Note from Management: You could have asked nicely and we probably would have made an offer, but you decided to go a different route. Blackmailing just doesn’t sit well with me. Much Aloha, Daniel (Owner). 2. Late pickup & Free Malasadas Yes, unfortunately we were running behind and did pick up late. We apologize! Matthew made a mistake this morning. Matthew gave you extra time at Pearl Harbor and bought Malasadas at Leonard’s from his own money for the whole group to make up for his mistake. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough for you. Sorry. 3. Communication with DanielsHawaii As soon as we knew the pickups would be late, our customer service called and texted everybody in the group and stayed in touch to answer questions and give an updated ETA. Yes, it doesn’t make up for the fact that we were late for pickup, but we communicated with every guest along the way. 4. Leaving the group - Guides at Pearl Harbor Guides are only allowed to give a short introduction at Pearl Harbor National Park. If you saw guides within the park they operated illegally! The guide violated Pearl Harbor regulations and the company he/she works for could get a fine and possibly lose the Pearl Harbor Permit. 5. Leaving your disabled wife behind Interesting point of view. Here is our take on that ;) She’s your wife and not Matthew’s - paying us for the Pearl Harbor Tour doesn’t change that ;) So why would you as her loving husband, leave her alone in the parking lot. However, that’s not even what happened, but it’s a fun idea to entertain. Here is what really happened: Your wife wanted to take a taxi back to Waikiki as soon as the group arrived at Pearl Harbor. Matthew had to make sure everybody makes it to the USS ARIZONA boat ride in time, therefore he walked the group into the park while your wife took a taxi. Taxis are ALWAYS waiting in the commercial parking lot - that’s the same exact parking lot where you got off the van. 6. Drop Off at Pearl Harbor All tour companies and taxis operating legally at Pearl Harbor, must drop off at the same parking lot - Google Maps shows the parking lot is ~0.1 miles from the entrance = 176 Yards (your 200 Yards guess was pretty accurate:) ) For everybody reading this, wondering about the walk from the parking lot to the park, here is the map: https://maps.app.goo.gl/AWMRFMPsqSWr81xb8?g_st=ic 7. You were ripped off! Cost for Taxi to Waikiki $73 for a taxi from Pearl Harbor to Waikiki is unheard of! We highly recommend you complain to the taxi company. A taxi / UBER ride from Pearl Harbor to your Hotel in Waikiki should not cost more than $30-$40. Sorry, but you were ripped off by the taxi drivers, twice! 8. Pearl Harbor Tour Duration Matthew gave you an extra hour at Pearl Harbor, which he didn’t get paid for. He did this so your whole group had more time to enjoy the amazing museums and exhibitions at Pearl Harbor National Park. There are 4 Museums plus the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor National Park. Some visitors stay for 8(!) hours to explore everything, so it’s a bit confusing that you weren’t able to find enough things to do for 4 hours. We also checked the GPS data and the van was parked at 245pm. Meaning the whole tour took ~7 hours, which is exactly one hour longer than usual (5-6 hours regular tour duration). We apologize for the late pick up Mr. Hayes. Matthew tried hard to make up for it. Some guests even told him he made a “nice recovery”. Since you left early you missed out on the free Malasadas and the amazing walking tour around I’olani Palace, the Capitol and the King Kamehameha Statue and Aloha Tower. You definitely should come on tour with us again to experience our 5 Star rated Pearl Harbor Tour. We are looking forward to having you on tour again. Much Aloha, Daniel (Owner)
