Deanne_L, Apr 2023
Great personal tour with Matthew! We learned so much history about the island, the Hawaiian culture. Ate Thai food on North Shore. Having your own personal tour guide was worth it.
Oahu private tour
Douglas_d, Apr 2023
Our guide was a local and we drove to the East and North part of Oahu. I ad some requests of what we wanted to see.
Best Hawaiian experience
kathlene_j, Apr 2023
Our tour guide, Johnny, was amazing! Took us to all the local hot spots, stayed as little or as long as we wanted. Friendly, easy to chat with, helpful. So much better than being on a crowded tour bus!
Great Tour and Tour Guide
Gianna_C, Apr 2023
Josh was great. He is the best! We highly recommend this tour with him. We had a great time and were able to see most of Hawaii in 1 day
Must Do Tour of the Island!
VMaureen_R, Feb 2023
The most memorable part of this trip was the tour guide Josh, who went out of his way to make our experience just what we requested. He tailored our experience to our desires and talked nonstop for the entire experience. Even with the traffic slowdowns, he was filling us with knowledge of Hawaii continuously. The food trucks were such a hit with us!
Oahu tour
marie, Jan 2023
Very nice tour with Josh, super friendly and accomodating guide. Please note that this company does not pick up at the Cruise Port. Even though they charge extra for port pickup, you will have to walk 5-10 minutes to an adress that they give you. For us it was ok, but if you have mobility issues, beware. We had a great time! Thank you Josh!
Amazing Tour of Oahu!
Susan_Y, Dec 2022
Austin was great! Knowledgeable, accommodating, and did a wonderful job of showing us Oahu! We would highly recommend!
Zak was amazing
Alejandro_C, Aug 2022
Shout out to Zak, who unexpectedly became a babysitter to our 2 toddlers and found me a pink pineapple! He was very knowledgeable about the stops we made and even the random questions we had. He understood that we couldn’t make all the stops because of the kids but he’d just find us the next best thing. Understanding his clients and adjusting the needs really goes a long way.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Aloha Alejandro, thank you so much for such an amazing review! Zak is a really amazing guide who loves kids. All our guides are knowledgeable and know a lot about Hawaii islands. They love to share ALOHA with tourists. We hope you come to see us again! ALOHA, DanielsHawaii.com

Tailor-made tour
Viola_A, Jun 2022
This was a personalized tour. Our tour guide Joshua went out of the way to make sure we had new experiences and that they were ones of our choosing. We fully enjoyed our day.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Aloha Viola! Mahalo nui loa for this 5-star review! We are so happy you enjoyed your tour of the island with Josh. All of our amiable guides love to share ALOHA and on our private tours our professional guides create a completely customized experience. Thank you for being our guests and ALOHA from DanielsHawaii.com!
Great tour but,…
Deborah_H, Apr 2022
We saw many wonderful sites! It is a great way to see the sites without trying to find them on your own. Not the tour’s fault, unexpected traffic impacted the time at sites. We did not get a stop at Pearl Harbor as listed in the itinerary. Our guide was a little heavy on comments about the impact of millionaires buying homes and the injustice done to native Hawaiians.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Aloha Deborah and Mahalo for your review. We are happy you had a great time and learned about our beautiful island. Part of our tour is Hawaiian history, which unfortunately shows there was done a lot of injustice to the Hawaiians. We can’t change that. However, since all tours are scripted, we know the Hawaiian history part of the tour usually takes only about 20-30 minutes out of the 6-7 hour tour. Of course we answer questions. If they come up We are sorry this was already too much for you. Now imagine you were Hawaiian and you had to live with this injustice for the past and the next generations. DanielsHawaii is proud to have local guides, even Hawaiians that work for us as guides. We are honored they tell their story and despite everything share their ALOHA. Hawaiian history is part of our tours. We believe Hawaii is more than just beaches, surf spots and local food, but of course we are happy to show you all this. Our Island Tours will show you the REAL Hawaii. We are happy to share it with all our guests. MUCH ALOHA, DanielsHawaii
See Oahu from a local perspective
Babak_R, Jan 2022
Our guide Kapua made all the difference for the experience we had!!! He is the best!!! We had the best Oahu local experience with sites , beaches and food!!!
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Mahalo for this fantastic review! All of our friendly guides are knowledgeable and passionate about the island. We are delighted you had an amazing experience exploring the island, trying the food, and seeing the sights. It is big wave season, between November and February, this is when most surf competitions are held, and massive waves can sometimes swell up to thirty feet or more! Winters are a beautiful time to see the island and we hope to see you again! ALOHA, DanielsHawaii.com
Oahu with a fabulous guide!
Jolene_O, Dec 2021
The sights: Diamond Head, the blowhole/eternity beach, waterfalls, the wild waves of North Shore were all fantastic. The food: Malasadas, food trucks, farmers markets were great! Tour guide: Sierra was fabulous. Knowledgeable with great insight into island life and culture from a native’s perspective. And a great driver!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Mahalo for your stellar review! We showcase the best of Oahu on our tours, the stories, sights, and snacks! It’s great to hear you had a real kamaaina experience on your tour with Sierra. Mahalo for spending the day with us! ALOHA from DanielsHawaii.com
Best vacation ever!
Kathy_T, Nov 2021
Cameron was our tour guide, and he made this day a definite highlight of our trip. We learned so much about the island, and were able to see sights that we never would have found on our own. Thank you Cameron for making our 40th wedding anniversary trip amazing.
