Great Tour
Sep. 2021 • Couples
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Johnny, great way to see Oahu and learn about it. He was very knowledgeable about the island, and had great recommendations for places go visit during the rest of our trip. Lunch was a stop at Fumi's, where you can get some very fresh shrimp (or chicken if you don't want shrimp).

It was a complete Island Tour
Jun. 2021
The guide picked us at around 9 in the morning and gave us tour of the complete island. We booked the Private Tour and all the places are shown from the car without getting down. He stopped at a couple of beaches and then at Macadamia farms. The guide took us to food trucks for lunch and there were many options (especially Thai food was amazing). The guide communicated well and gave much of the information regarding the place. Viewing the Turtles was thrilling. The guide dropped us back at 3:30pm.

Too expensive for the type of experience!
Zach, the tour leader, was friendly, helpful and on time! The price is too high for the experience. The tour description states lunch is included but that only means lunch time is included! So the tour leader was great but trip ad visor price is set too high!

Aloha and Mahalo for your review. We are glad you had a great time. We hope to see you again on your next trip to Oahu. We would be happy to show you the beautiful island and maybe some of the hidden gems you haven’t seen yet. Our luxury vehicles and knowledgeable guides are always ready to go for you. Much Aloha DanielsHawaii.com PS: the description of the tour says “lunch at own expense”. But who reads nowadays, right? ;) We are sad that this was the reason for a four instead of a five star review. Much Aloha :)

Full island tour! Money / time well spent!
Glad we decided to take this tour toward the beginning of our trip. Our guide, "Kentucky" did a great job showing us places of interest around the entire island. He made stops for pictures, shopping, snorkeling and eating. He also shared about the history, culture, and interesting and entertaining facts about Hawaii and the island. We rented a car and went back the next day to spend more time in the North Shore. It was a FULL day trip. Well worth the time and money spent.

Not as advertised
We were told this was a semi-private tour with Daniel and max of 6 people, starting at 9am. Instead it was a bus tour of 22 people with a guide who talked non-stop. We were dropped off at a beach for an hour, although the website said no swimming or snorkeling. This, we were not prepared with bathing suits. We stopped at a macadamia nut store and a shrimp place with all the other tour buses. We saw the island, which was nice, but never again will I do on a Daniel’s Hawaii tour. Side note- my husband called Daniel. He was livid. Daniel gave us a partial refund. I can’t get the day back. Who would have thought there could be a bad tour of Oahu?!?!

Aloha and Mahalo for taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry you are not happy with the tour. 1. Van / Group Size As described on Viator / TripAdvisor, our semi-private small group tour can have more than 6 guests. Due to Covid-19 restrictions worldwide, Hawaii is the only tropical destination for people from the continental US. It is very busy. To make sure we can accommodate everybody and don't have to cancel, we have to adjust the vehicle sometimes. 2. Tour Guide talked non-stop One of the main jobs of a tour guide is to explain the area. That's why our guides give as much information as possible about Hawaii on the tour. Maybe an UBER or taxi would have been the better fit for you if you rather have a driver than a guide. 3. Turtle Beach North Shore The beach you visited and stayed for about 30-40 minutes was Turtle Beach on the North Shore. Usually people love to stay there and watch the turtles. We are sorry that it wasn't for you. 4. FREE Coffee & Macadamia Nut Tasting The Macadamia Nut Farm is a well liked stop on our tour - not only because of the clean bathrooms, but also because of the FREE Macadamia Nut and Macadamia Nut Coffee Samples. 5. Lunch Stop Shrimp Trucks The Shrimp Trucks on the North Shore are famous and we are happy to have about 30-45 minute lunch break there. You can try the famous North Shore Shrimp, have a vegetarian plate or a non-seafood plate. 6. Livid Tour Company Owner About your side note: Your husband was the one yelling at me. Once he took a breath, I asked him what he suggests I should do to make him happy. He wasn't able to answer the question. The only thing he said was "I don't want to be an a-hole that's why I don't want my money back, but I will leave a bad review". Mission accomplished :) Even though I knew your family would leave a bad review, I gave a partial refund. Why? I felt bad for him. I felt bad because he let a simple thing such as being on the bus with more than 6 people "ruin" his day. Much Love and ALOHA, Daniel (Owner DanielsHawaii.com)

Outstanding Overview of Oahu!
Full day traveling in a new comfortable Mercedes van with six people total. Our guide Cameron was the best tour guide I’ve ever met; his knowledge and enthusiasm for the island of Oahu and the Hawaiian culture is first rate. The tour moved at a steady pace, but was not too taxing for the older members of the group. Cameron shared information on all the sites, plants, vistas, towns, and beaches we passed by or stopped to visit. My favorite part was seeing the turtles and listening to all the stories Cameron shared. He was also great about helping me and my friend in and out of the van; such gentlemanly customer service! I would recommend this tour early in your island visit and then revisit places where you might want to linger for a longer period. Overall, great day and I attribute a lot of the success to our guide Cameron!

Ideal introduction to the island!
Jun. 2021
Favorite parts of the experience:

Our guide Cameron!

Between Kualoa Ranch and the The North Shore - the view looking inland towards a valley with archeological evidence of a sizable Old Hawaiian population. This vista was breathtaking, which is saying a lot in a place like Hawaii!

Cameron is a fantastic guide. His enthusiasm for his home island is infectious. You will leave with a deep appreciation of the varied terrain, history and culture of O'ahu. And with great stories, fun facts and helpful hints.

The tour was the perfect overview for our multi-generational family of four - 2 parents, 1 grandma and 1 teenage boy. Since our tour two days ago, we've followed up on several tips from Cameron, making our time in the greater Honolulu area that much more memorable.

Book this tour and ask for Cameron, you will feel like you are hanging out with your best friend who can't wait to tell you and show all kinds of great stuff - you won't regret it.

Quick note - this is a circle tour - an overview and introduction to the many, many sites that make the island unique. It is an excellent overview pointing you in the right for deeper exploration. Thanks again Cameron!

Tourin with Johnny
May 2021 • Couples
Great experience!! We give our tour guide Johnny, high marks for making our experience informative, very comfortable, and laid back. He took us to many spots for great photos and a story about each location. His knowledge of Oahu and the interesting things about each town/village were helpful if you wanted to go back you would know good places to eat or visit in more detail. Macadamia nut farm was a nice stop with good coffee and nuts. Shipped home a box full. Johnny took us to Giavanni’s food truck for lunch. It
was probably in the top 3 best meals we had so far in the 5 days we have been here. Shrimp Scampi was delicious. Other offerings available if shrimp isn’t your thing. Turtle beach stop was a bonus with turtles on the beach. We toured the war Memorial with Johnny 2 days ago and during our trip he made some dining recommendations and the one we chose did not disappoint.
Daniel personally communicated and followed up after the tour. Very much appreciated and it illustrated to us that they care about those little details that make for a pleasurable experience. Thanks guys.
