My husband & I had an exceptional private tour with Lucas yesterday! He was knowledgeable about the Hawaiian culture, history and fun random facts! He was flexible and even added a charming place to shop away from all the standard tourist key chains etc! We highly recommend requesting Lucas….there is no way you could be dissatisfied! Aloha!!

I wished I had more stars to give but this is the highest I could rate. This was our first trip to Hawaii and we could not have picked a better guide than Nazia. She was the best!!! Her personality instantly made her feel like family! This was not at all what we expected , it was so much more! Our travel agent had choose Daniel Hawaii tours for our first time experience . This is one trip we will never forget and if you want your own personal tour guide you can’t go wrong with this one . I would definitely ask for Nazia as a guide! I promise you will not be disappointed.

We took Pearl Harbor tour using Daniel Hawaii service. Our guide was Christine. She’s knowledgable, responsive and attentive. We enjoyed a little tour around Honolulu downtown with her. When she dropped us at Pearl Harbor museum, her instructions were clear and to the point. She’s a great guide!

Jennifer was great. Very pleasant and professional. She knew so much interesting information about Hawaii and didn't mind our questions about Germany.

Also angefangen mit der Buchung und der sehr schnellen Bestätigung per SMS und Email, wurden wir eine Stunde vor Abfahrt nochmal über die bestätigte Abholung telefonisch unterrichtet. Toller Service. Zur Tour: Unser Guide war Nazia und die Tour war auf deutsch was vieles einfacher macht. Sie hat uns einen super schönen Tag bereitet,der leider viel zu schnell vorüber ging. Nazia ging auf alle Teilnehmer persönlich ein, sodass wir auch eine ganz tolle Stimmung unter den Teilnehmern hatten. Nazia war super sympathisch und hat mit unheimlich vielen tollen Hintergrund Infos die Insel den Gästen nahe gebracht. Selbst bei Problemen bei der Bestellung von Essen war sie sofort zur Stelle und regelte sie alles perfekt. Danke nochmal an Nazia für deine tolle Performance. P.s. Nach den tolle Erfahrungen mit Danielshawaii.de , haben wir dort direkt die nächste Tour gebucht.

Our experience on our tour in Oahu, Hawaii was outstanding and a core memory for our family, especially with our tour guide Heather. She was so sweet, amazing, and a positive person and made our experience fun. Heather also knew many facts and details around Hawaii. She taught us new things and skills in nature. For example, she stopped by the beautiful Nuʻuanu Pali Lookout, showed us how to crack nuts open with natural resources and showed the different plants and species. Also, Heather was so kind and took the time out of her day to let our family see turtles on the beach just to see our kids’ smiles on their faces. I would definitely recommend Heather from Daniel’s Hawaii tour company because she is an amazing tour guide. Lastly, I would like to thank Heather for the amazing time and sharing the true experience of Oahu with my family.

Uns hat die Tour „Oahu Beste Orte Inselrundfahrt (deutsch)“ sehr gut gefallen. Unsere Reiseführerin Nazia war super und hat uns viele interessante Informationen und Tipps gegeben. Wir hatten überall genug Zeit, um uns umzusehen und Fotos zu machen. Während der Mittagspause haben wir die (wahrscheinlich) leckersten Schrimps der Welt gegessen. Die Tour mit Nazia ist sehr zu empfehlen.
