Aloha Amy, mahalo for this 5-star review! On our small group island tours, we show all the best local sights and stops around this amazing island in a smaller, more intimate group. Hawaii has a long history of shrimp farming. We are delighted you had a great lunch at one of the delicious shrimp truck options on the North Shore and enjoyed talking story with one of our friendly knowledgeable guides! Mahalo for being our guests! ALOHA, DaneilsHawaii.com

We enjoyed our day with Johnny. It was nice to have a smaller tour experience and made our experience so much more fun than a larger group tour. It was flexible and easy and we enjoyed all the random knowledge and facts that our tour guide told us about. Everyone had a great day and it was definitely the way to see the island efficiently and enjoyably.

In the Hawaiian language, there's a saying, “When the sky weeps, the Earth lives,” or Uwe ka lani, ola ka honua. Rain is viewed as a blessing from the ancestors. We are delighted you had an amazing birthday expedition with Johnny. Our friendly guides try to make every trip a memorable one. Aloha and Mahalo from DanielsHawaii.com

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).

Mahalo for taking the time to review your trip with DanielsHawaii.com! Our knowledgeable guides show the island's beautiful sights in a friendly smaller group environment that allows more time to interact and sightsee. We are delighted you enjoyed lunch at one of our tasty shrimp truck options on the North Shore! Hawaii has a long history in shrimp farming. Precontact, Hawaiians harvested local shrimp from coastal fishponds for hundreds of years and most of the world’s farmed shrimp can trace their genes back to Hawaii! Our guides tell the stories behind the sights and are happy to share recommendations of fun things to eat, see, and experience for the rest of your visit to the island. We are thrilled you had a 5-star experience with Johnny! ALOHA, DanielsHawaii.com

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.

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 :)

We learnt a lot about the Hawaii indigenous people culture and their struggles from Mr K. He was knowledgeable and entertaining. This was a great first day tour to get an overview of the island.

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.

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)
