Our tour with Daniels Hawaii and driver Johnny exceeded our expectations. Our driver was funny, informative and attentive. We are having the perfect honeymoon.

Impressive day. Everything was well arranged with a nice guide along the way. You could walk around there on your own without a guide

Johnny was very knowledgable and gave useful information. We took his advice on a great eating place—we were not disappointed!

The tour was good and the guide was excellent. Glad we got to see Pearl Harbor and the other sites as well.

A great experience. Could never have asked for a better guide and service.
