Daniel D.

Honolulu, Hawaii (HI), United States

Aloha! It is my nature and my love of Hawaii that have brought me here to ToursByLocals.

After leading thousands of visitors to Oahu on circle island tours, snorkeling excursions, and food tours, I am able to share the rich culture of Hawaii in so many ways.

Originally from the east coast, I was drawn to Hawaii in 2004 by its powerful surf, the awesome beauty, and a fascinating community. Oh, and the food is pretty great too! It is the people of Hawaii and the mixing of the cultures that make Oahu such a unique place. Well, that and the face melting beauty of it all! I have immersed myself in the community, have been treated with Aloha, and I treat others with that same spirit of hospitality. I have worked as a chef, an archaeologist, and in the surfboard industry before growing into a tour guide. My passions include surfing, hiking, sailing, travel, art, and culture. Oh yeah, and food!

All of my tours are 100% flexible and totally customizable. Want to go sky diving while on tour? Maybe horseback riding? Maybe both on the same day? No problem. Tours like these would require some advance notice. I will be happy to make recommendations and reservations, and to organize an amazing tour for you! Would you rather have a relaxed day, plan very little, and have the option to stop whenever and wherever you like? No problem. I got you!

I hope to enrich your experience in Hawaii, to provide a unique perspective of the islands, and to create memories that will last a lifetime.

A Recent Review of this guide

Pre-vacation communications were efficient & detailed.Once we arrived on Oahu we finalized our custom tour.Group of 8 (3 generations) which presented small challenges Daniel handled with patience & grace.Our time was devoted to visiting spots that locals frequent.We had personal requests which he included & then added in some of his recommended spots.The mini-bus was comfortable & easy to get in & out of. We learned so much about what it's like to live on Oahu. Highly recommend a private tour w/Daniel.
