Went to Peleliu to see if we could find where my uncle was killed during the battle for Peleliu during WWII. Des was able to take us to the approximate spot of where he was killed. Most people spend a day on Peleliu... we spent 10 days!! Des kept us busy. We toured the island on bikes. Trekked into the jungle and swam to the reef. If you are a WWII buff or just want to get away from the rest of the world try Peleliu Adventures.

We did a day tour of Peleliu with Peleliu Adventures and it was great! The guide was knowledgable and the sites were well-chosen. The island has so much history, our only regret is that we didn’t stay longer!

Des was also able to accomodate us and add a snorkelling stop along the way which was perfect for us. Definitely recommended!

We spent an amazing day on Peleliu with Des of Peleliu Adventures. Des is a wonderful host and tour guide, he was great with our children (ages 8-14) and completely catered our day to our wishes. He is so knowledgable and helpful as a guide. If given the option, definitely choose the local lunch, so delicious! We cannot recommend this tour enough!

I visited Palau for 12 days and stayed in Koror, but through “Peleliu Adventures” and Des, I visited Peleliu for 3 days and 2 nights. He had a boat meet me in Koror and we docked in Peleliu about an hour later. All three days were an amazingly fun, entertaining, and educational trip in which I could not have done on my own. I would definitely recommend “Peleliu Adventures” to anyone who's planning a Palauan trip and would suggest at least a few days down in Peleliu to get the full experience. Des and his wife are truly knowledgeable and kind, provided a room as well as meals really made the adventure experience simplified. As I was filming a documentary about my cousin's WWII service there, Des even rescued my errant drone that “got away from me” on the Airstrip! So he definitely went above-and-beyond as a tour guide, host, and now new friend… I look forward to going back soon!

I was in Palau for just under a week visiting family. Part of our visit included this must do tour with Des Matsutaro. Not only is he knowledgeable about the island and its culture, he's well versed on all parts of the history of the island, its occupation, the Battle of Peleliu, and how the island has changed post war. We spent the day driving and hiking through the jungle visiting the numerous relics, caves, buildings, and other scars left by WWII.

Spending a day with Des and his team is a must do while in Palau!
