If your Safari is not in private mode and synced with iCloud. You could view the internet history from any iOS device. Google Chrome also syncs the Internet history.

Let me clarify a bit: I need to remote into one of the users on my network without them knowing that I have done so and take a look at their internet history.
The history files for each browser are easily accessible.  You can use sqlite3 to access the history files.  You'll need to copy the files if they currently have their browser open, because the browser locks the database while it's in use.

Are your users of macbook pro at the same location with yours?

You need to have remote access to the users' Mac computers and you can do that without them knowing by installing remote desktop app in their computer when they are not with their macbook pro.
