Our guide Dana was great. Great information and a through knowledge. He was patient and funny and we had a very relaxed tour. All in all great idea if you want to get to know Moorea.

Our lovely guide met us at the dock and took us on a wonderful tour of beautiful Moorea. We were on a small tour bus that was able to get to parts of the island that the larger coaches were not able to go. Highly recommend.

Very nice ride around the island. We seen the Belvedere- the middle point of Moorea with view of both bays. Also went to the botanical garden with some emazing fruits and vegetables. And the guide was very nice and interesting to talk to

This tour was a very nice overview of Moorea. The sites were beautiful. We had many stops for taking in views and taking photos. We had a small group and enjoyed interacting with the other people on the tour. Our tour guide was very friendly and helpful and knew his script, but his English was limited so it was difficult for him to answer questions. Overall a nice morning seeing Moorea, which is very beautiful.

This was a great tour. Bus was nice and air conditioned. The driver was great. Frankly there isn't all that much to see in Moorea. You probably don't need to go around the whole island! Belvedere lookout was amazing. If you want to do an ATV tour that may be more exciting - definitely do one or the other, not both! We chose this tour bc we thought a half day tour would be good - it didn't end until 3p though!

The first part of the tour was good. All of the stops are generally in the same area. We then drove around the island without stopping which i thought was a bit silly. Yes is a 'circle island tour' but its not really worth driving around the island without stopping.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this December 2014

We was very disappointed with your company. I booked this tour at sea which I paid lots for internet. Viator didn't answer my e-mails. I will never use your company nor recommend to my friends.
