Our guide Chloe was great. The other two that had reserved the tour did not show up so we had a personal excursion. Chloe was an exceptional guide and was fun and informative. She took a video of us riding the segways which we definitely enjoyed. We would recommend this excursion to anyone.

We were met by Chloe and given some instruction on balance and turning, stopping and going for3ward. Just two couples in the group and we headed across the main road up into the market, past the local Parliament and a beautiful park with ponds and gardens. Chloe was very informative and in front of the church we were informed it had actually survived an earthquake when everything else had been destroyed. Hmm makes you wonder! At the end of the tour Chloe bumped up the speed of our Segway's and let us have some fun on the lagoon esplanade, great fun. We had a ball and didn't want to surrender our trusty steeds. My husband still wants to buy one now we are home! Great fun.

My wife and I have never been disappointed using Viator. We booked a 21 day cruise to Hawaii and then sail to Tahiti and surrounding islands. While on Tahiti, our cruise ship did not have any shore excursions. We looked at Viator web site and found a 2.5 hour Segway tour of Papeete, Tahiti. We loved it! The local contact Viator used was Maevaride and the tour guide's name was Chole. She was a wonderful host and ensured we were comfortable operating the Segway prior to the tour. She provided water and a helmet and on the slow speed of the Segway we zipped around the city. Once we were more confident of operation the Segway Chole asked if we wanted to go a bit faster. We said yes and the programed the Segways to go a bit faster - but we still had complete control of the speed. Chole answered all our Papeete questions. Some questions stumped her and she got on here cell phone after we stopped and found out the answer using Google or other means. Overall the tour was a huge success. My wife and I highly recommend it and we are 67 years old.
We are attaching a group photo of us with Chole at a site in Papeete.

Awesome way to see the city. Guide was fantastic. Really new his history and local stories. Showed us some very pretty government buildings along the boulevard plus especially loved riding along the harbour side and waters edge. Even got to see the markets and buy some pearls.

Very fun time on the Segway! After a training lesso, we were off to see the local attractions in Tahiti. We rode around town, saw the church, the presidential palace, the market, Bougainville Park. Segways are new to the area, so many of the locals were amazed to see something like this and many were inquiring about them. At the end we were able to ride them at a higher speed around the square. This part was great! Helmets and water were included. Very nice tour guide. Bring sunscreen!!

Easy to find. Prompt to start. Safety first. One-on-one instruction. A little practice. And then we were off for two hours of fun, sights, photo-stops, with just the right balance of information about each location, monument, tree, activity etc. This was, for us, a brilliant way to do a fast, value-for-money tour in the sunshine, with an English speaking, enthusiastic guide. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend to others.
