If you don’t take this tour you will be missing out on such a special experience in Tahiti. I was glad I chose the day after my arrival for this full-day excursion because it set the scene for everything that followed. I don’t think there are any adjectives that can properly describe what you will see on this tour, but... More

Sebastian acquired this company a couple of years ago and runs it hands-on. We had a delightful drive by him into the interior of Tahiti, specifically the Papenoo Valley and its numerous waterfalls. The road is riddled with pot holes but Sebastian navigated them conscientiously and adeptly. The restaurant near the end of the road has a wondeful view of... More

Took a tour with wife in the back of a land Rover with Sebastian. He is a great guide took his time making stops. It had been raining for a week in Tahati and we saw more than 25 waterfalls. Great Experience

Sebastian is truly the best when it comes to introducing you to the beauty of Tahiti. He picked us up on time for our private tour of 3 people from our hotel and went to length to share his knowledge about the island during the entire 5 hours. He pointed out flowers, ferns, fruits, ginger roots etc, stopped at ancient... More

During our 2 week dive itinerary on various islands, we were fortunate to have a bungalow for a few nights next to the owner of Ciao Tahiti. He was booked solid for the Christmas holiday break, but emailed us when 2 spots opened up. Lucky us. You ride in the back of a big Range Rover and start twisting up... More

We booked tour knowing we would be spending one day in Papeete before heading home. We decided on a private tour as our plane arrived too late to do a group tour. Sebastian picked us up at the airport, took us to hotel to check in and drop off our luggage. We then proceeded on an eight hour tour of... More

Our group of 8 took the 4 hour Papenoo Valley & Waterfalls tour on Sept 29. We booked in advance and communication was always prompts. Sébastien was our guide. Pick-up was prompt at pier at the Pacific Princess. Sébastien was very informative. 4x4 pickup is the perfect way to see this beautiful valley. Road was bumpy (as expected) with quite... More

Our experience could not have been more dissimilar than previous reviewers. Sebastian had excellent command of the English language, and took special care in giving equal time to both the English and French speakers in our mixed party. Email reservations were easy, and we were promptly picked up at the scheduled time. This tour was rigorous: an over eight hour... More

I always use tripadvisor to plan my trip and I have generally always been satisfied, but not so much on this tour. Before my trip, I emailed Sebastian and told him that my husband and I don’t speak any French at all. He told us not to worry about it as he would translate to English. After getting picked up,...
