Fun shore excursion from our cruise ship, but sidewalks were crowded
Oct. 2019
We were on Golden Princess in October 2019 and booked this Viator. We didn't have any issues with the booking, but it was difficult to find the meeting place. Fortunately, we had plenty of time to find the location (and I was able to glimpse someone above the crowd of heads that just looked like they were moving around differently than others). There were 5 of us on the tour in total, which is all the Segways available for guest that they have (owner was on another Segway taking some pictures, guide was on another Segway). Guide's English was good, Owner didn't seem to speak much English. The Guide said that he was the sone of the head judge in Papeete. The streets were VERY crowded with all the people. At one point, there was a minor clipping of a Segway with someone. But the Segways were pretty easy to control once your brain adjusted to the experience (which happened within just a couple of minutes for me and the others). The open practice area was appreciated. My wife did wish that we had gone along the water in a more open area, but I was OK with the path we took (although was worried at times about the crowds).

We visited the legislature building and had looked around the grounds, when we were just about to get going again when someone came up to us and asked if we had looked inside. Later, the guide and owner had said they had never been inside. We weren't sure as a group we should (worried about missing out on part of the tour), but decided as a group we would go in.....and we were all glad we did. They showed us a couple of rooms, and even let us sit in the chairs where the head folks sit. Really pretty cool.

The rest of the excursion was also nice.

Sorry for the clutter of sidewalks in Papeete. At this moment, the city of Papeete is under construction and until the first quarter of 2020. We hope we have done our best.

Really sorry for this unpleasantness. The booking site Viator / Tripadvisor has bugged because for the same day and the same time we had about ten reservations while our maximum capacity is 6 people because we have 6 Segway. We reported this bug to the Tripadvisor teams. We apologize again for this problem beyond our control.

Viator booking - five months then cancelled out of nowhere
Sep. 2019
Booked and paid in full on 9 May 2019. Was looking forward to our group of five + another two from another booking having a wonderful time. Instead both bookings have been cancelled with no explanation. Just stating that they are full and offering 2pm timeslot or refund. I'm sorry but wouldn't you know you were full in May at the time of the booking? And why is it that I can STILL BOOK the 9am timeslot on our chosen day? You only got one star because there isn't an option to give you none!

Highly Recommended
For an exhilarating city tour around the city of Papeete, choose a Segway tour with Maite, Laurent, or Laura of MaevaRide Papeete. After a little training and about 10 minutes of practice, riders are ready to travel. In two hours, we saw many highlights of the city and then traversed the waterfront boardwalk. So much fun! We highly recommend MaevaRide Papeete.

disappointment
Jan. 2019 • Couples
The instructions on how to reach the start point for the tour was very sketchy and we almost missed contact. As a last resort we went in to a tourist office and found the representative just sitting around waiting for us to find her.

The tour guides were two very pleasant young people but spoke very limited english. The tour through the park was done by simply pointing out the signs in english. We were the only two people on the tour and a large tour group would probably have more experienced guides.

The segway tour was made through downtown Papeete on streets and sidewalks with risks to us from the cars and risks to the pedestrians.

Great Afternoon Tour
We recently visited Papeete on a cruise ship and pre booked this tour. We were not disappointed, it was a great way to see the sights. Our guide Sophie was great, she shared lots of history and pointed out things we might have just not noticed. Highly recommend this tour.

A great way to tour the waterfront on a segway. The park is beautiful and our host really knew her history of Papeete and Tahiti. We toured a local church which was beautiful and went to a woman's festival behind the parliament. Saw the presidents house and some local wall art. Very cool tour
