We did the day tour which was nice to get out of the resort and town, some very interesting information from our guide along the way. Make sure you book directly as we found out afterwards that our resort charged us an extra €20 each for making the booking which is a load of bull!

Sebastian picked us up promptly and treated us to a beautiful tour of the crater, water falls, a pristine swimming hole. His knowledge of flora was impressive. Take this tour!

This operator did a great job handling our large cruise group. Friendly guides made the day a lot of fun plus very informative. Really enjoyed the lookout that only a 4 wheel drive could reach.

I emailed Claudio (the owner) and he told me go to Papenoo village and look for the city hall on the left... More

Claude made sure our time was well spent on this full day tour. Even when I misread the ferry schedule and arrived at the meeting point late, he still picked us up. The interior of Tahiti is incredible and is a must-see. Claude is a fantastic guide, as he stops the truck to jump out and show you things. He's... More

Half day tour of the Papenoo valley in our specially adapted 4WD. A most enjoyable way to see the scenery along the river and surrounding mountains with numerous waterfalls. Driver/Guide Claudio's personality and presentation made for a good dayout

Claudio did a great job translating all of the interesting points and history in French and English. He has added a helicopter tour as an addition to his regular tour. We did not go on it, but the French family... More

Fantastic tour. The guide, Claudio, is simply amazing. He's really good at English and his knowledge of culture, history and nature is fascinating. He goes a long way to ensure that you get a tour worth your money. If you want to see the amazing nature inland of Tahiti this is the company you should use. Jannie, Jesper and Morten... More
