We knew the ride would be bumpy in parts, but we saw something of the interior in 4 to 5 hours. Eric had a genuine interest in the flora and fauna, so his commentary along the way helped make the visit pleasurable. Thanks again Eric,

We were passengers with just 2 other couples. Our guide showed us the interior of the island of Tahiti, going very high up into the mountains. The views were breathtaking! We had lunch at a hotel, the food was good but expensive. (Like everything in French Polynesia) They had a very friendly little kitten that liked to be petted too!... More

Recent rainfall made for lots of beautiful waterfalls; but it also created lots of ruts in the dirt roads to the top of the island for a beautiful lookout. Along the return route, we stopped at a small natural pool, complete with cascading waterfall, to enjoy a brief swim. Wear your swimsuit, water shoes and take a towel. The ride... More

My mom and I took a half day tour with our guide "Hiro" when my mom had an accident. She fell down rocky hillside and had her arm broken. Hiro drove us to the hospital as quickly as he could. But not only our guide but also the owner of the Tahiti Safari Expectation, Patrice came to the hospital to... More

Did a half day trip with Tahiti Safari to kill some time before our flight. Our guide was nice, but could've offered more information, and a good portion of the half day was spent in the back of the truck going to and from the destinations. Maybe the full day trip is better that way. To add to this, you... More

We took the half day tour into the bush and the interior of the island of Tahiti. Our guide "Eric" was great. He was knowledgeable about the scenery and the volcano valley and he was very willing to offer insights into what it was like living in Tahiti and their culture. The ride was a little bumpy but well worth... More

Our tour guide Terry was amazing. Very knowledgeable on his history and a very fun and quirky man. English was fluant, which was a massive help for us as we don't speak French or Tahitian. This tour has provided us with a better appreciation for the island, and learnt a lot about Polynesian history. Well worth the cost.

We took this trip while on a lay over in Papeete. We were a little disappointed that they put 8 people in the "Safari truck" of which 4 people sit inside the truck instead of in the outside bed of the truck as pictured. The driver was very thorough and talked through the entire ride though was a little hard... More

My father-in-law and I did the tour as an excursion from the Celebrity Millenium cruise ship. We were not disappointed. The drive and scenery were beautiful. The opportunity to swim in the crystal clear waters of the river in the heart of Tahiti was spectacular and refreshing. Excellent time!
