First, let me say my wife and I come from the U.S and we have been on many tours throughout the world. Prior to going on this tour, I read Tripadvisor reviews and emailed someone from Ciao Tahiti. 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

Great half day tour with Claudio! My husband and I were on the tour with others that spoke only French. 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

We spent a wonderful half day touring along the coast before heading inland along the Papenoo River. Claudio is well versed in the history of the area and provided amazing details about the flora, fauna and rock formations along the 18 km route. The waterfalls are impressive and Claudio did an excellent job of explaining the ancient sacred archaeological site.... More

My wife and I booked a full day with Claudio, and had an amazing day exploring the valley. The trip started strong with Claudio taking us to a local festival and helping us by translating with the locals so we could do shopping and get pictures with Tahitian women in their traditional attire. From there it was a great day... More

We visited the interior valley of Tahiti with Claudio my very first day we arrived in Tahiti. We are a couple in honey moon. The tour was excellent despite the rain (which kept the ari fresh nevertheless) and the jet lag. The tour is drive-by through the main valley in the interior of the islands up to a lake, which...

We prebooked a 4x4 tour with Claudio for May 6th based on the glowing ( and we feel misplaced ) reviews on Trip Advisor . We were arriving on a Cruise ship and he assured us by email that he would be waiting for us on the dock. After waiting around for almost an hour we gave up in disgust.... More
