Take the Albert's tour and ask for Tom for your tour guide. He speaks clear and excellent English. He's been driving this tour for 25 years. He actually backed up the last 25 feet up the mountain in reverse and then shared with us that was his 1st time doing that! Great sense of humor!! Breathtaking view from up there.... More

You can only get to this lookout with a tour or if you have a 4x4 or off-road vehicle, but it is the best view on Moorea. I think even better than Belvedere.

This is just a lookout point. That's all. Yes, you can see the ocean and reef. To me, it was NOT worth the effort at all. The drive up was VERY steep and DANGEROUS. Going down was worse (rely on unknown driver, and unknown brakes). I did NOT enjoy the trip at all. The lookout was average. There's a 100... More

This was the last stop on our ride with ATV Moorea and guide William. This was the scariest climb for me but William just said to us all not to worry because it was much easier going down. He was right but the best part was the view at the top. It is a great ending to a day on... More

We did a guided tour that included pickup from the InterContinental, Belvedere and Magic Mountain lookouts, a visit to an archeological site, and a visit to a Vanilla plantation, and felt the price was reasonable for the convenience and the memorable experience.

My wife and I did the ATV excursion to the top of the peak. The ride was thrilling and the views were breathtaking. If you go to Moorea, you need to do this, it is so worth it!

My husband and I were staying in Moorea for our honeymoon and we learned about Damon through Hero Tours at the airport. The day we had originally scheduled the tour ended being quite stormy and damp so Damon gave us the courtesy call and asked us if we would like to reschedule and we did. It was nice of him... More

We stopped at Magic Mountain on our ATV tour and loved the views. The ride up and down was fun; however, the views were breathtaking.

From the waters edge we climbed up and up in the open 4x4 driven by Eloy to Magic Mountain for sublime views across Moorea and her reef. The ride was heart-stopping - but well worth it - a great panorama awaits!

This was the last stop of our Albert's ATV Tour with tour guide Moana. Such an amazing view in all directions! From here you see Opunohu Bay and can really see the contrasting blues inside and outside of the reef. Highly recommend!
