Joseph collected us at our hotel and was happy and knowledgeable for the whole tour. We scaled extraordinary heights in the back of a jeep but the view at the top was worth it.

We actually did the tour twice in one week, because we enjoyed it so much the first time! Our tour guide, Hiro, was so friendly and informative that we requested the second tour with him as well.

We had an amazing time with Etienne!! He not only gave us a great history lesson but he was able to add humor and make it even more interesting! He taught us about the various fruit and flowers as well as the sports and how to open a coconut!! :) I would definitely come visit him again!

Hiro was our guide for our 3 hour tour around the beautiful island of bora bora. Hiro explained about the history of the island and never rushed us when taking pictures, etc. Great way to see the island and learn about the Tahitian culture. Highly recommend this tour!

Our drive was amazing, at the top of the mountain; he started singing and made the experience jump to a whole new level. Definitely recommended for everyone, it's perfect for anyone who wants to have a personal tour of the island.

This was such an amazing experience!More than just a safari ride. It was a history lesson and we were able to experience and develop a better understanding of the culture. This all was thanks to our friendly and knowledgeable guide Hiro. What a hero! He was so funny and such an amazing and safe driver too!Thanks Hiron :)

The driver/guide was very professional, very friendly, very knowledgeable, always thinking to offer to take a picture of us with the surroundings. We even received free coconuts in one place and free fruits in another place, he dropped by a street seller and got everything for us for free!
