The proprietor, Mark, took a group of six of us around for a one-day highlights tour. He is super knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful; extremely tolerant of our strange questions. He also seems to personally know everyone on the island. He is a native English speaker (from New Zealand) which helps considerably. As a photographer, he was able to help us... More

Marc was an excellent tour guide working with us and adapting the tours based on our delay due to weather. He recommended excellent restaurants was well. I got to spend my birthday at Rano Raraku. I could not have been a better tour. Thanks Marc!

Before going, I emailed 3 of the top rated private tour providers on Tripadvisor and heard back from two. I ultimately chose Green Island Tours because owner Marc was the most patient and helpful in answering all our questions and helping us select the tours that best fit our interests. Payment was easy, 50% deposit via pay pal and balance... More

Green island tours and Marc were the best thing on our trip to South America. He was thorough, interesting, helpful, on time, and I cannot say enough positive. Highly recommend

I booked this tour, because of the small company, and wanted a private tour. My boyfriend and I absolutely LOVED Evelyn!! We don't think Easter Island would have been the same to us, if it weren't for her: her passion, knowledge, and love of this island, and her family. We truly want to come back when other festivities are going... More

My wife and I spent a full day with Marc in July of 2015. We found him to be extremely knowledgable, patient, and possessed of a great sense of humor. He crafted the tour to our tastes and delivered everything as promised. Well worth the pesos-- if you're looking for an excellent, English speaking guide that knows his stuff (7... More

Our guide Evelyn really made the Rapa Nuian culture come alive. She was able to provide us unique insights based on her long personal history and extensive studies and long involvement with all aspects of island life, now and historically. We got much more than facts and numbers, she made the people behind the moai and any come alive. One... More

Almost perfect guided tours. Knowledgeable guides who give you all the theories of how those huge statues were moved, and who moved them. Unrushed pace, but covered a wide range of sites. Highly recommend them.

Spending the day with Marc seeing the iconic statues of Easter Island was a once-in-a-lifetime day. He knows the island, and the islanders, well and spices up his discourse on the many Maoi we were seeing with stories of island life. My husband, a geologist, had many, many questions for Marc and we both learned a lot. And the lunch... More

We did the two day tour from our ship the Marina with Green Island Tours. What an incredible experience! The ship had to reposition due to high waves but Marc was still there to meet the tender at a different location than expected. There were only 6 of us on the tour so we had a very intimate experience. Our... More
