The best part of visiting Easter Island was spending a day with Tuhiira and Patricio in turn. They made us wish we could meet more locals, but perhaps they are exceptions. They took to their roles as ambassadors to Rapa Nui, and we were thrilled with the depth of their knowledge, love, and concern for all things related to the... More

My photographer colleague and I took a 3 day side trip to Easter Island after Patagonia and almost Antarctica (another story). We spent 2 days with Marc of Green Island Tours and had an excellent time. Marc is also a photographer and understood our interests; we had morning and late afternoon sessions. Marc gave us an excellent overview of the... More

We had an excellent 2-day tour. Because our Oceania cruise ship was in port, no private tours were available but we had only about 13 in our van -- very comfortable with plenty of time to talk with the guide for any individual questions! We not only saw all the sights, we got very interesting insight into life on Easter... More

The tour was as advertised with an amazing local guide Lotu who provided in depth information and background on the Island and its history. He knew his stuff but also from a Polynesian viewpoint. We spoke to others who had been on the cruise ship tour and we went farther, saw more and for a slightly better price. One of... More

I cannot sing enough praises for Green Island Tours. We sailed on Oceania's Marina into Easter Island (after 4 days on the Pacific Ocean seeing absolutely nothing). Since we were anchoring at Easter Island for 2 days I put a group together using Cruise Critic. Our tour guide has lived on the island for 40 years, married a Rapa Nui... More

We organised a small group tour for seven of us with Marc Shields of Green Island Tours. He was just so knowledgeable and relatable (he was a kiwi & we were from Australia). We met his delightful wife Tuhiira Tuki - who was leading another group in a mini bus, as to two groups passed. The pick up from our... More

We thought about renting a car and going on our own around the island, but I'm so glad we chose to do a tour instead. Our guide Yoyo (Jorge) was excellent. He was born and raised on the island and provided a lot of interesting insights ("The archaeologists say that this means ___, but in my family history we tell... More

I paid too much and Mark refunded it before I asked for it. Mark was knowledgeable, entertaining and helpful. Tour A covered most of the well known spots in one day. He adapted his tour to suit our needs.
