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

We booked a 2.5 day tour with Marc at Green Island Tours and it was fantastic. Seeing the island with just your own guide is by far the best way to do it as you have more flexibility, time at each location and crucially can avoid being alongside the bigger buses and tour groups who can ruin the ambience of...

I had a very short time on the island and booked two tours with Marc and Sebastian. I had an amazing time and left feeling like I accomplished everything I wanted and so much more. They left no question unanswered and showed aspects of the island that no amount of research could replace. I highly recommend booking a tour and... More

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
