Don't miss this tour of Easter Island. We arrive by cruise ship for two day tour with green island tours but were only able to make it ashore for one day due to weather conditions. Surprisingly half of our money was refunded for the second day of the tour. The tour guide spoke English very well and the services they... More

Marc was well organised and working with him was simple. Our 2 days tour was cut short, but we enjoyed the single day immensely. We had a wonderful time with Nikolas, our guide and driver. Niko is probably one of the more popular guides on the island, and most ladies would agree.

Easter Island is all you've read and dreamed and desired. The landscape is stunning, eerie and mystical. See it with Green Island Tours. Communication & booking with Marc Shields was excellent. He answered all my questions immediately. We took the smaller tour of 16 and saw 75% of the island in one day. Our guide was a direct descendent of... More

My wife and I and three other travellers booked the two day shore excursion after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed in what we did. I will note that we were on a cruise ship that was tendered into the island and were lucky to be able to get onshore as there are very limited dockings... More

Marc, was more than just a tour guide, he was flexible, funny, interactive and engaging. He made the experience one of the most memorable I have ever had. Marc didn't dictate from a book and took the time to answer any question and have a lot of fun while showing us around. Well worth price and we never felt like... More

Putting it simply, owner Marc's a rock star from start to finish. Coordinating tours via email with him was easy – he worked with me on some extenuating circumstances, and cheerfully answered many questions about things unrelated to tours (as he did once on Island). Our first meeting was at the airport-- he showed up there to discuss a possible... More

We went to Easter Island the week before Thanksgiving 2015. My husband booked on Green Island Tours very early, synchronizing 3 tours with Mark. We did the Bird Man Cult Tour, and twice the Moai Monument tour, with one of the two including a sunrise. All 3 tours were well organized; the guides knew both the area and history extremely...

I had wanted to come to Easter Island for years. When I did finally make it I did my research and found Marc and had read the reviews. He far exceeded my expectations and I even signed up for a second day which was with his wife. I cannot say enough about the trip and how great his knowledge is.... More

My friend Evan and I toured Rapa Nui for two days with Marc. It was incredible. Marc, a fluent English speaker, not only knew the history and archaeology of the island inside and out but he knew how to make the information and experiences incredibly fun too. He showed us a ton of great fun photo opportunities that when we... More

Recently did two full-day tours with Green Island, covering most of the major highlights on Rapa Nui. These private tours aren't cheap but they are worth every penny. Having a dedicated and knowledgeable guide was an amazing way to learn more about the island. Both were natives/long-time residents (with great English) that were enthusiastic about sharing their understanding of the... More
