“Definitely a must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

My wife and I took this on our 2nd day in the morning. They picked us up from the hilton, loaded up and set out.

Our tour guide was fantastic! He took us all over the back areas of the island. Even looked like some areas that are a little more harder to get to with a jeep tour. When we did see jeep tours the people in the jeep looked like they were not having fun sitting in the back waiting for their destination while we actually to view everything.

To make our adventure that more memorable he brought a camera and would go ahead of us, taking pictures of us crossing the a small stream, or doing group shots of us in a popular location. Which was perfect since we didn't have to worry about asking strangers to take ours or try to take selfies. He was very knowledgeable of the island and the geography, history, and culture, like i said couldn't ask for a better tour guide.

My only complaint would be that certain areas he is driving and not stopping to explain that it was hard to hear him if you were not in the first 2 atvs near him. I wish he had a helmet headsets to he can talk and we can hear him.

The vehicles are ATV's and some of the areas are pretty scary to drive around and narrow paths with steep drops to the right or left, and can be especially scary since the vehicles do take some strength to navigate around.

I would highly suggest the morning tour as the day and sun beats on you. Wear pants and a shirt that you know will get dirty, especially if you are in the back of the tour group as you will get very dusty! Bring water and sunscreen. You can bring a backpack, as he will strap it to the front of the atv and is will be very secured. If it is two of you going would suggest 2 per atv as one can sit in the back and videotape or take pictures while the other drives. Also bring shoes, my wife brought flip flops and there was a small climb on magic mountain after parking and she hated it.

“Fantastic way to see the island!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

My wife and I have been on several a.t.v. trips and this was easily one of the best two thumbs up. William our guide was great taking time to point out all of the unique plant life, wind life and mount ranges that can only be found in Moorea.

“One Guide is not sensitiv enough”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

When the groupe with their yellow quads arrived at the Lookout Belvedere, the parking place was full and there was no place free for the quads. the guide (black hair, with white bone-earrings) let the groupe park just in front of the lookout, so it wasn't possible anymore to take a picture with only the scenery. He was asked, if it would be possible, that they park 20m further down, where there was plenty of space, he didn't want to do that. And not enough, after 5 minutes that he startet the motor of his quad and made noise for nothing for about 10', while the groupe was eating ananas. all other visitors had to wait until he left with his groupe to take pictures of the stunning view. I was not on the tour which is probaly very exciting. But I think and really hope, that the other guides of the company are more sensitive than this one.

“Highlight Tour of our Cruise- Thank you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Loved it! We organised this as a tour in port from a Radiance of the Seas cruise. We got one of the first tenders off the ship and were met by a taxi driver, with our names on a board, then driven to where the ATV company was located. Paperwork completed, helmet fitted and we were ready to go. 6 quads in total with the leader of the pack being William the guide. He took us up the road to where we started our adventure and the time flew from then. William was informative, entertaining and very accommodating and the photo's he took of us were emailed to us exactly as he promised. This tour has to be on everyone's list who visits Moorea as a fun way to get around and see the beauty of this island up close. Don't subject yourself to experience of being bounced over the island in the back of a ute as they just can't reach the heights that the ATV can.
