          Rained out in the South but Good Alternative
          The weather was terrible with very heavy rain in the south but Evan the driver was very flexible. We saw the waterfall ( Chutes de Madeleine) and then Evan took us back to Noumea where it was cloudy but not raining. He took us to a nice viewing spot, to a good barista cafe and then to the Aquarium and the Maritime Museum. It turned out to be a good day despite the rain in the south.

          New and very clean luxury vehicle. Ludo was also very friendly and assisted with all our luggage. Fast and efficient transfer to the airport with lovely music for the trip. Driver was on time and we were communicated with easily on WhatsApp from bookings until pick up. Great service. Will use again on our next visit.

          Amazing contrasts in New Calwdonia's Deep South.
          We highly recommend this tour to New Caledonia's Deep South - a vast area of widely different landscapes, from rain forest to dry scrub and even quite arid areas. The Blue River (photo) and giant Kauri pine forest are especially good, but the area is so large, you really need at least two days to see it properly. Annie was a wonderful driver and tour guide, with lots of really good cultural insights, which made our day very special.

          Awesome driver - made our tour special
          Excellent tour around Noumea with an English speaking driver (Yvan). Yvan was punctual, professional, friendly and made sure we had an excellent day. Enjoyed our stops at the market, chocolate shop in the town centre, the hill overlooking Noumea, Tjibaou Cultural Centre and the zoo, however the place we were taken to lunch was excellent! I also used this company for my airport transfers and like Yvan, Ludovic was also friendly, professional and punctual. Thank to Gaetan for his help in arranging these drivers. Also, both Yvan and Ludovic were very safe and smooth drivers - much appreciated. When I return to New Caledonia, I’ll be reaching out to these guys again.

          Warning: hot tempered employees
          Warning: Horrible service - which we ended up not using and had to go to the CC company for a refund. We came for our honeymoon and tried to reschedule the transfer for our departure, but the rude, aggressive, and harassing messaging from the customer service person was enough of a red flag to warn me against using their services at all. They even went so far as to contact me without permission on whats app, which Viator asked for screen shots of when I issued a complaint of the messages from them, which essentially were multiple rage texts over our late request (12 hours before schedule). Everyone else on our trip was very pleasant and easy to work with and we very much enjoyed our trip, with the one exception of this company’s representative. I advise not getting in the car with someone who has this degree of temper.

          Great tour for a taste of Noumea
          Excellent Day! With a variety of cultural and foodie experiences. Beautiful lunch at Marmite; a visit to Tonton Jules Chocolate shop which was yum! The time at the cultural centre and nature park was also great. Our guide Marie/Anne very knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommended!

          We don’t speak much french so we’re a little concerned about the guide we would get however when Anne walked out she was very welcoming and instantly put our minds at ease. She was willing to adjust the day to our request of places we did/didn’t want to go to and didn’t hesitate to give us the best tips and recommendations of what to do and where to do. Anne also has other tours she does which is such a shame we are leaving the island so soon because we would have definitely booked other tours through her too!

          Exceptional service
          From our experience, Gaetan runs a very good, efficient, trustworthy business. We booked an airport transfer from La Tontouta to Noumea on the day we travelled and the return the day before. Each time, we received a prompt reply and our driver, Cinthia on both occasions, was waiting for us. Cinthia spoke English and was a very pleasant person to deal with.

          Tour was guide except for the guide
          I enjoyed this tour as it covered the 3 major things I wanted to see: The cultural centre The zoological and botanical gardens La Marmite et tire bouchon. There was ample time to see and experience these activities and I was not disappointed. I have given this a 3 star rating because of the guide who spoke about how good she was a guide and the generous tips that she received. In other words hint hint! And that really took the pleasure out of this tour. By all means book the tour but I hope you have a better guide than we did.

          Punctual and efficient service
          Fantastic service. Gaetan was always punctual and happy to help with our transport needs which took the stress out of getting between both the international and domestic airports and our hotel. Spoke good English and was quick to respond to messages. Highly recommend.

          Great Service
          When I message Gaeton for pricing and availability, he responded quickly and he was also very reasonably priced with his transport service. He is friendly and helpful and would recommend using him again and for anyone needing his services.

          Friendly and reliable airport transfer
          Gaetan saved me! I had idiotically booked a transfer with a company that no longer existed (thanks to trip advisor not having removed the company when they ceased operations). The amazing staff at Chateau Royal was able to arrange a transfer at the last minute with Gaetan and I’m safely on the way to the airport now. That’s what I call the excellent service. Highly recommended.

          Prompt
          Gaetan was over helpful and available while in Noumea. He arrived at the airport and hotel on time. Since we spoke very little French and his English was excellent we had no trouble communicating.

        My wife and i had a great time being shown around this beautiful island by Gaëtan. The whole experience was made to feel very personal on our behalf as he explained lots of interesting facts and history of Nourmea. Pickup timing was perfect, vehicle was spacious, comfortable and air conditioned. And at each stop off point we were given very good time and space to walk around to explore the places and take loads of pictures, especially from the high vantage points where you could see literally the whole island. If we needed more information then Gaëtan was more than helpful to step forward. We can highly recommend.

        Very disappointed...we know times are tough but we wanted information about Nounea....New Caledonia...and the Kanaks...did not happen....all our questions had minimal information provided...places were closed and we were still taken there? Plus Gaetan spent a lot of time on his phone booking more trips....he needs to update his information about the country ..and look after the people in his cab at the time...we have done a lot of private tours around the world....this was the worst we experienced....
