Five plus star rating. I had to arrange something to do with 4 adults with different wants from 9a to our 10p flights, I searched for a private tour person who we could enjoy for the day. Fabrice worked with scheduling last year before 2 Tahiti covid closures. May 2022 just completed our 3rd try!
Fabrice was the perfect ending to our French Polynesian adventure. Fabrice is a large step above your typical tour guide. His stories of his grandpa and family, his extensive knowledge of Tahiti culture with a myriad of our questions answered,
On a north side market, we bought trays of sushi and goodies for lunch on a picnic table waterside, Fabrice telling us so many stories!
Continuing around the island, we ended up watching sunset at the Tahiti harbor park.

After looking at a few different tours we were recommended to use Tahiti Eden Tours.
Our original plan was to rent a car and drive ourselves, however after reading all the negative reviews on car rentals we decided it wouldn’t be much more money to have a guide drive us around in air-conditioned comfort.
Sure enough we were very happy to have chosen Eden Tours. Our guide promptly arrived in the morning in a large and comfortable van with plenty of cold water.
While driving, the large windows provided a fantastic view of the beautiful island of Tahiti and allowed us to see how the locals live and go about their daily life.
We were driven to all the famous sights and attractions while receiving interesting information along the way, stopping at each spot and spending as much time as needed, never being rushed.
Eventually at the end of our tour we were dropped off back at our hotel.
We really enjoyed the tour and our guide. He really went above and beyond to make sure we saw everything we wanted to and had a great time.

Fabrice was an amazing tour guide. He even took time so we grab a quick lunch. He is very knowledgeable and was very patient answering all of our questions. Highly recommend him. He provide water, great directions, and details during pick up and drop off.

The driver and guide Fabrice picked me up at my hotel at 8 am and took me around the beautiful island. On the way to the first stop, the Marae temple, he introduced me to the Tahitian culture and history. During the entire trip of 5 hours Fabrice gave me all information asked and much more detailed and funny facts. Great driving - highly recommended.

As soon as we got off our Paul Gauguin cruise ship, Fabrice was right there to greet us. We were a party of five and two really nice British couple were already in the van. It was so humid, but his van is clean and well-air conditioned. We were all impressed with Fabrice's knowledge of Tahiti. He is retired Air Force and has a lot of talent once you get to know him. He could answer any and all of our questions. The places we stopped at were spectacular: Water falls, grottos, botanical garden, public beaches. He showed us how beautiful Tahiti is. Fabrice provided cold water and umbrellas. He did not rush the tour and was so kind to wait for us to check into our hotel and then bring us to a restaurant so we did not have to walk. (it was hot and humid) I HIGHLY RECOMMEND FABRICE. You will not regret booking this. It was one of our highlights and extremely reasonably priced.

My husband and I came to Tahiti in December and we arranged a half day island tour upon our arrival. Fabrice picked us up at the airport and gave us a wonderful tour of Tahiti that included all of the hot spots. Fascinating!! Fabrice's English is outstanding and he's very knowledgeable! Highly recommend. Not only that, he made an appointment for us at a pharmacy to get a Covid test 24 hours before departure back to the US. We also got in a pickle when we found out that our hotel didn't have taxi service so he picked us up and took us to the airport with very short notice! He will take very good care of you! Merci, Fabrice!

We were met at the ship on time and were helped with our luggage. I can't remember the name of our guide, but he was delightful and very knowledgeable about the island and surrounding areas. Also, he was the owner of the company. We had lunch in a local restaurant which had air conditioning. Not all restaurants do. He took us to the airport and again helped us with our luggage. His van has wonderful air conditioning. If you have any question when travel resumes just contact me. I think we saw all the spots of interest in Tahiti.

What a wonderful way to end our trip to Tahiti! Guide was exceptionally informed, knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. We learned a lot about Tahiti's culture and history and enjoyed all the sights. The guide accommodated us in helping us return our rental car at the beginning of our trip and stopping at a grocery on the way back to the hotel. The sights chosen were exceptional.

Fabrice is a Tahiti native, with a fascinating background and family history. Besides learning a lot and seeing all the main sites and views on the excellent tour, it was great to get to know Fabrice and learn about his family, and life in French Polynesia. He has been to ALL of the 118 islands! He's very happy to answer all your questions (we had a lot!). This is an excellent way to get acquainted with the main island. Even if you only have a one-day layover en route to another destination, it's a great investment of time to take this tour.

Fabrice was personable, educating and accommodating. A great guy who’s family has lived in Tahiti for generations! We saw all the main attractions: ancient ruins, waterfalls, black sand beaches, grottos and incredible fauna, as well as, off the beaten path spots. Learned about the history of Polynesians and how they navigated all across the Pacific from Taiwan to New Zealand to Hawaii to Easter Island and of course all the Polynesian Islands. We had the privilege of feeding sacred eels and seeing the most revered and dangerous wave to surf in all the world. We even rescued an injured duckling! I cannot recommend Fabrice’s tour more. Even if you have only 5 hours in Tahiti or a whole week it is not to be missed!
