Having read all the great reviews of Samoa Scenic we were hugely disappointed with the tour they took us on. It fact it ruined my holiday as we were unable to get back to Savaii after this to see some of the lovely sights we had been told about. We had requested to do the South Coast trip but were... More

This tour company will show you some great sites and the experiences are worth the money but there were a few unpleasant things that should be mentioned. Firstly, though we bought transfers in Australia for airport-hotel, they didn't have a record of us and they said they were only at the airport to take the flight crew so we had... More

This tour group is an awesome way to get around the island and see some amazing sites. I highly recommend going to the trench for a swim. This is a MUST GO place. They served us a BBQ lunch which was huge and delicious. The tour guide was really informative about the local villages, tourist spots and the culture.

We spent a fabulous day with Samoa Scenic and Sophie! I booked many months in advance and posted this trip on cruise critic. Sophie was beyond amazing in organizing people I told her about and we all had the most amazing day seeing so many beautiful sights! We even were able to watch a traditional wedding as we savored the... More

We booked Essence of Upolo and there were 6 of us on a bus for 20. We indicated that we were interested in scenery and photos. We were not scheduled to go swimming. It was a day-long shore excursion for us. Ano was our guide, and very accommodating. He said just to tell him when to stop, in addition to... More

Samoa Scenic did all our transfers from the airport to hotel & also to the ferry to go to Savaii. Also went on a around the island tour with them. They were always on time, very friendly & knowledgeable about the island. Would thoroughly recommend them.

We booked this tour with a group of Cruise Critics for 2 buses of 8 each. We had more than enough room with a single seat each in a comfortable van with a driver and guide. Our tour was for the whole day and worth every penny. Swam in the trench, barbecue lunch on a beach, tours of waterfalls and... More

Wonderful tour of Apia Township and the surrounding areas. Stopped at the flea market, visited St Anthony's Cathedral, Robert Louis Stevenson's home, the Cultural Village, and a tour of Apia. At the Robert Louis Stevenson home Samoa Scenic tours provided wonderful local fruits, water, and juice. Loved the small group tour.

Samoa Scenic Tours have been extremely helpful and dependable even at the very last minute. Upon landing, June 20 in the wee hours, the large and pleasant 'fellow' polynesian :) I say this affectionately being half polynesian myself, was extremely patient in waiting for me to purchase my SIM card and internet mobile data package.
