My brother and I used Marc for our recent trip to Easter Island and we could not have made a better decision. Since Marc is from New Zealand, he speaks perfect English and was extremely knowledgeable about the island and its history. I could not have asked for a better guide. Thanks again Marc!

My brother and I decided to take a two and a half day trip to Easter Island while we were traveling through South America and contacted a handful of tour operators. I explained that we wanted a strictly private tour, personal pick up/drop off at airport & hotel and want to be active enough to see all the island has... More

Marc and his team are fantastic. I spent several days traversing Easter Island and Marc helped me get the most out of it. Sometimes it was just the two of us hiking around, sharing stories, and taking pictures. On the topic of pictures, be sure to check out his new book of photography of Easter Island (Easter Island - Rapa... More

Easter Island is a truly stunning place and our two tours took in all of it, at just the right pace and with just the right level of detail. Marc was super friendly, very helpful and informative, and really knows his photo locations - would definitely recommend.

I booked guided hikes to the north coast and Poike with Green Island tours. The company did an amazing job showing us the sites in these areas. On both hikes, we were shown attractions that you won't find in any guidebooks. On the north coast tour, the company extended our hike a mile or two beyond what they would normally... More

I visited Easter Island with short notice in June and Marc was able to do a fantastic job of taking care of everything: hotel, tours etc. He is very easy to deal with. The tours of the island were well thought out and, while Marc was not available when I was there, I had the pleasure of touring with his... More

I loved my tours with Green Island Tours. I did the Moi Monuments Tour, the Birdman Cult Tour, and the Sunrise Tour with Marc over the course of 2 days. He was extremely professional, personable, and very knowledgeable about the island's history and culture. The first day of my tours was my birthday, and I was a single traveler so... More

My friend and I spent several days touring with Marc on Easter Island. Marc knows the Island like the back of his hand and over several days he took us to many different photo spots. We concentrated on the “golden hours”, going out in the morning before sunrise and then again in the late afternoon to capture before and after... More

We spent five days on Easter Island, and organised tours for all days through Green Island Tours. We sent through our requests prior to our arrival, and Marc was extremely helpful in putting everything together for us, and came up with a proposed itinerary, and we were even able to book accommodation through them as well. Once on the island,... More

Marc Ross Shields...owner of Green Island Tours, Easter Island. This guy is an absolute legend, hiring Marc as my private tour guide totally made my trip. He accommodated my flight delay and actually reimbursed me for the planned excursions that I missed while stuck in Santiago airport. Marc made contingency plans around the torrential rain which drowned out most of... More
