“Everyone visiting Moorea should do a FranckyFranck tour!”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Francky certainly knows how to look after his guests and is only too happy to go above and beyond to accommodate them. He has pulled together a good mix of Mo'orea highlights - views, history, legend, flora, industry, agriculture, geography and presents it in a great way.

He takes special care of everyone, but especially those who might need a little more comfort on some of the bumpy stretches on this drive.
I was travelling solo so joined in with 3 other random couples. Francky was paying attention at all times to everyone to make sure we were all enjoying ourselves. He has a lot of knowledge to share with his guests and also quickly makes an assessment of whether to inject his unique humour into the proceedings making it extremely enjoyable and memorable.
....and not only is he an excellent guide he also offers his services as a photographer so you don't need to rely on selfies and in so doing passes on some camera tips.
He seems to be well loved by the locals at all the various stop-off points.

We were a party of 7. Myself, my wife, our 2 kids (ages 8 and 5), my sister, and my parents all went for a half day private tour with Franckyfranck. This was my third trip to Moorea and my wife's second. Everyone else in our group were first timers. I had been on two Moorea 4x4 tours with other tour providers and my memory of the those was mediocre. Franckyfrank made this 4x4 day incredible! Like others have said, his enthusiasm and humor made the trip a delight! He was great with the kids, and at the same time made it interesting for the adults. He is very knowledgable and seems to have a great rapport with other islanders. He is very easy to talk to and makes you feel like a friend right away. I can't say enough good things about the tour. On our next trip to Moorea we will look up Franckyfrank again for sure, and we would do the full day tour. It's a great way to gain some knowledge of the island early in your trip.

We booked this sort of last minute, thinking we'd want something to do on our "no dive" day. Francky Franck was AWESOME, not only is he knowledgable but he's also hilarious. He's more than willing to take some side trips if you want and was totally accommodating of everyone. We did the 4x4 tour but he leads plenty of other tours that I'm sure are equally entertaining.

“Loads of Fun!!!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

We booked Franckyfrank based on Trip Advisor reviews and were so glad we did! He lives up to the hype. This was our second trip to Moorea and we brought our kids this time (age 8, 11). We'd done a tour like this before, but Francky Franck was much more entertaining and gave us a lot of very cool fact about the island that we'd never heard before. He jokes that his English isn't good, but it was just fine. We went to Magic Mountain, which a lot of tours don't go to. The road is not for the faint of heart but the view is GORGEOUS. The Tropical Garden was beautiful and plan to bring some $$ to buy the homemade marmalades, sorbet and fresh fruit smoothies. We actually went back a second time on our own because it was so fun. Don't consider booking any other tour than FranckyFranck. After all, how many tour guides are good enough to capture four people jumping for joy in paradise at the same time!

“Excellent Jeep Tour of Beautiful Moorea”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

What can I say that hasn't already been said about FranckyFranck Tours... well, during our half day exploration of the island, my Husband and I really came to appreciate all the Moorea has to offer. The beauty and history abounds. We had a great time learning about the local plants/wildlife and seeing some amazing 360 views of the island. Our tour had several people speaking two different languages, which was handled very well by FranckyFranck. We all were able to understand the history of the island and take everything in. As a tour guide, FranckyFranck possess everything you could want, knowledge and humor in just the right amount. Also, it was nice that FranckyFrank picked us up right in our hotel lobby and we were on our way.

I'd highly recommend experiencing Moorea on the Jeep tour. It gives you a good perspective of the island, and if possible makes you appreciate it even more.
