“The most amazing place & tour ever!”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

This tour has been probably my #1 in the whole world! For the incredible place and lagoon, Teking's very special sense of humor, the great snorkeling and amazing quantity of fishes, the amazing food, and all those different blue colors... I would recommend this tour to everybody who wants to know what one day in PARADISE looks like! We had fun the whole day and everything is so great you spend the day with a big smile on your face. Thanks Teking for this wonderful experience!!

“Great end to our holiday.”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

Having spent six days in Aitutaki, we decided to end our holiday with an island hop and BBQ lunch. We are very pleased that we chose Teking Tours.
The snorkelling was top class (Phi Phi island, not even close!), the commentary and banter excellent and the BBQ food amazing.
We had a wonderful time chatting to other couples on the boat and around the dinner table and would recommend this to anyone who wishes to get off the main island and see some beautiful scenery and underwater delights.
Swimming with the Giant Trevally, Napoleon Rass, many colourful smaller species and seeing so many giant clams, truly made the trip very good value for money.
The pickup from the hotel was on time and Te King was a perfect host.

Top Notch.

“Outstanding customer service”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

We were so disappointed when our cruise ship was unable to tender in to Aitutaki and we missed our tour with Teking Lagoon Cruises. But I wanted to express my gratitude for the professional way in which Dennis handled our email inquiry about a refund. He quickly responded and ensured a prompt refund through PayPal to my account within days. Very professional and appreciated since it wasn't their fault we had to cancel the tour. This level of service is not common these days. We hope to return to Aitutaki and Teking would be my first and only choice. Thanks Dennis!

I defiantly recommend TEKING's cruise. Not only was I entertained by his funny sense of humour & a delicious lunch, I was also educated about all the different spices in the water the motus & it's history.
You want to see & do the best parts of the lagoon in Aitutaki?? Go with TEKING! He will take you there.

“The best snorkelling spots,great food and amazing lagoon!”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

W have been 5 times in Aitutaki and we have been few times with :"the king cruise"
First the positives:
1. Teking uses smaller boats and can get you to islands ( honeymoon, maina ) that the big boats can not.
2. Teking knows the most amazing snorkeling spots in the lagoon
3. The BBQ is fresh fish and lots of fresh fruits
Second the negatives about "the king"
1. He talks to much and not everyone find his jokes funny especially when you spend $100 a day per person the last you want is to get a headache , all you want is to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Aitutaki lagoon.
2. He does not have any life jacquets on board and he does not seem to think he need some!!! definetely not something to be proud when you take tourists in the deep waters He should be prepared in case of emergency .. a bit if a island time with safety procedures. Not everyone are good swimmers !

The guys that work for Teking are absolutely amazing ( captain good and no good ) one of them caught a BIG TURTLE WITH HIS OWN HANDS while the turtle was swimming so fast in the middle of the lagoon!! Absolutely amazing!

I think Teking needs to change the way he entertaines his clients and I think, "TEKING" needs profesional tour guide and customer service training apart from this the whole tour was amazing!
