Did tour with group off cruise ship. Dave was waiting at the gate and we were first out of the gate. Went right around the island of Tahiti and stopped at numerous locations. Although Dave came to Tahiti himself from Hawaii some years back, he has gained intimate knowledge of the island and passed on this info to us. Great... More

We had a great time with Dave. His knowledge of the history, culture and landscape was complete and interesting. We learned a lot and saw all aspects of life on Tahiti and in French Polynesia. Highly recommend Dave's services!

Our family (couple with 22 and 20 year old daughters) had a private tour with Dave for approximately 4 hours. He picked us up from our hotel and offered to drop us and our luggage directly at the ferry in time for our crossing to Moorea, which was appreciated. He is knowledgeable about aspects of the history, life and culture... More

We had such an amazing day with Dave. His tour is great way to see so much of the island in half a day. He is very knowledgeable of history, local customs, and plants/trees on the island. It also helps Dave speaks English and does his whole tour in English. Dave seems to know most of the locals which helped... More

The tour around Tahiti was very comfortable and informative. Dave was a great tour guide - knows a lot of history of the island and secret stopping points. You can customise the trip how you like. We went to the food trucks after our trip instead of being dropped at the hotel then after an hour and half Dave personally... More

We had 10 people in our group & Dave was waiting for us as we got off the ship. The guy is very friendly & a bundle of knowledge. He is happy to take your picture. Nothing... More

Dave is an American living in Tahiti. He operates small group tours which are packed with information and flexible about stop times or locations. We found him to be very knowledgeable about the Tahiti island, it's history and even the flora and fauna on the islands. He is quite willing to take photographs of customers and drives slowly, willing to... More

Three couples had a layover day in Papeete before flying home from a cruise and luckily found Dave's VIP Tours. We picked up another couple in Dave's roomy van, then headed out for a circle tour of the island. Dave is a Hawaiian haole who fell in love with a Tahitian lady and made Papeete his home. He is very... More

Dave’s Tahiti VIP Tours offers half day, full day, and private tours of the island. Three of us chose a private tour as we disembarked from our ship. Dave took us on a tour around the island. He stopped at many photo ops and at points of historical or cultural interest. Dave was an incredibly deep source of knowledge about... More
