Ron was our fantastic safari guide. Very experienced in explaining and telling stories about the places. The vehicle was great and also the size of the group, 8 in total. We enjoyed the pineapple plantations and a pineapple champagne that a generous man from the group bought for all of us. The views of all the stops are amazing and Ron drove excellently through adventurous paths!

The tour of Moorea was absolutely beautiful. Our guide was very knowledgeable and great to work with. The open air seats in the back of a pickup weren’t the most comfortable but added to the ambiance.

This was a highlight of our trip. Mario the operator was fabulous with his knowledge and sense of humour. Although some of the tracks were pretty rough, it did not distract from the beauty of Moorea. Highly recommend this tour but don't be tardy as Mario will continually pay out on you. First hand knowledge but all in good fun.

Some Good/some Bad
May 23, 2023
The tour itself was EXCELLENT, but we were lucky to have made it, as we were not on land on the day that the original tour date was to be held due to the crossing of the Date Line. Royal Caribbean were WONDERFUL in allowing us to phone the tour operator for free from the ship and he rescheduled the tour to an alternate date. This tour should not have been sold to us as it did not exist on the date advertised.

This was an excellent excursion. Ron was very well spoken and gave us time to take pictures at the stops. The vehicle had comfortable seats which was a relief as the roads are steep and a bit rough. The views are spectacular.

For us a fantastic tour but the others ... we noticed that the tour purchased with the ship, in addition to costing more all the Jeeps were together, we counted 6 and each Jeep contained 8 people, you do the math, chaotic. instead our Guide was fantastic, he explained many things to us and at every stop he was nice and well informed about the history and geology of the

This was a great tour of the island. The guide was informative and entertaining. We were able to see some different aspects of the island and got to see some great views. Some of the terrain was a little rugged which helped to make this tour memorable.

A Great Time
November 11, 2022
We had an outstanding experience with a guide who was knowledgeable and personable, and obviously loved his work! There were only 4 of us on the excursion (a terrific change from the 25-40 people on a ship sponsored excursion) which meant that we all could ask all the questions we wanted and spend a little extra time at stops.

We enjoyed this tour very much. We drove all around this beautiful island. Our driver explained about the flora and fauna of the island. We saw pineapple fields, learned how vanilla is hand pollinated & saw beautiful flowers and scenic views. Would recommend.

The Best Land Excursion
January 01, 2020
We took a 51 day cruise and decided to try a land excursion on Moore’s Island. The driver/guide, Ron, was waiting for us at the pier. It was a tour of 7 but one couple didn’t show up so just 5 of us got on the back of a 4x4 track. Ride was very comfortable. The first stop was the Magic Mountain. Ron is an excellent driver and he safely managed to climb up to the top for a gorgeous view! Then visited Frits Farm where we tried tasty jams and learned how they hand-pollinate vanilla. Ron made many stops to explain: how the coral atolls were created; how they grow pineapples, bananas and many other tropical fruits. He is very knowledgeable. Due to the weather change, he rearranged the itinerary and headed to the Belvedere before rain starts. Then we stopped at the fruit juice factory to have another tasting of liquor they make. Ron never rushed us from looking around at each spot. I wish we had more time to tour with the excellent tour guide! We definitely recommend this tour.

An exciting day and seeing all the back roads of the island. There were just six of us in the rear of a safari truck. Our driver was friendly and took the time to explain all the areas we visited. A rough ride at times, but that added to the fun. We're happy that we booked it.

First time ever taking an excursion and it was GREAT! Mario is so proud of his island and his personality, presentation and knowledge of Moore's history was fun and fascinating. A very safety conscious person Mario made sure his passengers were safe and he even took the time to help a person unfamiliar with the roads to get their vehicle "up the hills". One more thing..Mario speaks several languages so everyone on tour will be included in the fun.

Exciting Safari
June 21, 2019
With all the rain on this island at the end of April our Driver/tour guide had to find alternate routes to sites. He did a spectacular job & we had a lot of fun during the ride. We saw all the best views up & down the mountains. We were picked up on time & wevgot a great historical & current info about this lovely island. Guide was very professional & knowledgeable. We enjoyed his company very much & I would not hesitate to recommend your tours to anyone visiting Moore's.

This tour was just fantastic! Our guide was very knowing of everything around, giving and showing us in details lots of things about the plants, the surroundings and how things go in Moorea. He even changed the tour order as to avoid the crowds of tourists and the rain. Moorea is a real nice place to see, even better than Bora Bora.

We were a group of seven & we sat on benches in the back of a mini truck. This tour took us into the mountains, through water crossing to visit beautiful vistas, to see gardens of flowers and different plants and fruit (pineapple, avocado etc). We had a great time bouncing around along unpaved roads and our guide Ron was very informative. This tour might not suite those with back problems although our group did include one person with this issue who sat upfront with the guide and an 87yr old who thoroughly enjoyed herself

Safari Mario was easy to find at the dock and had my name on a board to catch my attention. We had an 8-person open air truck with cushions on the seat. So much better than a bus full of tourists! Mario was super friendly and full of good info of the Moorea area. He took us places a big bus could NEVER have gone. We were totally happy with our choice of tours with Costco and will definitely book again with them on our next cruise.

Fun way to explore attractions around Moorea
February 26, 2019
This 4x4 excursion with Mario was a lot of fun. He picked us up from the Sofitel and off we went for a day with a guide that knows this place well. Lot’s of fun facts, history, and definitely lots of jokes. This was a fun itinerary that covered Cook’s Bay, pineapple farms, Belvedere Lookout, Magic Mountain, the tropical garden, a local distillery. For those of you that love pictures, Mario is very good at stopping and taking pictures along the way, so ditch the selfie sticks and vacation photos with your arm stretched out. This excursion was a lot of fun!

Had a fun time on the Safari around Moorea. It was an adventure riding in the back of a truck along the side of Magic mountain. Guide was very knowledgeable about the island. This was our first time taking a shore excursion offered besides the cruise ship and was pleasantly surprised on what was offered.

Ron took us on a wonderful and interesting tour, including the growing of vanilla which I did not know about. Beautiful scenery and being so high in places made you feel on top of the world. Of course we made a stop at the Rhum shop and tasted and bought. Ron was a good driver and some of the tracks needed someone like that. Pineapples growing in an old volcano, wonderful!

Fun way to spend time on Moorea
May 14, 2018
We spent a wonderful morning on the island of Moorea touring around with Safari Mario. Our driver's name was Nico and he was fantastic. He provided lots of information at each stop and made sure no one was left behind. The ride to the top of Magic Mountain was like being on a ride at Disneyland... so fun! The view from the top was amazing and worth the hike up. I would highly recommend this excursion if you are wanting to see a part of the island rather then just from the ocean.
