  • We had visited Papeete once before, but this Segway tour was an excellent way to cruise around the town. We felt like we saw much more than on our previous visit. We were also delighted to find that since our last visit they had built a new harbor-side park/pedestrian walkway that was perfect for a Segway tour. The only thing that could have been improved was a greater emphasis on safety. We had done Segway tours before, in Chicago and Indianapolis, but they were always done in a park and/or pedestrian-only areas. On this tour, they took us out on city streets and sidewalks where we were often encountering vehicle traffic and/or squeezing through narrow areas on sidewalks where we had to weave our way among LOTS of people on foot. Toward the end of our tour we came to an area where a construction project had shut down the sidewalk, which then required us to go out into the street and go against traffic in a very narrow area. While trying to avoid the oncoming vehicles, my husband's Segway wheel brushed up against the curb and the Segway began to spin and threw him to the pavement. He narrowly missed getting hit by a car! Fortunately he didn't break any bones, but he was very bruised and very sore for several days. The company needs to check its planned route each day before they take a group out so there are no surprises like closed sidewalks to deal with...that's just common sense. I will give praise to Viator,however. My husband's injuries were such that we were not able to take part in our planned jet ski tour the next day also booked through Viator. Even though we were past the deadline for canceling without penalty, I explained the situation to them and they gave us a full refund for the jet ski tour we missed as a result of the Segway mishap. Thank you.

  • Learning to ride was fun. Leader was good. only slight problem was necessity to go in street due to construction work.
    I would take a Segway tour again. I am 85

  • Wow! What a great way of seeing the area.
    Great instruction, great guide and superb value for money.
    If you are worried about falling off - don't be!
    There were 2 guys over 70 on our tour and they had a ball!

  • My wife and I have never been disappointed using Viator. We booked a 21 day cruise to Hawaii and then sail to Tahiti and surrounding islands. While on Tahiti, our cruise ship did not have any shore excursions. We looked at Viator web site and found a 2.5 hour Segway tour of Papeete, Tahiti. We loved it! The local contact Viator used was Maevaride and the tour guide's name was Chole. She was a wonderful host and ensured we were comfortable operating the Segway prior to the tour. She provided water and a helmet and on the slow speed of the Segway we zipped around the city. Once we were more confident of operation the Segway Chole asked if we wanted to go a bit faster. We said yes and the programed the Segways to go a bit faster - but we still had complete control of the speed. Chole answered all our Papeete questions. Some questions stumped her and she got on here cell phone after we stopped and found out the answer using Google or other means. Overall the tour was a huge success. My wife and I highly recommend it and we are 67 years old.
    We are attaching a group photo of us with Chole at a site in Papeete.

  • Awesome way to see the city. Guide was fantastic. Really new his history and local stories. Showed us some very pretty government buildings along the boulevard plus especially loved riding along the harbour side and waters edge. Even got to see the markets and buy some pearls.

  • Very fun time on the Segway! After a training lesso, we were off to see the local attractions in Tahiti. We rode around town, saw the church, the presidential palace, the market, Bougainville Park. Segways are new to the area, so many of the locals were amazed to see something like this and many were inquiring about them. At the end we were able to ride them at a higher speed around the square. This part was great! Helmets and water were included. Very nice tour guide. Bring sunscreen!!

  • Great tour, great instruction first, always made sure we were ok, very safety conscious, great value for money

  • Gerald was such a super fantastic guide! My husband and I had never ridden Segways before but with Gerald and #39;s instructions we had no problems! And it was so nice that it was just us 3! What an amazing way to see the city! Gerald was a fountain of information and just super!

  • Easy to find. Prompt to start. Safety first. One-on-one instruction. A little practice. And then we were off for two hours of fun, sights, photo-stops, with just the right balance of information about each location, monument, tree, activity etc. This was, for us, a brilliant way to do a fast, value-for-money tour in the sunshine, with an English speaking, enthusiastic guide. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend to others.

  • Our guide, Elise was terrific. Great way to see some of Papeete.
