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

We did a full day tour in a group from a cruise in port for the day. Dave was a great tour guide but there was a lot of driving and the bus was very cramped and uncomfortable, particularly for those in the back seat. The tour was to be 7 hours but ran overtime by 2 hours. It was... More

We had a fantastic time with Dave on this tour. He is very professional and knowledgeable on the history of Tahiti. We done the half day tour before we were to fly back home. It was perfect to our needs as we were wanting to finish early to make it to the Tahiti market before our flight. He dropped us... More

I took a tour with Dave for 4-5 hours. He is very responsive to your needs and interests. He has a deep knowledge of the Tahiti of old and of today. If you enjoy in depth and detailed guides, Dave is a great choice. He also is a very cautious driver. I was a female traveling with Dave solo, and... More

Took Dave's half day tour of Tahiti while waiting to get on the Aranui 5. Hotel booked him for me. He is an excellent tour guide and was so informative. He knows so much about the island and his narration was engrossing. Highly recommend his services.

Had a wonderful tour of Tahiti with Dave on April 17 off the Celebrity Solstice. The itinerary he planned was great and he readily responded to our request for an extended tour as we were there on a Sunday and many things in Papeete were closed. He is very knowledgable about his adopted home and the history of the Tahitian... More
