A Great Tour of Tahiti-Nui - Go with Yota!
Michelle_H
, Apr. 2022
We had a great time with Yota! He was lovely about giving an actual tour so that we didn't miss beautiful flowers and wildlife. He's also an excellent photographer and didn't mind taking lots of pictures of us! My only constructive feedback is that there is absolutely no swimming anywhere on this trip and our girls were disappointed that there was nowhere to stop and cool off - even at the beach. Knowing this in the description of the tour would have been helpful in setting expectations. But overall, we had a great time and we highly recommend booking Yota!
icon Response from Host , Apr. 2022
Thank you for the review and sorry to learn that you and your girls were disappointed. At the end of the "What makes this tour unique?" section of the tour description, there is a note that says "No water activities during the tour." I found this might to be too short, so I will try to make it clearer. Thanks for sharing your experience. I have found areas for improvement. Overall, I am glad to have received positive feedback. I hope you enjoyed your subsequent stay on Moorea Island. Mauruuru and take care, Yota Yokoi

This was well worth it. Yota is an engaging, friendly and interesting guide who takes care to insure his guests are enjoying themselves. He is well informed and provided historical and cultural context for the sites we visited. His English is excellent. I would highly recommend this tour!

Ia ora na Richard! I'm glad to get a perfect review from you. Whether my guests are enjoying themselves safely and comfortably is the most important thing. Just after the highest level of service you got at the hotel St. Regis Bora Bora, it was a lot of pressure for me but I am very happy to hear that you were satisfied about my private tour. I will continue to do my best for future guests. Mauruuru roa and take care, Yota Yokoi

Customized tour since we had already seen Papeete market. Got to drive around island to guide’s favorite natural wonders. Hard to beat seeing the blowhole’s jumping black fish n crab predators.

Yota is enthusiastic, thoughtful and knowledgeable. He gave us a great tour around the island, shared lots of history and stories, and tailored things to our preferences. We had a wonderful day seeing many sights of Tahiti. We especially loved seeing the long-tailed white birds flying around the waterfall. So lucky. I also want to add that Yota offered us the opportunity to cancel the trip at the time of pick up due to a rainy forecast. We wanted to do the tour anyway and had a great time. Yota always brought umbrellas at each stop, just in case, but we avoided rain the whole time. Lucky again! We had such a nice time.

Ia ora na Kristin and Ann! Thanks for writing a review even though you're still traveling. It was an impressive tour with several lucky visits, thanks to your positive vibe! I always want my guests to be comfortable during the tour, I'm glad to hear you say so. You come from a place where it was snowing a week ago, so enjoy the warm weather of French Polynesia as much as you can! Mauruuru and take care, Yota Yokoi

18 days, luxury cruise and Moorea and this was by far our most enjoyable tour. Yota is so knowledgeable on the history to add to the fabulous sights he’ll show you. Accommodating, kind. Very good English. Kept us entertained for 5 hours. We learned of the culture and daily life. Do not miss this opportunity.

Ia ora na Rebecca and Joe! Thanks for choosing my tour on the last day of your long trip :-) I hope you have returned safely to home by now. It is really nice to receive good reviews from people who have traveled a lot and participated in various tours. Thank you so much. I look forward to seeing you again someday.

Yota was great. Our safety was priority, very knowledgeable, like a family, recommend him highly!!! Well worth the time, and he put in all the effort he could to make our tour unforgettable…

Mauruuru so much for the review, Robert! Considering all the preparation you guys have done for the trip (Covid-19 testing, ETIS, payment, etc.), I want to let you enjoy it from the bottom of my heart. I'm happy to have been able to share with you some of the highlights of this beautiful island. Someday when I go to California, I want to be in the passenger seat of your electric car! haha. I hope you enjoy your cruise as much as you can. Stay safe and mauruuru, Yota Yokoi

Thank you for giving me a perfect score! I am grateful for the opportunity to have met you both that day. The information I gave you was helpful and it was great to see the pictures you took on the island of moorea :-) The next time I go to SFO, please take me for a ride in your 510hp Challenger.

Great way to see the island with a knowledgeable guide!
Antoine_R
, Jan. 2022
Yoki was a very informative guide and delivered everything expected. He was kind, knowledgeable, taught us quite a few things, and took some very nice photos of our family during the tour. He had great communication leading up to the tour. We definitely would have not learned or seen as much if we had just rented a car snd toured the island on our own. The tour was a convenient and efficient way to see as much as we could in the short time we had on Tahiti. Also, the very clean, air conditioned van was nice on such a hot day. Thank you Yoki!
icon Response from Host , Jan. 2022
Thank you Antoine for this wonderful review! I'm glad you enjoyed my tour. Gio really likes birds, so impressed. I hope he is enjoying looking at the pictures of the birds you have taken by now. He can be an ornithologist in the future. Thank you for coming to Tahiti at a time when it is difficult to travel. May this year be a healthy and wonderful one for all of you! Stay safe and mauruuru, Yota Yokoi

Yota is the best!!! We had only 1 full day in Tahitit. Yota was very kind, knowledgeable and accommodating. His van was very clean he is meticulous in the details. Highly recommend him for this tour or even if you need a quick ride somewhere else on the island.

Thanks for sharing the review so soon. I was surprised to hear that you came to Tahiti from snowy home and joined my tour right away ;-) You had a very active first day! Enjoy and relax your stay at Bora Bora island under the sun :-) Mauruuru, Yota Yokoi

Thank you very much for the review and for choosing my tour for the last day of your 4 islands trip. It was nice to be able to introduce you the highlights of Tahiti in the limited time on the last day. I'm sure it's pretty cold at your home, so please don't catch a cold!

You're back home safe, Ingrid! Is there any snow on the ground lol I would like to thank you for choosing my tour at the end of your long stay in French Polynesia. Glad you enjoyed it.

Yota was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and entertaining! He picked us up in a convenient location and took us on a 5+ hour tour around Tahiti Nui. We saw archaeological sites, beautiful beaches, waterfalls, and more. He even recommended us a restaurant to eat at after and helped us get a table. Yota is the best!

Thank you so much for coming to Tahiti, despite the weekend lockdowns and frequent rule changes. I am very happy to have been able to tour this beautiful island with you and share the history with you. And that you enjoyed one of my favorite restaurants ;-) The next day's trip to Tetiaroa Island must have been wonderful too. I look forward to seeing you again. Stay safe and mauruuru, Yota Yokoi

Had an excellent time spending a couple hours with Yota! He was extremely knowledgeable and personable. The points of interest he stopped at were quite scenic. The additional informational tidbits and factoids he provided along the way were a nice bonus. Definitely would recommend!

Mauruuru roa for your great review Nel! I also spent some good time with you. I'm sure you must have enjoyed the slow pace of these islands, as you lead a very busy life. I hope you will come back for another vacation. Mauruuru and stay healthy, Yota Yokoi

Really fantastic experience. Yota is super passionate and knowledgable about the island of Tahiti, its history, and its culture, and he does a great job sharing his knowledge while observing (and driving between) several impressive spots: soaring waterfalls, botanical gardens, sacred Polynesian grounds, black sand beaches, and more. I had contemplated renting a car and doing a self-guided tour of Tahiti Nui, but the experience wouldn’t have compared; highly recommend partaking in this experience with Yota if you’re looking to efficiently explore Tahiti.
icon Response from Host , Oct. 2020
I'm so glad to read your review, Sam! Thank you so much. Especially when you say "Yota's tour is better than just renting a car", I'm here for that. I continue to make visitors happy, satisfied, there is no end. Thank you very much for coming here in such a difficult moment to travel and choosing my tour, Sam. Mauruuru and Stay healthy, Yota Yokoi

Ciao Evi! Sono molto felice perché è raro per me ricevere una recensione in italiano. Sono felice di sapere che vi è piaciuto il mio tour. Ho appena controllato la posizione della nave da crociera su cui si trova e si sta dirigendo verso Los Angeles. Speriamo che tu abbia avuto un viaggio sicuro e piacevole a Moorea, Raiatea, Tahaa e Bora Bora. Ci piace vedere le foto che pubblicate sui social media. Non vediamo l'ora di rivedervi. Rimanere al sicuro e Mauruuru, Yota Yokoi
