A tour not taken

I was not able to find the guide. I did not, in the end, actually take any tour of Papeete. This tour was a replacement for another tour which was canceled by the tour operator.
Papeete Walking Tour with Christian

Booked Papeete Walking Tour at the suggestion of my partner, and so glad I did. We had a great time. Christian showed us the highlights of downtown Papeete. He is very pleasant and knowledgeable. If we find ever find ourselves back in Tahiti, we will definitely look Christian up. Thanks so much Christian! Ivory & Will

Christian gave us a personal tour. He is quite an historian and we had an overview of Papeete past and present. Also he knew where to get presents for the grandkids plus a bottle of wine. Recommended If you need a shorter 2 hour city tour on foot. The starting point is the tourist office by the ferry.

Papeete Walking Tour.

The guide did not turn up. We later found out that the company doing this tour had ceased to trade approximately two months ago. We tried their telephone number and it was not accepting incoming calls. I will be looking for Viator to reimburse the cost of the tour in full as soon as possible.

It was great to get a customized tour of the city especially on my first real day there. Christian was super friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks to him, I now know the history of many places in the city and how to get to many places.

Exceptional knowledge
, Jun 2019
We had a fantastic experience with Christian who is the Owner/Guide. A very comprehensive 3 hours where we visited the Marina, Gardens, Protestant Cathedral, Catholic (Notre Dame) Cathedral, Government buildings, Presidential Palace, Central Market along with many other sights. Christian was very knowledgeable and shared with us his extensive knowledge of Papeete and Tahitian history. We highly recommend this tour. Christian, thank you for an excellent tour on Friday 28 June. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you. Best wishes Tom and Jill New Zealand

Little Train Walking tour.

I happened to be the only tourist on the 1:00 P.M. tour. It turned out to be all on the little train on wheels and no walking. I saw the majority of Papeete. I was scheduled for the 9:00 A.M. tour which did not happen, however the owner made up for it by getting me to the cruise pier after the tour and presenting me with a few local cosmetic gifts. If I travel to Papeete again, I will book the walking tour.
Our guide was the best!! He took us...
