One of the best ways to see the island.....AND get away from the congested roads.....is to get on an ATV! Henri Eskenazy is the man to see at "D-Tour" Tahiti.
Henri took us on a backroads adventure, His company, D-Tour Tahiti, based out of the lovely Hotel Beachcomber in Papeete, rents ATVs and guides you through these half-day or full day tours. If you'd prefer to enjoy your views on the crystal blue waters, Henri also rents Jet skis!
We had a great time touring the island on these bikes. Henri and Syb gave me a quick lesson on how to maneuver this big honker........since I had never ridden one in my life!!
All Henri had to say to me in his deep, sultry French accent was: "Just remember, YOU have the POWER!" That did it for me. I was ready to rock (not roll!) on the ATV!
It was a great trip through the island as we toured through beautiful coastal beaches, and lovely waterfalls....
