    Get on an ATV!!

    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....
