Private tour guide Tai Fiti

Tai Fiti A.

Apia, Samoa

Talofa from Samoa. The first country on earth to see the sunrise.

I carry four chiefly titles representing the communities or villages that I have blood relations to. These are seen as positions of great responsibility to provide care and protection through lesdership. I have a long Samoan name which I know it's a mouthful, so I would prefer you simply call me Tai for short. I will be honoured to be your guide on my island paradise.
I was born and raised in Samoa and was fortunate to have completed a couple of degrees from our local university majoring in Pacific history and English literature.
I had represented our country as a FIFA referee for 6 years and I also worked as a public servant for the Samoa Ministry of Justice for 12 years. I am now managing the local soccer champion club Lupe o le Soaga.
I registered as a recognised tour operator with the Samoa Tourism Authority in 2017 after fulfilling all necessary requirement. This has enabled me to fuse all of my life experience from travelling as a referee around the southern hemisphere and knowing what to expect as a tourists, having in depth understanding of Samoan politics and also utilising my history background to impart upon my customers the best experience they can possibly have in Samoa.
My 12 years as a public servant enabled me to do visitations and inspections all over the country which took me to even the remotest areas. . . the secret spots!
I am now happily married with one son and I will be glad to show you the best Samoa has to offer.
