David picked us up in a spotless new boat. He took us to four of the best spots that we have ever been snorkeling at. We felt ultra comfortable and safe at each snorkel site because he was the first one in and the last one out of the water. If you are looking for a knowledgeable guide that can point out every little creature in a coral garden to you, David is your man. By far, this was our favorite excursion in French Polynesia. We are hoping to see David again on our next trip to Bora Bora.

David's tour was exceptional- the best snorkeling tour I have done! He is a very professional, personable, knowledgeable and kind guide who demonstrates his love for what he does. Every site we went to was spectacular with plenty of beautiful fish, coral, and scenery. The boat is very nice and comfortable. I couldn't recommend this trip more. You won't regret it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so muc for this kind review Maria. I really enjoyed chatting with you today. All the best to you and Justin for the future :) Kindest regards David

David was outstanding! A+ snorkel tour guide - incredibly knowledgeable and passionate. Communication prior to our tour was excellent and he could not have been more accommodating. His boat is wonderful and comfortable. We loved that he jumped in the water with us and found all the perfect spots to view the magical life beneath the waters of Bora Bora! Our time spent with David was the highlight of our time in Bora Bora. Merci beaucoup!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mauruuru Leanne, It was great having you on board. I am really pleased that you and Mickael had a great time here. I wish you all the best and hopefully to see you again next year :) Kindest regrads David

Spectacular. David showed us a fantastic morning. His boat was in mint condition. The water he provided was NOT in plastic bottles. This reenforced our awareness of the fragility of the environment around us. We had a wonderful time. He's an excellent guide. We really got our money's worth.

This is the best way to see all of Bora Bora. David was an excellent guide and captain. He was very knowledgeable about the island and it's culture. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

I have used Tours By Locals for over 10 years, and I must say that David is one of the best guides I have encountered. First of all, he is a GREAT guy and very knowledgeable about the island and what it has to offer. He was prompt and super nice and totally into being with my partner and I every step of the way. His new boat is awesome and we got to experience the finest snorkeling spots seeing amazing sea life. We will totally call him again when we return. This is a MUST. Thanks so much, David
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your very kind words and fantastic review. It was an absolute pleasure to have you both on board and to share this magnificent island with you. I look forward to welcoming you back in the future :). I wish you all the very best for your futures. Kindest regards David

This tour is a must while visiting Bora Bora!!! Highly recommend! We figured the tour would be great, but David exceeded our expectations. The boat was immaculate and very comfortable. We were essentially alone at the beautiful snorkel spots. We enjoyed our snorkeling experience much more than our 5 scuba dives! The relaxing tour of the island/lagoon coupled with David's more than pleasant dimeanor made us regret not booking two days. Don't miss this one!! Merci beaucoup David!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thank you so much for taking time to leave a review for me I greatly appreciate it. It was a pleasure to show you both around Bora Bora and I am very flattered that you regret not booking a second tour which leads me to believe I must be doing something right ;) Thanks again and I hope to see you again in the future. All the very best to you both David

David was excellent. He communicated very well up until the minute he picked us up and was responsive throughout the entire process. He was very knowledgeable about the area, was very friendly, had all of the equipment with various sizes and had some soft drinks and snacks for us as well. He also has done a fair bit of traveling himself and it was fun to get to know him. Would absolutely recommend him for anyone considering diving in Bora Bora!

David's tour was excellent in every way. We really enjoyed our time with him and this is a great way to see Bora Bora--from the lagoon. His "snacks" were delicious!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Anthony, Thank you for much for your kind words and 5* rating :) I very much appreciate you taking time to leave a review for me. It was my pleasure to have you on board and if you come to Bora Bora again I will be very happy to see you again. I wish you all the very best for the future. Kindest regards, Davic

David was incredible! His boat was comfortable - he was SO informative and gracious. He took us to places we had only dreamed of! We've snorkeled in many places but NEVER seen anything more beautiful. Without a doubt our favorite tour of the South Pacific!!

You were an absolute pleasure to have on board and I thoroughly enjoyed showing you around this little slice of paradise I am lucky enough to call home. I wish you all the very best for the future. David.

David picked up us at the tender pier in Bora Bora and took all around the island for a fabulous morning. We had the best snorkel experiences ever. We swam over a large Manta Ray, swam with spotted eagle rays and saw beau fill coral and fish. David is an excellent captain and is very thoughtful. Wonderful...do not miss this.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Dennis and Susan, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review for me - especially following our discussions on this very topic ;) I am very glad you enjoyed your tour with me and I really enjoyed meeting you both and showing you around Bora Bora. I wish you all the very best for the future. Sunny regards from Bora Bora, David.

Our 1/2 day private tour with David was the highlight of our trip to Bora Bora! David took us around the main island stopping at 4 different locations to snorkel. We bonded with David instantly with his respect for marine life and overall knowledge of Bora Bora in and out of the water. David's boat was clean, comfortable and well maintained. We highly recommend David and will definitely book another tour with him when we return to Bora Bora in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your very kind review! I very much look forward to welcoming you both back to Bora Bora :) I wish you all the best for the future. David.

David set a new high bar for private guides in my book with his kind and excellent job showing us the wonders of the sea around Bora Bora. He picked us up in his comfortable boat directly from our hotel dock and we set off. During our half-day tour we snorkeled in 4 spots seeing amazing fish, sting rays, eagle rays and were lucky enough to come across a manta ray as well. David took excellent care of us and provided drinks, a small snack, equipment and more. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED A must do!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your fantastic review. I am very glad you enjoyed your tour with me. I enjoyed very much our conversations and being able to show you this most amazing place I get to call home. Believe it or not it was just another normal day in paradise...........I am lucky ;) because this is my office ��. I really hope to see you again here in Bora Bora . All the very best. David.
