Tahiti Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Tahiti (English: ; Tahitian [taˈhiti]; French pronunciation: [ta.iti]; previously also known as Otaheite) is the largest island of the Windward group of the Society Islands in French Polynesia, located in the central part of the Pacific Ocean. Divided into two parts, Tahiti Nui (bigger, northwestern part) and Tahiti Iti (smaller, southeastern part), the island was formed from volcanic activity; it is high and mountainous with surrounding coral reefs. Its population is 133,627 inhabitants (2020), making it the most populous island of French Polynesia and accounting for 68.7% of its total population. Tahiti is the economic, cultural, and political centre of French Polynesia, an overseas collectivity (and the sole overseas country) of the French Republic. The capital of French Polynesia, Papeete, is located on the northwest coast of Tahiti. The only international airport in the region, Faa'a International Airport, is on Tahiti near Papeete. Tahiti was originally settled by Polynesians between 300 and 800 AD. They represent about 70% of the island's population, with the rest made up of Europeans, Chinese, and those of mixed heritage. The island was part of the Kingdom of Tahiti until its annexation by France in 1880, when it was proclaimed a colony of France, and the inhabitants became French citizens. French is the only official language, although the Tahitian language (Reo Tahiti) is widely spoken.
An upset traveler shared this in a review "Stay away from Tahiti and the surrounding islands if you're planning on being able to get there and back on schedule. We're stranded there due to a gov't worker strike. Extra nights are all at our own expense, we're in day 5 of the strike and no ability to get out, get home. It's like we're being held hostage by the french unions. The only int'l airport for any of these islands is here in Tahiti. So if you were planning on a vacation -- don't go to French Polynesia. If you check Google, you'll see they strike constantly. This is the 2nd in 2 months, stranding air passengers. There are so many strikes when you Google it,...you get the idea. Go somewhere NOT french."
Colleen Kerins says"Glad I had trip insurance! Karma will get them for sure. They have a cool $15k if my money that was never sent to the 3rd party for the bookings. I feel for anyone that can’t get their money back. they removed my original review so here it is again :) :) :)"
Mike says"Custom Tahiti went out of business 4 days prior our departure. They cashed our check happily a month before and then canceled all our confirmed reservations 24h before departure to our wedding in Bora Bora. The money they got back from the canceled reservation "blank" . Chances that we see our money are little. The fact how they handled the situation ("the business just simply failed") is unacceptable. They not just "blank", they also destroyed our dream of getting married in Bora Bora. We are going to continue researching this and file as many claims as possible till we see results. Edit: had to change my post because trustpilot will not let me write what really happen with my money. Guess someone at custom tahiti is still reading these post and complaining about facts that actually happen."
Jesse Calloway says"My wife and I had trip planned for our 20th anniversary; we contacted Custom Tahiti Travel for this once in a lifetime opportunity; we put a $3500 deposit down in June of 2018; my wife and I were in Scotland when we got the news that the company closed shop and was filing for bankruptcy; as of the moment, we have gotten our deposit back because we used a credit card, but there is a caveat; the refund is pending review with our cc company. I spoke with their attorney and all I was told to do was go to our cc company and advise them of what happened and they will provide a letter if needed; we got the letter but it was more of a too bad, so sad type of letter. we were contacted by the company they were doing business with in Tahiti advising us that they still had our reservations but can I trust them; you don't hold a reservation without getting money and now, we are not planning anything until the dispute with the cc is resolved. Thanks Custom Tahiti; karma is gonna catch you big time."
Linde Bianchino says"Operations suspended. Payments accepted and no refunds issued through travel agency or law office. Dreams crushed, two years of planning, trust instilled in the company, no explanations, no response to where the money is. The company apologizes, but has not proposed a resolution."
