Know More about this tour

After pickup from your hotel, set out to explore the island of Tahiti, traveling by air-conditioned coach with an experienced local guide. Your first stop will be on the west coast where you will visit the famous Marae Arahurahu, a relgious site dedicated to the ancient gods where important ceremonies used to take place.

For manicured landscapes, visit the Vaipahi Garden, where you can wander around a tree-shaded wonderland of waterfalls, ponds and colorful tropical flowers. Your guide can help you identify the plant life as you take in this botanical gem.

Visit Venus Point, located on Matavai Bay. The stop got its name from Captain James Cook, who observed the 1769 transit of Venus from this point as part of his work for the Royal Society. As you walk around the black-sand beach, note the monument that commemorates Cook's work here.

  • Beautiful scenery but that was about it.
    Lacked organisation.

  • The only redeeming grace of this excursion was the conversation with the driver

  • Tour guide Cookie was excellent and very knowledgeable. Unfortunately it rained however we were able can to see all the sights listed. The group was small, just 7 and given this we had a pleasant afternoon.

  • Good tour, learned a lot about Tahiti.

  • Tour comprehensive--Cookie is excellent tour guide

  • We were disappointed because we assumed Tahiti had more to offer. The tour guide was fine, we made few stops but would had like to see beaches. We could had rented a car and drive around the island ourselves.

  • Cookie was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable and with a great personality.

  • Our cruise ship docked in Papeete and we were advised to wait outside the Tahiti Nui Office. As this was a Sunday, the office was shut and no one to confirm our presence. However, our air conditioned coach arrived and as we had the e vouchers Cookie our driver and guide and comedian let us on. Whilst the tour took us all the way round the coast ot the main part of the island, the view point was not exactly up the mountain. Cookie was an entertaining driver who was very informative. Good value for money when compared with cruise ship prices.

  • The tour was good with a good driver but Tahiti was a disappointment as it appeared rundown and had seen better days.

  • Our guide was very good and give us lots of info on the island. Would highly recommend this tour.
