After your choice of morning, afternoon or early evening pickup from Vaitape Pier or your Bora Bora hotel, start your 4WD tour of the island with your professional guide.
Travel approximately 20 miles (32 km) all the way around the island to reach amazing lookout points where you can soak in views of turquoise ocean and lush green hills.
Travel to the East Matira lookout to admire a great perspective on the shimmering lagoon. Then continue to Faanui Canon lookout to see canons left behind by US troops after WWII. Your guide explains the American presence in Bora Bora during the war and the mission known as Operation Bobcat.
In Faanui Valley, visit a small workshop where artisans make beautiful tie-dye sarongs and coconut oil. After watching the production process, taste delicious tropical fruits at a small fruit plantation.
Next, head to the Amanahune Bay lookout where you can examine rock formations that were once inside of the caldera of Bora Bora, a volcanic island formed after volcanic eruptions long ago.
During your 4-hr tour, complete a full circle around the island by open-sided 4WD, perfect for scaling any mountain or rough track on the tropical island. Be sure to bring your camera to capture photos of the many breathtaking views as well as locations made famous in the 1962 Marlon Brando movie Mutiny on the Bounty.
If you choose the sunset tour, your 4WD stops at a couple of viewpoints before heading to the perfect lookout to watch the sunset. Sip a provided glass of bubbly and listen to live local music during a magical sunset experience on this stunning island.
After your 4-hour tour, your guide returns you to your hotel.

We did the sunset tour with champagne toast. Teama was our tour guide and he was extremely personable, friendly, funny, and a great musician! He was also knowledgeable about the history of Polynesia. The total tour was about 1.5. He took us up to two lookouts for pictures, the second lookout for the sunset where he played ukelele and sang. My wife is still singing the Tahitian song about Bora Bora! She plays guitar/ukelele and trying to find the music on the internet, but has not been able too. Teama if you see this review and have the chords/lyrics she would love to have them!
In my experience with guided tours, the guides make or break the experience. Teama definitely delivered a romantic evening for us and made this an unforgettable night. If your looking for something romantic to do on Bora Bora, this is it. However, if you want to see more landscape and take more photos, the day or afternoon tours are probably better.
Very good tour around the island, amazing views from the top of the mountain. It was a great tour
Saw textile printing, WWII cannon, magnificent views. Very satisfied!
Teama was our guide. His personal touch to this tour made our honeymoon great. Beautiful sunset, nice surprise, and I can not say anything but great about him. He sang songs and played ukulele while driving in the same time his 4WD. His technique was quite something.!!!
Great tour - Santiago is a great guide. Bora Bora is a beautiful island and you need to see it up from up high to see just how beautiful. Our guide new so much about the island and the culture. Seeing the war monument was one of the main reasons we took the tour and he got us up there. Seeing how the people lived and learning what is important to them - gardens and families! You don't want to miss this one!
Our young guides were lots of fun and took us to some roads that were rough, steep, but spectacular views. We had sparkling wine for the sunset, along with a ukele serenade by our guides. We really had to hold on going up and down hills, so a little more physical than we expected.
Loved our guide and learned a lot about this beautiful island.
This was a great tour and intro to Bora Bora it was so much fun and there are plenty of postcard photo spots! Highly recommended!
Got to see some beautiful views and US history on this trip.
Little touristy at the end but this is how the economy is on the island but still well worth it.
We unfortunately were unable to make this excursion. A N/A choice should be available if the star system is a required field.
