The tour itself was fine but the roads were horrendous. Sometimes it looked like we were going straight up. Beautiful scenery at the top.
Alex was a fantastic guide and extremely knowledgable. He took us all around the island, seeing the bunkers, guns, foliage, educating us about the plants, and taking us to scenic vistas. However, the description on Viator did not exactly match up with what the tour accomplished. The Viator description mentioned making learning to make manoi (or coconut) oil and fragrances. Our tour took us to a spot where local women made pareos- still fascinating, but a big departure from the description- would have loved to know exactly what we signed up for. This review is more about the company's description and NOT the tour guide, as Alex was AWESOME!
There is no better way to see Bora Bora when visiting on a cruise than this 4x4 tour. This off road tour gives you all the sights and delights of the island's culture, history, flora, and fauna. You will discover the ancient temples of the great Tahitian seafaring society built around 1000 A.D, along with their accompanying legends. Explore WWII sites built by Americans during their friendly taking of the island in 1942.
Tour around the island to see breathtaking lookout points only accessible by 4x4. Faanui Valley is host to small fruit plantations. Pareu, a locally-owned family workshop, showcases how they make beautiful tie-dye Sarongs. You will learn how to make coconut oil and taste local fruits before completing your tour and returning to port.
Book early as this sells out and beats the cruise tours for price and excitement.
