What You Can Expect

Bora Bora 4WD Tour

Bora Bora 4WD tour

After pickup from your Bora Bora hotel or Vaitape Pier at your chosen departure time, board the 4WD vehicle, perfect for scaling any mountain or rough track on the volcanic island. The truck has a shaded roof and open sides for optimal viewing throughout your 3.5-hour tour.

Your expert guide circles the entire island — an approximate 20-mile (32-km) route around Bora Bora. Stop at a lookout point at East Matira for exceptional views of the sparkling lagoon bordered by lush green mountainsides. Follow up with more vistas from the Faanui Canon lookout, where you’ll find evidence left behind by US troops after WWII.

When the 4x4 truck reaches the Faanui Valley, watch artisans demonstrate how to create tie-dye sarongs and make coconut oil, and sample tropical fruits at a small plantation. Your last stop is the Amanahune Bay lookout, which features more stunning views along with rock formations that were once inside the volcanic caldera of Bora Bora. 

If you selected the sunset tour, sip a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and listen to live local music while watching the sun slip past the horizon.

Your circle-island 4WD tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

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.

Prior to arrival at Bora Bora we were emailed advice that the tour would depart from Vaitape Pier at 1.00pm. We arrived in plenty of time and began looking around for where Vavau 4X4 Adventures set off from. We found such a vehicle in a car park adjacent to the pier and we were informed by a Vavau Representative present to wait back at the pier driveway.
Later, as the time was well past 1.00pm, we again went to the car park adjacent to the pier, only to find 2 Vavau 4X4 Adventures vehicles already loaded with tourists and were were told there was a double booking! After a phone call by the Vavau Representative, we were informed that the boss would come and take the 4 of us on the tour himself. We were most appreciative of the change to an air conditioned vehicle and a very friendly and informative guide Patrick, but as it turned out, we had already lost at least 30 minutes of our tour time and this was not made up as we returned to the ship early, thus loosing more tour time still!
Patrick was an excellent driver and tour guide and he tried his best to make up for our inconvenience. We travelled around the whole island and stopped at beautiful vantage points overlooking the local areas and resorts.
