Traveler Tips

Great way to quickly see the island if you don’t rent a car.
However, if you want to see more landscape and take more photos, the day or afternoon tours are probably better.
We would highly recommend this tour and operator, and far more cost effective than equivalent trips organised via the cruise line.

Great tour, beautiful views, interesting history
Allison_Y, Oct 2021
Alex was an amazing tour guide and took us to see a side of Bora Bora that we did not know very much about. The scenic views were gorgeous, the history was interesting and the glimpse into the artists methods for dyeing the beautiful sarongs/pareo was fascinating. 10/10 great tour and highly recommended.
Recommended tour!!!
Brenda_S, Jul 2022
It was an excellent tour, we were impressed with our tour guide Heiki who explained to us Bora Bora history in Spanish and showed us beautiful places…
A must do in Bora Bora
Robert_P, Jul 2022
Fabulous tour! Fantastic guide who was very informative!! The views were spectacular and saw cannons from World War 2. A must see!
East and exciting way to see the entire main island
Grace_K, Jul 2022
We wanted to explore the entire main island of Bora Bora and this was the best tour to see everything in a few hours. We got to see amazing views, old historical sites, downtown, various landmarks, and even stopped briefly to learn how the local artisans hand dye scarves. Our tour guide and driver, Moana, was hilarious and kept us laughing the whole ride. 👍👍
Great tour!!
Harpreet_T, Jan 2022
Alex was amazing. He taught us a lot about the main island. He drove us around and up the entire main island.
Bora Bora 4WD drive tour to be remembered!
Denise_D, Mar 2022
This tour introduced us to some of the culture and history of Bora Bora. Matai was a fabulous guide! He showed us the palm leaves used for thatched roofs, the drying of coconut for oil processing in Tahiti, some beautiful high-up views of turquoise waters and lovely surrounding islands, and the making of pareos (sarongs). He was patient while I chose 5 pareos for myself and my daughters, and had a great sense of humour throughout the tour.
A Nice Time Around the Island
Tory_B, May 2022
We had a lovely time on this trip. Our guide, a really nice fellow, took us all over the island. He was so friendly, and he spoke perfect English. I really enjoyed this trip.
Wow what a tour
Bobby_H, Dec 2020
This tour was great the guide was very informative about the island. Gave us knowledge about places we have drove by but never knew anything about. He took some good pictures of the wife and myself with bora bora sunset in the back drop. Would tell everyone a must trip to take while in bora bora. The cocktails at the end was great wish that I would have gotten the name of the drink very smooth.
Awesome tour
Natalie_F, Mar 2020

Nice evening ride
Bobby_H, Nov 2020
Did find out some stuff that I didn’t know. The pictures that we took where great. The guide was very nice to us. The ride was smooth for most of the trip.
Donald_K, Apr 2022
It was essentially only a drive on the road that circles the island. Two short detours into interior that did not get very high to see the beauty of the lagoon. Had a young tour guide who was nice but pretty much just drove.
Average tour
revkeithjoan, Apr 2022
This was an average tour it’s limited input from the guide. Thankfully we had done other tours in which we learned a lot about the islands. Check out other tours in Bora Bora
Perfect way to see the main island
MaddySalo, Apr 2022
Our guide Mata’i was amazing! He showed us around the island, shared personal stories with us, and took us to his favorite ice cream shop. It was a great trip all around!
Great 3 hr overview of the island!!!
Alissa_H, Mar 2022
Matu our guide was phenomenal! He was funny, very caring and gave us so much information about the island.
Such fun!
Polly_H, Apr 2022
We hung on for dear life as our guide made the drive up the steep roads to the top of the island, but the views were completely worth the "white knuckle" climb! So fun to see the "stripes" of blue water and a distant view of the reef.
Very dissatisfied, no communication
David_B, Aug 2022
Tour was canceled. We were not informed by anyone had the hotel call the local tour, supposed to have rebooked for the following morning, again no show and no communication
Late pick up. The tour...
Ji_W, Jul 2022
Late pick up. The tour itself is very mediocre- basically just driving around the island with two brief photo stops and 1 shopping stop. Stick to water based tours.
Insightful and entertaining.
GeraldG_C, Feb 2021
Our guide Alex was the most memorable part of our tour. He was not only knowledgeable but very passionate about Bora Bora and it’s unique history.
