Great fun. Very informative guides and pickup was timely. Highly recommend this excursion.
I had a fantastic time! The boat captain and my driver Alex were the best! I highly recommend this tour.
The Lagoon Tour was amazing, the guides were fantastic. Snorkelling with reef sharks and stingrays was something I never imagined doing, the visibility in the water was the best i have ever experienced.
the island X tour was again incredible, the people in Bora Bora are just so lovely, I highly recommend this for every one, young and old.

A great way to see what Bora Bora has to offer, all in one day. The lagoon trip was wonderful - that water is unreal, the 2 boat operators were great fun and talented musicians was not expecting to be serenaded! and the 3 stops were each unique and exciting. The land portion was also wonderful - great views and very informative.
This tour was fantastic! We had two different tour guides and they were both fun, energetic and informative. Tamara was fantastic. I'd choose her tour anyday! Her energy and enthusiasm was spectacular. Thanks!
Everything ran very smoothly and was more than we expected. George our guide on the 4WD was amazing- very funny, interesting and informative. The lagoon cruise was beautiful and again well done!
Because we were late getting off the ship, we had a private tour led by Juliano. He took us all around the island to places the cruise ship tours couldn't get to. We have great pictures from atop the mountains. We had an opportunity to see tie-dyeing and see how the women and men use this piece of material as part of their daily attire. The tour was supposed to last 2 hours however, Juliano gave us a 3 plus tour. We had a great time and saw much of Bora Bora.

Fabulous day and tour! Our guide in the morning was so attentive, informative and funny. His knowledge and personal attachment to the island made this tour the best.
Swimming in the lagoon in the afternoon was awesome!
Lunch at Bloody Mary's the hot spot on the island was delicious and not the usual tourist trap
Although it was a rainy day, it was a nice tour. We did only the lagoon Cruise. Due too the weather conditions our 4WD tour was cancelled. Refund between tour operator and viator was arranged without any problem.
Highly recommend this tour!
Lagoon tour - we got to go to 3 different spots. Saw sharks, stingrays and fish.They gave us plenty of time for snorkelling. Also provided snorkel gear if needed.
4WD tour - super friendly and knowledgable tour guide: Jango. We drove past a food truck and he even bought us a doughnut to try.
A fabulous tour! We saw the island from mountain peaks that gave spectacular views! Let it be noted that lunch is at Bloody Mary's. A great place, lots of fun. The afternoon of snorkeling was nothing short of fabulous!!! We were taken to an area with sting rays and sharks. What an adventure!!! The water is brilliant turquoise and warm and like no other snorkeling! AWESOME!!!
Etienne is a very nice guy and brought us to his house to show how he lives. It was very interesting and we would recommand this every time to all our friends !!
My husband and I had a great time on the tour, Hiro our 4x4 guide was so welcoming and fun. We got to tour the island in a cool Defender and stopped at some spectacular view points.
Had a fabulous trip. Met by tour with our names on a board which was helpful as coming off a cruise ship there were heaps of tours touted. Left from pier by boat to swimming with sharks then the large manta rays then further to the others and finally the coral garden where our guide led us on a snorkelling tour. I was a bit tired from swimming by the end so best to let them know if you're not a strong swimmer. But amazing day in warm water although overcast we did get very burnt. Our fault so wear a tshirt or coverup with sunscreen. Then we were dropped a jetty at the Bloody Mary resturent famous from South Pacific movie and plenty of time for lunch before being taken on our four wheel drive around the island by Jango? He was just so enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about his country that we could not help but love the afternoon. What an amazing day we had! Highly recommend it!
we had an amazing day. Firstly we were picked up in Vaitape by Chris for a short drive to pick up a few more people, then it was onto the jetty where more people waited. We were divided into 3 boats and then we were off. First stop was the coral garden where we snorkeled with some lovely fish. Chris fed some fish there so they were swarming around us. From here we went onto the site for the stingrays and black tip reef sharks. This was absolutely amazing. We all climbed into the water which was only about waist deep, Chris was handing out fish pieces that we put on the snout of the stingray and it would stay with you. Black tip reef sharks were swimming in and around us without a care in the world. Word got out that a Manta Ray was a little distance away so we all very quickly got back on board and headed to the site. Most of us were in the water very quickly to see this beautiful majestic creature. We had an older gentleman on board who didn't swim very well so Chris got him all fixed up with a life jacket and floatation device and pullled him along so he didn't miss out. Back on board for the next stop which was outside the reef to swim with black tip reef sharks and Lemon sharks. Very exciting and a lot of fun, the atmosphere on board was great. Had lunch on Motu and then we headed back by boat to be picked up for the 4x4 adventure. Rapa is such a character, we had 6 on the tour and we all had a great time. All our questions were answered, we asked questions about Bloody Marys and we stopped there for a drink. Further down the road if he saw something on the side of the road that he thought was interesting, he would pull over and tell us about it. The lookouts were amazing, the roads up not great but the views spectacular. Where they make the print the Pareos sarongs we were given a gift of a woven basket and hat, lovely. Over all we had a great day and would recommend to any one.
great tour in particular the first part. the snorkeling with the sharks has been wonderful.
the lunch at the bloody mary has been also fantastic.
Loved the snorkeling. Swimming with stingrays and sharks was amazing. Rapa was great as our land tour guide.
We drove in a 4X4 up some steep hills that overlooked the reef. It was a gorgeous view. We saw the WWII remnants of guns and a bunker. It was scary and bumpy, but it was fun. The only thing I didn't' t like was that the drive/guide spoke so softly that it was hard to hear at times. I wished he had added more details, too about Bora Bora.
The 4WD was awesome, and our guide knew so much. I doubt that I have ever had such a personable and knowledgeable guide. Unfortunately, the snorkeling portion was a big disappointment. I don't think the boat driver said more than a couple sentences about ANYTHING we were doing, seeing, or experiencing.
Booking through Viator was not very easy, they never provided the info that we needed and then when they did it was incorrect, we were lucky that our hotel concierge was able to check the details for us. The 4x4 tour was lackluster, it was nice to see the island however the guide did not provide many details of the island and really only stopped at the touristy places to shop. The lagoon cruise and snorkeling was amazing, our tour guide Sam was great to work with and very helpful, this was quite possibly the best snorkeling that I have ever done. Swimming with the sharks black tip reef sharks and lemon sharks was just amazing, as was the stingrays. The fish and the spot where we were could not have been better. I would certainly recommend the lagoon cruise to anyone.
This tour was just average. They say that you have a choice for restaurants but they just drop you at Bloody Mary's for an hour and a half where you purchase your own food. They give you an hour and a half due to the service taking that long to get you a beer and a burger. It is very hot inside and not a place most people would choose to sit and sweat for an hour and a half. The 4x4 part of the tour was again very hot due to the type of vehicle. The views from the stops very very nice but the ride is a bit rough in some spots where you are holding on tight and the older people in our group were having trouble. The snorkel spots where nice but we had been to them the one of them the day before on a trip we booked off the dock for half the price which we all agreed was a better tour. There were many tour operators at the dock with better tours and better prices.
