This trip was AWESOME. One our favorites our whole time in French Polynesia. We were picked up and started to drive towards sunset while our guide, George, gave us information about the islands and history. Then we were able to take pictures and George was a great photographer and took photos of all the couples there were only three of us so it was a very intimate trip. After that - off to a very small little island where we heard more history and waited for the stars. We were all given iPads with Sky Map to see what constellations were up. There was also refills on champagne and snacks on the boat! Such a special trip!

George took some beautiful sunset pics for us. His laugh is really funny! I didn't expect it but I left feeling smarter! Very informative and fun. Champagne under the stars in Bora Bora. Need I say more? :-
This tour was amazing! George is your guide and he is very nice, knowledgeable and funny. We were surprised to find out we were the only ones on the tour which was perfect. Worth every penny in my opinion. You get free drinks alcoholic or non which ever you prefer, sushi, and amazing views!
This was easily the best excursion we went on during our time in Bora Bora. First, we were taken out to the middle of the lagoon to sip some champagne and enjoy the beautiful sunset while our guide, George, shared interesting information about Bora Bora with us before serenading us with a Ukelele and traditional Polynesian songs! The sunset was absolutely stunning, and George took some fantastic photos of us with our camera. Also, it was a nice surprise that we were the only people on the boat, as we did not expect a private tour.
After the sun went down, we were taken to a small clearing at the top of an uninhabited Motu islet where lawn chairs, lights, and a sand and stone representation of the Polynesian islands were set up for our presentation. We were given more champagne and then served food that they had prepared appetizers, tuna rolls, california rolls, tuna tartar, etc.. all made with delicious fresh fish, and then the lanterns were all turned off so the starry sky could give us the show of a lifetime.
Then George began his presentation of how Polynesians populated the Pacific by navigating by the stars. Underneath the brilliant night sky, George's presentation was informative, eye-opening and surreal all at once.
Our guide, George, was absolutely FANTASTIC!! He was not just immensely knowledgeable about Bora Bora and Polynesian history and culture in general, but he was really funny!! He seems like a naturally up-beat and energetic person and, between his serenades, jokes and informative stories, he provided us with what was easily the most memorable excursion of our entire trip.
George was amazing - definitely recommend
it was awesome! we ended up being the only ones on the trip but we are sure it would be great with a group as well. george and christian took fantastic care of us! it ended up being much more than we had expected! we thought it would just be stargazing but somehow we also got a sunset cruise and had bubbles AND a platter of delicious snacks to enjoy - as well as george serenading us and taking the best pictures of us and the sunset. THEN we made it to the top of a hill a private motu once the sun went down and he explained the stars and navigation. it blew our minds! highly recommend. it gave us an opportunity to better understand the history of the area and was just spectacular!
FUN TOUR, WE GOT A SUNSET VIEW BEFORE THE STARGAZING. LEARNED ALOT ABOUT THE ISLAND AND THE STARS.
This was a nice tour but didn't focus on stargazing. For the stargazing portion, we were provided tablets that identified the constellations in overhead sky.
