Our guide is very friendly and professional. He's also well acknowledged about Tahiti history and gave us many interest facts about the islands. We had a very good time with him. It's worthy.

A bit of bubbly, a few small snacks, amazing live music and great history of the Polynesian culture equals a fantastic voyage! Our guides were fun and kept our interests up for 3 hours. It was a bit cloudy that evening so the iPad star gazer app was a great way for us to see the stars that were used for the Polynesian people to navigate.

You get a little bit of everything: boat, sunset, star gazing, live music, snacks, drinks, and a bit of history with a great story teller. If you aren't familiar with constellations, they have tablets to help guide your way through the night sky.

The entire team was great but Jango was a standout.

I just came back from trip to Botra Bora.
I went with my daughter. We booked the stargazer excursion.
It was excellent. Our trip guides were outstanding, especially Jingo!
You will learn a lot about the history of navigation by the stars, and if your lucky and it's a clear night, be enchanted with the stars.and constellations.
The boat ride with champagne was fun.
Dress with shoes for walking up some very big steps, on the motu island where you will go to see the stars.

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!

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.
