Overview

Discover Easter Island’s most spectacular moai statues on a small-group tour that’s limited to eight travelers. See the biggest and most impressive remnants of the ancient Easter Island civilization, from the fallen statues of the southwest to the towering monuments on the island’s eastern edge. At each site, learn the stories behind the statues, exploring what’s known—and what remains a mystery—about Easter Island moai. For your convenience, this tour of Easter Island includes pickup and drop-off at all island hotels.
  • Tour Easter Island moai with a local guide
  • Visit dramatic ancient sites on the islands south and east sides
  • Learn about local history and culture
  • Small group ensures personal service
  • Pickup and drop-off at Easter Island hotels
Begin your day with pickup from your hotel. Make sure you are carrying your pre-purchased national park ticket (not included). Meet your guide, then settle into the air-conditioned minivan to head south. 
Make your first stop at Ahu Huri A Urenga, a single statue with four hands aligned to the sunrise at winter solstice. Head farther south to the Ahu Vinapu, where skillful engineering suggests contact with the Incas, then to the coastal area of Hanga Poukura, home to rough lava rock formations and several statues mysteriously buried in a line, with only the backs visible.
Take a break for lunch (not included), before heading for Rano Raraku. This crater functioned as a kind of factory where most of the island's statues were carved. Since the workers stopped, the hundreds of statues left behind haven't moved.
The final stop is Ahu Tongariki, the island's biggest ahu with 15 mighty moais. Your day ends with drop-off back at your hotel. This tour does not pick up at cruise ship terminals.

Sofia Fernandez was the guide/driver and probably the best day tour guide that I have ever had. She guided non-stop for over 8 hours and filled us with the history and magic of the island. She had stories and information and answers to all our question. The van was nice and the small group allowed us an easy pace. I was picked up on time at my hotel. Yamileth at Easter Island travel answered all my questions via e-mail before my trip. Take this tour with the North and West full-day and you will have seen all the best sites. This was a great experience that I will never forget.

It was the perfect way to start our time in Easter Island. We learned a LOT and saw a few places we wouldn't have made it to on our own. Highly recommend!

Excellent tour with a knowledgeable guide - Sofia!! It would be very possible to rent a car or ATV and see the sites on your own, but hearing the history, legends and stories of the Island were very, very worth the price. Everything was perfect and well worth the cost!
