What You Can Expect

Tahiti Island Tour Including Venus Point, Taharaa View Point and Vaipahi Gardens

Vaipahi Garden, Tahiti

Explore the natural wonders of Tahiti, the heart of the South Pacific, on this half-day afternoon tour of the island. Following hotel pickup in Papeete, travel aboard an air-conditioned coach to scenic highlights narrated by your knowledgeable guide.

Your first stop will be on the west coast where you will visit the famous Marae Arahurahu, a religious site dedicated to the ancient gods where important ceremonies used to take place. 

For manicured landscapes, your next stop is the Vaipahi Garden where you can wander around a tree-shaded wonderland of waterfalls, ponds and colorful tropical flowers. Your guide can help you identify the plant life as you take in this botanical gem. 

Next visit Venus Point, located on a black-sand beach at Matavai Bay. Note the Victorian-era lighthouse and a monument that commemorates Captain James Cook, who observed the 1769 transit of Venus here during his work for the Royal Society.

Your coach journeys along scenic roads to the Arahoho Blowhole, where you’re treated to a natural show of seawater that spouts skyward during large ocean swells. Stroll the strip of shoreline along this popular surfing spot before boarding the coach.

Afterwards, visit Taharaa View Point for breathtaking panoramic views over the island before being returned to your hotel in Papeete where your tour ends.

Really great tour, loved it. A lot has changed since our last trip 30 years ago but such a wonderful tour just the same. Our tour guide Sam was very knowledgeable. We visited many places of interest and visited the ancient sacrificial place called the Marae where we got a pic with the largest Tiki there. Highly recommend this tour!

Again I was the only person not speaking French and again the Tour Guide always told me in English what I was looking at. A great Tour covering the Island. Very interesting and something any visitor to Papeete should do.

We did this tour the day we arrived in Papeete so we had the morning to relax then got to see the whole island in 4 hours. Sam was our tour guide and he was so nice and personable. He grew up on the island and gave a lot of information and was funny. We were not able to see some sites due to the rain but he made up for it by taking us to the local supermarket Champion to get souvenirs and food for breakfast. Sam made the tour Great.
