Truly Unique
sloppy123, 27-09-2022
What a great tour we had yesterday morning. A genuine insight into the real Tahiti and Polynesian life style.
Met some lovely fellow travellers and our guide Tracey was the best. Great to meet a Blighty fellow on the other side of the world. Would definitely recommend.
Amazing in every way...

The perfect tour for this perfect place. Tracey's expansive knowledge, exquisite personality and outstanding accommodation was one of the best experiences I've had on any guided tour anywhere in the world. The Village de Orofara with local Tiki sculpture masters and famous sacred river eels; the Tahiti Art Maohi local handmade textiles factory and shop; gorgeous Vaimahutu Falls and Faarumai Waterfall with fresh bananas and papaya outside; the multitude of black sand beaches, blow holes and more... A very full half day trip around the east coast of Tahiti Nui rich with stories, history and endless photo ops. What an incredible day and tour guide.
Exhilarating

Comfortable, informative tour. Highlights was the history of and visit to a leper colony, Tracey gave an insight into how the colony was established and how it operates now. The visit to the waterfall was unbelievable and her information on the local community gave us a great insight into Tahitian life
An absolute must-do if you're visiting Tahiti!!

If you're visiting the island for any amount of time, you must take this tour!! I would recommend booking it earlier on in your trip as it's a great introduction to the island. Tracey, the tour guide, was the best part. She's very well connected with others on the island and shares all the local spots, including some stops such as the textile factory and wood carver's homes that any normal tourist wouldn't be able to see or access. The experience exceeded expectations and the photos uploaded don't do it any justice. Don't think and just book it!
Amazing personalized tour!

Traveled in a small immaculately clean and comfortable van. Tour guide and owner, Tracey, is very knowledgeable and shares her information clearly! This tour does the usual stops but excels in going to many “local” spots, interacting with the wonderful Tahiti people and getting an amazing feeling for the Island. Tracey makes each person comfortable and imparts lots of fascinating information in a joyful and personally friendly manner. She immediately “adopts” you and makes sure this tour and your stay is the best experience possible!!!
Highly, highly recommended!!
