Alex half-day 4 WD Guided tour We had a great time! Alex was a great guide and gave us not only lots of historical information about Bora-Bora but also, and most importantly to us, about his family heritage and traditions being born in Bora-Bora. In addition to all of this information, Alex was very funny and made us very comfortable during the entire tour. Thanks Alex! We highly recommend this tour with Alex and his company. John & Edi

Bill_s, Aug 2023
The tour to the most scenic areas of Bora Bora were incredible. The guides were very knowledgeable and professional.
Good tour to get info about Bora Bora
Margaret_B, Aug 2023
We took this tour to kill some time before an afternoon flight. The tour took us around the entire island. There were some nice views and exciting 4x4 drives up very steep roads. There isn't really much to see in Bora Bora on land, but it was a good way to get to know the island. The best part of the tour was the information provided by the guide. A lot of history and local culture. I would recommend this tour. Only negative and that we never received a confirmation of the pickup time, so we ended up getting only a minute notice. However, the company was very flexible and waited for us and accommodate our luggage.
A really great experience

Our guide Manu did good job. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He took us through the stunning meandering mountain scenery and explained in detail the origins and background of Bora Bora. The trail was a bit rough but the views were worth every penny.
Exceptional overview of Bora Bora

I loved every minute of this tour! It was great to see the whole island with our wonderfully knowledgeable guide Manu. He shared his love for this place and Polynesian history and culture. I found this your to be exceptionally informative and charming.
Great Views And Great History
Willie_B, July 2023
This was a wonderful experience, as you get a chance not only to view spectacular landscape from hillside but you also get a chance to get in-depth history lesson about the growth of the many islands in Bora Bora.
Nice and comfortable way to see the island.
Sallis_Y, July 2023
Nice way to see the island. Bora bora is not a big. 2 of the stops up the hill you really need a 4WD vehicle to get up there. Without renting a car or biking this is a good way to get a tour around the island. Our guides were very attentive and overall it was a very nice half day.
Excellent! Perfect! Fun!
Sheryl_H, July 2023
Phenomenal tour! Moana was an AWESOME guide! We learned a lot, and he answered all the questions we had. The view points he took us to were breathtaking, and the history element with WWII and the cannons was very interesting to see and hear about. Highly recommended!
A great tour with an excellent guide.
Martin_W, July 2023
