Edith and Bill of Taura'a Hotel booked us two days of island touring with Larry of Kanga Nui tours. Larry is a real character who knows his stuff. He offers a variety of exhaustive (and exhausting) and fun trips around this fascinating island. It was a pleasure spending time with him...even if he did practically starve us into submission on...

I stayed at Easter Island only one day and I could not have picked a better place than Tauraa hotel. Owners Edith and Bill are lovely people; they were extremely helpful. I was very interested in the history of the island so I booked Tauraa's full day private tour. My guide Christina was very enthusiastic and responsive to all my... More

You will learn more about the history of Rapid Nui than you ever imagined. Do yourself a huge favor and use Taura tours as your guide. Larry will take you around the island and by the end of the day you will have become an expert on the history of Rapi Nui.

We did the full day tour with this operator. Our guide was Larry and we had a fantastic time. Larry is an Australian that has lived here a long time. He was involved in the filming of the movie "Rapa Nui" in the early nineties. He is really passionate about Easter Island and has lots of information, stories, history to... More

We stayed at the Taura'a Hotel & took their full day tour to the Quarry & much more. The guide, Larry is from Oz, so we could pretty much understand everything (!). Ok, so the sights & views are going to be spectacular but the extra knowledge & stories from the guide made it better. You really do get a... More

Based on the good reviews we went on the South Coast full day tour. And what a let down. The guide Vaiheri (?) was a native islander but she acted more as a driver than a guide. We had to ask her to tell us the name of the places we went with her - and after a full day... More
