This tour isis an expensive day, but worth it all. Tanoe takes you around to several amazing snorkel sights on his luxurious boat. Drinks on ice, feeding tropical fish,swimming with sharks, feeding sting rays, perfect start to the day. After all that swimming the stop at the private beach with bbq and lunch table in the water was just right.... More

Tanoa's private tour was exceptional. It is the best way to explore the island and experience its many highlights in a luxurious manner and at your own pace. The all day tour included swimming with manta's, rays and sharks; snorkeling in several "aquariums" and the highlight was Tanoa preparing a delicious meal at his private beach setting. The meal alone... More

Our family went on a private tour with Tanoa in early August and had a fantastic time snorkeling and learning about the local marine life in the Bora-Bora Lagoon. John was a gracious host, and was obviously very connected to life on in the island and in the water. It was pretty amazing seeing him interact underwater with the marine... More

My family and I had a wonderful day with Tanoa on our recent visit to Bora Bora. The boat is well stocked with snorkeling equipment, towels, and beverages to make the day comfortable. We snorkeled in the lagoon and then headed to the ocean, where we were able to stand amongst the sting rays and black-finned sharks, and even pet... More

Tanoa has lived in Bora Bora his whole life - his family has been here for over 7 generations. If you want to TRUE VIP Bora Bora experience - this is the one to book! Based on a recommendation from our hotel, we booked Tanoa for a full day (pricey - but totally worth it!!!!). He picked us up on... More

Make it 17 for 17 in the "excellent" review category for Tanoa. This was the highlight of our trip. If you want to see the highlights of the island, learn a bit about the local culture and enjoy a genuine experience from a top notch guide, this is your tour. I initially balked at the price tag for a full-day... More

I booked Tanoa's private tour after reading many of the great comments on tripadvisor I have to agree with everyone else's reviews and say that Tanoa's private tour was the best tour we did while visiting the French Polynesian islands. This tour was such an amazing experience and something that I will never forget. Tanoa was so accommodating to all... More

We had an amazing time with Tanoa on his private tour. He has lived there forever so he knows everything about the island. He really makes sure you have a great time. He took us to a few places to swim with sharks and stingray. He tops it off with lunch in the water at his own private motu. It... More
