We booked this 4x4 excursion through our Hilton hotel and would book it again. Our friendly and funny guide George "of the Jungle" had great knowledge of the island's history and demonstrated the medicinal value of the native plants. We visited the hilltop US cannons placed during WWII, circled the island, visited a local family pareo/sarong business--made a pareo too,... More

We picked this tour based on TA reviews and it was a great one. This is a great way to spend a morning and see the land-side of Bora Bora, learn some of it's history and get some great elevated photo opportunities. There is no way that you could get a rental car or scooter up any of the hills... More

This was the highlight of our Honeymoon trip in Bora Bora. They were very accommodating in picking us up in town after deciding to do a little shopping as well as dropping us off at Bloody Mary's for dinner afterwards. We were lucky enough to be the only people on the tour that night which made it even more romantic.... More

This review is old but due. I was in Bora Bora for my 35th Birthday. We did the 4x4 tour and Hiro was our guide. He was soooooooo informative about the island and made sure that we were able to get the best pictures. Hiro gave us so much information about the island that when we went snorkeling and the... More

Very nice and informative tour showing the beautiful main-island of Bora-Bora. Also with some "off-road" to reach some view-points or an old canon.

Had fun time on this 4x4 safari tour of bora bora main island. Went uphill on some dangerous roads but the splendid views from top of the hills more than made up for the ride! Got wonderful pictures on this tour. Made a short stop for pareo and coconut demonstration. Tour guide was great! Time well spent!

My husband and I had a super-fun tour in a Jeep open-air 4X4 with George around the Island. What made the trip was not only the stunning sights but George's love and knowledge of his Island. He was so funny, informative and sang along the way so you couldn't help having a terrific time. We were given samples of papaya... More

4hr roundtrip jeep tour in a classic windowless Land Rover Defender was the right amount of time and just what we needed as a mini relief activity from bungalow and beach paradise. Juliano, our driver, was informative, pleasant, and a safe driver. He even provided water and a moist towelette. We were glad we passed on exploring the island with... More

While staying in Bora Bora, we decided to do the jeep island tour of the area. Juliano was our guide and he did a GREAT job of teaching us about the culture of Bora Bora as well as taking us to some mountain areas for picture taking which was breathtaking. Juliano is very personable and funny, as well as very... More
