Bora Bora’s beauty is breathtaking, and Vavau 4×4 Adventures is the very best way to take it all in. Our off-road vehicles are comfortable and safe, and will transport you to Bora Bora’s most secluded spots. Experienced multi-lingual guides share stories of our island’s history from ancient legends of Polynesian gods and chiefs to the lure of Hollywood filmmakers and seafaring adventure seekers. Historic World War II canons remind of us the social and economic impacts, and international influences on our island home. Stroll along Matira’s sunny shore, voted as one of the world’s top ten beaches by Tripadvisor. Enjoy the cool breezes at Bora Bora’s highest vantage points and marvel at the world renown lagoon bordered by the Motus — offshore isles afloat in a turquoise paradise.There’s no better way to come to know Bora Bora than by spending time with our family at Vavau 4×4 Adventures. Come enjoy the beauty of our island home. Ia Orana!

Joe met us at the dock when we arrived in the harbor. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He often asked if he could take pictures of us at each place. There were two other couples with us and Joe helped us all feel comfortable together with his humor. The tour itself was a little short, (But it IS a... More

Although I live here I had never done the 4x4 tour of the Island. I recently experienced it with Vavau and Hiro was out guide. My objective was to take some landscape photos and I certainly was not disapointed! The tour was great, we stopped at different places that I would not have been able to get to! I will... More

We enjoyed an afternoon touring Bora Bora by 4x4 with Hero. It was an enjoyable tour. We saw a lot of the island and we learned more of the history of Bora Bora. One of the best parts of the tour was that they took us high up on the mountain where we have a beautiful view of the island... More

We went on the 4x4 adventure on a whim and were definitely very pleased. Rapa was very informative and so much fun to be around. He showed us beautiful sights, told us a lot about French Polynesian history, and stopped with us at various points to try fruit. We stopped at a fruit stand to try fresh coconut water, bananas,...

We are a family of six (four adults/two teens), and booked the Vavau 4x4 island tour over the internet two months prior to sailing. We had such a great time touring the island and our guide Rapa was so much fun and informative too! We even stopped by Rapa's home where one of his children came out with banana's picked... More

This was definitely one of the highlights of our vacation in French Polynesia. We booked on Expedia when in Bora Bora & didn't know what to expect really. But we found everything was well planned, pick up was very well organised once we reached the main island. Our guide Rapanui was fantastic! He had a great knowledge of the best... More

WOW. When we visit a place we want to experience the life and views with the 'locals', not just the tourists type stuff. Hiro from the Vavau adventures was a great guide. He had all the local connections and the shortcuts with a bit of excitement. His confidence and love for sharing his place with us was admirable and exciting... More

What a great way to see & experience the amazing island of Bora Bora. The guides are friendly & fun. The tour takes you around the entire island & up on the mountainside for the most spectacular views of the breathtaking waters of Bora Bora. Definitely a must-do; the tour doesn't take up too much time & you'll be so... More

Having much experience with tours of all sorts in French Polynesia, I can officially say that this is the best. It was by happenstance that we met Rapa Nui coming out of a shop the day before we were to leave Bora Bora and he stopped to talk with us. We just happened to mention that we were thinking about...
