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!

We took a jeep tour. We signed up for a tour with a girl who had a sign on the dock. She charged $40 for a three hour tour with two other couples. This was not A/C but there was a good breeze so it didn't matter. Our guide, Tamara, spoke good English and was willing to accept US dollars.... More

This is not a full on 4WD Tour as it circles the mainland, in saying that we both thoroughly enjoyed the tour, our guide George was most interesting, helpful & very knowledgeable. We would recommend as you visit some great off road locations with fantastic views. We also enjoyed the history lesson about Bora Bora (aka Vavau) & learning about... More

Really fun day out. Tam what a lovely lady and looked after us. Very accommodating and knowledgeable about her hometown and more. Beautiful views around the island and meet some locals along the way.

I can't say enough good about this company. They were excellent to work with from start to finish. We were a group of 40 people and they picked us up at our resort, went over and above to entertain us, fed us and delivered us back to the resort, two times. It was our daughters wedding week in Bora Bora.... More

Boarded a 20 yr. old truck with vertical seating (4 people on each side facing each other). The PA system was broken, the diesel exhaust was making us cough, and there were frequent stalling. Juliano swerved off the road attempting to ascend a cannon viewing site, knocking 3 passengers to the floor of the truck. This didnot deter further attempts.... More

Jdango was funny, knowledgeable and told us traditions from back in his grandparents days, he bought us a local nut on the side of the road and shared with us so we could experience the taste of his fruits. This tour is a must when visiting Bora Bora. Jdango was the best, heard other tour guides from the same company... More

This was a spectacular tour. Our guide, Tamara, grew up in Bora Bora and gave us a wonderful tour of the island and a lot of background about the people and the culture. Of course, the views were amazing but equally important to me was learning about the people and the culture on the island. She picked us up from... More
