Owner description: 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 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...

Our tour guide was Hiro on this four hour tour. I had emailed Vavau a few days before our scheduled tour to tell them I was having a back issue. Hiro immediately got back to me and promised to put me in the front with him so I would be more comfortable. He did not disappoint me and was good... More

We took the half day afternoon tour with Etienne, although we always met up with the other groups led be Hiro and Rapa, Our guide was friendly and informative and assured us only the best drivers dared go up the three very steep roads to see the great views and the WW!! canon. The trip wasn't so much bumpy as... More

We picked up this tour at the Visitor Centre and enjoyed about 2.5 hrs with two other couples. The fact that there was only six of us provided for a comfortable tour. Our guide, Hiro, was excellent. Some of the roads to the viewpoints were a bit dicey, but once there the views were certainly worth the drive. Hiro provided... More

We had Hiro (super Hero:)) as our guide. We had 4 couples in the back of the Land Rover which was a squeeze. Basically this tour is about going up very steep roads which are private and takes you to some high vantage points to get some excellent views and for photos while Hiro talked about the history of the...

We are a family of middle aged parents with three young adult children and went on a tour of the island with Rafa Nui. He was a pleasure to ride with - fun, thoughtful and informative. Rafa was always patient and pleasant. We learned a lot about Bora Bora. Maururu, Rafa!
