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!

This is a nice tour of the island of Bora Bora. It is in a 4x4 up and down the side of mountains. You spend a lot of time getting in and out of the 4x4 to see the view from up on a hill and it is breathtaking. Our guide, Rapa Nui, was knowledgable and helpful with giving tips... More

We had a great experience with our tour guide Franck. He made us laugh from beginning to end while making sure we had all of the historical knowledge of the island. We took a morning tour before the sun got too hot. We stopped at various off-road areas that provided spectacular views from up high! A great time was had... More

While there really wasn't as much off-roading as I would have liked, and certainly less than what is indicated, it was a pleasant adventure. We happened to have the tour all to ourselves so we got to have the whole bottle of wine and saw all of the island. The sunset experience was fantastic. Our guide took the time to... More

This experience was just as the description said. Our tour guide Rapa Nui was great, very accommodating and knowledgeable. The Land Rover worked out great with 3 couples in total. We saw beautiful outlooks and the description of the little town and the beauty and history of the island couldn't have been better.

Our driver "Frank" did an excellent job of describing the history of the island during the tour. We drove up a hill to have a great view of the sunset over the water and sipped champagne while Frank played the guitar and sang for us. This trip also took us around the entire main island perimeter. He stopped to point... More

This jeep trip was wonderful as you got to see the entire island and go high into the interiors for great sights and pictures. But our favorite part of the trip was our tour guide, Frank. He was fun and charming and knowledgeable. We had to wait for some others and he pulled out his guitar and sang several songs... More

A special thanks to Rapa Nui for being exceptionally friendly and kind to us on your tour! He gave us some wonderful recommendations for food and other tours around Bora Bora. Our tour circled the island, noting the white sandy beach, an old US military cannon and ammunition bunker, Marlon Brando's old home, and a nice shopping spot that taught... More

This was our first attraction on the island of Bora Bora. I am glad we had a great driver/host named JULIANO. a tough little truck picked us up and took us to three specific vantage points for AMAZING views and scenery/photo ops. Juliano told us history of the island and shared some laughs. All around a great time for a... More

This was a nice tour in and around Bora Bora with stunning views. Our guide, Hiro, was informative and even drove us by his own house.
