The driver/guide was very professional, very friendly, very knowledgeable, always thinking to offer to take a picture of us with the surroundings. We even received free coconuts in one place and free fruits in another place, he dropped by a street seller and got everything for us for free!

In half a day you can learn a lot about the island and thanks to Joseph (Joe) we learnt so many stories better than any holiday guide out there. Enjoyable and reliable!

From looking at reviews, I think it is luck of the draw as to who your guide is for the day with Vavau as to whether you will have a great time. The fact is that there is not a lot to the island of Bora Bora aside from the stunning views at various vantage points, so the fun of... More

We really had a great time doing this tour with our guide Joseph who was amazing. We got to know better the Vetaipe island and its history and the culture of people living there. Our guide took us to the best spots offering breath taking view of Bora Bora lagoon. Joseph helped us to take great pictures. Highly recommend the... More

Having previously done the 4x4 tour with Tupuna on two occasions, this one was disappointing. We had Juliano as a driver/guide and although he was friendly and knowledgeable, he made the experience a little boring and I found him quite patronising at times. With Tupuna the entire tour was energetic and fun. The scenic points visited with Vavau cannot compare... More

Joseph told us a lot about the history of French Polynesia and Bora Bora while thrilling us going up sketchy roads into the mountains to see incredible views of this amazing island. Joseph is a lot of fun, great guide!

My husband and I did the 4x4 island tour with Hiro. We saw the best sights on the Island, Hiro provided cultural background for all the locations, we stopped to see how to make and tie pareos and we stopped at a local stand where he provided us with fresh coconut juice and to try local fruits. This tour was... More

We did a tour of the island of Bora Bora. The tour circled the island, took us to some scenic points, visited a canon that was deployed there in WW2, and ended by taking us a place where they demonstrated how a pareo was made using traditional methods. It isn't akin to an African safari with wild animals, and though... More
