3-Hour Rarotonga Island Discovery Tour

    What to Expect
    Your tour begins as soon as all guests have been picked up from their accommodation. Your tour guide will then give you an overview (in English) of the island and the many points of interest you will see along the way. You’ll enjoy a light refreshment and convenient stop where you will have the opportunity to purchase locally crafted gifts & souvenirs. Here your guide will give you a demonstration on the Cook Islands Tree of Life, the coconut tree and explain its many uses. Your sightseeing tour continues on to a number of historical sites including one of the first limestone churches built on the island in the 1800s, the Garden of the Seven Canoes at Avana Passage, as well as Black Rock - a volcanic boulder on the edge of the lagoon, traditionally believed to be the departure point of spirits to Avaiki (the afterlife). Along the way you will catch a glimpse of the Needle Lookout which is a volcanic outcrop that marks the centre of the island and is one of its highest points. Plantations of citrus, bananas, tapioca, papaya and taro and other crops line your route on this informative scenic drive. The Island Discovery Tour is a great way to see the many points of interest on the island before heading out on your own and also gives you an insight on our history, culture, traditions and our people which we look forward to sharing with you.

    Highly recommend doing this tour when you first arrive at the island. It takes you around the whole island, both sea and inland to the mountains, giving you a good idea of what areas to explore during your stay. Tour finished with coconut cracking and...More

    What a great way to see the island. Mac our guide was awesome. We did this tour on the first day, so at least we knew what to see on the island for the rest of our stay. Thanks Mac
