We took a full day tour with Sebastián. It was brilliant! The Guide Sebastián is from Rapa Nui and so was able to combine the factual history aspects of the island with enthusiasm and knowledge of the current culture. He knew everything about each of the sites we visited. On top of that, he is involved with the restoration and preservation on the island so gave us more background knowledge on the places we visited. He answered every question we had and showed us photos and pictures on a kindle as we went along (it was great to use the kindle rather than a phone or tablet so the sun didn't created a glare - just an indication that he'd actually thought about the guest experience rather than just going through the motions of his usual tour). The tour We got picked up from our hotel in a 4x4 at 9am and travelled around the island for the day. It's worth taking some snacks for the car as it's a pretty full on tour from 9am until 3pm. Take water and sunscreen as well. We told Sebastián that we only had one day on the island and he immediately adapted the tour to cover the sites he thought would be most important and most interesting. We were very grateful for this as we would have missed out on visiting Orongo otherwise. We started at a restored traditional village. We were the first ones there - even before the staff. I was a bit skeptical of this part of the tour but it laid the foundations for the entire day so was important to see - for me, that's the difference between having a professional tour guide and doing a DIY tour. We then visited Rano Raraku, Ahu Tongariki, Anakena Beach, Ahu Nau Nau and Orongo (in that order). See my photos for which site is which. We had plenty of time at each of them - not rushed and not bored / waiting around either. For me, the highlight was Rano Raraku and it was great to be one of the first people there. The customer service KavaKava tours were great when booking the tour. Alejandra is very responsive and helpful. We asked Sebastián to take some photos of us during our tour and he was able to send these on within about 5 minutes of us asking when we got home! Summary Our experience on Easter Island was fantastic. If you are wondering whether to get a private tour then I would recommend doing so and I cannot recommend KavaKava tours enough. They were brilliant!

My guide, Sebastian, did an outstanding job explaining the culture, history and anthropology of the island and of there Rapa Nui people. Rapa Nui himself, his passion for his people - on both a personal and a scholarly level - made every stop a fascinating window into the story of the island. I can't recommend KavaKava highly enough.

Our time on Easter Island was short, but because we did this full-day tour [and the sunrise tour the next morning] with Nicolas we felt we really got to see and know the island. He's an enthusiastic, knowledgable and agreeable guide. He even dropped us off at the airport after we did the sunrise tour.

Tokerau was an enthusiastic Rapa Nui guide who is passionate about his island and the Rapa Nui traditions. He picked us up at the airport and spent the day showing us the highlights of the island. We were here only one day and this was a great overview.

We booked our private tour for our first day in Rapa Nui from Italy and the staff has been really kind and available to clarify all the details via email. We had the excursion with Sebastiàn who is the best guide we have ever met!!! He his a native Rapa Nui guy with a deep knowledge of his land and his culture, he has been very exhaustive in his explanations and super available in answering our questions and satisfy our requests. The choice to have this tour the first day has been a good one, because the other days we have been able to visit the island by ourself but knowing a lot of things thanks to Sebastiàn. I strongly recommend a private tour with Kava Kava!
