“Family Friendly Fun Tour”
Reviewed May 15, 2010

We recently took a Mai Tour (self drive tour) around Rarotonga. We chose this type of tour (with the MP3 Player) as we have an 11 month old baby and we had hired a car. The beauty with the MP3 tour was that we plugged the player into our portable speaker and sat the speaker on the dash board so we could all listen to the commentary together. We then followed the tour (which was easy) at our leisure (and in the comfort of our car - since it was raining). Since we had the baby, we could easily pause the tour, change nappies, stop for a bottle etc and then pick up where we left of. We didn't have to stress about holding up other guests.

The tour itself was informative, fun and entertaining. We saw and experienced many interesting island highlights - all of which we would have missed if we didn't go on this tour. For $25 (NZ) the tour was an absolute bargain and we would highly recommend it to other visitors.
