Our guide was a twenty-something woman who has a Masters degree in the field and is working on a second Masters in a related field. We travelled around mist of the two islands that make up Huahine and she was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We definitely recommend this tour.

My wife and I visited Huahine on our honeymoon in November of 2013. This is the first review I have ever written, which should be a testament to how much I enjoyed this tour. Owner/operator Paul and I made quick friends at the start of the tour. My wife and I spent about 5 days total on huahine, and this... More

Nice tour around the island. We made numerous stops including an ancient temple where the guide provided us a detailed overview of the history and culture of the early peoples of the island. We then stopped at an ancient fish trap that is still being used today, and then stopped at a small creek to see the large blue-eyed eels... More

Our first tour was canceled so we booked this company through the hotel. This was, by far, the better choice. Maeva was our guide and he was excellent. He gave the tour in both English and French but never skipped anything. We saw so much of the sacred sights on the island and most of the history including one museum.... More

Manava was a truly outstanding tour guide. In fact, my wife remarked afterwards that he is the "Vin Scully of tour guides," which is a high compliment. We booked this tour as a cruise ship excursion. Entertaining and educational. A great tour. Highly recommended.

We had read about this tour when planning our sailing trip and were not disappointed. Maneva was an excellent guide - he was passionate in his explanations about the history as well as the culture of the Polynesian islands. We particularly appreciated how he shared the most recent theories on the settlement of the islands based on current research. This... More

Maneva our guide was excellent and the half day tour we did was not only a great introduction to the island, it's history etc but with plenty of additional commentary on the political situation, the economic situation etc. Other reviews provide a good overview so no point in repetition. Worth doing and we'd recommend to a friend.
