We can’t recommend KavaKava Tours enough. Spent 2 full days, first with Sebastian “In Search of the Maoi” and then Tokerau on the Birdman Cult tour.

We look for local knowledge and experience when we travel, and KavaKava delivered at an exceptional level.

Both our guides were really nice people, which made the day exceptionally pleasant. They were so engaging, we loved discussing with them the various theories about events on Rapa Nui. We gained invaluable insight from oral traditions as well as western archaeology and theorising.

Thankyou to KavaKava for making our experience one of our life highlights.

The most amazing tour - I had two full days - with Soledad as my guide. She is simply the best guide I ever had and with no hesitation wholheartedly recommend to anyone willing to learn as much as possible about Rapa Nui to spend a day or two as I did with her.

Muchas gracias!
