Visited Vallee de la Vanille on our jet ski excursion to Taha'a. The tour was very informative and conducted in English so we were able to enjoy all aspects. Rather rural by our values, but the product is world renowned. Would definitely recommend.

One of those experiences you remember in life. They showed us the plantation, the techniques used to harvest and the ones to preserve the beans that you can even buy at their shop. A great tour!!

This is an excellent day trip when staying at Taha’a resort. Staff and guide are friendly and shop not overpriced.

This was our first time touring a vanilla farm and it was very informative. We visited it while on a 4WD tour which also included Champon Pearl Farm. We picked up some vanilla pods that we are looking forward to use.

Interesting talk and demonstration on how vanilla is grown and processed. Here flowers need to be hand pollinated. Many vanilla product to purchase and we purchased the vanilla cream which help wounds heal and worked very good on some coral scratches.
