The Circle Island tour booked through Carnival Legend 18-day South Pacific cruise took us by tour bus up Mount Rotui to the Le Belvedere Lookout for breathtaking views of Cooks Bay and Opunohu Bay. Despite the very cloudy day, the views were breathtaking. Some of the windy roads up the mountain were a bit daunting, but the driver was very... More

On a recent trip to Moorea we did the circle island drive and tiki village theatre tour. Our tour guide was fantastic with a great sense of humour and a wealth of local knowledge he was only too willing to share. The sights on the island are very beautiful with water the most clear and blue I have ever seen.... More

Our tour was actually a bus tour around the island taking in various views (including Belvedere lookout point overlooking Cook and Opunohu Bays, and La Ora, overlooking wonderful sand beaches) as well as a visit a local village and an art gallery and a viewing of an ancient sacred site (a "marae". The overall impression gained was of a nice... More

This tour was with "Albert's Tours" booked with Carnival Cruise shore tours. We were in a comfortable mini bus and Albert was actually our driver. To be honest the tour is basically a 2.5 hour drive around the island with a 40 min stop at the Tiki Village & 20 min stop at the Pineapple factory shop. It was interesting... More

Coming off a cruise ship we were looking for something to do on our recent visit to Tahiti. Many tour operators were stationed outside the Information Centre, and instead of going by air-conditioned bus, we chose a circle island tour in one of the local buses or "le Truck". This was listed as 4 hours for $US30 per person. We... More

We did the mini-bus tour around the island and found it to be the most boring worst tour we ever experienced. The Tour could have been done in one hour or less, and that might have helped make it a better experience. Our Driver was very unprofessional. He offered off color humor that was not well received and his commentary... More

I read tripadvisor reviews of this half day Moorea Circle Island Tour before my trip. Reviews appeared to be two extreme from "boring, disappointed" to "excellent, excited". I was puzzled why there were such two extreme opinions. Now after my own visit, I think I understand why. In fact there are two different routes: 1. Bus Tour: Use bus (or... More

We saw many beautiful things on this tour. Albert's son was our driver/guide and was very informative; however, time was wasted by stopping at their jewelry store.
