Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked this tour at the last minute but glad I did. Saw so much of Bora Bora that I wouldn't have seen on my own. Guide was friendly and a good driver. Great option if you only have limited time visiting Bora Bora.

A great tour with locals. They taught us about the history and even the original way of saying hello in Tahitian (I think it was Aroha or arona? laorna is not the original way apparently)

We has an amazing time on the full day lagoon tour with lunch and culture on the family’s motu! Our hosts were Manu and his cousin who were not only very funny, but also very knowledgeable about the area. They took us to the best places to snorkel and see sharks, stingrays, lots of colorful fish and the most beautiful coral. The bbq lunch with our feet in the water was perfect, and we appreciated the family opening up their piece of heaven for us all to experience. I got to make my own tropical pareo for cheaper than what shops sell them for. This is a family-run business and I appreciated making sure our money went back to locals. The boat, equipment and everything included was good quality.

The Combo tour was amazing!
Our guides Manu and Riu were very knowledgable and friendly.
They took us to the most beautiful places.
We saw whales, dolphins, stingrays, sharks and tons of colorful fish.
The 4x4 tour was informative and they took us to a couple high points on the island for some panoramic photos
It is an absolute MUST DO in Bora Bora!

We had a wonderful time -- the lagoon tour with snorkeling was fantastic! Our guides knew all the good spots for seeing reef sharks, rays, and turtles, and their explanations in both French and English were thorough. A nice bonus was their singing, with ukele and drum accompaniment, as we moved along. The lagoon tour included a delicious lunch on a private island, where we sat at picnic tables in the shallow water. The 4X4 tour of the entire island was equally wonderful, and we were driven to several high lookout points and WWII cannon emplacements. We watched a demonstration of tie-dying pareos, and afterward we were shown several different ways to wear them.

The motu is fantastic, I could have spent at least one day there, but I was given just a couple of hours. Such a small time spent there was, in part, due to the boat captain being late to pick me up and to the boat itself stalling several times during the journey to get to the islet.
