Board your air-conditioned motor coach for a day of discovery, starting with a city tour of Papeete, stopping at the sacred stone temple Marae Arahurahu, considered to be one of the region’s most significant ancient temples.
Venture through the districts of Punaauia, Paea and the birthplace of Tahiti, Mataiea, before a visit to the Vaipahi Gardens and Waterfall where you will immerse yourself completely in the natural beauty for which the island is renowned. Visit the colonial home built by the English writer Robert Keibel, to enjoy some reviving refreshments before embarking on a tour of the immaculate gardens.
You’ll stop at the Mara’a fern grotto caves, once visited and documented by Captain Cook, and later pay a visit to Fisherman’s Point and the Museum of Tahiti and Her Islands, set in a lagoon-side coconut grove with a picturesque view of Moorea.
