Expert advisors of Tahiti & Her Islands

 

Frédéric

 
Frédéric has been working with Yestahiti for over 10 years and has traveled the Society and Tuamotu islands, as well as the Marquesas and the Australs. He carefully reviews the best deals daily in order to offer you the best possible rates for any given itinerary. Ideas for tours and discovery are no secret to him and he always analyzes his clients’ specific requests ensuring their stay is memorable.
 
His favorite islands: Huahine et Raivavae
 
His first advice: “Get off the beaten tracks.
Bora Bora, the Pearl of the Pacific, remains a must-see in your itinerary for first time visitors. However with so many secluded islands you will leave with fond memories of outstanding sceneries and friendly human encounters.
The local people are so friendly and love to introduce you to the authentic Polynesia. Let me help you book a vacation that will be exactly what you expect!’’
 
 

Mahearani

Further to her studies in visual communication, Mahearani first followed her passion for the islands and French Polynesia whilst working on the promotion of the Tahiti cultured pearl and the “Maison de la Perle” in Tahiti. She joined the team of Yestahiti in early 2011 and is now in charge of managing our website. Her love for images and unique lights found around our islands definitely reflects the various contents of our website.
 
Her favorite islands:
Moorea, given her proximity of Tahiti (30 minutes away by ferry boat), is ideal to relax after a flight. It is the perfect scenic place to practice stand-up paddle board and have a “motu” islet picnic with friends while facing Haapiti district. Rangiroa has remained genuine. It is like Bora Bora 20 years ago. It hosts an incredible lagoon and passes making it a special place for scuba diving. Besides, fans of the famous Tahiti black pearl will have the opportunity to visit the largest pearl farm of French Polynesia.
 
Her advice:
Bear in mind that Tahiti and Her Islands are not just blue lagoons and white sandy beaches. Make the most of the Polynesian “art of living”:
• Discover local handicraft
• Be mesmerized by the Polynesian culture (dance, songs and costumes)
• Share a traditional Polynesian meal with flavors that are surprising and delicious.
I promise, these are the best moments along with the friendly Tahitian greeting!
 

Ariimana

He is a fan of his islands and his culture. He joined the team in 2005. Better than anyone, he is an expert in the knowledge of the islands’ various accommodation possibilities and discovery tracks. He is the perfect example of our friendly Polynesian people whether you are in touch with him by email, Skype or on the phone!
 
His favorite islands: Tahiti and Raiatea
 
“Upon arrival, stay a few days on the main island of Tahiti before heading to the other islands. Discover the mythical wave of Teahupoo or do an introductory surf course on the east coast. A few surf schools are open to everyone. Go across the island with a guide, hiking or on a 4WD safari trip and admire breathtaking sceneries and swim in the magnificent cascades.
After dusk, be mesmerized by beautiful traditional dancing and singing shows and discover the strength of our ma’ohi culture.”
 

Ruta

Ruta is our latest member of the group! Passionate by her culture especially traditional dancing and painting), she could tell you her favourites Polynesian myths and legends for hours!
She will be able to guide you, give you good advices and organise for you an unforgettable trip to French Polynesia!
 
Her favorite islands: Moorea and Raiatea
 
Before heading to the islands, how about a short stop in Tahiti to swim with dolphins, to explore by 4WD its lush valleys and groves and to sip a fresh cocktail while watching its magnificent sunset at the end of the day.
If Tahiti is too “modern” for you, consider the ferry to visit Tahiti’s sister island, Moorea! A charming sandy island ideal for sunbath breaks near the beautiful turquoises lagoons. Tahiti and her islands, is now an affordable destination to almost any budget, whether you come with your family, your lover or alone! Come and share the lifestyle of the islands by experiencing its warmth and genuine welcome! I only have one piece of advice to give you: relax and make the most of every single moment!

A tourism entity in French Polynesia


Our travel agency founders literally created tourism in Tahiti and Her Islands nearly 50 years ago.
Nowadays, our teams welcome more than half of visitors to French Polynesia every year and book a quarter of the stays occurring in the various islands of the country.
Our teams are made of passionate experts, most of them native from the various islands of French Polynesia and are pleased to share their country with visitors.

A unique expertise, even in Tahiti


Our booking, marketing, product development teams and travel advisors visit the lodging facilities and service providers once or twice a year, not only in the main islands but also in the most remote areas which sometimes shelter a little corner of paradise. Detailed summary reports are prepared further to any inspection and are shared on a database allowing all our staff to benefit from accurate and up-to-date information. We therefore hold unique knowledge and information of all our products.

Guaranteeing you the best rates and special offers

 
Our position as the leader on the Tahitian market allows us to benefit from the best rates and booking conditions.
Thanks to our annual sales volume, we will often offer our clients exclusive advantages such as excursions, activities and additional services.
We systematically look for the best available offers and the best possible value for every single client’s request.
We won’t hesitate to recommend changes in your itinerary in order to match your budget more accurately.
We do not print a yearly catalog since we are constantly informed of the best deals in the hotels and immediately include them in our proposals.

Totally flexible package deals

 
Numerous packages are offered through Yestahiti and other travel agencies. However, every travel project to Tahiti and Her Islands is specific. The sample itineraries presented on our website benefit from a long experience and we know they will bring satisfaction to our clients.
Nevertheless, with these suggestions, we make every effort to carefully understand our clients’ expectations and to suggest the best options and alternatives meeting their demands. In all our contact forms we invite you to fully express your expectations, what you like and dislike! In the end, you choose the trip made especially for you that is totally unique.

A search for hidden paradise locations and traveling off the beaten trackS


Our local roots and daily involvement in Polynesia’s life and culture prompt us to suggest using more local accommodation and stays on islands which you may never have heard of. We know that these will bring more authentic and original travel experiences outside of the usual modern world you live in. The variety of islands and possibilities of travel allow us to prepare trips with the fragrance of Tahiti’s yesteryear. Some islands are off the track and have remained identical to the last century. Their inhabitants are usually friendlier and will help you experience the magic of Tahiti and Her Islands.

Our operational teams (chauffeurs, guides, hostesses) are committed to you at any step of your trip. From the traditional Polynesian greeting upon arrival at the airport and upon departure, they will ensure that your stay remains perfect.

Thanks a lot for the organization of our honeymoon. Our trip to Bora-Bora, Tahaa, Rangiroa and FAKARAVA was unforgettable.
Everything went perfectly: the recommended hotels were perfect, the pension at Fakarava was great and the activities we have chosen extra.
No stress for a perfect organization. A team that listens to our needs and answer quickly to every question. In short, we already recommend Yestahiti to all our friends and relatives.

Overall the tour was well organized and met our expectations.
The Information about the destination, the route recommendations and the choice of accommodation offered by our advisorwere good.
The general organization of your stay (welcome at the airport, transfers, domestic flights) was excellent and we would recommend Yestahiti to your friends and relations.

The accommodations, the excursions and activities met our expectations.

We recommend Tahiti and its islands and we intend to come back to French Polynesia in the next three years.

Hello Frederic,
 
I have finally arrived back home and found some time to contact you again.
 
I wish to express my gratitude for your efforts and the flawless execution of my itinerary.
Every part of the journey that was organized by your agency was without any remarks.
I am very pleased with all three of my accommodations and strongly recommend them for any budget oriented traveler.
All hosts went beyond my expectations to meet my needs in the short time I spent in each of the pensions.
 
Even though I booked it myself, the Sarah Nui hotel in Papeete was a very pleasant surprise in terms of comfort, facilities and staff hospitality.
I will refrain from commenting about the Kaveka hotel due to some unpleasant circumstances during my stay.
 
Since other customers might find the following information useful, I will share my experience with the mobile operators in FP:
Vini does not offer prepaid SIM cards with both voice and data. They have separate cards for talking and browsing which was not useful for me.
Vodafone do offer combined voice+data cards however their service is only available on Tahiti and Moorea. All other nearby islands are Vini-only.
 
Once again, thank you for a job well done and a happy customer. I will make sure anyone I know to contact your agency first if they are interested in that region.

Information about the
destination, route recommendations, choice of accommodation offered by our consultant were good, as the organization at the arrival and during the trip.
We recommend Yestahiti. Our contact Frederic was listening to us and gave us perfect advises - no problem to call him on skype. It was easy to arrange everything.
 
The quality of accommodation was good overall.
Very good bedding in all pensions.
The dinner was very good at pension Tautiare while the breakfast was very disappointing (baguette and jam industrial - missing at least one fruit).
At Fakarava, Havaiki is not a pension but rather a charm hotel. good bedding but a very poor soundproofing in the panoramic bungalow. If you have some noisy neighbors, you have gained your experience !!! In spite of that the place is very good and Joachim's sons are friendly. The tour to the South Pass is fine.
Pension Cecile - Life at the pension is different when Cecile is there! Very nice, she settled down with the tourists.
 
The two activities we made are really a must: the tour at the south pass of fakarava with Havaiki and Reef Island at Ranguiroa with Leon (Paati excursion) - the place, the food on the motu, snorkeling and traditionnal crafts - everything was perfect.
Please notice that the motu tour at Maupiti is disappointing, no interest.
Diving: a lot
 
We recommend Tahiti even if it is not a budget destination -
People are very nice, they do not hesitate to inform us or to help us.
The scenic beauty of the underwater world...

A big thank you to Ariimana for helping us organize this trip that we dreamed of for a long time.
The welcome and great at each airport was perfect. Each transfer was perfectly organized. It was very important to enjoy our trip without any trouble.

The only downsides were the international flights with Air Tahiti Nui: on the flight Paris - Los Angeles: the flight was delayed 24 hours due to a technical problem. On the flight Los Angeles - Papeete wed had given two separate places while we were on honeymoon. On the flight Papeete - Paris: we sat among the last row of business class; a menu was distributed to us, but every meal we ordered was unavailable. When it is systematic, that becomes really annoying, especially when you paid a place in business class...

We will recommend Borabora.com to our friends. We were well advised. The choice of hotels and tours totally met our expectations. Ariimana, our counselor, was always ready to advise us and make the right answer to our questions; but mostly he organized us a trip that has perfectly matched our expectations.

Concerning the hotels, from the PEARL in Moorea or Bora Bora to the TAHAA Resort we could enjoy the comfortable, pleasant and intimate atmosphere of beautiful resorts with great service and a very friendly staff. Only downside, in each hotel the WIFI access was not free and not very good.

Finally for each organized excursions, we had the pleasure to meet friendly guides and Tahiti is truly a destination that we recommend.

My
review about the accommodation:
-Raiatea Sunset Lodge: Superb
-Pension Raivavae tama resort: Excellent cuisine, housing perfect, a good address
-Pension Papahani in Maupiti: very good
-Hotel Kavaka to Moorea: always a good place to stay
-Tubuai Pension Veteanui: Minimum Housing  but good for meals
-Rurutu Pension Temarama: Good

Information about the destination, route recommendations, choice of accommodation offered by Councillor were good and the overall organization of your stay was good or excellent.

We particularly enjoyed the excellent reactivity to our questions asked by email; the quality of response and dialogue, flexibility on applications.

We are very pleased with our experience and the good preparation made with your team has contributed to that satisfaction.

French Polynesia is really beautiful even though we only got a small vision. We loved the warm welcome of an always smiling people.
 
The tourist infrastructure should be more developped to discover more islands. The offers are often quite similar to see the same sites.
