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.

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.

-Pension Papahani in Maupiti: very good

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.

Regarding Frederick, who organized our trip, I have to say he was perfect.
Fast, reliable, listening to my wishes. No surprises during our trip. what asking more ? Air Tahiti and Air Tahiti Nui are very good airlines.
Our favorite islands were Maupiti, Rangiroa, Moorea and Tikehau. We will not return to Taha'a even if I think the hotel is worth a visit: the Vahine Island with its beauty, perfect bungalows, his kindness and intimacy and of course the gastronomy...
Bora Bora is still a must with its lagoon, hotels and this wonderful mountain. But the atmosphere is not the same as on the other islands. People are less open to each other.
The intercontinental hotels are great qualities.

Responses to the poll:

1 / How do you rate our Information about the destination, route recommendations, choice of accommodation offered by your advisor? Good, but we already had a pretty clear idea. The hotels were very good except perhaps in Maupiti - the Kuriri - is a bit limited anyway. I think it's better to be on the main island.

2 / How do you rate the overall organization of your stay (home to the airport, transfers, domestic flights)?
Excellent reception on arrival but not very cheerful but everything went without any problems or errors with the reservation. It was perfect. No one came to see us for the check out, I hoped  to see Frédéric ;-).

3 / Would you recommend Yestahiti to your friends and relations? yes, without hesitation.

4 / How do you rate the quality of your accommodation compared to your expectations? See answer 1 of the Kuriri Maupiti. It does not match the site of the board, the white sand beach !! White yes but impractical and comfort is really limited, an impossible stream of water to really wash, they are nice and we ate well, it's light but good. I would not recommend it anyway.
Tkehau village is good for bungalows and location, food and atmosphere means.
Otherwise, perfect, completely perfect. Special mention for the pension Cécile, location, hospitality, atmosphere, meals, everything is there.

5 / How do you rate the tours and activities during your stay? Excellent. Excursions very well taken there each time. Safety on board vessels can surprise sometimes, especially with a child, but welcome and great service.

6 / I recommend without hesitation Polynesia, The island of Tahiti less but the rest, without hesitation. It's a magical beauty, Polynesians are very nice, a little shy sometimes but not for long! We’d love to come back to your islands, anyway, we were all and even. My 8 year old son cried in hope therefore that's a first. We must save now to come back !!

Dear Ariimana

We are now already 2 weeks back from our wonderful holidays in French Polynesia. First we like to say thank you for your very professional service to us. Every single booking you made was done in time and to our full satisfaction. The sailing with Dreamyacht Charter (skipper Apera and crew Viginie) was 100% what we expected. Also with the cruise on Aranui 3 we were more than happy to collect this extraordinary voyage to our bag of memories.

We wish you all the best for the future and thank you again.

Greetings from a winterly but warm South Africa

Excellent information about the destination: .
Very sound recommendations for routes. Accurate for people that do not know your country!

Choice of accommodation: some surprises including a bad one in Huahine "PENSION FARE MAEVA" (poorly maintained, no welcome, poor restoration); cozy, comfortable, friendly. A negative point for the stay at Nuku Hiva and PENSION HE E TAI INN, the manager of the pension, ROSE, being a bit overwhelmed by the management of its pension.
 

General organization of your stay: Excellent organization: No problem, all aircraft transfers were good, the documents received at the Papeete airport were clear and allowed us to move from one island to another with ease. At the end of our stay, Polynesian airports had no secrets for us thanks to the kindness and smiles of all Polynesians encountered!
 

We recommend YesTahiti our friends, and that's what has already been done!

Thank you again for your attention, your guidance in your choice tips and suggestions.
 

Our stay was very good, we did some great meetings. Many Polynesian passionate about their country, their culture, crafts, safeguarding their heritage, passengers like us all surprised by so many cultural richness, botanical or geographical (especially in the Marquesas).
 

You should know reach out to others, do not hesitate to knock on doors, listening to the locals talk about their past, their faith, their hope, and especially their desire to pass on their knowledge and pride of living on their island. This is actually our feelings at the end of our three week tour of eight islands visited.

In Maupiti, don't choose the small garden bungalow at the Pension Papahani which is not as good as the other accommodations, very happily put us in a better place if it would have spoiled the stay (too small for 2, no terrace. ..)
- Would you recommend Tahiti and its islands to your friends and relations? Yes
