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.

END OF OUR DREAM ! Ruta
First a big thank you for your guidance and your selection , your choice of islands, pensions.
 Everything went well ! Overall, we are excited about our trip, my son and myself. While some islands have been our preference ,we enjoyed the diversity of archipelagos of French Polynesia.
 
Contacts were excellent , transfers without reproach, on the contrary, as we discovered the Polynesian warm and generous character ! almost everywhere, everyone is " quartered " to guide us , help us, to discover all the wonders of these islands.
What a pleasure to see so many smiles , availability and kindness sincere, we lose the habit in France !

Personally , I loved the Marquesas despite heavy rains and many mosquitos delighted to find fresh flesh ! !
 I found, and my son , very wise to have started and ended with the Marquesas atolls, or heat allowed us to fully enjoy the clear waters of the lagoons .
 
I hope that the colleague I glimpse at the airport when we arrived, gave you the little souvenirs from my island known for its salt marshes .
 
Thomas and I keep a wonderful memory of this great TRIP and we thank you for your advice and have been able to guide us in the choice of the many islands of French Polynesia.
All our friendships ,

Everything went like clockwork.
Home, inter-island organization PERFECT
We were pleasantly greeted well as in hostels, motel and hotel.
A MOREA, the two sisters Solange Yolande and worth visiting.
A Rangiroa, 2 couples were found in smaller (same price) and bungalows that we did not know in advance.
All excursions we made by ourselves, went well and all in a great atmosphere, as Tahitian work with joy and good humor, and it is very nice and relaxing.
We would have liked to stay a few days, but he had to return to France.
You have beautiful islands and beautiful lagoons and I hope it will last.
Regards
Catherine
