The islands are wonderful and very friendly locals. Excellent contact with Frederic , fabulous trip .
After trolling the Internet for months, trying to find a trip of a lifetime experience in French Polynesia, I came across 'Yes Tahiti'. After a long struggle of knowing which island to visit, where to stay, what to do, Frederic Bonhoure from Yes Tahiti rescued me.
I gave him instructions on things we like, what we wanted out of the trip and roughly where we thought we wanted to go.
Very quickly he came back to me with an itinerary that really didn't need tweaking. It was near as damn it, perfect, for what we wanted.
I were there for three weeks. In that time, from being picked up from the airport, every little thing was taken care of. We didn't have to think about a thing. Every time we moved on or something was happening, the night before, an itinerary was left in the room, with times and where we needed to be.
We opted for a Catamaran for one week in the middle of the three. I would suggest to anyone visiting French Polynesia to take advantage of this. It is definitely the best way to see so much without feeling stressed and hurried.
Tahiti Yacht Charter were incredible. Our captain 'Alex Delattre' and 'Tea' our crew, were incredible. I miss them every day. We were made to feel like family and they did an excellent job. The food was local cuisine and very tasty. The catamaran was kept beautiful clean and decorated with shells and flowers. The Captain was so knowledgable about the sailing, scuba diving and the history, amongst other things we asked him. He took us to places we never would have found, discovered or experienced without him. He really was amazing.
The whole trip was incredible. Something I will remember for the rest of my life. We will return, with our family. I can't wait to share the experience with them.
As we said before we left, "This is not GoodBye, it's, Until we meet again"
7 – Do you intend to come back to French Polynesia in the next three years? Yes!!!
It might be just after as it is definitely a place to mark a mile or big celebration. Our first trip was to mark our silver wedding anniversary.( I can honestly say it was as good and memorable as our wedding day)
Our second trip will be to mark our 30th anniversary. (Time to save)
Thank you for your help!

Ia Orana Fred,
The dream is already over!
On behalf of my family, we wanted to thank you for the excellent organization of our trip, everything was perfect! Sailing with skipper Pierro and Yasmina hostess remains the highlight of our stay. Congratulations to you and we will not fail to recommend to our knowledge - friends for their future travels in Polynesia !
One small note which you are absolutely not responsible and the lack of rigor in the accounts of Intercontinental hotels in the 3 hotels we have to redo the bill to take into account the vouchers ..... and just settle amounts for extras.
Wishing you a good day,

I just wanted to say 'A Big Thank-you' to You and Jack for making our trip of a lifetime, celebrating our 25th Anniversary, completely pain free.
From start to finish, it was an amazing experience.
Never been to the French Polynesia before and having no one to ask, because no one we know have been, we were very much in the dark.
You took that worry off our hands and planned a schedule for us, with just a few 'must dos' from ourselves.
Right from the flight over, everything was taken care of. We didn't have to think about a thing, all we had to do was enjoy our time there.
You booked the best of everything within our budget, every detail was taken into consideration and nothing was left out.
We had a schedule given to us for every time we moved to another part, stating times, pickups and drop_offs. We didn't have to ask or worry about a thing.
The catamaran was fabulous. Our captain and crew were wonderful. They made us feel like family. A week on a small vessel could have been very uncomfortable, but to the contrary, we had a blast.
After nearly three weeks of mind blowing beauty, a part of our heart will be left in French Polynesia.
We can't thank you enough for the experience and discovery of your beautiful country.
We will be returning.
With love and thanks again

In short : Excellent organization of our trip. If we could have one full day at the end of Tahiti because the craft is difficult to find in the islands
All excursions made with local guides were amazing.
Travels in Polynesia are badly sold in France. It has to be more promoted !!

Details of accommodation:

The Maro'i pension is more available.
-Hee tai innate Nuku Iva:
Ms. Rose is a little outdated, it remained blocked there 40 years by cons staff is not especially charmant.Ne dinner here the prices are exorbitant and they are nothing in .it is very biased attitude compared to the village. She is the only one to have claimed the tax.
- Mana Tupuna to uka ua:
Superb welcome from Karen, Sylvain and children. Stately guesthouse, very family friendly.
Even if there is no hot water or air conditioning is the best place of stay. A beautiful encounter, although we stayed there stayed longer.
-Pukuee To ua pou:
Elisa and jerome are charming but not very professional.
Elisa looks tired of everything. The pension is very clean and redone great view of the bay
-Kanahau In Hiva Oa
Tania is excellent in all !! Home, history, botany, humor, kitchen ....
Her good humor is infectious, she is always available to us, cooking as a chef. The bedrooms nice too. Another very good address.
- Raivavae Tama resort:
Eleanor and Denys are too business too.
Otherwise pleasant bungalows. We reported at the airport at Eleanor oblivion of a watch in the bathroom but it was not very concerned.
- Wipa lodge Tubuai:
Wilson is really a character to meet, good evening in his company
Very good food Gisele. The new board will be superb.
- Manotel to Rurutu:
Yves and his family are lovely. An extraordinary garden. An address to remember, flawless. Excellent cocktails made by beautiful girl.
all excursions made with local were superb.
A ua uka horse with Alexis, fishing with Roger (Karen thank you for the tips)
A louse ua tour with jerome (too theoretical)
A Nuku Iva Thierry fishing excursion with Richard
Tubuai meeting with superb sculptor Jacob M Bataillard
6) course which we recommend Tahiti and her islands to everyone
Polynesia is badly sold in France, we promote it more !!
7) I have already answered it seems to me otherwise I'll write a novel.
8) of course I authorize to use my comments
But according to the guest rooms, it seems that few agencies are moving to meet them unfortunately.
Soon may be new adventures
Fred thank you
