FAQ

FAQ - Polynesian History & Cultural 4WD Island Tour

  • Chevron down Do we need sunscreen?
  • Although our trucks are covered you will be getting out of the truck a few times and having a little sunscreen is always a good idea. I would recommend SPF 50 sunscreen. It doesn’t go higher that that, if you see more it’s just a gimmick to get you to pay more!

  • Chevron down What kinds of shoes should I wear?
  • Wear comfortable flip flops/slippers/tongs or shoes, please refrain from wearing anything with heels as when you get out of the truck to visit the sites the ground can be a bit uneven.

  • Chevron down Should I bring a camera?
  • Definitely bring your camera, there will be many picture-taking opportunities along the way. It’s really hard to miss a shot in Bora Bora.

  • Chevron down Is it safe?
  • We have engineered our roads to be the safest on the island. Our tour is designed around safety first and our tour guides have been trained with that on their minds first!

  • Chevron down Should I bring money?
  • I would advise you to bring a bit of money as we do make a stop at a Pareu (sarong) workshop. These Pareus are fairly inexpensive and a great hand made souvenir from Bora Bora.

  • Chevron down What happens if it rains?
  • Our trucks have a top and if necessary we do have side covers we pull down which are see-through.

  • Chevron down I have a bad back. Can I still go?
  • We have taken many people that have bad backs and we make sure to be extra careful when someone with that condition is on board! Even having that person sitting next to the driver so that they are facing frontwards. We have designed our roads to be as easy as possible.

  • We have guides that can speak English, Spanish, Italian, French and Japanese.
