Since 2002, we have organized vacations for thousands of travelers from all over the world. Their level of satisfaction is reflected through excellent client feedback and multiple repeat visitors! You can therefore reserve your next vacation with us in complete confidence.
We arrived home on Tuesday and have been busy catching up on chores so I apologize for not responding to you sooner.
I have to tell you this was our best trip yet to French Polynesia. Both islands were amazing and offered completely different experiences and exceeded expectations, The people we met at Pension Paradise were wonderful and the hospitality extended by Tate’ and Dali was exceptional. Tahaa was elegant and snorkeling was very good. I think the accommodations on Tahaa made that part of our trip my wife’s favorite. We thought this might be our last trip because we have other places we would like to visit but now we are thinking we have to come back at least one more time.
Thank you for your professionalism and help in putting this trip together, all the connections went like clock work and was for the most part hastle free from the time we arrived in Papaete to the time we left. I will definitely recommend E-Tahiti to anyone I know traveling to your area and contact you again when we begin to plan our next trip.
Please keep my e-mail and if you ever are visiting northern California please feel free to contact us and come visit. We hope to work with you again. Thank you again and hope your future is bright.”

I just wanted to thank you and Keikilani again for all you did regarding my recent trip to French Polynesia! I had a wonderful time enjoying the beautiful islands and amazing diving. As much as I have traveled, I don’t think I’ve ever been to such a beautiful place! I know I will have to come back again!
I was sorry not to have been able to come by and say hello, I was hoping to but just never had enough time. Hopefully next time! Take care Rachel, all the best!”
Dave – May 2018
“Maeva and Herald, we just wanted to say thank you for planning such a varied trip for us. Every place had its own distinctive features, and we liked them all. I think we probably enjoyed Elie’s place at Blue Heaven the best, but Josephine’s was so elegant and had the special treat of watching the dolphins. We’ll try to talk our friends into coming with us again in a year or 2.
We had a wonderful time! Thanks again. ”
Robin – April 2018
“Mateata and Mary Anne,
I just wanted to personally thank you for making my first (but not last) trip to French Polynesia perfect! I thoroughly enjoyed myself and cannot wait to go back. Next time, I’ll be looking at Bora Bora, Rangiroa, and Fakarava. 🙂
Thank you again for your excellent communication and organization!! It was perfect. ”

“Hello~ I am Socrates. Sorry for postponing this letter for almost two weeks. I was really busy with work after being back from Tahiti.
First of all, let me to say thanks a lot to you, Rachel????~~~you are a really kind, patient, and nice agent I ever met. My family and I really enjoyed an amazing holiday in Tahiti and BoraBora. Thanks a lot for your arrangement for the whole schedule. Even though it happened an ‘episode’ of the flights, Rachel tried her best to resolve it. At the beginning of the plan, I totally had no idea about BoraBora’s location, the time difference and also the flights. Under Rachel’s considerate explanation and recommendation, I enjoyed a perfect holiday, and also a meaningful wedding ceremony. (Rachel, please help me to say thanks to Claire, our wedding planner????). I felt my connection with Rachel was almost over half year, like making a new friend. ????HaHa~~ In addition, thanks a lot for your company’s precious gift. It looks so fantastic.????
I felt so pity that our trip was too short…. All of us did not wanna leave on the last day…I do not know using what kind of words to describe BoraBora’s beauty. However, after the trip, I just feel the sea color of Australia cannot be compared with BoraBora’s. ????We plan to come again next year~~maybe go to Moorea next time. I will also choose your company to arrange the travel.????
Again, heartfelt gratitude~thanks a lot, Rachel, and E-Tahiti Travel~~
Socrates – March 2018
I have just paid. Hope it’s not too late.
We LOVE Bora Bora.. It’s unbelievable..
And the Romantic Tour today was top of the top!!
Thank you for recommending it!
Edyta – January 2018
Happy New Year!
Andre and I had a great time in French Polynesia!
We would like to thank you and your team for all the effort put in planning our honeymoon!
Muito obrigado! =)
All the best,”
Vivian & Andre – January 2018
Happy New year to you
I don’t even know where to start…….this was an amazing experience; one which I couldn’t have achieved without
your wonderful advice and help.
Planning & booking
You couldn’t have made this easier, after our few emails you found my perfect getaway, the trip was exactly what I wanted. Everything went smoothly, and according to plan…wonderful. Not once did I feel unsure about any part of the trip
I didn’t think places like this still existed. I was hoping for a true “deserted island” experience and that is just what i got. Eric has created a truly special and remarkable place at Raimiti. Everyone was so kind, friendly and helpful….I loved it.
The meals were amazing, the food was fresh, varied and simple. They even packed up breakfast one day due to an early dive, this was really appreciated by all the divers!
The diving was fantastic…really world class. I was a bit dismayed when I was told that Top Dive had decided they were not conducting any diving that week, and unless one of the other companies were able to take me that there would be no diving available. I wasn’t sure how that could happen considering I had booked and paid for the dives!! However what I believe happens, is that the dive operators kind of work together to provide dives; and the fees are reconciled after the event; so if that’s the case then Ok, if not I can only praise Tuamotu dive, and eric for arranging the diving for me. Unfortunately I only managed to dive 7 and not the 10 dives; but it was beautiful and definitely worth another trip in the future
I cannot thank you enough for making this a perfect Christmas escape. Please pass on my thanks to your team who made this happen.
Blessings to you; kind regards. ”
Allison – January 2018
Just a quick note to let you know that our trip to Bora Bora and Rangiroa was great. All the arrangements were perfect. We enjoyed both resorts and the diving was excellent. I also appreciated the service to keep our luggage and drive us in to Papeete before our flight back to LA. That was a nice touch.
Thanks for making this trip so nice.”
Mark – December 2017
“I just wanted to thank the e-Tahiti for everything, because our travel to French Polinesia was perfect, we were too much better than we thought, thank you so much.
The e -Tahiti is the best agency to contract when someone wants to travel to French Polynesia, They are very organized and attencion.
No body asked me to advise the e-Tahiti, but when the something is great, it is necessary to compliment.
The travel that e-Tahiti organized is reserved in our hearts, thanks again.
Daniel – September 2017
“Hello there Rachel
Yes we had a wonderful time in Tahiti, Moorea and Rangiroa all are different in there own way and just fantastic.
Our pick up from airport on arrival was there ready for us and transfer was easy, great hotel the Manava and was super tomto enjoy the pool and food here. Flight to Rangiroa and transfer again worked like clock work and stay in Rangiroa was fantastic. The Pensionne was superb, excersion to Ile de Reef was again wonderful, everything in Rangiroa was great.
Flight to Tahiti again on time and easy as was the trip across the water to Moorea where we had our second part of the holiday which was awesome.
We would love to come back again to your beautiful island.
Amanda & David – September 2017
“Hi Mary Anne,
A big WELL DONE!
We were delighted with your arrangements for our trip. The accommodations: Mai Tai B, #105, and R cottage, #9, and the Havaiki cottage off the beach,#4 could not have been better if we were able to select them ourselves . . . .
Our favorite? Difficult call . . . all were exceptional. . . . but Fakarava. The family operation is 1st rate. Hugo met us at the airport, gave us the history of the island, the people (only 700 folks there) and their family history while he drove Pat and I to their resort.
Their evening meals—a fixed menu—was amazing. We regularly eat seafood, mostly Tuna, Salmon and Mahi Mahi—and their chef did great things: the filet of Mahi Mahi with a mango sauce was the best ever . . . Plenty of bikes in good condition as were their Kayaks. Wi Fi was equal to InterC.
Diving, of course, was terrific. Top Dive lived up to expectations—Daphne, Bora Bora, agreed I could do a 3rd dive, regretted I needed to pass to join Pat and some friends she met from Australia for lunch . . . Other TD locations were equally great. All were most helpful F’s South Pass was tops. . . all the sharks. North pass has it all. Tiputa Pass—amazing Dolphins . . .
We had an extended gap between planes on the return, so we grabbed a cab to the InterContinental—the Dutch manager remembered us, ordered us a return cab 3hrs later—just one example of the hospitality shown to us throughout our trip.
Definitely plan to return . . .
Jim – September 2017
“e-Tahiti is legit. Honestly, I was skeptical at first seeing as I was about to drop $15K on a honeymoon and never met the travel agent handling our adventure. But I am pleased and humbled to report everything went exactly as planned. I worked with Mateata Hutchinson who was a BIG help through the entire process. She must have sent me 10 different itineraries to look at and was always very responsive to my emails. She even went above and beyond to change our transportation from Tahiti to Moorea via boat so we didn’t have to wait 4 hours in the airport! Again very pleased with their service and would certainly recommend to fellow honeymooners looking for the Top Bucket List locations. ”
Justin – August 2017
The trip was fantastic, we enjoy every moment. We thank you for your support! ”
Julio – August 2017
” Dear Rachel,
Thankyou a lot for your assistance and patience.
1) Intercontinental Tahiti, ok
2) Intercontinental More, great stay, ok, but no beach.
3) Maitai Huaine’ perfect, good cooking and everything.
4) Maitai Bora Bora, good cooking, horrible road that divide the hotel, nice overwater villas
5) Maritai Rangiroa, nice bungalow, horrible cooking, servant (few) that didn’t work. It must have an efficient direction in the future.
6) Tour in Tahiti very nice with a professional girl that loves her job. Great.
7) Rachel: very efficient. Thanks
When we will come back in 7/10 years we hope to have the travel organized by you.
Alberto – August 2017
” Dear Lauriane Ia Orana!
I was going to email at Papeete airport on departure to thank you but I ran out of wifi!!
Thanks for contacting me as I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and of course Hina for making the trip to Bora Bora possible.
My family and I had the most wonderful time. Everything was perfect from landing at Papeete airport through to being greeted by St Regis staff in style all the stay and up to our departing beautiful Polynesia.
Your team has been great at accommodating any requests and queries before and during the holiday.
Many thanks. ”
Rosie – August 2017
” Ia Orana Mateata! Our trip was fantastic! The most beautiful place we have ever been! Miss it already! Thanks for your support Mateata. Regards”
Anastácio – August 2017
I love the Hotel in Bora Bora the Intercontinental, overall services and hotel facilities meet our expectation.
I think the One in Moorea ( also the Intercontinental ) is just ok, the room and overall services is not as good as the other ones.
From scheduling perspective, I guess the red eye flight to Tahiti did save us some time, so we can arrive in the morning and start our vacation … but I guess I will probably consider some excursion activities next time for Day1 , as in the peak season, it is hard to get early check in, and if we just keep waiting for the room , it is a bit of waste of time to hang around in the hotels
I love your suggest to the night market, I had my best crepe there…the time work out too, so we don’t need to wait in the international terminal for so long.
I really hope I had the chance to go back and visit soon and sure I will definitely in touch if we are going again.
Thanks for all your help arranging our trip to Tahiti
We had a great time.
Peggy – August 2017
The trip was fantastic! I don’t know what I was expecting, but it definitely surpassed anything I could’ve thought of.
The flight was long (duh) but I managed to sleep on the way THERE better than on the way back. My only complaint there was the smell. I’m not sure if it was the flowers or some type of lotion (lanolin maybe?) but it was very overpowering
I totally didn’t know what to expect when we got off the plane and to be met by South Pacific Tours was a shock – in a good way. What a comfort to know they had our back the whole way. Awesome. I can’t thank you enough for that peace of mind.
Sofitel. What can I say? It’s gorgeous. The people there – the whole island – the people were super nice and friendly. The hotel staff messed up and kept calling my husband Mr. Chrismer (I kept my previous married name when I married my 2nd husband – Mr. Filichia). They also temporarily misplaced his backpack (with his credit cards and laptop in it) so they comped us a dinner at the “K” (so NOT worth it) but at least they acknowledged their error. The “Pure” restaurant is by far superior to the “K” and if it wasn’t so expensive, we would eat there all the time. The food is heavenly.
The bungalow as perfect. The water was crystal clear. It could’ve been a tad warmer for me, but that’s me and nothing you can do about that. ???? We had so much fun. Housekeeping made sure to keep us stocked with plenty of bottled water which was great.
By all means – do recommend the Aqua Blue helmet dive. My husband, who is (was) deathly afraid of water, did the dive and LOVED it. We have video proof he even took his helmet off under water. The pics of him smiling underwater are truly priceless. Also – Rudy’s should be listed as a definite must for everyone. He may have, if not THE best, at least the 2nd best food on the island. And the owner is very personable.
The Tiki show was good; the food not so much. I would recommend the show but skip the dinner.
My husbands only complaint was the trip back. While we loved that SP tours kept our luggage before checking in at the airport, they dropped us off in the city at 6 and everything closed down at 5 except for bars and a few restaurants. We found a McDonalds, a Bistro and then a couple of bars. No place to shop or kill time. Luckily, one of the bar owners let us sit in her bar for an hour until the car came back to get us.
You will be pleased to know that my husband insists that we will return to Moorea in 2 years. Not sure I can save up enough money by then but he loved it so much he really wants to go back. And I was very pleased with everything you arranged for us. Thank you again.
Covonda – July 2017
We have checked in at Conrad. It is really a nice and luxury resort. Both my life and I like it very much. Many thanks for your recommendation and all arrangement that made our trip very easy and relax. Appreciated much! Regards,”
Eric – July 2017
Thanks for your honest response. About the feedback. I have used your agency back in 2006 for our 2nd trip to Moorea and Bora Bora, it was our last minute decision, being a French Polynesia local agent, you have gone to extra length found an available room for us in Moorea. This year, once we have decided our trip , I have no hesitation in using your agency again. Rachel, I was very impressed with your local knowledge and suggestions for our travel plan to fit our time and budget. You have been very helpful and promptly responded to each of my queries. The final itinerary was perfect. All the pick up and drop services were on time and hassle free. I will definitely contact you for our next trip and recommend your agency to my friends .
Things to improve. I assume the meal plan is different from hotel to hotel. I would appreciate to be informed beforehand. For example, at KiaOra Rangiroa, we can pick anything from the menu (3 courses ) without extra charges. while in Pearl Resort Tikehau, we can only pick 2 courses. some of the dishes also incur extra charges. Thanks”
Wen Jia – July 2017
“Ia Orana Sophie, It was absolutely amazing!! I wish we didn’t have to leave so soon! We will definitely be going back hopefully for another anniversary celebration some year (maybe next year if I can convince my husband haha)!! You did an amazing job putting it all together for us and we thank you so much!”
Sarah – June 2017
“Ia Orana Herald, Thanks for sending it to them. For sure we’d have a wonderful time at the islands. Congratulations for e-Tahiti Travel for the organization and attention during al the process. Hina and Maeva were very patient and always prompt to answer all questions and clarify doubts. Everything was on scheduled and we didn’t have any kind of problem with hotels, transfers and activities. Mauruuru roa. Everything was maitai roa. Nana. Best regards,”
Rodrigo and Mirismar- May 2017
“Bonjour Melanie, Thank you so much for checking back with me. Taha’a is a wonderful place and your suggestion to stay at the Relais & Chateau was perfect. The start of the trip was a bit rough, but as soon as we landed at the hotel, everything went very well. I will recommend you to everyone looking to travel to your paradise, and would also suggest the Taha’a Island Resort. I hope to visit again and will call you when ready. I appreciate everything you did to provide a beautiful trip.”
Peter- May 2017
“Hi Audrey- I’ve been meaning to write you and thank you for a truly wonderful trip!!! Honestly we wouldn’t have changed a single thing. Lodging was great, the time spent in the overwater bungalow was AMAZING, but the garden bungalow was closer to the pool & restaurant which was convenient when we first arrived and we’re still getting situated. We ended up doing a jeep tour to see inner Moorea which was also great & rented a car one day to drive around the island. The concierge at the intercontinental was great at making those arrangements since we were making plans day-by-day. The folks at TopDive were very professional and a lot of fun. The dives on Fakarava were incredible, totally above & beyond anything we could have imagined. Pearl haviki also perfect! And the Papeete express shuttles were perfect for getting to see a little bit of Tahiti between flights. The staff were all very prompt & friendly. Oh and the ferry to Moorea was also a great call, after the long flight it was nice to get some fresh air & stretch our legs & the ferry was very enjoyable. Everything really was truly amazing & we certainly hope to make it back some day. We can’t thank you enough! All the best,”
Amy- May 2017

“Dear Herald, I wanted to extend a sincere thank you for your excellent customer service from start to finish in the planning of our trip to Bora Bora and Taha’a. We had an excellent time and enjoyed both resorts very much. We took tours and rented a private catamaran! It was a fabulous magical fun adventure. Thanks to you we have memories to last a lifetime!”
Carlene – March 2017
“Hello Mateata, We hope you had a great time in Bora Bora. We enjoyed everything! The dives with Tikehau Plongee were satisfactory, since the visibility was not so great. Nonetheless, we live diving and make the most of every one of them. We have 2 more nights left in French Polynesia. It’s been a fantastic honeymoon and we’re lucky to have had this opportunity. Thank you for making this a reality for us! We hope to work with you one day again in the future!”
Trisha – March 2017
“Hi Herald, I’m just giving you my feedback about our stay in French Polynesia and I would like to thank you for everything.
All Islands were amazing, everything worked pretty well and we had no worry about anything.
We really enjoyed our vacation, and most of this it was because of your help and assistence.
Again, thank you very much and certainly, if somoeone ask about a trip for French Polynesia, I will indicate you and your agency.
Attached, I send you a photo that sums everything.”

“Dear Herald, Just got back last week and want to give you some feedback from our group. It was the most amazing trip we have ever taken yet. Thanks so much for your professional assistance and coordination for this trip this past year which culminated in one of the most memorable experiences for our group… But our overall experience was amazing and your professionalism and expertise were out of this world…I have a lot of friends who asked me to forward your services to them for their planning of similar trip … so expect to hear from them in the near future. As promised, I am referring all of my friends to you and your agency. Hope to cross path again the future when we head that way again. So thanks for everything. please help my friends with good deals like what you found for me….”
Vincent – February 2017
“Hi there Herald, I would like to send you an email with some information and feedback from our trip. Firstly, it was such an amazing trip and really worth having as a memory for a long time to come. I am so impressed with having seen what we did, and to have been able to experience it completely. Thanks so much for organizing the trip!”

“Hi Herald, Thank-you for letting me know. Our wedding is this weekend, so we are definitely looking forward to Bora Bora. Thanks again for helping us organise this fantastic break 🙂 Cheers,”
