My dw and I will be in Papeete in November and I wasn't interested in a 4 wheel ride so began to look on the internet and found this self-tour map and explanation of what you are seeing.
Hope it helps.
BTW in Bora Bora you can make a reservation with Patrick for either a half, 3/4, or full day and the price goes down depending on how many others are going. You could set this up on your roll call.

Default Albert's Tours in Moorea?

Has anyone taken tours through Albert's on Moorea? We're considering the bus tour to Belvedere Lookout & around the island. Appreciate any input...don't yet have any plans on Moorea. Thanks!

I'd also be interested. I was never able to get an email response from Albert.

Agree also about the beaches on the Tuamotus - the best I have seen were on Pukarua and Hikueru.

If anyone's interested in seeing my photos of French Polynesia here's a link to my Flickr set -

Absolutely gorgeous pictures, thank you for sharing them.

Default Bikes on Bora Bora

We rented bikes on Bora Bora and rode around the island. If you are reasonably fit it will take you about 4 hours and you will see lots of locals, scenery and not a lot of cars once out of the downtown area. We stopped along the way to use the rest room at a hotel and got to see an over the water bungalow, stopped at Bloody Mary's(over rated) and a grocery store.

The rental place is just on the other side of the road from the pier.

We tired renting bikes in Moorea but I felt there was just too much traffic for safe biking.
