  1. We were on a Tahiti Cruise (Oceania) in February 2019. We LOVED H2O Bora Bora. It is essentially a private tour. At that time he only took four people. Now he has a bigger boat and can take 6. We are booked on the Windstar Spirit in about 10 weeks. I have booked with him again. We have our fingers crossed that the itinerary will happen, Delta will not cancel the Air France flights, and that we can take non cruise line excursion. Bora Bora H2O snorkeling excursions - lagoon tours I highly second the Coral Gardens drift snorkel. We are booked through Windstar to d
  2. Yuck! I just saw this thread. We are booked on Delta/Air France in October. This trip is a rebooking. If we have to switch to Air Tahiti Nui our Business Class tickets will be at least three times the price of Delta. If we can even get seats. Fingers are crossed for Air France to begin their Paris to LAX leg in September. (Delta told me that the AF planes are grounded in France and unable to fly to LAX.)
  3. I spoke with Windstar about our Tahiti trip and they told me that we need to pre-order at least two weeks before embarkation. They have to have the tests onboard and coordinate with the health facility that processes the tests.
  4. We are booked for January 2022. We just bought our airfare, booked hotels, etc. We will go if possible. We are vaccinated for Coronavirus. We will be careful. A lot can change in 4 or 6 months…
  5. I got pricing from Gus. The only drawback is that he has a sedan and we are four adults. One of us would have to sit in the middle of the back seat.
  6. And the same questions for you - Did Gus act as just the driver, or did he actually accompany you on the tours?

  8. We considered the Hilton. We finally settled on the Fairmont Copacabana at the other end of the beach right between Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. We decided to book our airfare from Buenos Aires to Rio and our hotels on our own. I am contacting both your suggestions (Gus and Rafael) about arranging transportation and 2 1/2 days of touring. Thanks for the great information.
  9. We went to Iguazu Falls Argentina side in March 2020 after a cruise from San Antonio Chile to Buenos Aires. We took a cab to the airport (short drive) and flew to Iguazu Falls. We spent three nights at the Gran Melia Iguazu Falls (well worth the money), We arranged through the hotel, a day on the Brazil side. Even with three and a half days of exploring, I want to go back. The three days including the flights came out to about the same dollar amount as a one day quickie tour. We arranged ground transportation through the Gran Melia (four adults) which was only about $20 USD ea
  10. We are considering flying from Buenos Aires to Rio after an Antarctica Cruise. If you flew to Rio after a South America or Antarctica cruise - did you use a Tour Company or did you book on your own? What were your experiences?

  12. https://www.travelweekly.com/Cruise-Travel/Caribbean-calls-canceled-Windstar-return-cruise This article says Windstar has made the cruise free for all passengers. is this really happening?
  13. We usually take ship tours due to the large amount of OBC we receive. Yes, we do sometimes book our own private excursions or rent a car. I am only addressing the fact that we have taken ship excursions on several cruise lines. On our Windstar Wind Spirit cruise from Barcelona to Rome the excursions were all small group. And we had a representative from Windstar on each excursion with us that spoke several languages - English, French, Spanish and German. It is just my opinion but I find the Windstar excursions to be very well priced with a lot of attention to details.
  14. It has been a few years since we were there. Tahiti - Intercontinental Tahiti - Pearls in their jewelry Store Raiatea (or it could have been Huahine) - Carved and etched pearls Tahiti Airport - best prices on carved outrigger paddles.
