We will be in Papette on a WC on Viking in January. The included tour is walking tour of Papette. Wondering what to do with the rest of our day (until 6pm)? I read that there is no real close snorkeling DIY. Ship has an excursion via jeep to "unspoiled wilderness" four for $109....any private tour guides that you would recommend?

Patrick's interior island tours is fantastic. Waterfalls, swimming ponds ... just beautiful.

 

Another idea would be to rent a car and go visit the landmarks and museums. Papeete is a busy city and other than the Le Marche, the cathedral and the waterfront in the evening is just a busy city. To see the real beauty of a Tahiti you need to get outside Papeete.

 

There are 2 rental places within walking distance of the cruise ships. Hertz and Avis.

I'm thinking of a car rental.can we leave luggage somewhere so we don't have to hire a large vehicle that includes a big boot/trunk?

The Avis rentacar you mention,is that walking distance from cruise terminal?

You would need to check with them about types of cars/vans.

The market is a great way to spend some time getting souvenirs. It is the place to grab local food and those beautiful flower arraignments for your cruise cabin!
