Why do you think Tahiti is such a unique destination?
Tahiti is unique because it is a melting pot of culture. French and Polynesian, as its name suggests, Tahiti combines the modern culture of France along with the ancient culture of the Polynesian tribes and offers its visitors a glimpse into the arts, cuisine, hospitality and often luxury that the two are well known for. It is also unique because each of its 118 islands are different and unique in their own way, from the language being spoken, to the gastronomic specialties on offer. One could spend a lifetime enjoying the Islands of Tahiti!

What is your favourite island and why?
I have a few in mind but the one that sticks out to me is definitely Moorea. I love the fact that I can walk around, mingle with the locals and still experience resorts and lagoon snorkelling. Moorea has a lush interior with many mountains which set a beautiful backdrop when look back from its many beaches. Truly an island worthy of exploring.

Describe a “wow” moment you have had in Tahiti?
I never in my life thought I would be in Bora Bora 5 cm away from a huge black tip reef shark, yet there I was glaring into its eyes in the open lagoon whilst the other yellow butterfly fish and sting rays darted around us. It is quite an inspiring moment to know you are sharing their home for a short while. Being chased by a Picasso Triggerfish was not exactly inspiring but funny nonetheless. There are just too many other WOW moments to discuss! I want to share these experiences with everyone!

What is the perfect day in Bora Bora for you?
I love being on the beach, whether a resort beach or on a private motu. As long as there is food and drink, I am happy! Mixing it up with a jet ski tour and a snorkelling safari would make this day even better. I think everyone has to experience Bora Bora for its lagoon activities. Even the reef side is spectacular, not just the lagoon.

What is the perfect day in Moorea for you?
In contrast, Moorea is definitely the island for land activities. My perfect day includes going for a long walk along the coast and visiting the local markets and stalls by the water. They sell fresh fruit, pareos, etc. I would also do the ATV quad bike tour up to Magic Mountain, through the pineapple plantations, inland Moorea and again along the shore. It is such a good way to visit the locals and see the agriculture that Moorea is so famous for. The juice factory is also a must!

Why everybody should visit Tahiti?
Everybody needs to see the beauty of the islands. People often compare Tahiti with other island destinations, but it is truly unique. There are shades of blue in these lagoons that you cannot even describe! The drastic changes in landscape, colour and culture truly make the Islands of Tahiti worth exploring. Come and see for yourself!

Tina came to TTC with a wealth of experience in worldwide travel for 20 years now. She has been visiting and selling the Pacific destinations for many years. She knows what’s out there and agrees that we sell the best destination of all - a very unbiased opinion of course! Tina’s passionate and enthusiastic personality is appreciated by all and she loves going the extra mile for clients, helping to make their dreams come true just as hers did the first time she visited Tahiti.

Why do you think Tahiti is such a unique destination?
There is so much more to Tahiti than meets the eye – each island has its own charm and beauty. From young, volcanic & mountainous islands standing tall with deep, dark water surrounding them, to older volcanic islands so far beneath the sea all that's left is a ring of islets with a gorgeous lagoon in the centre, making for perfect snorkelling and diving. You will lose count of the different colours of blue in the lagoons, and different species of sea life, including the friendly sharks! There really is something special, and in a way magical, about the islands of Tahiti.

What is your favourite island and why?
If I had to pick, it would be Moorea - I love the lush green mountainous landscape of Moorea and the fact that there is SO much to do! I love being able to relax in a hammock on the beach or hire a bike and cycle around, go quad biking up to Magic Mountain which offers spectacular views, swim with sharks & rays and finish off the day at one of the many local restaurants with a Hinano beer!

Describe a “wow” moment you have had in Tahiti?
The one that stands out for me, amongst a lot of different wow moments, is the wave runner tour around the island of Bora Bora. The variety in colours is just amazing. To see the island of Bora Bora from the lagoon is nothing short of stunning. Bora Bora’s turquoise lagoon is one you will never forget!

What is the perfect day in Bora Bora for you?
Go out and experience the lagoon! Start the day with a wave runner tour around the island of Bora Bora followed by a lunch at the famous Bloody Mary’s to finish the afternoon with an exciting Shark & Ray Snorkelling tour. Fun times!

What is the perfect day in Moorea for you?
It would have to be a Quad Bike Tour through the heart of the island. Moorea is stunning and to experience it on the back of a quad or SSV vehicle is THE way to do it. Finish the tour on top of Magic Mountain with its stunning views of the west side of the island. This is a secret spot!

Why everybody should visit Tahiti?
I fell in love with French Polynesia a long time ago; the smell of the Tiare flower in the air, the stunning colours of the lagoon, the majestic mountain range but most importantly the friendliness if its people. The Islands of Tahiti have such a huge variety of different experiences – everyone should experience this beautiful destination at least once!

Natalia Machado, Tahiti Travel Specialist

Why do you think Tahiti is such a unique destination?
Tahiti is much more than the cliché honeymoon destination. There is something for every type of traveller - whether you are a solo traveller, with family or celebrating your wedding anniversary. There is a spot for everyone. The mix of the Polynesian and French culture makes it that much more interesting.

What is your favourite island and why?
Fakarava – the ultimate paradise offering simple local accommodation, perfect lagoon with great snorkelling and diving, and the fact the wifi is not the best means that you get to completely switch off from reality.

Describe a “wow” moment you have had in Tahiti?
I had two “wow” moments. The initial one was flying into Bora Bora for the first time and seeing that the water is not photoshopped in the pictures. It really is that blue. The second was riding a quad bike up the mountains of Moorea and having the most amazing view over the entire island and lagoon.

What is the perfect day in Bora Bora for you?
My perfect day would be to wake up in my bungalow, enjoy a thorough buffet breakfast, lazily roll over to the beach, enjoy some paddle boarding and snorkelling followed by a massage. Bora Bora is all about relaxation for me.

What is the perfect day in Moorea for you?
I like to be active in Moorea, so I like to wake up early, eat, and head off to explore the island. Whether it will be to hire a car and self-drive around and discover random beaches on my own, or do a tour like the quad bikes and jetski and have a guide show me around. The locals are so friendly and knowledgeable about the history of cthe island.

Why should everybody visit Tahiti?
Tahiti is the ultimate bucket list destination – who doesn’t want to visit paradise? You have the lovely locals, the amazing seafood, beautiful culture, and perfect beaches and water.
