Why do you think Tahiti is such a unique destination?
First of all I would have to say the lagoon - I have been to the Caribbean, Mauritius, Fiji and cruised around the Pacific Islands but I have to say that the mix of colours in the lagoon of the islands of Tahiti are completely different to anything else I have seen. I also love the French touch in their cuisine mixed with local produce like fresh fruits and seafood - there is a unique fusion to the food in Tahiti that it delicious!!! Mahi Mahi with Vanilla sauce - need I say more! The Polynesian culture is also quite amazing and unique. The people are so warm and friendly and it’s wonderful to be immersed in their lifestyle and culture.

What is your favourite island and why?
That's a tough one because I love so many for different reasons! The lagoon at Bora Bora is just so amazing with its mix of colours but I also love the cultural feel of Moorea and the fantastic snorkelling from the overwater bungalows. Tikehau is also such a stunning remote tropical paradise with an extremely authentic Polynesian feel. If I really had to choose I will go with Moorea as I love the beautiful lush mountains and the many activities you can do on both land and in the lagoon. I might change my mind tomorrow though as they are all so amazing!

Describe a “wow” moment you have had in Tahiti.
There are so many WOW moments but probably when a mother whale and her calf came right up by our boat whilst we were enjoying a lagoon tour in Moorea. I have never been that close to a whale before and it was amazing!!! Also the view of the lagoon whilst flying into Bora Bora and Tikehau – breathtaking!

What is the perfect day in Bora Bora for you?
I can’t go past the amazing Shark & Ray tour in Bora Bora. I still remember timidly putting my foot in the water as the reef sharks circled our boat and I was petrified but once I finally got into the water it was unbelievable. I used to be scared of sharks but now I’m super comfortable jumping into the lagoon with these remarkable creatures. The Rays are like cute little puppy dogs gliding past and letting you give them a pat. If you are lucky you might even get a kiss! The great thing about this tour is that you can absolutely stay in the boat and see everything due to the crystal clear water in Bora but I do recommend to take the plunge because you won’t regret it. Finish the day with a well-earned cocktail congratulating your bravery whilst watching the sun set.

What is the perfect day in Moorea for you?
I absolutely love the Quad Bikes / Rhino (buggy) tour on Moorea. It is full of action and adventure as you take the wheel and venture through the inner valleys of the island. You will visit Pineapple plantations as well as the Agricultural School to taste some delicious local jams. Making your way up Magic Mountain is certainly adrenalin pumping and the view from the top is breathtaking. Be prepared to get wet and muddy – one of the best parts is zooming through the little river tracks.

Why everybody should visit Tahiti?
Tahiti is such an amazing, breathtaking destination from the lagoon through to the culture. It is a must see bucket list destination but I also believe it is a destination that should be considered as more than once in a lifetime. There are so many amazing islands in Tahiti to explore!

 

Goran

Goran has a fun, can-do attitude and always strives to build a lasting relationship with his clients.

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!

Lawsyn

Lawsyn Russell, Tahiti Travel Connection Specialist

Lawsyn is a Kiwi who made the move to Sydney 2 years ago after spending 2 years working in London and traveling around Europe. Before going to the UK she was selling South Pacific destinations in New Zealand – Tahiti being her favourite (obviously) after travelling there on an educational trip!

Why do you think Tahiti is such a unique destination?
Tahiti has so much to offer – it is so much more than just a flop and drop destination. The landscape of each island is so different and you can explore each island in many different ways e.g. by quad bike, jet ski, 4WD, paddle board or on foot. The colour of the water is simply stunning; the different shades of blues and greens in the lagoon will take your breath away every day. Apart from the beautiful natural surroundings on offer, the cuisine in Tahiti is also fabulous. The mix of fresh Island food with a French influence does not disappoint. Tahiti really is paradise on earth!

What is your favourite island and why?
This is a tough one! I think ultimately Moorea is my favourite island because it has something for everyone. I l0ve relaxing on the beach and soaking up the sun but am also keen to experience a destination through tours and getting to know the locals. Moorea offers all of this in one island. In saying that – my dream holiday would be a visit to both Moorea and Bora Bora because they are both stunning locations.

Describe a “wow” moment you have had in Tahiti.
I will always remember the view from the plane flying into to Bora Bora. It really is the most stunning coloured water I have ever seen. Seeing all the islands, the mainland and the resorts from above is an awesome experience that I will never forget. I also loved swimming with sharks and rays and paddle boarding on the lagoon in Bora Bora.

What is the perfect day in Bora Bora for you?
Waking up in an Overwater Bungalow looking out at the beautiful lagoon and getting straight into my togs would be my ideal start to the day. Then heading out on a lagoon tour – either Shark and Ray or Jet Ski – to explore the lagoon and its inhabitants. I love snorkelling in the coral garden in Bora Bora and getting up close to the sharks and stingrays. Then back to my resort for sunset and happy hour – total bliss!

What is the perfect day in Moorea for you?
The quad bike tour in Moorea is a must. You get a great feel for the island and the people as the local guides are very knowledgeable and passionate about their island. Then back to my resort for a snorkel in the lagoon and some delicious Poisson Cru (like ceviche) for dinner.

Why everybody should visit Tahiti?
The beauty of Tahiti is unrivalled – it is not just the scenery either. It is the people, the culture and the food that continue to impress and amaze me. It should be a must do destination for everyone and once you have travelled there you will find yourself dreaming of going back.

Melissa

Melissa Demetriadis, Tahiti Travel Connection Specialist

Melissa has been in the Travel Industry for over 7 years. Her love and passion for the South Pacific has grown the more she visited the Islands with Tahiti always being her favourite destination.

Why do you think Tahiti is such a unique destination?
Boasting unique black sandy beaches, cascading waterfalls, lush mountains and amazing archaeological sites, Tahiti is the experience of a lifetime.

What is your favourite island and why?
I hate to just pick one, but for me it would be Bora Bora. When I think of Bora Bora I think of endless sunsets, cocktails, Overwater bungalows on top of tranquil clear water and raw unspoilt luxury. To me, Bora Bora is the pearl of the pacific.

Describe a “wow” moment you have had in Tahiti?
One of my many WoW moments that happened while I was in Tahiti would have to be Fishing old school off a boat in Bora Bora with a piece of wood, wire and some gloves. Not only were we fighting with the sharks to keep the fish on the hook, we were also trying not to get pulled over board by their strength. We then headed to a private motu where those very fish we caught were cooked for us on a rustic BBQ. The day finished off with a swim in one of the most magical lagoons I have ever seen in my life.

What is the perfect day in Bora Bora for you?
For me the perfect day would be spending as much time as I could in the lagoon. Whether it is going for a relaxing swim or snorkelling through one of the many vibrant coral gardens and seeing all the diverse marine life. With so many lagoon activities, one day will never be the same as the next.

What is the perfect day in Moorea for you?
The perfect day in Moorea would be full of action. First a walk along the beautiful sandy beach, followed by a quick swim. Then why not take an ATV quad bike tour up to Magic Mountain finished off with dinner and tasting authentic French Polynesian cuisine.

Why everybody should visit Tahiti?
Everybody has seen the pictures of the mix of colours in the lagoons that Tahiti has to offer, but to see it in person will blow you away. Pictures don’t do justice to just how beautiful and unspoilt the waters are. Don’t take my word for it though, see it for yourself.

Tina Heyer, Product & Sales Manager

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!
