A grand tour of Tahiti's most spectacular highlights begins when you board an air-conditioned motorcoach for a half-day adventure with lively English-speaking narration and a stop for a refreshing beverage. Travel to the top of Tahara'a Hill for a panoramic view of Matavai Bay. Photograph Point Venus where Captain Cook set up an observatory, and get wet at the Blowhole of Arahoho, where a natural phenomenon forces pounding waves through a lave tube. Soak up local color as you drive through a series of small villages, cross into the flower-laden village of Papeari, and pause for a beverage at a waterside restaurant with a magnificent view of Tahiti's peninsula. Next, delight in the fragrant blooms at the lush gardens of Vaipahi, complete with a sparkling waterfall, and explore Mara'a Fern Grotto Caves, originally visited by Capt. Cook on his first expedition in 1769. Relax on the return to the ship.
