Island Discovery Tour

The Island Discovery Tour is a great way to explore Rarotonga in the comfort of an air-conditioned coach. This half day Cook Islands tour will pick you up from your hotel and head along Ara Tapu - the main coastal road that runs parallel to the white sand beaches and lagoon of the island.

On this guided Cook Islands tour, you will have the chance to explore the main township of Avarua, drive past ancient limestone churches, visit some of the ancient maraes - sacred sites once used for Rituals, Traditional Investiture of Leaders and Warriors, Tribal Meetings and Human Sacrifices.
