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.
This guided tour will explore the main township of Avarua before continuing on to explore a number of sacred sites. Along the way you will see the remarkable limestone churches and maraes, sacred sites which were used for rituals, tribal meetings, human sacrifices and traditional investiture of leaders and warriors.
Get the insight of where the best snorkelling spots are on Rarotonga, watch a coconut husking demonstration and taste the flavoursome juices of the coconut and the flesh. Also enjoy the fragrances of various oils and perfumes, as well as tasting locally manufactured exotic liqueurs.
