Private Scenic Island Tour

The Private Scenic Island tour is an upgrade from the Island Discovery Tour, which is normally taken by coach with other visitors around Rarotonga. It is an exclusive and more personal tour of our island paradise that you will enjoy from the comfort of a private car or van with your very own English speaking driver and tour guide. As you travel along the ancient Ara Metua, or ‘Road of Toi’- built in 1050 AD as an all weather paved road, you will visit ancient maraes (ceremonial sites), and local plantations. You will also visit the Maire Nui Tropical Gardens, a wonderful place that portrays the exuberant tropical nature of the island with many varieties of tropical flora on display for you to enjoy.

You will stop to visit one of the first limestone churches built here in the village of Titikaveka, and then Black Rock—a volcanic boulder on the edge of the lagoon, traditionally believed to be the departure point of the spirits to Avaiki (the afterlife). You will enjoy a relaxing espresso coffee break in down town Avarua before heading to the stunning Muri lagoon to visit the departure point of the 7 Canoes that set sail for Aotearoa, New Zealand.

While you are in Muri, you will also visit Te Ara Museum, a building that houses many products and much history of the Cook Islands.You will then stop to admire Tokerau Jim’s mother-of-pearl shell carving and jewellery store.The tour will then continue on to the Rito factory, a boutique cold pressed coconut processing facility that specializes in beauty and health products made with cold pressed virgin coconut oil. Your scrumptious lunch is then served at the Mooring Café, here you will enjoy a taste of freshly caught fish by Captain Moko and prepared for you by his lovely wife.

English is not your first language? Our private tour is available in Italian, Spanish, German and Japanese!
