          Great way to discover Rarotongan History
          Late pick-up from resort was soon forgotten by the VIP car and company driver who was very accomodating picking us up to drop us at our Tour van. Once onboard our guide demonstrated his knowlege of Rarotonga from agriculture culture govt chiefs and kings. Took us along the inner road where tourist don’t get to see, very interesting facts of the history and the Tribes that live there today. Followed by a refreshing light lunch in a tropical setting made for a delightful day. I would highly recommend this tour thanks for a fun filled way to discover Rarotongan History.

          A Brief Insight to Raratonga
          We were as a little disappointed with this tour. Maybe it was the sprinkling rain but I felt the tour guide/driver was uninterested in really showing us around. At the end we were given a lunch pack & off you go! Felt we would have seen & experienced more of the island if you had hired a car.

          Awesome Island Discovery Tour
          Highly recommend The Rarotonga Island Discovery Tour. You are taken to various parts of the island by a local that you may not necessarily visit, as much of it is on the inner roads. The sharing of local knowledge & tips was really appreciated. Extra time & attention to sharing was awesome. Meitaki!

          Ain’t no party like a Troppo party!!!
          This was amazing! well looked after by the lads that took us around in the bus. Checking in to make sure we were all ok. Got a Lei at the start to help with identification in the clubs, a cocktail at our first stop and nibbles at our second stop. it was a party from start to finish.

          Great trip. Went to places we wouldn't have otherwise seen. Lunch was excellent - made by local lady. A lot of interesting history and information about Rarotonga, but a little too much Jehovah "witnessing ". Would thoroughly recommend this trip though.

          Great way to familiarize with what the island has to offer
          Took this tour with Willie the first morning we had after arriving. Very informative about the life on Raratonga.We went to all the scenic places around the island and a little inland where people farm their crops.The water bottle and morning tea was a nice touch.Highly recommended.

          Great way to explore the island
          We recommend this tour, our driver "captain on-time" and guide "captain after hours" were fabulous. It was a great way for us to explore places around the island with a funny and knowledgeable local.

        I had booked a bus trip weeks in advance for myself and one other. Which included pick up from our accommodation, we tried to ring multiple times that day to ask what time pick up was as the email didn’t include the information just the time the trip itself started. After failing to get through, the reception called and there was a miscommunication as to when the pick up time was meaning we missed the trip - although I never got a text or a call, or any attempt from them to say our missing names to reception (reception was a few steps away from where the bus would’ve been parked. Could of even yelled it to them from where the bus would have been parked) for them to pass onto us (receptions fault also). Felt let down as there was no attempt at communication on their end, we have still been trying to call to try and rebook another time on our trip with no answer, even tried to message their Facebook page with no response for days. We requested a refund through Expedia which was denied from going troppo, we are now down $120 with no communication or the bus trip experience we were hoping for, as we have not been able to get in touch with them to rebook - or even get the merchandise we paid for in the tickets that wasn’t received since we weren’t on the bus. Would book with the other bus company in Rarotonga when I come back.

        Kia Orana Abby,apologies for the miscommunication from the Sanctuary and Raro Tours. I spoke with both the Guide and Driver. They arrived at the Hotel and asked reception they were there to pick up Abby Pickering and partner. Reception expected my staff to go looking for you throughout the hotel. That is not our responsibility. The bus waited 10 mins as they never got a response or any action from reception and moved to the next location. When you return call me Andre, Manager at Raro Tours Ph: 25325. I will give you and partner FOC on the Troppo Bus. My sincere apologies.

        This was a really good party bus. I must admit that my friends and I are not big drinkers but we wanted to do something fun for a 21st. We ended up on a bus with some super rowdy people that were a bit inappropriate and made the night much less enjoyable. However, this is not the fault of Going Troppo, they had no idea who was coming on the bus and it is a party bus afterall. Just bear in mind if you are not big into drinking culture like myself. The bus itself was amazing, it had beautiful lights and good tunes. Our guide was fantastic and we enjoyed getting to see all the bars which we would not have made the effort to otherwise. Despite the other people we had a good time and would recommend this tour. I would recommend having cash on you for a taxi if you're not a big partyer like myself and my friends. There were two buses running when we went and so we jumped on the other to get home slightly earlier but if that's not an option you might want to grab a taxi home rather than waiting it out till 2am.

        This is being marketed as the safe way to see Rarotonga’s nightlife where in fact it is the opposite. We were a small group and the guide more than once assured us that we would be looked after as long as we wore our lei’s so he could identify us in the bars. We went to a total of five bars and ended up at Rehab. We were told that they were open until two but if the group decided as one to leave earlier we would. The club was busy and not our scene so I went looking for our group only to be told they had left quite a while ago. I panicked a bit as I am unfamiliar with the area, we were able to get a taxi who stopped at an atm and I withdrew $50 and we were dropped at our accommodation. It was a horrible way to end a badly organised night. We had a young single intoxicated female in our group as well and I have no idea how she fared. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, $172 and we didn’t even get a ride home.

        This experience was awesome. We absolutely loved our hosts, they were super fun and offered us drinks a few times throughout the night. The pick up and drop off were easy and were right on time. We went to a really good range of bars and I feel like there would be something that everyone would enjoy.
        I would highly recommend Going Troppo and would go again if we return to Rarotonga. Going with a group of friends would be fun but it was also fun to socialise with new people.

        Was a great experience ! Had music playing, great vibe, and met some nice people. Other friends on the rehab bus said they didn't have any music and was a bit overcrowded. Both seem great. It just depends on how many people you're going with. Smaller group on troppo. Both go to the same places.

        What a fantastic night! Ages on the bus ranged from 21 to 60, with the majority of people on our bus under about 25 (we are in our early 30s). Lots of drinks and lots of dancing will make this a night to remember. The second bar visited is on the beach - get a self-filling cocktail and chill out with complimentary nibbles on the sand. The last bar we visited, Rehab, was great for dancing and closed at around midnight. We were the last to be dropped off and got back to our resort at about 1am.

        NEVER book this tour. My partner and Is ticket said a 7pm pick up and our friend who was staying at the same villa as us had a 7:30-7:45pm pick up time. Come 8pm two busses had gone past us with not a single one stoping to pick us up, even though we were sitting on the side of the road outside out accom. No communication from the company, no being able to contact them as their office hours close at 2 and overall just a total letdown and a waste of money. Such a rip off, do yourself a favour and save your money and never book it!

        To be honest when you hear "we're gonna take you to four bars" you instantly think, ayyyye just four? 😂 but holy heck, my family and I had so much fun! From the moment I hopped on the bus to the moment I got dropped of I had the bestest time! Such a pity I broke my going troppo light flashing cup, it would've been a very nice souvenir!

        Every time we drove past the REHAB bus, they looked boring and our little bus was LIT ! or maybe we just had a good bunch on our bus, made new friends, met extended whānau.

        Thank you to the hosts for getting us all home safely, although, I fell off my bed and slept on some tiles for a few hrs😂

        Definitely a must do experience!

        OMG best night out in ages.....Our host was amazing and welcoming and our driver was excellent, the groups that joined us were fun and a great bunch to be on this bus with. Not only did our hosts take some of our groups home a tad bit early they also came back and picked up the rest of our group that wanted to hit the last bar, making sure we all got back to our accommodation safely . I highly recommend this excursion for an awesome fun night out.

        Wonderful experience with my family, although the taste of music pub crawling is a variety. Everyone have their suits. The driver and escort did a marvellous job getting us on the bus at each drop and taking us home safely. Thanks a bunch.
