We were arriving in Raiatea on a cruise ship and a group of us booked this tour in advance. There were about 11-13 of us. We got there on time, he loaded us on the boat and we proceeded to wait and wait and wait. An hour later a lady shows up with the supplies for lunch, which were loaded... More

Mrs, We were delayed on departure due to other guests looking for restrooms and others who had forgotten their mask on the liner. We do not need to load food because the meal was prepared on the spot by other people. We have the greatest attention to the timetable because it is very important. Some of the people who swam...

We are at this moment, on a Windstar cruise and just got to Raiatea. In about 12 hours, we are scheduled with L'Excursion Bleue for an entire day tour of Tahaa. Just now, Bruno emailed me canceling the tour because he doesn't have enough people. This operation is ALL ABOUT PROFIT AND NOT ABOUT INTEGRITY. He could have easily accommodated... More

I had very high hopes for this tour based on the glowing reviews and the email correspondence I had with the owner, Bruno. Unfortunately, I am unable to give this tour the highest rating, based largely on Bruno not being the enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide I'd read so much about. He clearly acted like he did not want to... More

Thank you for this flattering review for my trip that brought you any satisfaction except insects and my behavior. I think to be attentive and generous with my clients, generous in time because I know that this trip to the heart of their trip is to reward their expectations, I discreetly try not to arrive too late for the meal,...

This excursion combines all the most popular excursions into 1 all day adventure! Vanilla plantation, black pearl farm, swim with sharks and rays, drift snorkel, beach lunch and boating throughout French Polynesia. There were 8 of us, we were the only ones who did not speak French. Bruno did an amazing job of interpreting for us at each of our... More

Wonderful snorkel trip. Pear farm visit was nice. Vanilla plantation was not as enjoyable as on our trip last year with George but ok. Bruno was fantastic

We recently went on a week-long cruise with Windstar in June. The shore excursions offered from the cruise were so expensive so we did our research on Trip Advisor. Based on the good reviews, we pre-booked the tour for L'Excursion Bleue. Bruno promptly booked our request prior to the trip with only requiring a deposit of 1500xpf per person. The... More

Thank you for your message, "good job" as the Americans say .. Thank you also for your rating. I tried to do the best in my absence, I was fortunate to recruit "Arava" our English-speaking guide who is a person who has great qualities. In short I will answer on certain points: Photos: sorry, the camera was forgotten in the... More

Great outing with a nice boat ride, learning a bit about how they harvest black pearls and grow vanilla. We didn't want to do drift snorkeling, so contented ourselves with doing the above and enjoying a delicious lunch on the motu. Some of us ventured into the water off of the beach, but for great snorkeling I waited until we... More

Although this excursion did not take place due to bad weather, I would like to commend Bruno on his professional and ethical handling of the cancellation. Based on feedback on the cruise ship it seemed that everyone had their money refunded by lunchtime that day. If we go to Raiatea, we would definitely book with L'Excursion Bleue again.
