Reviewed By Steve K

The folks at Moorea Activities Center run a great operation, provide more value-for-money than anything you can conceivably find in an excursion company and are a customer-first business. . . I used them 3 times on my inaugural trip to Moorea a couple weeks ago and they are one of the finest excursion companies I have come across. Benjamin (owner/operator), Patrick (Benjamin's father/business coach), Oliver (ATV tours) and Amou (jet ski tours) are a great group of guys. I unequivocally endorse their activities. . . taking an excursion with them will likely be the highlight of your vacation to French Polynesia. . . it definitely was for our!!!

Magic Mountain

Reviewed By heindels - Atlanta, Georgia

We booked through Crystal Cruises with Alberts 4x4 ATV on a 3 hour tour of Moorea Island. It was one of the highlights of our visit through the South Pacific. The scenery was breathtaking. Belvedere Lookout Point was perfect for photographs as was Magic Mountain overlooking the blue lagoon below. We had a great ride through streams, steep inclines, rough terrain, Forests, switchbacks, you name it. What a thrill.
We visited pineapple plantations, ancient burial sites, and stopped at the Agricultural school for a break to taste various fresh fruit jellies, and fruit juices.
These highlights are not to be missed.

My husband and I stumbled across Moo while looking for crafts. This was a lovely boutique with a range of crafts and souvenirs. The items here are more upscale as opposed to touristy souvenirs. There is local artwork for sale as well. My husband purchased a clay doll with a black pearl for me for about $120 US. I would definitely like to return here.
