This was a most interesting tour. We visited all sorts of crafts on the island and our guide Ani knew the people at each stop and it was as if we had dropped in on neighbors. What fun. So much more fun and interesting than just going to the beach for a swim. Ani made a couple of stops that were of particular interest to each of us and that really made the day. And was terrific! What a gorgeous island!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Karen. All the best and keep safe. Cook Islands is Covid19 free. God Bless!

Ani ist eine sehr nette Guidin. Wir haben mit ihr die Insel kennengelernt. Für uns war es sehr wertvoll jemanden zu haben der uns alles zeigt und uns überall hinbringt. So konnten wir das maximum sehen in der Zeit die wir hier waren. Durch Ani hatten wir Zeit und keinen Stress. Vielen Dank

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nicole, Enjoyed our time. Thank you for choosing to have me show you our beautiful island. Hope that you will visit us again. Kia Manuia. Ani

Nice tour with Ani around a beautiful island. Unfortunately, the air conditioning in the van did not work and back windows did not open so it was extremely hot in the van.

Ani gave us a full day tour. I felt her command of the culture and history was not deep. She was nice. But the guiding felt more like that of a taxi driver than that of a professional guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Deborah, thank you for your feedback. This will help me to do better. Apologies I did not focus more of the culture and history. We certainly have alot of it. I enjoyed our tour and hope one day that you come back on a longer holiday in the future. Appreciate your feedback. Regards Ani

Ani is an amazing guide. She is very down to earth and also very knowledgeable/proud of her Cook Islands. The circle island tour was not only for scenic beauty but I also got to experience something more cultural in this tour. It is a beautiful island but I definitely recommend Ani to show you around for a good introduction. Hope to see her again soon.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Andrew Appreciate your feedback and it was lovely to take you around and show you our beautiful island. Thanks for taking the tour and hopefully we meet again.

This was truly one of the highlights of our 5 weeks in the South Pacific. Ani is an amazing guide- personable, knowledgeable and a great island host. At every turn she offered suggestions and options we could choose from and every one was a hit. From highlights like the Island museum, botanical garden and snorkeling to the little things like tasting dragon fruit and coconut milk and the best ice cream in the world and pointing out all the local plants, our group of 6 could not possibly be more pleased.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You guys are awesome! Thanks for spending your day with me. I am happy that you all had a great time. Thank you for visiting and choosing the best Tour Guide here in Rarotonga ;). All the best. Come and visit us again.. Regards Ani

Our rating. 5/5 We had an excellent tour by Ani. Her English was excellent. She asked what we wanted to see and was keen to accommodate our needs in our tour. Positively, no specific retail outlets were pushed, she made relevant suggestions of things to see, was very knowledgeable, explained local culture and habitat very well, took us to an excellent cafe for local foods and generally went the extra mile for us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: KiaOrana Rhona Thank you for spending your time with me.. Enjoyed our time.. it was a pleasure to share with you our beautiful paradise. You guys were fabulous. All the best. Regards Ani
