14 Day Tahitian Treasures

  • Island hop through magical French Polynesia
  • Cruise aboard the luxurious Wind Spirit yacht
Includes Return International Flights

Paradise has a name… and it’s French Polynesia. Coral-fringed lagoons and mossy mountain peaks, indulgent luxury yachts and intriguing island culture are just the beginning in this dazzling island group - an oasis in the vast South Pacific. Isn’t it time you experienced its magic for yourself?

On this 14 day fly, stay and cruise package, French Polynesia is firmly within your reach. Get into the holiday mood with two nights at the romantic InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa, and then set sail for a life-changing 10 night cruise aboard the fabulous Windstar ‘Wind Spirit’ yacht. Cruise to the UNESCO listed biosphere reserve of Fakarava; spend a day on the private island of Motu Mahaea; take in the picture-perfect beauty of Bora Bora, enjoying ample time to get that perfect shot; visit Huahine, the oldest settlement in French Polynesia; and much more! This dazzling island adventure includes return international flights, two nights hotel accommodation (plus day use at the InterContinental Tahiti at the end of the trip), 32 meals, airport and cruise transfers, and more!

About Wind Spirit:

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured.
