What to Expect What to Expect

After pickup from the Hanga Piko Port in Hanga Roa, your private experience begins! You'll be driven to the Ahu Vinapu ceremonial complex. The ceremonial center of Vinapú includes one of the largest ahu in Rapa Nui. This ceremonial center has an extraordinary platform, which stands out for having an architectural structure composed of large slabs carefully wedged, similar to the Inca constructions of Cusco.
Then re-board the minivan and travel south to Ana Kai Tangata, a cave along the coast.The only cave on the island to contain ancient pictures, many believe this location served as the starting point of the annual Tangata Manu ritual practiced until around 1800. As you listen to the rhythmic crashing of the surf against the cliffs and hear ancient legends, imagine the men selected from each tribe leaping from the cave and swimming toward the islet of Motu Nui to collect the first egg laid by a sooty tern. Many drowned or were killed by sharks. The first man to return with the egg was rewarded with riches for his tribe for the rest of the year.
Leave the cave and set sights on the Rano Kau volcano and its crater lake. Capture this dramatic landscape from three different vantage points before your guide takes you to the village of Orongo at the southern tip of the island.
Orongo contains 54 restored oval-shaped houses constructed out of slabs of shale, each with a small square entryway overlooking the ocean. Note the abundance of birdmen petroglyphs here, and learn about the site's use as a ceremonial center for birdmen rites between 1600 and 1866.
After your guide's introduction to village lore and legend, spend a little over an hour exploring the site on your own before transport back to the port for getting on the cruise.

We booked a tour that was specifically designed for pick up from a ship. The tour operator knows that ship guests have to be tendered to the island and that it can be very rough due to swells. When we arrived there was no one waiting for us, when we found our way, with another couple, to the tour office, it appeared that they knew nothing about our booked tour. They called another representative who was unable to provide a tour. We wound up renting a car and seeing the island on our own which by the way is very doable since there is only one road around the island. If you have a tour book and a car, your're golden.

No one showed up to meet us at the pier. This was a disaster.
