If you have come to this page to find guided tours on Easter Island you have come the the right place. Take a little time to explore our pages and you will find that we can provide complete personalized solutions
for your time on Rapa Nui.
The owner Paul H. Pownall has been involved in
the archeology and Rapa Nui culture since 1962. (That year is not an error, he started
getting to know the island when he was 10. More about that once you are here.) We tailor each tour to the knowledge and
interests of our guests to provide an unforgettable experience for all ages.
One of the reasons to come to Easter Island is to get to know personally the sights, sounds, and history of this now famous and almost
The Rapa Nui people left enormous iconic landmarks, subtle hints to a special way of life. Behind and through the Easter Islanders
is a special way of looking at the world we live in today. After taking the time and effort to actually make it tour our green island
in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, it is important
to learn more than you can scrape together from books and videos by taking a tour with someone with years of experience on Rapa Nui before
exploring on your own.
Although we have a number of sites that we always visit so you get to know the important stories
and aspects of Easter Island, our tours are not fixed with a set order and amount of time at each site. We will take a moment to find out
what you already know, want to know before starting. Of course we have a
recommended set thins to see. We will give
you insights into each site, various theories and and encourage you to ponder the reasons for one point of view or another.
After knowing a little more, we hope you come to your own conclusions and we love your questions.
Even through there are 30 good sites to visit
