    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Rano Raraku, Easter Island Chile

    This is the only volcanic cone tuff quarry existing on the island. This material allowed the construction of the moai on a larger scale. Rano Raraku houses the quarry where the moai were built and from where they were moved to the ahu (ceremonial platforms) in the island.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Ahu Tongariki, Easter Island Chile

    Located opposite to Rano Raraku this is the largest platform from all of the reconstructed on the island. The ahu Tongariki is the most imposing moai platform in the island. This altar has fifteen visible standing statues overlooking the island with their backs to the Pacific Ocean.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Anakena Beach, Easter Island Chile

    This beach is characterized by warm turquoise waters and coral sand. It is the main beach of the island and used to be the ancestral residence of the Miru Araki royal family. The ahu Nau Nau is undoubtedly one of the most accomplished Ahu of the island because of the refinement of its moai.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Rano Kau, Easter Island Chile

    Located in the southwest side of the island the crater of this volcano is one of the most beautiful natural landscapes of Rapa Nui. With 1.5 Km large this crater is the biggest reserve of endemic flora of Rapa Nui and it lake served as an important source of drinking water

    Stop At: Orongo, Easter Island Chile

    O'rongo village is located on one side of the Rano Kau volcano crater. Its spectacular scenic location, its archaeological and historic relevance, the diversity and complexity of the site, make Orongo village one of the most important attractions of the island. It's one of the two main sites on the island as in this place was celebrated the Birdman ceremony. It also has a visitor reception center with a permanent interpretive exhibition.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Ahu Akivi, Easter Island Chile

    One of the very few ceremonial platforms not located by the sea. Its seven moais have been restored to their standing position by the archaeologists William Mulloy and Gonzalo Figueroa along with the Rapa Nui community. These moai have the particularity of having astronomical positioning guidance and look towards the setting sun.

    Our guide met us at our hotel, in a small SUV. Hit all the requisite sites (somewhat modified because of inclement weather). She was very informative and passionate about Easter Island's history. Highly recommended for those with limited time on the island.

    Excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable and no less enthusiastic made for an exceptional day - and more. Bad weather stopped the final part of the tour. The guide insisted on finishing the next day, no extra charge, to bring the history of the island to completion.
