About the Author

"So this is where people from Tahiti go on vacation?" - this question was asked of Celeste several times during her voyage through the Maritimes. Lighthouses and lupine are a far cry from palm trees and hibiscus but that's just what she was hoping for. Celeste fell in love with the crisp air, became certain that Atlantic lobster is the best food on Earth and came unabashedly out of the closet as an Anne fan. Satiated, she returned to her island home, husband and two children to eat mangos instead of blueberries. She is still dreaming of lobsters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great download for my phone May 10 2013
By J.D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My wife and I just got back from a cruise in the South Pacific with three days before and after the cruise on Tahiti. Since we knew we would have time on our own and there would be many excursions I decided the lonely planet book would help us evaluate things we shouldn't miss and what excursions would be worth while... and I was glad we had it. The list of the top things to do in French Polynesia inspired us to make sure to see the waterfalls on Tahiti, which was one of the best experiences we had (since we saw them in the rain so they were huge). I don't know if we would have prioritized them as much without this guide.

I did decide to get the electronic version so I could have it on my phone rather than carrying the book around. I was glad for this because we could often refer to it during a meal or at another time when i doubt I would have been carrying a book around. The organization of the kindle version is a little klunky due to the way the original table of contents is laid out but usable. Oh... I did not get a travel plan for my phone so make sure to download it before you go or you risk some hefty data rate charges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Going to Tahiti. Great book!! March 1 2013
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We are going to Tahiti on the Oceania Marina in April 2013. We attempted to schedule excursions 2 mo. prior to sailing date. Much to our chagrin, we found that most of the excursions were booked. We ordered this book to our Kindle and used it to arrange a much superior agenda for this trip. Great book!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as Moon Tahiti July 27 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently went to Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea. I bought this book as well as Moon Tahiti and thought that Moon Tahiti was more informative. This one's not bad, but I felt that Moon Tahti had more information and more options on things to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable March 16 2013
By Trig - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Over the course of planning our honeymoon we started having issues finding all of our options in French Polynesia. While most business have a web presence, they aren't search optimized and quiet frankly, they are terrible and exume little faith in their services.

The Lonely Planet guide book has been indispensable. It's reinforced some of our rare finds and help show us all options.

• Easy to flip through
• Well organized
• Up to date
• More useful than a travel agent we tried to work with!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great in hard copy, bad in Kindle July 25 2014
By C. Schoelch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While I believe the lonely planet series of books are great, this is NOT a book for a Kindle. You can get very lost by clicking on certain areas and trying to get back to the original page is about impossible. I ended up ordering the hard copy of this book, which has been very informative and great. I do not think the format of these books works with the Kindle, unless you intend to read from start to finish, without going to reference pages, etc.
