Fodor's Expert Review Kava Kava Tours
This local company runs small full- and half-day tours taking in major sights, including moai and caves. One half-day tour goes to Puna Pau, the quarry from which the red stone topknots that sat atop the moai were carved. Another day-long tour goes around the Poike Peninsula, the oldest part of the island, and one of two areas open to hikers or people on horseback with guides only and not accessible by vehicle. Prices are steep so team up with others to form a group of four and bring down costs.
