Step into the slippers (flip-flops) of a local and join us as we snack our way around Moorea. Tama’a means to eat in Tahitian and we will be doing just that as you and your taste buds discover Moorea.
During your food tour you will taste and visit authentic local finds that will offer unique flavors where locals like to eat. The food in Tahiti consists of three cultures, Tahitian, Chinese, and French. On the Tama’a tour we will seek out hidden food gems from all three of these backgrounds.
We will be tasting a diversity of food and drinks such as local seasonal fruits, casse-croute, fish dishes, pai, mape, and other delicious local snacks that stem from the three cultures that make up French Polynesia today.
Guests will experience a minimum of 6-8 tastings, depending on season and/or availability.
