Almost 70 years ago I was entranced by Thor Heyerdahl's Kon Tiki and Aku Aku. To finally be here was a dream come true. The island was more lush, the local traditions still strong and its people more welcoming, happy and proud of their heritage than I expected. I am entranced with the modern Rapa Nui.
The program was outstanding . You will come away feeling that the many Moai scattered over the island take you back 500 years since they were created. The statues are very much "alive" today !
The expert lecturers thoroughly presenting all of the facts, theories and hypotheses along with the statues visual impact will leave you in awe. Engage the island culture and breath deep!Indeed an overall unique experience.
This was a fantastic experience on the "tiny" island of Rapa Nui. We learned much, and of the plight of the indigenous islanders. The archaeological sites (Moai, Ahus) were amazing. The week-long immersion was wonderful.
