Thank you so much for our lovely holiday with you. I think it was one of the most enjoyable, interesting, relaxing and remarkable holidays I've ever taken. You certainly made sure every aspect was as perfect as it could have been.

Excellent service for our Cook Islands group trip, even though I had to clean my own teeth, and tie my own shoes - everything else was done!
~ Dave G
Megan had such a fantastic time and took something like 1465 photos! I am recommending the trip to all my friends with younger kids. Thanks once again.

 Kia Orana and welcome to the Cooks!

The Cook Islands consists of 15 islands with a total population of approx 19,000 scattered over some 2 million square kilometres of the Pacific Ocean!  They lie in the centre of the Polynesian Triangle, flanked to the west by The Kingdom of Tonga and the Samoas, and to the east by Tahiti and the islands of French Polynesia.  The beauty and charm of the islands is matched only by the friendliness of her people.

Here among your island friends, you will find the hospitality warm and spontaneous, the music and dancing exuberant, and the mood relaxed … we look forward to welcoming you to the wonderful “Cooks” on one of our amazing fully escorted cultural tours.

“Just spent a wonderful week on the Over 50’s tour of the Cook Islands with Claire as our most wonderful guide! Thank you for the inspired itinerary, incredible restaurant choices and seamless organization, and all with your smile every step of the way.” – Tanya.

 “My heartfelt thanks to you for arranging an amazing tour to Rarotonga. Everything was so wonderful that even the rain and the cancelled trip to the lagoon didn’t detract from the experience. In fact the visit to the museum was a bonus. The accommodation at the Edgewater was delightful. I really appreciated the genuine friendliness of the staff and loved the activities which were offered. I even tried snorkelling for the first time and then got Dorothy to try it. Not bad for two old grannies!   Of course the  flowers were amazing and I will never forget the visits we made to various Island functions- all spot on for my interests.

A special mention must be made of the food. All so fresh, different and absolutely delicious. I know that we all ate too much but it was impossible to resist.  Altogether a once in a lifetime experience. If you ever need a volunteer tour leader, just give me a call and I will resurrect my bus tour leadership skills from my high school teaching days and get back to Rarotonga in a flash!  Needless to say I will be highly recommending Uplift Tours and hope to travel with you again in the future.” –
