Fantastic tour. Knowledgeable guides and excellent driver.
Moses our driver and Baptiste our guide were truly excellent. They gave us so much interesting information while we were travelling around the island, without it feeling like information overload. The stops we had on our journey were excellent - from the traditional village and firewalking they really do it!! to the Blue Lagoon perfect water and our food stops... wow. The restaurant we stopped at for lunch was perfect. I absolutely recommend this day tour.
i had a great time experiencing Vanuatu with my fun and friendly tour guide Baptiste! Definitely a must do tour! I had 4 days in Vanuatu as a solo traveller and this was a really fun day. This tour has something for everyone from seeing a Cultural village and watching traditional dancing/walking over hot coals, to being off the beaten track and driving past local villages seeing the ladies wash clothes in a creek, to swimming in the Blue Lagoon/jumping off swing ropes like Tarzan, trying traditional dishes at the lunch feast on the beach to going to where Survivor was filmed. Not to mention getting the chance to meet the locals! It's a non-rushed island time full day adventure and it was so interesting to learn about all the culture from Baptiste who is very knowledgeable and funny. It's the perfect way to see a lot in one day and also be in air conditioning! No regrets booking this tour!!
This tour was amazing! It was one of the highlights of our 18 day South Pacific Cruise. When you visit the village, please take note of the donation box in the center of the show area. Many people went back to the van before we noticed it. These villagers ask for nothing and share so much with you. Although I will admit that the vehicle we rode around in was a bit overcrowded and uncomfortable all of that was forgotten due to the most fabulous tour guide one could ever ask for. Badis was not only knowledgeable about the island but he was comical and entertaining. He shared many stories of growing up, information about the locals and interesting tid bits of information in addition to the island history. If you are lucky enough to secure a tour with him ask him what he thought about his first visit to a McDonalds restaurant. Hysterical! I highly recommend this tour and if you do go.... enjoy!
This was a highly entertaining and pleasant tour. An off the beaten track experience, we met some interesting characters and gained an email nsightful understanding of local customs and legends.
Note for cruisers: even though you may book this tour independently, you need to go to the ship-booked tours end of the wharf turn right on leaving the ship.
We were assigned driver Jimmy and tour guide Justin.
Our ship arrived into port a little late but we were quickly ferried away from the port which was quite hectic which we were thankful for.
We really enjoyed all of the stops on the tour. Highlights were the traditional village, blue lagoon, a local school and Ernest's WWII museum.
The food provided at the stops was really tasty - especially the selection of local fruits we had for morning tea at the lagoon
Justin was very informative and mixed good humour with his knowledge of the islands and we could tell from his interactions with the locals at the stops we made that this tour company also looks after the local community which was great to see.
Thanks for a great day guys, we had a slightly grumpy 3yr old with us but the attention paid to both kids was the icing on the cake.
Thanks for a great day guys - will recommend you to anyone I know travelling over this way in the future!
Was a great day out with a good driver Tony and guide Manu in a comfortable air conditioned van. Firstly we went to a village where the Chief spoke to us on the importance of family and showed how one could survive on coconuts. We also saw a demonstration of fire walking, which was very impressive. After that we drove to The beautiful Blue Lagoon for a morning tea of delicious fresh local fruit. Lunch which was also part of the tour was at a restaurant by the ocean. It was varied and the prawn curry was fantastic. The sight were lovely and very beautiful. Manu spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. As they liked Bob Marley we made up some alternative words to No Woman, No Cry - no Tony no drive, no Manu no laugh. We had a lot of fun and thought this tour was good value.
We thoroughly enjoyed this full day tour around Vanuatu. We were picked up from the wharf and first stop was at a local village where we learnt local customs and saw fire walking. Next stop was at a primary school where we visited a kindergarten classroom which was just lovely and then very close by was the Blue Lagoon which was just gorgeous and very refreshing on a hot day. Our next stop was at a roadside café where we had a basic lunch while listening to a local string band. We also managed to have a swim while waiting for our lunch. The water here was quite warm and very rocky underfoot. We then travelled to the Survivor beach and had another swim and snorkelled. This place had beautiful fish and lots of them. Suggestion would be to always wear swimming shoes as some places were quite rocky. Our tour guide Manu was very knowledgeable and often joked with our driver Patise who was quite funny too. Manu spoke very good English and was very easy to understand. Thanks Manu for making our day very enjoyable! This was definitely a tour that I will highly recommend.
The two guys operating this trip were fantastic. Ones english and the other french but both created an exciting and informative tour of port vila. Very charismatic, smart and whitty.
Maybe im guving them to much credit because the island was absolutly beautiful.
Thanks guys for showing us around.
Excellent tour guide and driver, Justin and Tony. Trip was informative and varied. Really enjoyed this tour and well worth the cost. Justin is to be commended!
