Luke was very knowledgeable and filled us in on all the history and recent events. A great relaxing day seeing some of the best sites that... More

On the first day we did the champagne beach tour which included a blue hole and visit to port orly, unfortunately we didn't go to million dollar point like we had expected to bug it was still great. The second day we did a half day village tour which I can't recommend more highly as was fantastic.

I wanted to see more of Santo than Luganville and my resort. I found Paradise Tours on Tripadvisor and contacted Luke by email before my arrival. Luke was prompt to reply and I organised two tours. The first was a full day tour along the East Coast Road to Champagne Beach and Port Orly, also visiting Matevulu Blue Hole and... More

Cost was 8000 VUV. Our guide took us to Million Dollar Point, Blue Hole at Malevulu, Champaigne Beach, Velite Plantation, and Port Olry. The highlight was the majestically beautiful Blue Hole, with its rope swing and fresh water fish. Our guide was very knowledgeable and stopped whenever we asked to take random photos. Ate lunch at Port Olry and the... More

We were lucky enough to have Lino take us to the Millennium Cave tour and then on our own private tour to Port Olry. He was a fantastic guide with a great sense of humour and wonderful local knowledge. We were picked up from our hotel in the morning and our first stop was Riri blue hole, then on to... More

However the tour guide bring us back 2 hour earlier.  And the tour guide know nothing about it and cannot help. Luckily, the day after, we will go to Luganville, which is very near to Champagne Bay. Then the guide... More

Being independent and usually hiring a vehicle wherever we travel, this trip to Santo for a few days we decided to let somebody else do the driving. Willie from Paradise Tours picked us up from Coral Quays on time at 0900. There was just Willie and the two of us for the whole day, no time limit. Nothing was planned... More
