This was excellent. You see so many 'cultural experiences' advertised that are not even third rate. This one is based arond a village experience and shows with practical demonstrations how the villagers catch wildlife and fish as well as using plants for medicines, including a good understanding of village life, how tribes and villages work today. There was also a... More

What a great experience!!! It is a definite must do when you visit Vanuatu... My husband and I were picked up from our hotel and returned afterwards by these lovely people and were entertained from start to finish. Our host had a great sense of humour which made the experience all the more enjoyable. Loved hearing about their village and... More

Our guide was good and the overall village tour and cultural experience very informative. The welcoming party was pretty scary and we all enjoyed the roasted papaya and banana served.

We arrived early one morning (9am) and it was clear we were the first visitors of the day. The four of us were the only ones in the tour and although it was a little shorter than normal we got to see/hear all the stories and see the village components.

We did the Ekasup tour with two 7 year olds. Several others had apparently booked but didn't make the trip so there were literally only the three of us but they still did the full experience which was great. The kids loved learning about the traditional village life in Vanuatu and the guide was fantastic. Articulate, informative, friendly and happy... More

A must see attraction for first time visitors to Vanuatu. This was 3000v per adult or around $36 AUD - the kids were free. We all really enjoyed this tour - learning about traditional life in Vanuatu. As we were walking through the village we were surrounded by warriors chanting at us with their spears - it was quite a... More

We visited Ekasup Village as a shore tour when our cruise stopped at Port Vila for the day. This cultural experience was excellent and gave us a great insight into the tribe and learnt how they hunted, traditional medicines, cooking methods etc. You are led to different parts of the village by the chief and have warriors that jump out...

My wife and I are both 76 and a little limited by arthritis, etc, but thoroughly enjoyed two visits to the award-winning Ekasup cultural village. On a Friday night our bus picked us up and our group of 25 or so drove to the village site near Vila. Our arrival was heralded by a conch shell sound, then challenges by... More

I went to the Friday night feast which I enjoyed although it is clearly put on for tourists of course. I was picked up at my hotel and taken to the village where you wait for the ceremonial approval to enter by the Chief. We were led down some paths by a villager blowing a conch shell. In the main...
