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...

Highly recommend for anyone wanting an insight into village life in Vanuatu. The day tour was fantastic, the guide friendly and funny and full of interesting facts. h He alsp had lots of tools and traps to demonstrate and our only regret was it was over to soon. Recommend for anyone who is interested in local culture.

Ekasup is different to the usual traditional dancing and painted faces show. Independent village life is explained in the current environment, where the village/tribe of 500 owns its own land, is not subject to laws of Vanuatu and does not pay taxes. It is self-sufficient and its tourist presentations provide income. Tribal customs are well explained. The presentation includes cooking... More

Liked the stories and the dance, kept reasonably close to history, but did have some political agenda in the background. Good value for the experience. One of a number of villages doing this presentation.

Thanks to all the men and ladies who showed and taught us about Vanuatu and their culture. I still cannot believe eating fresh coconut off the tree in under a minute with the skills and knowlege of the operator. Please keep this going and good luck. Anthony and Peta from Brisbane.

This was a great little tour and the host was very entertaining. The short concert at the end was excellent. Well worth it!

Ekasup was the highlight of the trip. While we had come in on a cruise ship, we got our taxi driver to take us there, so the 3 of us had our own tour through (much preferable to the tour of 50+ that arrived as we were leaving). This was a very real experience of village life, and none of... More
