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

we were rescheduled from a morning tour to an afternoon tour due to a cruise ship arrival. Although the guide was informative and entertaining, it seemed the rest of village could not be bothered after hosting cruise ship passengers all day. there was no weaving demonstration, food preparation demonstration and the show was 6 guys playing guitars and singing two...

Not at all what we expected and not really worth the trouble getting a taxi out to see it. Some guiding around would help without feeling awkward the whole time.

Erakor village offers a rare insight into the very rich indigenous culture of Vanuatu in an interactive and fun way. We learned a lot in a short period of time. It's definitely a must do for first timers in Vanuatu just 15 minutes away from Port Vila.
