This place is missing the slick tourist speel. It missing the high cost. It is missing the package concept. It is missing the concession and tourist stalls every twenty feet. All you get is an old man and his family respectfully and kindly telling you how the islanders lived in the traditional manner. Because of that I rate it as... More

Thankful we took the ship's tour to Ekasup Village, where forest people live a subsistence existence with local knowledge. Our guide, "C4", was articulate and humorous, providing excellent detail about local history and practices. Deep in the forest, the area is not as hot as in more exposed areas. We learned how to make fishing nets from spider webs and... More

This is a good experience to learn about the native life of Vanuatu. They put on a show for tourist, I don't think that they are actually still living in this village. That being said, it was very interesting to hear about their lifestyle of the past. They were entertaining and it was especially nice to see all the young... More

Went on a tour with a group from the cruise ship, our tour guide was Ellen Toka, and she was excellent with her very informative and educational talk. Very passionate about Vanuatu and the South Pacific, very professional in her mannerism etc. I learnt so much about the culture, village, warriors, had my photo taken with the Chief of the... More

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.
