“Round island tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Highly recommend this tour. If possible take along some pens, note books or anything you can think of that would help a little village school that has nothing. The children at Eton village school that you will visit are just delightful.

The scenery around the island is fantastic. Food is included in price of trip.

We did this trip with Frazer, and what an experience. His knowledge and personality will make your day an adventure you won't forget....allow all day for this tour approx 8 hours.

Also check out their web site as they have more tours available. Lololima cascade tour is also recommended. A lot of stairs to climb though, but no one is in a hurry so you can take your time.

If you want to visit national museum keep in mind it is shut Saturday and Sunday....

Regards Alan an Margaret Coombes

“All day Port Villa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Have to thank Gilbert & Justin for an amazing day in Port Villa, my sister and I had an amazing day with them as our tour guides they made the day fun and shared their passion for their beautiful island and helped us understand the culture. The cascades were amazing and the lookouts they took us to were breathtaking. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were happy to accommodate us even when we took our time. Just remember to bring your camera and swimmers and off course some water I would thoroughly recommend Atmosphere tours

“Amazing experience with Frazer from Atmosphere in Vila”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou for such an amazing day Frazer and Christian you are a credit to this business!!! Your passions and knowledge for this beautiful island and its people are one that we will never forget. We had a family group of 10 ranging in ages from 4 to adults which you took a personal intrest in each and everyone of us and made us feel very welcome. The Loloima Cascades were breathtaking as was the Aquana Resort where we enjoyed a delicious lunch (although if you have dietry requirements suggest a particular meal that is easy for them to cook), the children swung from the tree swing and went swimming in the beautiful lagoon. But the most humbling experience we encounted was at the School house. This was exactly what we were wanting to experience for our children. The kindness and love that is being shown to these children to a credit to their teacher Mary and her sister who is helping these children who would not be able to go to school.
Thankyou again for the most amazing day. The Ahrens and Price Family (Goldcoast, Australia)

“All day Efate Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We went on the whole day round Island tour. I'm not really into tours and was a bit apprehensive about a whole day. We had Fraser, Marco and Watson for our guides. What a great day! They made it so much fun and I learnt heaps about Vanuatu which was my main reason for booking. There was no rushing about at all, in fact it was a really relaxing day. A big thank you to the guys ;))
Will definitely be recommending Atmosphere.

“Where's blue lagoon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We had out tour with Atmosphere on the 6th August. WE were picked up on time by tour guide Alfie and driver who call himself Speed. Alfie was a very good tour guide, informative and spontaneous. Speed was a good driver though a bit concerned when uses mobile phone while driving and sped up on rough road, this worried us as there were 2 children on board. From the village, we were delighted to learn the culture, dances, umu, fire walk etc. IT WAS SO DISAPPOINTING when we were told the blue lagoon will be skipped, shame shame they should have informed us ahead or return 1/4 of the price we paid. We went instead to Eton beach. We visited the school where we met with the local students and teachers and gave some school supplies for the kids and it was an amazing experience as the children were so lovely. The whole tour was good enough, but still lingers on the disappointment, we've never had an experience of the blue lagoon grrrrrrrrrrrr.
