“Interesting but not value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

I came on my own hoping to spend time looking around but it is only really set up for visiting groups, they charged me 3,000 vatu as an individual which I thought was expensive for a one hour visit. It was interesting but no information displays or signs to read just cultural displays and at times a little bit naff. I went to other places such as the secret garden which were much better value for money i.e. 500 vatu and you could spend time wondering around reading displays.

“A real look at history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

A short drive from the city to the Cultural Center. As in the forest, cans of bug spray were available for those who wanted to use them before going on a short walk through to the exhibits. Local guide provided not only verbal information, but specific examples and seemed to be genuinely committed to providing accurate historical information. Recommend going if you have a interest in history and culture.

“Highlight of our trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

At first I felt this was an uncomfortable tourist excursion but it wasn't. Hearing the story of the local tribe and being able to enjoy their customs was amazing. It really is a glimpse into another world. The food was excellent and the entertainment amazing. A must-do!

A true Ni-Vanuatu experience. The guide knowledgeable & full of fun. The tour genuine and entertaining. The food plentiful and you get to try true islander food & kava.
