Well organised tour operator
I did not only do this day trip with atmosphere but also booked their airport transfers in- and outbound as well.
Every single time the pick-up was on time with the guides/drivers being cheerful and friendly. The contact worked through mail and I found the handling very professionel and reliable (something I did not experience with another operator).
The tour around the island was insightful (especially visiting the village where traditions were explained) and fun (Blue Lagoon). The included lunch was a nice break by a beautiful beach and coffee was served in the afternoon at the beach where the tv series survivor was filmed. At the end we came to a viewpoint overlooking Port Vila & Hideaway island.
Altogether it was good value for money and a pleasant experience!

Nanu and Demetrius showed us a good time on this tour. They took us to a tribe village, where they spoke about their culture. We also witnessed a native walking on a red hot burning rocks while barefooted. They dance and sang with makeshift instruments made of bamboo. We all later drove around the entire island viewing the beautiful sites plus we had lunch as well. Must see tour, especially the tribe village.

Nov 2019
What an absolute blast, we did the tour on 18/11/19. Justin, Dimitri and Max were the best hosts / tour guides you could ask for. Justin was an absolute wealth of information, he had time for everybody on the tour and nothing was any trouble to him, even when it came to explaining traditional fishing techniques and showing us the spider and letting us handle them. Could not recommend them more highly these guys are a must if you want an entertaining day out touring the island and learning about Vanuatu's culture and history.

Great Day Out!!
My husband and I were visiting Vanuatu for the first time and were looking to explore the island more. We booked this tour not knowing what to expect and it was excellent. Manu the guide was friendly, knowledgable and ensured that we were entertained all day. William was our driver and he made sure the drive was comfortable and safe for the duration of the trip. Would highly recommend this tour and especially the guide and driver! Thanks heaps guys! Great tour for those visiting for the first time!

Round island
Pretty awesome tour,the guide was lovely and very knowledgeable. We got to visit a school and listen to some children singing,got to experience cultural dancing and fire walking. We were then taken to the blue lagoon,we only had 45 minutes there which I didn’t feel was enough. After that,the guide had prepared us some fresh fruits and we continued driving to our lunch spot. After lunch we drove to a little beach cafe for coffee. Then we drove back to the ship.

The only negatives I can think of about this tour is if you are getting off a ship at the port. The process is very daunting and quite stressful,it is very disorganised. We walked although the markets and taxi drivers only to be told we had to go the other way. We then walked back through everything and was escorted into a bus where we sat for 15 minutes by our self and no one had told was happening or who they even were.
Also a little more time spent at the blue lagoon would be a bit better too. But apart from that I would recommend the tour.

Great day out.
Oct 2019
This day tour gave a great insight into the culture of Vanuatu and its natural environment. Justin was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and had a friendly personality, fabulous sense of humour and infectious laugh. Driver Basile was very safe and his dry sense of humour added to the day.
The day was unhurried, there was plenty of time to swim at Blue Lagoon. Tropical fruit was served for morning tea and lunch was a delectable array of local foods.
The only thing for management to note was that our vehicle had some sort of mechanical fault and a beep, beep sound happened all the time we were driving. We hit a few rough spots with a bang and we think the shockers on the vehicle needed looking at. Also the air con could have have been colder. It was late lunch time before we got a drink so bottled water in the vehicle would also be good.

Fantastic cultural tour
Aug 2019
Thoroughly enjoyed our day tour. John & Neil were very informative and helpful, even with shopping at the end of the day. Our bus group were friendly and spread across 5-67 years. The only disappointment was that we didn't get to visit the school as it was a weekend and school holidays.

Great tour
Our tour guide Justin gave a very detailed introduction on local culture and different facts about Vanuatu. Our driver Tam Kun (not sure if it’s the correct spelling) also had an informative chat with us during afternoon tea. I definitely had great fun touring around Efate and at the same time learnt a lot about the beauty of Vanuatu.
