Traveled to Nuku'alofa on the Pacific Aria. This was the main place I wanted to visit. Everyone talks about Fiji but this is the place to visit. Our shore tour was really well run and covered a lot of what we wanted to see. The locals in Tonga are really friendly and make you want to return for a holiday. Beautiful place to visit.

Tours informative, some sites compromised by commercialism and litter.
Tonga is a naturally beautiful place but a lot of plastic / paper litter spoils scenic and historic attractions.
