    Awesome day at lelepa island
    Our family of 6 from nz spent a day with vila hope on lelepa island, it was the highlight of our pacific Island cruise. The snorkeling felt like we were in finding Nemo, it was so clear, with amazing colorful coral and fish. The people were very friendly, kind and well organized. thank you :)
    Thank you for the great review. It was a pleasure to meet you all. Lelepa Island definitely is an amazing place to snorkel. We hope you come back to visit us again very soon.

    Amazing day.. highly recommend!
    Wonderful day tour around Efate (Port Vila). Reef Zoological, Rarru Waterfalls, Blue Lagoon, School visit, Chocolate factory & markets. Our tour guide and driver (Sharon & Junior) were absolutely Amazing!! So enthusiastic, knowledgeable and great at answering all of the kids questions. Lots of sharing local stories and traditions. They were very funny and engaging too!! We all felt very safe with the driver. They accommodated all of our requests and went above and beyond. Lunch and bottled water were also provided. A fabulous day. Highly recommend!
    Thank you so much for the great review. Please come back again so we can explore more in Port Vila and make new memories.

    Just an amazing experience.
    Had an amazing experience with Villa Hope after a prior day with an alternative tour operator that was just horrible. We went the path of a private tour visiting a number of locations that we paid our own entry to. Our guide was named Brenton and it’s safe to say he made our trip to Port Vila a wonderful experience. He was so knowledgeable and stayed with us the entire time. We had a lovely air conditioned mini bus and over all the entire day was extremely pleasant. I couldn’t recommend them more if you want an enjoyable day filled with memories. Thankyou Brenton for sharing your knowledge and our day with us, we won’t forget it. Steve

    Snorkeling at hideaway island was the best
    We came off a cruise ship & booked this tour independently as it’s cheaper than booking through the cruise ship. We had a small group of 4 in our van which was great. It was beautiful weather. We had the lovely Lani as our tour guide & Johnathon as our driver. Our favourite spot was snorkelling at Hideaway island, lots of fish & we saw the underwater post office, my 11yo loved it. Then we went to see the turtles, it’s not a sanctuary but a petting zoo. We really felt sorry for those poor turtles getting poked & prodded & lifted out of the water. My daughter who is a real animal lover actually got quite upset about it. Lunch was fairly ordinary there, but Lani managed to get us some from the outdoor kitchen area. Then we went to Blue lagoon, which I could imagine would be quite beautiful usually but 1/2 the cruise ship was there, so very crowded. Still nice to have a swim tho. A bit of litter about the place. My daughter somehow found a men’s ring on the bottom of the lagoon, even tho visibility was poor. I gave it to Lani our tour guide as who knows whom it belonged to or how long it had been there. But a few hours later we were waiting in line with a few hundred people to get one of the tender boats back to the ship & the guy in front of us mentioned he lost his wedding ring in the blue lagoon. I couldn’t believe it, what are the chances. So I went & asked a security person at the port who called hope villa tours & they rang around & got the wedding ring back to the guy (it was his!) just as he was boarding the last tender boat. What a fantastic story, & thank you so much Lani & Hope Villa tours! It was a fantastic day. But a bit rushed as the cruise ship didn’t allow much time at port, which is a shame as I really wanted to see more of Vanuatu at a more relaxed pace.
    Thank you for sharing your day with Vila Hope Tours. We hope you come back again sometime soon to have more adventures with us. Take care.

We had a wonderful day with Zac. We took trip option 2 and as the schools were shut we replaced that with turtle feeding and lunch there. We also fitted an extra stop in at Tanna coffee on the way home which extended our day until 5:30. We fitted everything in and were never hurried at any location. Zac has been doing this for a number of years and you feel he knows everyone on the island. He is happy to share his knowledge of the history, the agriculture, the different people groups and the best way to enjoy the experience. Van is air-conditioned and comfortable. Thanks Zac for a great day.

We used Vila Hope tours for all of our day trips and transfers and can't rate them highly enough! All service personelle were professional but also able to have a good laugh with us, making us feel right at home. They were able to provide us with great local knowledge and insight. I highly recommend Vila Hope Tours, particularly Zack as he was great company to be around :)

Fantastic tour with Vila Hope. We had a day tour whilst visiting on a cruise ship. We did duty free shopping at Fung Kuei, swimming at Blue Lagoon and Rarru River Falls and visit to Reef Zoological wildlife centre, which included BBQ lunch. We also had fruit platters at the other locations. Bottle Water was available free. Van was nice and air conditioned. Staff, lovely and friendly. Very knowledgeable about local area.
Cost $100 per person. Paid at end of tour
Lovely family run business. Would definitely recommend

We had an awesome day tour with Villa Hope. We chose option 5 which covered everything we wanted to achieve in one day and it was a very reasonable price considering what it included. It was a door to door service which made the tour easy for us. We had a one year old travel with us and he lasted the entire day. Steven was a fun and informative tour guide. It was my birthday and Steven organized and surprised me with a birthday cake. I would definitely recommend doing option 5 when visiting Vanuatu.

Absolutely Amazing. I booked a tour prior to my cruise from Australia to Vanuatu. All contact and messaging was easy and care free.
We had a full day tour from 9.30am until 9pm. Visited Duty Free, Blue Lagoon, Turtle Sanctuary and Hideaway Island. We ended at the Beach Bar for the Fire Show - this was fantastic!
A gorgeous morning tea of fresh fruit and a super tasty bbq lunch was all included.
This day tour was the highlight of my entire trip.
Zac, our tour guide, was amazing, funny and informative. They were very well organised and the entire day was hassle free. I can’t recommend them more highly!

We booked a shore tour with Vila Hope Tours while on a recent cruise to Vanuatu, for our Port Vila stop. From beginning to end the experience was easy and professional. Our guides Chuck and Louise were amazing. They were friendly, professional and a heap fun. We did their 'Package 1' tour which included a visit to the Blue Lagoon, Naiwe Beach Turtle Sanctuary and Rarru Falls. Anyone looking for a fantastic day out with a friendly professional team, don't hesitate to contact Sakari at Vila Hope Tours. We have no hesitation in using them again if we go back to Port Vila.

The tour provided was a private tour with just our group of seven on a mini bus, and even though the weather wasn't that co-operative, the day spent with Chuck and Louise was a highlight of our trip!

Simon was our tour guide for the day. What he didn't know about the island wasn't worth knowing. He gave us great insight to the history and traditions of the island. The lunch at the local village was great as was the cool off in the beautiful blue ocean there. The stop at Gideon's landing for a spot of snorkelling was wonderful. Felt like we were in an aquarium. Thanks for a great day out Simon.

Words can't do justice to the extraordinary service supplied by Villa Hope to me and my son Lachie. After riding out the twin Cyclones ( Judy and Kevin) and no flights yet scheduled back to Sydney. Villa Hope managed to put together a half day tour for us and a few others from our Hotel. Steve our guide was fantastic informative, upbeat and friendly. They arranged a visit to the Blue Lagoon, a local beach and the finale was Lunch and Turtles at Naiwe. This in itself was amazing but the truly amazing part was this. Air Vanuatu scheduled a flight back to Sydney with only a few hours notice. After being contacted by our Hotel the owners came across the island, picked up me and Lachie, got us back to the Holiday Inn, waited for us to pack and then got us to the airport all in time for us to get tickets ( which we hadn't been assigned yet). They even offered to wait at the airport for us in case we struggled to get on the flight. Best service ever!! Hope the others enjoyed the Turtles and Lunch!
