Amazing set up and no wonder why Rober Louis fell in love with Samoa. It's so beautiful and our guide was really nice and funny. A must to see when in Samoa.

Nothing provided by the guide was unique and that you couldn't have got from google! We waited a long time for the guide to come and was ushered to the gift shop while we waited, even though there were no one else there.
