We experienced Shanniahs full day land tour and a week travelling around the islands of Milne bay. What an amazing trip! Couldn't recommend Shanniahs touring and experience more. She is very organised and experienced, and will make your tour an unforgettable experience. Highly recommend.

Just a wonderful day seeing the sights around Alotau then being welcomed into Shanniah’s village. Only 2 small minibuses - probably less than 30 people took this tour. So much better than the shore excursions arranged by the cruise ship with multiple buses and too...More
