We had no tour planned for Port Vila and met another couple who were discussing a tour with Mckenzie on the wharf so decided to team up and we could not have been lokked after any better Mckenzie took us to the Blue Lagoon and Turtle sanctuary and Cascade water falls, along the way he stopeed at a road side stall and purchased drinking Coconuts for us to taste.

Macka is one extraordinary person! We had the pleasure of spending an entire day with him after we booked a private tour. Macka completely tailored the tour to where we wanted to go. We ended up visiting the Aelan Chocolate Factory, the Rarru Falls, to see the turtles (absolute hit with both our four year old daughter and us), a local school to hand out some school supplies we had brought with us, and to the blue lagoon. Macka was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and more than happy to answer our numerous questions! He also knew so many incredible little spots to go and was so patient waiting for us to spend as much time as we wanted at each location. We loved Macka so much that we booked our airport transfers through him too. Macka and his tours had been recommended to us and he lived up to all expectations and more! All future trips to Vanuatu will include a tour or two with Macka. Thanks so much for an awesome day!

Fantastic!!
Macka was great van was clean pick ups on time
Doesn’t just take you to all the Well known spots but a few that are off the beaten track.
We booked for one day but ended up doing another day I recommend booking the whole van for yourself/group that way you can do what you want and only $9000 Vatu
Do yourself a favour and take a tour with Maca you won’t be disappointed

Following some great reviews we booked Mackenzie for when our cruise ship docked at Port Villa for the day. The service was excellent right from the first contact. He recommended a few stops he could make, and was happy to build the tour around what we wanted to see.
On arrival we were greeted by Mackenzie who held a sign with my name on it. The van was spacious and airconditioned. We left the dock fairly quickly and beat the crowds to our first stop - the Blue Lagoon.
Along the way, Mackenzie filled us in on facts about Port Villa and the locals, and was more than happy to answer any questions.
We had a massive fruit platter at the Blue Lagoon, then onto the waterfalls which are amazing. From there to the turtles/sharks and a cooked lunch. Then back to the markets and the cruise ship.
Overall a fantastic day and the highlight of our cruise. We never felt rushed and returned to the ship with plenty of time to spare. Approx 6 hour tour...great value. Definitely Recommend.

Mackenzie was great, greeted at the gates holding our name up. Shell necklace on arrival, which cleared through NZ Customs. Lovely newish air conditioned van. Took us to duty free first, to avoid the rush later on. Then on to the blue lagoon for a dip and lovely photos, along with a stunning morning fruit refreshment package. Then off to the waterfalls, and turtles, where we also had a cooked meal prepared for us. Finished off with the markets, back down at the boat. We found Mackenzie a trust worthy, friendly family man, who made our day! $85 AUD pp all food and entrance fees included.
