    Our tour guide, Vivian, was excellent. Her knowledge of Noumea and New Caledonia was both informative and very interesting. Our tour guide showed compassion to all of the tourists and ensured we were safe wherever we walked highlighting if the paths were uneven. The fact that our tour guide added her quaint sense of humour at times, was an added bonus.
