What people are saying about Port Vila

Very nice experience! The guide looked for us in front of the cruise ship and we had 3 stops! The first stop the beautiful blue lagoon where you could jump with a liana in the water and then there is a table with very good exotic fruits! Then we went to see and touch the giant turtles and we swam in the sea and then a fairly simple barbecue. And then we went into the jungle with a beautiful river and waterfall and we were able to swim! It was heavenly!

The bus tour was great and the tour guide , Moses, was very informative and funny. The tour covered a large area and was good value for money. The swimming stop at the blue lagoon was refreshing and the swimming with turtles was amazing. Lunch was very good too.

Comfortable meeting point near the grand hotel, 15/20 min by car to get to the mountain. Professional staff available and nice. The route lasts around an hour with several zip lines. Stunning observation points.

Excellent and really a good ride to do. The beautiful turtles and the buggy too. The transportation with Moses was great.

2H ride on a river without current and obstacles. Absence of strong sensations but immersion in the luxuriant vegetation.
