Thomas and Noah were fantastic. We were lucky enough to be the only 2 people on the tour. Visiting a range of local places and getting the history of the Vanuatu people made this a trip to remember! Thanks guys!!!

This is an excellent tour around Efate, and I'm so glad we didn't hire a car instead!! I can't imagine a better guide than Tom. He and Kiki (our driver) showed us places and interesting things we surely would have missed if self-driving. We enjoyed...More
