This "step on step off" service from the the cruise ship terminal is hassel free and great value for your money CFX8000/ adult. It runs all day, every 20 min, stopping at 4 stops before reaching the water taxi, then returning to the ship to start again. You can jump on and off the bus as many times throughout the day as you like. Water taxi is one return trip to duck island per/adult. The water visibility became cloudy from the heavy rain that we had that day. however, we still saw dozens of triopitcal fish and coral. Ware footware as beach and surf has broken up old coral amounst the sand which can cut you.

Dear Andy S,

Sorry about the rain, it's now the beginning of our fresh season.

Thank you so much for taking time to review our Hop-On Hop-off services, our prices are 1000 XFP per Adult and 500 XFP for kids instead of the 8000 XFP you mentioned.
As always our prices will always be much cheaper than any cruise ship.

By booking with us you are also helping out our local economy by providing us with jobs.

Check out our website L Y V A I . C O M, we have a variety of packages online where you can book in advance, including several options with special prices on all our offers.

Please come back and visit us again anytime.

Enjoy the rest of the cruise and God Bless.


The Red Team (Lyvai).

Hi
I booked the hop on hop off bus and the tickets to Duck Island with this company instead of on the cruise ship. For 2 adults and 5 kids we saved at least $200 AUD. It was well run, the service was reliable and easy to use, and we were very happy with Duck Island

Dear KerryJames78,


We're glad that you had a great time at Duck island. Thank you so much for choosing our local company and taking time to review it.

Indeed, all tours and packages from Lyvai are much cheaper than the ones offered by any cruise liners and when you book with us, the money that you spend stays in the country.

We also have a website L Y V A I . C O M where you can book online in advance, including several options with special discounts on our tours and packages.

Please come back and visit us again anytime.

Enjoy the rest of the cruise and God Bless.

Even though I had purchased tickets online in Australia prior to my cruise; this did not guarantee that my partner and I were going on the train tour. We decided to book on the afternoon tour at 1:15pm, as we were planning on doing something else that morning. We returned to the meeting point on time, and were informed that because there were not enough people booked, they were cancelling the tour. Why is this my fault? I purchased a ticket and expected to be taken on the tour. They asked me why I didn't go this morning. It didn't suit us, and you were advertising a second tour. So we did not get to experience New Caledonia's sights, and it was a disappointing end to the day. Very poor service from money hungry tour company.

Dear Miss Fendi,

Thank you for taking the time to review our services. We apologise that you didn't get a sightseeing tour with us on the train.

If it was up to me I would have offered you another package on the spot.
Providing tourists with the best service and fun has always been our priority.
This issue has been addressed with the train tour manager and it won't happen again.

If you come back to Noumea, I would like to have the opportunity to speak with you directly, so please ask for the CEO of Lyvai.
We hope to see you again in the future, I wish you all the best and GOD Bless.

Dear JayJay,

we thank you very much for your feedback on our Hop-On Hop-Off service.
For Nouméa it is indeed a good and cheap way of transportation for those who come back here regularly, and for everybody
who would like to go on with the day after one of our fabulous guided tours like the Green Train & the Country Tour.

In order to reach easily the highlights Duck Island and Aquarium, the Hop-On Hop-Off wrist bands come automatically with these two attractions if purchased on-line at "l y v a i . c o m" or directly with us at the passenger terminal.

JayJay, we hope to welcome you soon back here in Nouméa and once again thank you so much for commenting on us
at Tripadvisor's. This keeps us going !


All the best,
The Red Team

All in one place tours, markets, passport stamp, great to compare prices of tours.
great new service the red doubledeckers bus, it does the same route as the choo train that is offered on ship at a cheaper price shows you all of Noumea, great for the first timer, do a loop in 90mins then you can do hop on hop off to where you want to spend more times.

Tour guides very friendly helpful and informative.
Give it a go
$30 can pre book too

Tried the choo too but preferred the double decker bus
no flumes smells and higher on top deck to take great photos. also does 2 stops for photo ops.

The Red Double Decker bus belongs to a company called Noumea Double Decker (NOUMEA 2 D) who are partners with Noumea Discovery, since they work together this comment should be on the Tchou Tchou Train, Noumea (Owned by Nouméa Discovery) page instead Lyvai.

The LYVAI company only owns coach buses, Hop-On Hop-Off shuttles, Private shuttles and Green Trains. Please remove this comment immediately and re-post it on the appropriate page.
Thanks You
