A Recent Review of this tour

This was truly one of the highlights of our 5 weeks in the South Pacific. Ani is an amazing guide- personable, knowledgeable and a great island host. At every turn she offered suggestions and options we could choose from and every one was a hit. From highlights like the Island museum, botanical garden and snorkeling to the little things like tasting dragon fruit and coconut milk and the best ice cream in the world and pointing out all the local plants, our group of 6 could not possibly be more pleased.
