A Recent Review of this tour

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I can highly recommend it for anyone wishing to gain an insight into the "real" Tonga. We were very interested to see the local school and hospital, we also visited a local plantation and had fruit straight from the tree/bush. Beautiful! Hainite also shared with us a wealth of knowledge about life on Tonga which was great. We visited a beautiful church as well as the yacht club for some stunning views. We shared a fresh fruit picnic lunch in a lovely spot which was great.
