Itinerary

When does my tour start?

Tour starts approx. 45 minutes after the cruise ship berths.

When do I return to port after my tour/excursion?

The tour is 6.5 hours in length so you will be returned in plenty of time for your cruise ship departure. All tour times are based on Shore time (i.e. local time, - not ship time)

Your 6.5-hour tour commences at 8:30am, giving you an ample amount of time to enjoy the endless cultural appeals of Vanuatu.  You will be picked up from the Wharf as you prepare to see and learn all about the island’s history. 

Your first stop will be the Iarofa Cultural Village, where you will sample and learn about the country’s captivating village life. Here, the locals will teach you everything you need to know about the village’s various herbal concoctions, and perform a traditional dance – along with the common grass skirts and all! If that’s not enough entertainment for you, then prepare for the heated grand finale of the daring fire-walking display.

Your next port of call will be extremely warm and welcoming, self-funded Eratap Village Kindergarten School. Discover the more deprived aspects that savage parts of the little island, as you are taken on an intimate tour of the classrooms where the students receive their tutelage and given the opportunity to play football with the kids during their break.

Move on to the mesmeric Aquana Beach Resort that captures the perfect island getaway – where you’ll be provided with lunch and refreshments.

Discover Port Vila’s ultimate scenic attractions at your next stop. Afterwards, indulge in a sporadic shopping spree as you’re taken on some duty free shopping in the city.
