testimonial

Hi Christine,
We are back from our holiday and I just wanted to say thank you so much. We had a great time in Honiara. Our driver was lovely and informative and didn’t rush us. Please thank Kym. She was very helpful particularly as our ship was late getting in but she handled everything smoothly. P&O did put some similar tours on in the end but I am glad we went through your company.
Regards, Christine

TESTIMONIALS

The tour was everything I hoped it would be. This was a very intense & emotional day. It was also very powerful to share the van with the 4 other guys as we went thru the battlefields. Kelly (our Guadalcanal guide) was absolutely fantastic.
Thanks for all your help.

Hi Christine
The tour was really good thanks. Our guide was really knowledgeable and obviously had a passion for the subject. He also gave us some flexibility e.g. going to different places and a choice of where to go for lunch. Overall we were really happy with it - thanks for arranging it!
Thanks

TESTIMONIAL

Hi Emily, 

Sue and I had a great time on Sunday. Thoroughly enjoyed the personalised itinerary and the Western Battlefield was really quite interesting. Loved learning about the history.  The village experience was great too. Floyd and Kim were full of knowledge and pointed out lots of interesting stuff.

Sue was feeling a bit car sick and Floyd and Kim were very considerate in allowing as much time as we needed in the fresh air as well as going to buy a soft drink.  Also loved having Michael along for part of the ride and him sharing his local village knowledge particularly about custom medicine.  We also visited his butterfly farm which was very  fascinating.

Would highly recommend this tour and group to anyone visiting Honiara.

Cheers - Dani (Varsity Lakes, Gold Coast) & Sue (North Brisbane)

(Dani and Sue combined the western battlefield tour with the Kakabona Village tour.) 

 

Although we try to follow the itinerary at times tours are subject to change due to weather and access by local communities.
