Arrived on time and took us to the trip. Needed to confirm the schedule for the day as it was not communicated properly.

Rest of the day ran refine and the swim in the underground pool was amazing.

The caves alone were worth the trip. The guide and driver were nice but not overly knowledgeable on the history and communication was a little difficult. But overall worth the money.

We visited the caves while being on a private taxi tour. The taxi driver brought us to the caves. We were charged US$ 15 for 2 persons. I have no idea if this is normal but I think it was worth it. The entrance is a bit hard to find, but the taxi driver also guided us. It is not a large cave, but because of the mirroring in the water it was really lovely. I see now that it is possible to swim. I hope this will get forbidden quickly because it will spoil the stunning scenery. We were lucky to be just with the 3 of us in the cave. when we left, a bus lot of tourists arrived and I am sure they did not enjoy the tranquility as we did.

Well organised and pick up from the cruise ship was easy. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly but didn’t spend enough time pointing out local sights whilst travelling in the bus.
The stops we went to were very interesting and overall the trip was great value for money.

My first time swimming in an underground cave! It was so quiet, clean and cool. It was interesting there were no restrictions on what you could touch as well. A fabulous experience.

I went with Ana at Teta Tours Tonga and I’d highly recommend them!
I contacted them via Facebook and email and they were welcoming and easy to communicate with!

They picked me up from my hotel and we had such a fun day. I felt like I was part of the family and had a great experience. The caves were spectacular!

Margaret was the local girl who guided me through the caves and also swam with me and Ana and family. It was lovely being part of a group and enjoying the fresh water and amazing scenery.

Ana knew a lot about Tonga and I loved her stories and gracious manner.
She even helped me buy a traditional outfit (Kia Kia ) so that I would be wearing appropriate attire for the Tongan church service on a Sunday. (Note everything is closed on Sunday’s in Tonga for church)

I would highly recommend Teta Tours and I want to come back with my family and do all tours and no work!

We were staying at the Tanoa Dateline Hotel and through their in-house tour company Hibiscuss Tours, we took a $120 top per person, 5 hour guided tour around the island. The tour included Captain Cook landing, Terraced Tombs, , Village fishing pigs, Ha’amonga (Stonehenge), Natural Land bridge, Abel Tasman Landing, Flying Fox colony, Tsunami Rock, Blow holes, Three headed coconut palm tree but we didn’t go to the Anahulu Cave (didn’t want to!) which was also included. Sake was a good guide though some more history would have been welcome. Lunch was BBQ chicken bought at someone’s house and eaten on a roadside table later on. Tropical refreshments was a bottle of water. Sake did offer answers to all our questions on Island life and his commentary and thoughts were much appreciated. The van we went around in was a tad tired and dirty as were most of the sites that we visited – not his fault obviously, merely a reflection on Tongan standards
