Definitely a bucket list activity...unreal! Pay the money and do it! Takes about an hour from Lenakel, we booked through Hugh at the Tanna Lodge and Ken our driver was the best. HAVE TO DO IT!

Amazing experience on the rim of this active volcano. Just a bit scary! The constant billowing smoke and rumbles make you aware of the power of nature.

Amazing experience standing on the edge of the Volcano rim. Very easy short walk to the top for anyone mobile. Take warm clothing/jacket. It gets very cold standing on the edge for a hour waiting for sundown. (The warm air coming out of the volcano causes a strong cold up draft on your back.)

We went on a tour from our hotel White Grass Sands Resort - it left around 2 pm - open Landcover trip across the mountainous and fabulous terrain to the volcanic ash field of Mt Yasur. Once there we were given a cultural introduction to the mountain, and locals explained their understanding of the volcano and the gods - and... More

Let me start with the most important reason for writing - the guides. We met Nancy and Nancy. These two ladies are the best! They love a joke, can match anyone's wit, they are warm and friendly, but they are also very knowledgeable, and ever watchful. They are beautiful ladies, and I was very sorry at the end of the...

Absolutely incredible. I don't know how anyone could experience this and not have it be a 5 star experience. If you are limited in film or battery in any way, I recommend waiting until it starts to get dark. Much better when the sun goes down.

A hard walk to get up to the rim But it is a volcano and the hard walk melts away once you reach the rim. In the day you see the visual "shockwave" before she rumbles on average around every 3 min however as the sun goes down it livens up with the cooler air and you get to see... More

Went with AirTaxi's overnight tour. First had doubts as the costs were so high, but after the tour, I am glad to have done it with zero regrets. I won't describe too much of the volcano has there are plenty of reviews doing so already, but would definitely recommend doing the overnight tour as the volcano is so much more... More

This is high up on my list of great things to do. The power and ferocity of the volcano can't be described, you have to be there. Absolutely a must do, even if a bit pricey it is worth every cent. My recommendation is to definitely do a late afternoon evening tour. The explosions of lava come to life when... More

Thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the edge watching mother nature at its best. The only thing we did not like was the fact that it was a timed tour and we had to leave early evening to return down the mountain. The show is far more spectacular after dark and because had to return with the tour we only had 30... More
