Owner description: The best way to discover Efate is by doing a round island tour with a local. Manples Tours is owned and operated by Jonah John (JJ) and his wife, Violet. It's a full-day tour that takes in the main attractions from the comfort of an air-conditioned bus. JJ is bilingual (French/English) and an experienced, knowledgeable guide. Price includes pickups from your hotel, entrance fees and lunch.

JJ and driver Robin John were 100% professional-very safe driving and JJ's infectious enthusiasm, always smiling and his knowledge made our day trip very memorable and worth every cent. Highly recommended and pleased to have spent money with a private local company.

So glad we chose JJ Manples Tour for the wealth of local interest he gave us as we drove around on our half day tour. The sights of Efate are probably the same on every tour but having the local customs and history explained by JJ made the day for us. Please support local ventures in Vanuatu.

We booked a half day tour with JJ. He picked us up from the wharf near our hotel and as we were the only people that day, he rearranged the tour to suit us. His driver was very good, we felt safe. He provided refreshments at the blue lagoon. He was very informative about local sights and customs. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks JJ. Highly recommended!

This was a fantastic tour to do. JJ was extremely happy and friendly and he took us to some great places that you would not get to see or experience as a solo traveller. We would highly recommend taking this tour.

My husband and I did a Full day tour which was absolutely wonderful. The Pepeyo Cultural Village was amazing, we really enjoyed the show they put on, and getting up to dance with them was heaps of fun :) The Blue Lagoon was so beautiful, the water so clean and clear, we had a wonderful swim and fun swinging on the rope! The buffet lunch was delicious and hearty. It was really interesting seeing all the WW2 area, I had no idea so many relics would've been left behind, tanks etc, rusted sitting there with yrs of history behind them. We finished off the day with a trip to a kava bar, at my request, it was a great ending to a fabulous day. Our guide JJ was fantastic, really knowledgeable of the area and very informative. I highly recommend this tour.
