Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Happy, friendly and helpful. Teeta was our driver for our airport shuttle, booked transport to town and a tour. He was always on time, was great company and flexible to stop at different places. Recommend him for getting around the island.

We had a fantastic time with Teeta taking our small family tour on airport transfers but more importantly on a day tour seeing the best of Efate Island. Great local knowledge, punctual, huge smile and generosity. Nothing was too much. So lucky to have him as our guide.

Tetaa picked us up from the airport to take us to our apartments. Tetaa was always on time when he took us on any tours. We went on a couple of tours and also had a day tour with him where he pointed out and stopped to look at various cultural things as well as taking us to neat places that we visited.
Our departure time from the airport was 6.30am....!! but Tetaa was there for us at 4.20am. As an added note Tetaa's brother does fishing charters and my husband went out with him and had a great morning. By the time we left, Tetaa was a friend and a valued guide.

We had a nice time on this tour. They were there even though our ship arrived significantly later that intended and never suggested our trip would be cut short.
Our driver was accommodating but lacked a little when touring to tell us about this lovely place. The drive was willing to change our plans on short notice (places to go to) although seemed a little put out when some of the group wanted to go back to other shop early. The returning people felt obligated to tip generously to ensure it didn't impact on the remainder of the group.

We understand that the quality is different in this country. The limo was a little old and tired. It did smell fusty and could do with airing and an air freshener inside.

We found correspondence slow with the company leading up to the event and it would have been good if they were at the ship to greet us or communicate where pick up would be as we had advised we had elderly people with our party. We were walking around asking for our tour for about 30 mins in the humid heat.

We booked a day trip around Efate. Tita the driver was fantastic and we enjoyed his company for the day. We also had hotel transfers included with our stay at Vanuatu Beachfront Apartments. Always arrived on time, did not feel rushed at all for our day trip and were encouraged to spend as much time as we wanted at each location.

Thanks for taking the time to lave a review. We are glad you had a great day tour and got to see all the amazing sights of Efate. Drop us a line next time you find yourself in Vanuatu.

We got in contact with Damien and from the get go he was helpful and accommodating for our many requests. We booked the zipline tour through Damien for the Tuesday after which we were able to spend the afternoon relaxing at the Vanuatu Beachfront Apartments. Afterwards we walked over to the beach bar for pizzas for the kids. The day of my husband's birthday we had a full day private tour where Tita, our driver for the day took us to the chocolate factory, the blue lagoon, the turtle sanctuary and finally hideaway island. That evening we booked the limousine for collection at our resort and then we were delivered in style at the beachfront apartments for an incredible seafood platter and cake. This was served to us in a private and gorgeously decorated beach setting. The staff were incredible. The food was spectacular. Damien even accommodated our children's fussy tastes and let them eat off the normal menu as they don't eat seafood. At the end of the evening we were delivered back to our resort in the limousine. It was a perfect day. Cannot recommend Damien and his staff more highly.

We booked a private tour of Efate for the day prior to leaving Australia. Was able to make payment to an Aussie bank account (saving on Fx transaction fees). The night before our tour one of our party felt ill and we had to cancel our tour. It was rescheduled without question for a later date. Great service, friendly staff and very knowledgeable.

Arranged a transfer from Eratap to the Havannah. Unfortunately I realised I had booked for the wrong date. Called Damien and he sorted out straight away.
Driver turned up at the expected time the following day. We have used Melanesian Tours before and would certainly recommend them. Great vehicles and knowledable and friendly drivers.

I wanted to book a tour while we are visiting from a cruise in February. I have never had such an issue trying to give a tour company money. I initially tried to email them which would not go through so I messaged them on social media and they were responsive and told me they would send an email to me with information on how to book the tour. I never received the email which they acknowledged so I sent another message to follow up again they said they would email it. I have since sent two or three more messages and no one has yet to respond but did view the message. At this time I wouldn’t even book a tour in fear that they wouldn’t even show up if they can’t even communicate to book a tour. I’m very disappointed as I was set on only doing a tour with them based upon previous reviews.

Hi, sorry we could not arrange this, we realised we had entered your email address incorrectly into our system so our correspondence never made it to you. We realised this today so I sent you a messenger. Sorry about the communication issues. I hope you have made alternative arrangements. Thanks, Damien
