In early November we visited Santo and did the river kayak / Port Olry / Champagne Beach tour. Our guide David was absolutely fabulous, and my partner and I would be very happy to recommend him. David was knowledgeable, warm, helpful, and just a really interesting guy. We loved learning about Santo, and he also gave us great insight into some local customs and culture which was very interesting for us. The trip itself was well timed, and we never felt rushed. We did a kayak trip to Matevulu Blue Hole (that bit was with Alex from Island Time Kayak Tours), then we travelled on to Port Olry for lunch with David. After lunch we went on to Champagne Beach for a snorkel. David was very chilled out, and we felt like we had plenty of time to enjoy each place. Insider tip: make sure you do this trip when there are NO cruise ships, apparently you can check this with your booking agent before you go - we had each place almost to ourselves and it was absolutely magic. A huge THANK YOU to David and Paradise Tours!

We had an outstanding tour on a port day with Luke, the owner of Paradise Tours. He picked us up promptly from the pier in his van with A/C. He offers several tours, but we wanted an authentic experience in the Vanuatan culture outside Luganville. During the tour which lasted from 9am - 3pm, we drove through many coconut plantations in addition to other plantings (taro, pineapple, etc.). First he stopped at a river and then at a "blue hole", a lovely blue fresh water spring where you can swim. They have a Tarzan-like rope hanging from a tree for those who want to swing from the dock over the water and drop in, but there were also other places to get in and out. Then we drove to Port Orly Beach at the end of the island for lunch. Most of us ordered fresh lobster with "chips" (French fries) and a salad of grated papaya soaked in lime juice and coconut milk. Some folks went swimming at the beautiful beach right there while waiting for lunch to be cooked. Then we went to Champagne Beach where we snorkeled near a jetty and saw enough fish to make it worthwhile. On the way over and back Luke stopped at fruit stands to buy us fresh pineapple and bananas and we were able to talk to the locals. Luke was a wonderful guide - very kind and considerate, even handling an electric scooter in the back of the van, getting it in and out several times, so one of the group could enjoy the tour fully.

We booked a tour through Paradise Tours and had the most AMAZING day. Started out at a Blue Hole (which we almost had to ourselves) followed by lunch at Port Orly. Decided to splash out on the local delicacy, coconut crab and weren’t disappointed! Finished up at the picturesque Champagne Beach where we snorkeled for an hour and relaxed on the white sand. Our driver David was the icing on the cake with his knowledge of the island, laughs and overall pleasant company. Thank you David

We had a a wonderful tour with our driver Chris. We snorkelled Million Dollar Point, visited the Blue Hole, Port Olry and Champagne Beach, every site was beautiful and well worth it. We were very lucky to see water music when we visited Champagne Beach. Chris is so knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions about local culture, he knows the best spots for snorkelling and coconut crab. Definitely recommend booking ahead and asking for Chris to be your driver for your tour he is the best! The coconut crab is a must as well.

We had such a great day on this tour. Chris, our driver, was fantastic. Every stop was well worth it, from blue holes to beaches and the most amazing fish lunch right on the beach in Port Olry. I highly recommended this company for tours on Santo.
