Chef John picked us up at our hotel and our day started going directly to the fresh local markets. We could feel the real flavour of the Samoan people, and how everyone knows and loves John! Once we got everything John needed we headed to a marvellous place,Piula Cave, where we had a swim and afterwards the real show started. John prepared our table in a quite and calm corner, he got out all his tools and started to cook an amazing, full of fresh flavours lunch: marinated tuna, grilled fresh fish, avocado, passion fruit, start fruit...awesome!!! And all was served in a green-earth leaves, non contaminant plastics! After this marvellous lunch we spent the afternoon going to other key spots in Upolu:Togitogiga waterfall,To le Sua, Lalomanu beach...and everything ended with a nice ice cream. So, and amazing experience more than recommended. Thanks John for share your passion of Samoan cuisine and culture! Salva and Sara

Chef John is a great talent, he really introduced me to Samoa, we drove around the island, went swimming and by a glorious salt water pool, he prepared a delicious lunch. The food was amazing, sustainable. Well worth doing again

Highlight of my first trip to Samoa! John is a Savai’i local and took me and my friend to his island via ferry. The tour is tailored to our interests so we went to the blowholes (amazing!), then the lava fields which are fascinating and a quick swim at Manase before a beautiful lunch of fresh snapper and papaya salad cooked by John. We also got to try some umu delicacies, and had a quick stop for ice cream before exploring the market and heading back to Upolu. Highly recommend Chef John Tours and am already thinking of booking another trip and tour!

My husband and I had the privilege of spending the day with Chef John on a tour of his island home Savai'i. I had read the previous reviews and just knew we had to book this tour (in advance to avoid disappointment). Chef John has a wonderful personality and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him. From the moment he picked us up from our resort at 7am, he was very attentive ensuring we were comfortable whilst travelling between sites (we stopped at the waterfall, lava fields, Amoa resort for a drink at the end of the day before embarking on the return trip back to Upolu). The highlight was stopping at Chef John's auntie's beachfront fale resort and enjoying a delicious lunch prepared by him whilst we swam in the beautiful clear water at the front of the resort. We did many other tours and activities whilst visiting Samoa for 13 days, but this was by far the most memorable and enjoyable day we spent there - highly recommended!!!

Last year we did the Upolu Island Day Tour with Chef John... we loved Samoa so much, it left us wanting more, so we came back for another holiday. I wanted to see more of Samoa, so this time we opted to do the Savai'i Island Day Tour - and it was fantastic! I really enjoy Chef John's tours because (a) he takes you to all the best spots, (b) it's personalised - I'm not into the kinds of tours that involve sitting in a big bus with dozens of other people, and (c) the food is good. I highly recommend it. Thanks, John, for giving us such special holiday memories.
