Green Train Day Tour
Feb 2020
My husband, daughter and I did the tour on a cruise stopover. I booked/paid for tour from Brisbane and printed out the tickets to take with me. We got the bus from ship to ferry terminal, showed the tickets at Lyvai kiosk then walked along the water to wait under shade for the train and off we went. The lady guide was very informative and we enjoyed seeing the beaches and up into the hills for some fabulous views of the islands and out to sea. We made several stops to take photos then went through the city centre and back to the pick up point. The cost is less than half of the ship-organised tours, we paid roughly A$130 for 3 of us and the equivalent tour from the ship was close to A$300 (US$59pp). The ship tour is the yellow tchou tchou train which basically does the same route around Noumea. You are able to book tours at the ferry terminal but we booked at Lyvai.com online no problem. I would highly recommend this tour as a good introduction (2 hours) to Noumea and surrounds.

Very informative and relaxing
Feb 2020
From start (booking on line) to finish (at the end of the journey) the experience was a pleasure. Got to see the outer part of Noumea which we had never experienced before. The staff are very friendly and organised and happy and smiling. The driver of the train was the owner of the business and she was lovely. Got to hear some interesting facts which we never knew before and we had a couple of stops along the way with photo opportunities. Being on the train in the open air was very refreshing. Very happy that the money paid goes direct to the local economy too.

Friendly, organized, great intro!
Great intro to Noumea! Michael our guide was informative and entertaining and took us to some great lookouts to look over this beautiful island. We loved the open air “carriages” and the locals all gave the train a friendly wave. Booked direct with lyvai via website, better value and money goes direct to the local economy.

Disappointing tour with too little information
Jan 2020
After reading so many great reviews we were sorry to have such a disappointing experience. It started off badly with a very harrassed Manager displaying very little in the way of Customer Service Skills as they loaded us onto an overloaded train. Our guide was very, very nice but unable to provide good information on what we were seeing. We finished the trip with little idea of Noumea and feeling very discouraged.I am sure with the right guide, it would be a lot better.

Dear Giuliana, First of all, our trains have 60 seats. Our Computer doesn't allow us to sell more to 55 places. Our manager can be overstrict sometimes. We apologize, you got the wrong impression of this tour madam. Our Green train is a fun ride which costs $ 30 USD for 90 minutes, if you want a more thorough history course, we have a local university at Nouville for $ 300 USD a year without any field trips. Don't forget passengers are on holiday with children on board, our guides have to tailor their speeches for people of all ages and generations to enjoy. You could have the greatest academic credentials madam, we are pretty sure our local guides know more about our island's history than you do madam and that they do their best to cover most of it in small amount of time. Thank you for your feedback, we shall stay afloat and the LORD shall be our life preserver ! Enjoy the rest of your holidays and GOD bless. The Red Team (LYVAI)

Fantastic way to see Noumea
Jan 2020
We had a great time on the local green train in Noumea. Our guide David gave lots of good information about the places we saw, told funny jokes and really seemed to enjoy what he did. We have previously booked and did this activity 3 years ago, but had so much fun that we wanted to go again on our next visit. Great for families. Good amount of time to see the main sites. Much cheaper than booking through the cruise ships and great to know the money is going to local people rather than the ship! Highly recommend. Happy to be a repeat customer.
