There are many cultural villages on Efate, but this village is exceedingly well run. The villagers speak good English. The information stations are informative. The dances are well performed. Great place to stop. Wonderful photo opportunities.

Our visit to this village was a real stand out from our tour in Port Vila. It was interesting to hear how traditional methods are used to preserve food. The dancing and fire walking were entertaining. I would recommend a visit here

I really enjoyed our visit to this cultural village- I learned a lot about how the people used traditional methods to help them survive during the recent cyclone. I enjoyed the dance and the firewalk too

I really cant say anything that hasn't already been said. It was very interesting to see how people are able to adapt and survive. I have to say, don't miss this if you are in Vanuatu.
