Our day with Charlie’s brother Ray was everything we wanted and more. Charlie’s family are so generous, sharing their time to show us their home and village. Ray knew exactly what we had booked to do (a little different to the set tours) and ensured it was a great day. Spending time with his kids was a bonus. We would definitely use See the Real Vila Tours again.

We love sharing our village life, especially living in village community is good for our kids and elders. We are always happy to be flexible with our tours so you can spend your day your way. The kids love meeting new people and having a chance to practice their English is good for their confidence too. Hope you can book again and stay for longer next time- safe travels.

If all tours, in all countries, were as delightful as this one, we would all be singing ‘What a wonderful world’ with the great Louis Armstrong. Charlie made sure we saw all that we had requested and then also took us to his own village to meet his family and see how they live. What an honor to see the love and warmth Charlie and Karina shower on all. We left Charlie at the end of our tour with smiles as big as the one he and his family wear. We cannot recommend See the Real Vila Tours enough.

We were looking for something a little different/unique and we came across See the Real Vila Tours. The part that sold us was the experience of visiting his village and seeing the real way they live and meeting the children of the village to us this was a unique experience for our children and ourselves to experience the real way of life. After the village we visited the cultural village and blue lagoon and last the duty free the whole tour we heard direct from the owner Charlie about so many different things and what places were when we would drive past the knowledge was amazing. We would highly recommend to anyone wanting something a little different.

Wow what can l say..Charlie and his wife Karina are just amazing, they met us at the ship and took us back to there village,showing us around there home and how they live and cook.After spending about 1 hour at his village we made our way to the blue lagoon which was just beautiful some of our group got in the water and had a very enjoyable time.After the blue lagoon we went to turtle bay which was also awesome and also had a lovely lunch..we got to feed and pat the turtles..and to finish off Charlie dropped us off in town to do some duty free shopping ...then all back on the bus back to the ship..it was an awesome day...thanks Charlie and Karina for a wonderful day..l would highly recommend these guys to anyone wanting to do a private tour of port vila...Mandy and Alex 💕💕
