Samoa is a place where you need to know someone if you want to score waves. Neil with I think close to 20 years of living their was the perfect guide. There is no other person I would recommend to connect with if you want to surf. He is going to put you at the right spot at the right... More

Manoa tours was an absolute blast! Amazing surf spots for all surfers and BEAUTIFUL snorkeling. Our guide Neil was very knowledgeable about the island and very helpful to whatever we were doing.

Manoa tours has the island completely wired and couldn't ask for a better surf guide. Has been on the island for 16 years and knows exactly where to be before anyone else, anywhere on the island (Unlike some tours where they only have a boat on one side and you are hand cuffed when you get the wrong wind). Scored... More

Manoa Tours adapted to our budget and needs and were a pleasure to tour with. Our guide Vikka was great and able to take us to some of the best sites of Upolo. We were an large (25) extended family group with all ages from 5 - 85 and varying mobility but Vikka was able to accommodate all our needs.

I couldn't have ask for funner waves on my trip. Manoa tours was always on time for the early morning surfs and with loads of local knowledge I felt we would surf where the waves were the best. It is Within walking distance from Sinalei reef resort which was great. I would definitely surf with them again.

We hooked up with Neil to take a snorkeling trip with our 4 children ages 6 to 13. My husband and I found Neil's professionalism refreshing. We felt that we were in safe hands taking the kids out into open water. Upon reaching our snorkeling area, Neil stopped the boat and allowed all of us to enter the water near... More

Has 4 trips out with Neil including one early morning surf with no wind, which was the best. Neil is organised and knows what he's doing. No time limits on surfs. Used the snorkel gear on board at one point as well. Very good value. Would recommend. Cheers.
