Prior to departing on a cruise to Papua New Guinea we searched trip adivsor for suitable tours from Alotau and decided on Alotau Land Tours due to the exceptional review. We were not dissapointed. Contacted Cathy by email to book a tour and Cathy promptly replied with all of the information about the tour etc. So easy. Before the cruise left Brisbane there was a change of arrival date at Alotau and while we were on the cruise there was further change to the date we were to arrive. .It was no problem to change the date. We were met at the wharf by a beaming Wilma as promised. Wilma was a great tour guide, knowledgeable and very friendly and nothing was a problem. The tour was not hurried and gave us a great insight into the general life in Alotau. Started off visiting the hospital which was quite an eye opener. Then off to the markets where locals were selling their fruit, vege and fish. Next was the school where we were greeted by the children. Everything was basic with not power or windows They didnt have much time to prepare for us due to the last minute change in our ports of call but they gave us a memorable greeting. Cathy had sent us some suggestions of thinks that we might like to bring for the school so we had brought 2 big bags of school supplies which were greatfully received. Then off to a hilltop village. Had to walk up a track and over a stream where locals were washing their cloths to get to the village. A great experience . Lastly off to another small village where we given a presentation on how they make cloth out of the bark of trees. Overall it was an excellent tour which exceeded our expectations. Many thanks to Wilma, the driver and her helper.

The team were wonderful and so friendly. We were able to visit the hospital, lookout, local school and villages. We ran out of time to get to the war memorial, but they were happy to drop us off there at the end of the tour. Cathy also gave us a list of items to donate to the hospital, school and villages. They were all so appreciative when receiving the items. It was fantastic to enter the villages and be welcomed. The locals let us walk around and take photos and showed us what they create to make an income.

We booked our tour with Alotau Land tours before we left Adelaide after reading a number of good reviews, and we were not disappointed. Our emails with Cathy were answered promptly including questions I asked, one of them being what gifts to bring. I bought gifts for the hospital and was thrilled to be able to distribute them. What lovely people we met, including Wilma, Jeanette, drivers and helpers. They could not have done more to make our day. We visited the hospital, a school and 2 private homes as well as views from the lookout. When we got back to the ship and discussed what we had done, it was obvious that we saw and did more than the cruise ship tours. Some people just walked into town and visited the markets and were quite disappoined, so I would suggest that guest coming would find it much more interesting if they booked this tour.

We booked this tour online before arriving in port on the Sea Princess. Cathy was very easy to deal with. She replied to emails very promptly and was very clear with instructions and meeting points etc. Cathy also helped with suggestions on what to bring for the local people eg pens, books, clothing, fishing hooks, lines and sinkers, balls for the kids etc. The bus tour was extremely interesting and was taken by Wilma and her colleague, both of whom were very personable and spoke good English. Some of the places that we visited were the hospital, a school, local villages, the War Memorial. I cannot recommend Alotau Land Tours highly enough!!

Cathy was very easy to deal with in booking via email. The tour itself provided a great overview of the life of the local population. We visited the local hospital, a school (where the students dressed in their native costumes and performed for us), a local village, the War Memorial and the local food market (which was fascinating). Cathy and Wilma are not professional guides but throw their hearts into showing you their local culture. Very insightful.
