Savaii Tours

Savaii is the island not to be missed! It is the less developed and yet largest of the Samoan islands. Which means,  you get to see what we call "the Real Samoa" !. The Fa'asamoa culture is rich and prominent everywhere you go and  you will leave Savai'i refreshed and rejuvenated having visited! All tours start at 9.15am with pick up off the 8am larger more comfortable ferry is anticipated, and tours aim to have guests back on the Lady Samoa 3 (largest ship) 's last departure at 2pm, however occasionally if guests wish we can aim for the 4pm ferry  to allow time to do extra things.

All tours require a minimum of 2 people in order to run:) Food and Cultural tour costs $100NZD PP with a minimum of 4 pax. Kids 5-12 are 25% less.  For groups of 6 or more we give group discounts!

Accompanied by an enthusiastic local guide, the Savaii food and culture tours will give you a great insight into the Real Samoa. Our tour  begins with a Samoan Breakfast while you watch a Samoan Chief prepare an Umu (or Samoan Earth Oven ) demonstration in which you get to help cook your lunch for later.

We walk off breakfast by heading out on a foot tour to our local Village, learn about Samoan custom and culture as we share with you details of our Matai system  and get to sit in a traditional Samoan Meeting house.

Enjoy a stroll through our village where we point out local crops, flora and fauna as well as share with you how our local village runs.  

Enjoy a siapo making demonstration  only a short drive away followed by  a hearty Samoan buffet Lunch where you get to sample a number of traditional foods, guests are welcome to swim and kayak at our lunch location before we head back to the departing ferry  or your local Salelologa drop off point.
