See the Real Vila Tour Experience

From AUD 60

+2 Additional options

All our tours start early with a short drive to Charlie's village where he lives with his wife Karina and young children Phyline, Charlie Junior, Ammie and little RoseAnne.

Charlie's mother Taiyo, sister, brothers and their families also live in the village and welcome curious guests. You'll be welcomed by the extended family, have a chance to taste their local produce, enjoy a guided tour and be immersed in our everyday way of life.

You'll see the progress of Charlie and Karinas dream to have a brick home and perhaps hear them reflect on the devastation of Cyclone Pam March 2015.  You'll definitely be welcomed with warmth and leave the Village with local knowledge way beyond the glossy brochures and adventure tourism promoted by the Corporate world.
