Would highly recommend Noumea Tours to anyone visiting New Caledonia
”Our hotel recommended Noumea Tours as a support for local business and they were 100% right. Because we went with a local we went to places that were off the beaten track that the main tour companies don’t go to. This was wonderful as at each of the locations the nature is ever so slightly different. It enabled us to fully appreciate how diverse New Caledonia is. At times it felt like we were the only people on the island.
Manuel speaks excellent English and is a very engaging person. The price is also significantly less than other tours. It’s a no-brainer, I’m definitely recommending them
I just want to give a huge wrap to Manuel from Noumea Tours, We found him on Trip Advisor and so glad we did. We came in on a cruise for a short shore visit. He picked us up from the port at 4pm for a 2 hour tour, taking us up to the top lookout and around all the bays. He has a newish Mercedes Van and even had bottled water for refreshment. He speaks very good English and was a great guide, he let us stay a little longer if we liked and really allowed us to choose our own adventure with the options. Thanks Manuel.
Manuel speaks both English and French and I knowledgable about the city. I was picked up on time in a comfortable vehicle. We were taken to the Market (advised of the best stall to get pastries), the Cathedral and an amazing vantage point to see the city. The surprise in the trip included a visit to a national park in Dumbea which was stunning. He also gave some great advice regarding what to do in the city (great pubs, dinner spots, gelato shop) and how to get around (which water taxi is cheaper). This tour is best done early so that you are familiar with what else is available and factor this into your plans. Great guide, great tour, strongly recommend.
Noumea Tours is a very profesional service and company. Manuel is the owner and operator. I did a full day tour and it was great. Cultural sites, history, nature..everything. I also used his company for airport transportation to hotel. He speaks french and english. He can do personalized tours for you and family or friends. The bus is new and very confortable. Recommended! Thank you Manuel!
We had an informative day out with Manuel, on a full day tour around NOUMEA and it’s immediate environs. He speaks very good English and is keen to show visitors staying in Noumea rather than cruise ship passengers his home of nine years. As is usually the case these tours give one an overview of the place rather than anything in depth. Not all the places visited may be of interest to everybody but our highlights were the food markets in the city which were very clean and orderly and the drive to Dumbea and the countryside beyond with a tranquil river setting. We also saw the town from three different elevated vantage points which gave a good appreciation of the layout of the island’s main population centre. We have suggested to Manuel that he tries to offer some alternatives from the usual tours to give him a point of difference.
