Ancient Tonga Reviews
One of the best cultural tours I have been on in any country I have visited. It was very informative, interactive and suited to all ages. more »
The place is very closely located from town and worth coming. They give you a lot of knowledge of local foods, customs, mate weaving. You may have a chance to eat the Lu - local delicacy od meat cooke... more »
A bit tricky to find if you organise it yourself - the taxi driver needed guidance from the GPS and even then dropped me off at the wrong entrance, however once there I had an amazing experience. I was the only solo traveller that had shown up for that afternoon but was joined by a large group of German tourists after a while. The German tourists required a translator and the explaining back and forth was a slow process, so two of the girls opted to pull me aside and give me my own guided experience instead. They were absolutely lovely, and SO funny. Omg I've never met nicer people. They were around about my age and we talked about more than just ancient Tongan traditions - though of course I still partook in all the activities and made my own Lu, coconut cream, kava, tiny bit of tapa cloth, etc. It started to rain heavily towards the end of the two hours and I was stranded for another hour with no way to get back to my accommodation as the taxis weren't arriving. However the girls made me feel right at home until the rain cleared. The girls were super informative and knowledgeable in all the traditions and medicinal uses for the local flora, I honestly learned so much and would recommend to anyone.
Authentic introduction to ancient practices in a very engaging and memorable experience. Highly recommended.
