"Lovely, lovely people. The tour took us up the mountain and stopped off at several local beauty spots to take photos. We then went down to the beach for more photos and finally to the shop for some authentic Samoan snacks which were absolutely lovely (especially the breadfruit chips!) Our tour guides were an absolute delight to be around and were also knowledgeable and helpful. They persevered with their efforts to teach us some Samoan words, even though most of us we so old we couldn’t remember much of it, but they spent whole day with smiles on their faces. We would recommend these guys to anyone visiting Pago Pago and when they say they are the best, they very probably are! Faafetai!" -Craig Ward

Custom Private Tours (Cruise ship days subject to availability)
Are you considering a trip to American Samoa but don't know where to start? Look no more!
We specialize in taking care of everything you could possibly need while here. The tourism infrastructure in American Samoa is still in development, which means finding information and resources to make your trip happen is really hard to come by. However, that also means our island is still very raw, and not commercialized which makes for a very unique and memorable experience.
Having our local guides (also our owners!) act as your guide while here will take you to all of the places you want to see PLUS many of the other cool spots that many of the locals are unaware of! Time and again we hear our customers say at the end of their time here say they are glad they hired us because they end up seeing first hand how difficult it would have been otherwise. You can take a chance and go at it alone, but if you truly want to experience American Samoa and make the most of your long trip down here, there is no other choice but to go with the BEST!

WORLD WAR II TOURS
American Samoa became a critical staging ground for the United States during WWII and after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, the island was never the same. The U.S. marines arrived in droves and transformed American Samoa into a defensive position for the U.S., a training and staging ground for Guadalcanal, and ultimately was preparing for a Japanese invasion. Take a tour of many of the remnants of WWII and hear the stories of how this war changed the course of history of our small island nation along with the rest of the modern world.

You will see incredible shorelines, lush tropical rainforest, taro plantations, freshwater crater, quicksand and more. Aunu'u Island is a National Natural Monument and sanctuary.
Manu'a consists of three main islands: Taʻu, Ofu and Olosega and is a 35 minute plane ride away from the main island of Tutuila. Samoan oral historical traditions state that Manu'a was a ruling center of a large Polynesian empire which included all of the Samoan archipelago and other nearby islands such as Tonga and Fiji and the birthplace of Polynesia. Today, Manu'a remains an unspoiled paradise and anyone looking for a true 'off the beaten path' adventure is in for a treat!

We'll then hike up the coastline to get an up-close view of Pola Island, one of American Samoa's national natural landmarks.
