Let me start with the most important reason for writing - the guides. We met Nancy and Nancy. These two ladies are the best! They love a joke, can match anyone's wit, they are warm and friendly, but they are also very knowledgeable, and ever watchful. They are beautiful ladies, and I was very sorry at the end of the...

A hard walk to get up to the rim But it is a volcano and the hard walk melts away once you reach the rim. In the day you see the visual "shockwave" before she rumbles on average around every 3 min however as the sun goes down it livens up with the cooler air and you get to see... More

Went with AirTaxi's overnight tour. First had doubts as the costs were so high, but after the tour, I am glad to have done it with zero regrets. I won't describe too much of the volcano has there are plenty of reviews doing so already, but would definitely recommend doing the overnight tour as the volcano is so much more... More

This is high up on my list of great things to do. The power and ferocity of the volcano can't be described, you have to be there. Absolutely a must do, even if a bit pricey it is worth every cent. My recommendation is to definitely do a late afternoon evening tour. The explosions of lava come to life when... More

Thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the edge watching mother nature at its best. The only thing we did not like was the fact that it was a timed tour and we had to leave early evening to return down the mountain. The show is far more spectacular after dark and because had to return with the tour we only had 30... More

We visited Mt Yasur on a recent trip to Tanna. WE were driven from White Grass Ocean Resort, where we were staying, to the base of the volcano where we joined the local tour. We were warmly welcomed by the Ni-Vanuatu volcano tour operators & given a safety briefing (and a bottle of water) before being driven to the start... More

Amazing experience and if you have a chance to come just pay the money and go. It may seem expensive and yes some people think that it is too controlled but remember if this volcano was in the western world you would not be allowed to go anywhere near it for fear of OHS laws and red tape. Be thankful... More

Mount Yasur is something else! It was a phenomenal experience for us to stand by the volcano and hear it rumble and send up lava into the sky. Our guide William was also great, as he shared ancestral stories about the volcano with us. I definitely think this is a must-visit site on Tanna island. Now for the bad part... More

The volcano is pretty amazing, but we were disappointed to be taken down well before dark without any explanation. I was confused when we started our descent during the day, and thought we would climb back up at dark. But before I knew it, we were rushed into our trucks and sent back to our hotels. Everyone, including our truck... More

This is really the climb especially late in the day, a brilliant and powerful experience, not to be missed.
