Ecotourism Melanesia -  Port Moresby tours

Our day trips and excursions around Port Moresby and the Sogeri Plateau are only offered as private guided tours because there are not enough visitors passing through Port Moresby to sustain a schedule of daily tours.
All our day tours include air-conditioned car or van, experienced driver/guide, bottled water, umbrellas, a boxed lunch and all entry fees. Some tours are suitable for larger groups and can be operated as shore excursions for cruise ship passengers.
We no longer offer half day tours. This is due to increasing traffic congestion in Port Moresby which makes it difficult to complete a city tour in four hours.
