Today's tour of Port Moresby can begin as you step off of the plane in PNG, on your layover, or if you are in the city and wanting to explore more with a professional.

Port Moresby has had a bad reputation in the past, and still, has a bit of a cloud over its head to many and is regarded as a dangerous and dusty city. Over the years, however, the curiosity amongst the world has only grown and this interest has been reflected in the number of visitors the city is seeing each year. More recently, there has been quite a lot of foreign investment pouring into the area. 

Your tour today will take you to the must-sees in the city, including the Parliament House, and also take you to a few off-the-beaten-path sites that see few visitors. From WWII remnants to stilt houses built over the sea, this tour does include a bit of everything while incorporating PNG culture and locals.

Beginning at 9AM this morning, you are picked up from your chosen pickup point in Port Moresby. This can be your hotel, accommodation, or even the airport for those who are just landing. The tour today will include transfers in a private airconditioned and comfortable vehicle. 

Our first stop will be at the Koki Fish Market where you will experience a bit of a day in the life for the locals here who come down to sell their catch. In this historical part of Moresby, and up Toaguba Hill, you'll find an incredible view of Fairfax Harbor. As you look across the bay, you're able to see the Fisherman Islands and Hanuabada Village where the Motu and Koitabu have lived for generations in their village of stilt houses built over the sea.

From the centre of town, we will make our way to the Waigani area passing through street markets of paintings by local artists. If you feel like doing a little shopping for a painting, you can do it now or return later on your own time to find that perfect souvenir. 

Next, you will head to the National Museum and Art Gallery before walking over to the PNG parliament house. As you walk through the garden, it is worth walking around to the front of the parliament as there is a beautiful Murial that is a perfect spot for photographs. 

From the parliament, we drive to the Botanical Garden where a collection of PNG's national bird species are. Here expect to find the Bird of Paradise, Cockatoo, crocodiles, hornbills, and beautiful orchid gardens. While you are at the gardens, you can opt to enjoy lunch here or you can ask your guide to take you to the mall where you have many options of food available. 

After lunch today, we will head to (or back) the airport where we will see the new development that is taking place on one side of the airport. From here you will be transferred back to your desired location as the tour comes to an end.

Known as "The Pearl of the Pacific", and also the "Pompeii of the Pacific" Rabaul has an incredible history of perseverance. The city is well-known to history buffs as there is a lot to be told of WWII and the role that Rabaul played. Perhaps the most recent memory many have of Rabaul is the famous eruption of Mt Tavurvur in 1994. The volcano blew ash thousands of meters into the air and the weight of the ash caused the majority of the buildings in Rabaul to collapse. The city has since been rebuilt and is stronger than ever and is popular for its scuba diving, snorkelling, volcanoes, flora and fauna, and a harbour that hosts plenty of cruise ships throughout the year.
The Rabaul Mask Festival is a one of a kind spectacle. Held just 20kms from Rabaul the festival is a showcase of traditional dance, rituals, and ceremonies. On this tour, you will have a chance to experience the show as well as plenty of other highlights including a tour of Rabaul and its surrounding areas.

Day 4: This morning you will transfer back out to the show grounds for a full day of the festival. Today is the opening of the Warwagira and Mask Festival as they welcome the Tumbuans.

After the performance, you will transfer back to your hotel for the evening.
