    Hill Ouen Toro
    Stop: 10 minutes
    Ouen-Toro hill rises up opposite this rocky point. A road runs the length of the municipal park and leads to the 128 metre-high summit overlooking the lagoon. It is topped with two superb cannons, installed by the Australian army in 1940. From up there you can take in an unparalleled view of Noumea and its surrounding region. Coming back down, the road around the hill frequently offers many very interesting views over the various sides of the city. To the South, you will see just below you the Méridien and Château Royal hotels, bordered by Château Royal beach, as well as Anse Vata beach and, further in the distance, the islands, Île aux Canards and Îlot Maître. Continuing westwards, the two bays, Baie des Citrons and Baie de l’Orphelinat stretch out. To the North can be seen the residential districts, such as Val Plaisance, Motor Pool, Receiving and N’Géa. Lastly, to the East lie Sainte-Marie bay and its little islands. The mountains of Mont-Dore and the hills of New Caledonia's Great South, the Grand Sud, can be seen rising in the distance.

Entertaining and Relaxing Tour
Oct 2019
Our travel guide was so nice to us so I promised her that I'll leave her a review. The tour that day was tiny, 3 person including myself. I was travelling alone so there was another pair of couple. The travel guide picked me up on time at my hotel in her comfortable SUV and she introduced us to the city, the best spot to dine and even brought us to the supermarket for some grocery shopping!. She is an expert to this city and explained to us the history of the country (although I forgot some of them by now haha). If you are new to this country or city (like I was), I strongly recommend this tour to you as you'll have a great overview of this city and you'll sort of figure out where to go for what kind of activities!

The tour guide, Marie had so much to tell us and so little time. It was a very informative 90 minutes that easily could have lasted three hours.
I fail to see the need to spend so much of our time at the Johnston supermarket in the city when more of the city sights could have been experienced.
Marie is an absolute gem!

Bonjour, I am delighted that you were satisfied with our service. We suggest other longer tour to covering more areas. The guided city tour is a short tour to introduce the main information to discover Noumea by your own. We hope you had a wonderful visit in New Caledonia.

Poor quality, do not touch!!!!

This was a bad start to our shore excursions on the cruise. Poor qualty, uninterested and therefore uninteresting bus driver made the trip boring and rushed. I could not, in good conscience, recomment this tour to anybody.

Noumea Orientation Tour
Aug 2018
We selected this tour after reading previous reviews. We were not disappointed. Our guide Tai was knowledgeable and interesting. He provided us with background information and a good understanding of Noumea, its lifestyle and points of interest. Eintenne our driver was safe and welcoming. The mini bus was spotless. A recommended tour for all visitors to Noumea.

Our visit to Noumea October 2017
Oct 2017 • Couples
This is without a doubt an excellent introduction to Noumea and to culture in New Caledonia.

There was myself and my wife and another couple on this tour so the numbers are small we had the opportunity to talk about everyday life in Noumea and to discuss issues of particular interest to us. the tor took us to a number of vantage points around the town and this helped to identify the various areas in and around Noumea.

The tour took us around all the major landmarks, we were picked up from the mariner having earlier alighted from the cruise ship. Both the guide and the driver were friendly and knowledgeable, taking the time to describe the views and the important sights to visit.

This tour is very good value and we would recommend it anyone else visiting Noumea.
