A change of name from Wantok Tours to Pure Solomons better reflects what the Honiara-based company offers, says operator Francis Deve.
‘We were looking for something more relevant to the Solomon Islands’ nature and history,’ he says.Deve, who is the tour operator for Solomon Kitano Mendana Hotel, says Pure Solomons’ most popular tour now is a day trip to the Tenaru Waterfalls, which can be extended into an overnight stay at Para Ngiju Mountain Lodge.‘
The waterfall walk is one and a half hours and part of the Maruyama Trail. We can also offer treks for the whole trail (seven days) or sections of it.’He says the track is the Solomons’ version of PNG’s Kokoda Trail.Meantime, Pure Solomons also offers tours to various battlefields and a general overview of Guadacanal.firstname.lastname@example.org
