Our People

2017 World Federation of Tourist Guide Association (WFTGA) Training.

At Rabaul Discovery we have worked carefully with people to ensure that we continue to deliver a memorable experience to our Customers. We have continuous training and awareness programs to enhance our existing capacity so that we continue to deliver.

Recently 9 of our tour guides attended a 2 weeks training facilitated by the World Federation of Tourist Guides Association (WFTGA). We are proud to say that 7 are now accredited tourist guides by WFTGA standards and 5 are accredited National Tourist Guide Trainers.

We believe in building relationships with people and communities where our tours are operated so that the community embraces our involvement.


Our Commitment

Our guests at the Hot Spring with the active volcano, Mt Tavurvur, in the background.

We are confident to say that we are the only Tour Operator in Rabaul that monitor all our Tours via VHF Radios for all groups on Tours especially. The groups are also followed by a support vehicle which is readily available to assist should a bus break down or someone who is injured needs to be taken back to the ship. It is costly however it is a commitment that we are prepared to honour to those that matter most, Our Customers.
