Approximately 3½ Hours
Apia is the historic capital of Samoa and retains much of its old-world charm. As you set out on a panoramic drive, you will cross the Vaisigano River and pass the famous Aggie Grey's Hotel. Aggie ran a hamburger joint and pub during World War II, which became a home away from home for American service personnel. From there, her business grew into a world-famous hotel. Watch for the town clock -- a memorial to the Samoan servicemen killed in World War II -- and the adjacent Pulenu'u fale, which is a traditional meeting place for the village mayors.
You'll stop at the fish market and the produce market where tables are laden with local fruit, produce and handicrafts available for purchase.
Discover the Mulinu'u Peninsula -- site of colonial administration in the 1870s and the current Parliament of Samoa (currently under reconstruction.) It is also the burial ground and final resting place of the former Kings of Samoa.
Finally, you will visit the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum to learn about the famous author and his life in Samoa.
Your tour concludes with a kava ceremony and island entertainment.
