Tonga facts & history in brief

Teta Tours Tonga

There's no better service between town and airport.

Give them a tinkle or book them by email.

As you, my dear visitors, are aware of it already, there are no ads, pop-ups or anything of the kind on my pages.
No recommodations, suggestions or anything, because we don't usually get any service, accomodation or anything that we could really recommend and even if we did, we never received any reward for it.
Saying that, I do make some exceptions from time to time, when we did receive exceptionally good service, help, understanding or assistance.

After asking many Taxi drivers on a number of occassion and receiving a very wide ranging and varying prices for taking us from our hotel to the airport we asked one of the driver of Teta Tours Tonga as we passed their office, just on the chance and he immediately give us an answer and a very good price T$12.50 pp. which was a bit more than we paid on our arrival (T$ 20.00 for the 2 of us), but much better than the T$40 - 45 we have been quoted lately.

He turned up on time and got us to the airport in good time.

Very friendly, reliable and excellent service.

They do a lot more than a Taxi service, get in touch with them.

By the way, this is on the house.

Transport (Tongatapu - Nuku´alofa)
Nuku´alofa is the central hub of all transport.
Buses arrive and depart from the central bus station along Vuna Road (the boulevard) close to the centre of town.
Buses are privately operated and their drivers are free to drive whenever they want.
There is no regular schedule, and if a driver is not in the mood to go one day, then there is no bus.
Fares are fixed by the government, with reduced rates for school children.
Usually the buses are filled to capacity.
In addition some schools and big hotels have their own buses.

There are numerous taxis, also privately owned.
Some in good quality, others almost falling apart.
Many people who own a car earn extra money with taxi services in their spare time.
Taxi fares too are set by the government.

There are no railways or trams in Tonga.

Most families have their own car nowadays, and the traffic on the roads, especially Friday afternoons and Saturdays is heavy enough to give long queues.
Bicycles are few.
A lot of walking is still done too.

Nuku´alofa harbour is the only deep water harbour of the island (which was the reason that it was selected as the site for the capital).
For many years Vuna wharf was the international harbour, until it was destroyed by the 1977 earthquake.
A new, much larger wharf was built towards Ma´ufanga, named after Queen Sālote.

The fishermen and interisland ferries wharf, wharf '42', is between the two.
It is the central hub for boats to the outer islands.
There are usually 2 boats to ´Eua every day and 2 to Ha´apai and Vava´u every week.
In addition to these regular services by shipping companies, there are less regular services from private boat owners to smaller islands like Nomuka, ´Eueiki, and so on.

Air transport is provided at Fua´amotu International Airport on the south side of Tongatapu, 35 kilometres from Nuku´alofa.
