This was supposed to be a 3 and 1/2 hour tour, but we were on Fiji time so it took a bit longer, which was great because we weren't rushed. We went to the Hindu temple in Nadi, Nadi town itself for some shopping, the growers market, the Garden of the Sleeping Giant (good if your into orchids), and the... More

All of the flowers and plants were very well kept and were pleasing to the eye with a lot of diversity. But after about a half hour or longer of strolling through the paths, everything has already been seen. There is a quaint little pond and board walk across that is perfect for photos.

This visit was part of a half day tour with Rosie's tours. Great way to see and savour the sights and tastes of Fiji. Excellent tour guide, informative, friendly and the gardens were beautiful. Our wander thru the gardens ended with a refreshing juice on the shady verandah .

We went to this garden the day we arrived in Fiji so it was a nice peaceful place to walk around after a super long airplane ride. We got there right when they opened and were the only ones their for most of our time walking around. We didn't do a tour and I enjoyed it that way because we... More

Shared a taxi to here and the mud pools -- driver waited for us at both venues----you should negotiate a good price beforehand. Well worth an hour or two to enjoy the sounds, smells and beauty of the Orchid gardens. A really enjoyable walk amongst rainforest, ponds and tracks leading to lovely hidden rest stops. We finished off back at... More

We spent an afternoon at Garden of sleeping Giant...if you are into nature and orchids you will love this tour. Didn't realize there were so many different orchids.
