We enjoyed the tour very much. I believe the company was called TTF. They provided a very comfortable four-wheel drive vehicle that picked us up at our hotel, First Landing, near Lautoka. The guide, Solomon, was talkative and very informative. Solomon explained a lot about what we saw as we drove through Lautoka and on to Ba where we went... More

well visited. We visited several other villages on our trip. This one is the most "touristy" if you could say such a thing about a local village.

This road is only suitable for 4wd and drivers with experience but the drive is great with fantastic views and friendly people to help you find the way. Upon arrival at the village we were... More

A wonderful day into the highlands, our guide Solomon was a wealth of information and the village people were wonderful. The school children were so great and polite, they love having their photo taken and looking at the result.

To experience the essence of real Fiji this is a must visit. If you are traveling from nadi its a looooong drive however once you get there you will forget all that. The place is so calming and it will feel like you have traveled 100s of years back in time. The villagers are so humble and welcoming. Visit the... More

a 100% traditional village with stunning scenery and aura around it. Had a fantastic road trip with a local car rental service provider (highly recommended - ''Major rentals) for my trip to navala village from Ba town. On the way is the gorgeous Ba river. Locals mingle with tourist in a fantastic friendly manner with no surprises.

The scenery alone en-route to Navala is worth the trip! Some people come here on a tour for heart-stopping amounts of money, or you can catch a bus from Ba for $2 (plus $2 minivan from Lautoka, etc). If you miss the morning bus (we did) you can hire a carrier for $50 (still a bargain over a tour). Entry... More
