The travel can get you jetlagged but surely its worth the trip. The heart of Fiji is un-spoilt and the you can feel a strong regard for respect and traditional Fijian authority

this is a excellent place to learn about tribal life, traditions and customs that make the Fijians who they are. Do not wear a hat, Fijians do not cover their heads, and be sure to participate in the Kava Ceremony.

When you come to Fiji, which is made up of 333 islands, there are many places to stay. If you were to stay up at the Yasawa Islands, there are some traditional villages similar to Navala Village where you can visit, in most cases for free, and experience life in a traditionally thatched bure style village. Many tourists however don't... More

This was the highlight of my holiday to Fiji. I wanted to see the real Fiji and this is definitely it. The drive to Navala from Nadi was fairly long but our driver, Solomon, was excellent, giving us a rundown on everything we passed and telling us all he could about Fiji. We stopped in Lautoka to visit the local... More

Liked the warmth and friendliness of the people which is consistent throughout Fiji - delighted by the children signing, Kava ceremony, handicrafts (authentic and made there), traditional meal. To gain respect of the Fijian people it is a must that you respect their culture by wearing a sarong and covering up - no bikinis, low cut tops etc when visiting... More

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
