This is a quite unique experience, combining the thrill of jet boating with an authentic village tour / meeting / celebration, and is well worth doing. The only thing I’d advise is that, if doing the afternoon tour, lunch is included but it’s not served until close to 4pm (our tour started with a hotel pick-up at 12). This wasn’t... More

Exciting jet-boat ride coupled with a visit to a Fijian village and welcome from the villagers. 2 quite different experiences but a really enjoyable trip.

This was a great afternoon, we had the pleasure of having Captain Jack as our boat pilot, we went at speed up river to a village, we had a tour of the village and we thank them for their hospitality as they were preparing for a funeral. We visited the church and had lunch in the community centre, our kids... More

Brilliant day with great people. It was a privilege to see and hear about the life in the village, to experience the real Fiji. The locals were so accommodating and happy to share their time and stories. The speed boat ride was absolutely amazing and fun, everyone had a smile on their faces at the end of the trip. Captain...

This tour is worth the money. We did half day tour and were picked up early from our resort. A little stop off for shopping in Sigatoka. Drive for about an hour inland up the river and they told you about some of the culture and history along the way. At the transfer point you get ready to take the... More

You will really feel like you've left civilization when you venture out to the Sigatoka river. Everyone is very nice and accommodating. You get on this boat and cruise along the river so fast. It is exhilarating! I did love the cultural aspect of visiting the village, but it was uncomfortable only because I didn't expect so much cultural interaction.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour with my two children. The trip from Denarau was on a small bus which was fine to the river. On the way we stopped at a souvenir shop and we were encouraged to purchase. From there to the river local landmarks were pointed out. The Jet boat was fast and fun although a bit strange passing... More

Wonderful. Flawless. Picked up from resort on time. Best way with kids (who get bored on long bus trips) to get to villages, made the journey there fun not boring. We had a 2 year old with us and it was not a very wild jetboat ride so was perfectly safe for children (one of mine was scared but got... More
