I must admit I am not one for tours, however I was on a 2-night stay in Fiji and wanted to do an activity that would allow me to leave Nadi and see a bit more of Fiji - and on a budget. I am very happy that I booked this river cruise, in fact I ended up with lifelong... More

We had an amazing day meeting the villagers. Captain jack was full of interesting information and we loved the jet boat ride. Well worth experiencing if you are ever in Fiji.

This village tour was an amazing experience! The Fijian people are so nice an friendly! Note that there is some travelling time to Sigatoka from Nadi (roughly 1-2 hrs by bus) make sure you have enough food beforehand (lunch at the village is more nibbles). It was very hot for us during Feb so make sure you're hydrated as well.... More

The Sigatoka river jet boat safari was one of the best family adventures we had on this trip to Fiji. It’s not cheap for a family of 4, but it was still good value and action packed. A mini bus takes you upstream 20 minutes from Sigatoka town to the new starting point to keep some of the local fisherman... More

My partner and I were picked up from the lobby of our hotel and driven down to Sigatoka by the River Safari van. Highly convenient, already winning our favour! A small rest stop in Sigatoka, to stretch our legs, maybe buy souvenirs, and be handed our (the women) sarongs. Another 20 minutes on the van with a very entertaining tour... More

The Sigatoka River Safari really feels like a once in a life time opportunity that you'll treasure for the rest of your life. The jet boat was incredible fun, thank you captain Freddy - you made the trip even more worth it. But visiting the village was defiantly an incredible experience. Which I feel very blessed to be able to... More

This was our second time doing this experience, while it is amazing and fun, it is pricey. Before leaving Australia we had purchased school requirements for kids ie pens, pencils, books, footballs. clothing and taken them on the trip. As mostly you can only buy lollies before going. The tour company bus picks you up from the resort at 7am,... More

Family of 3 (2 adults and 1 x 8 yr old girl) went on the speedboat/village trip on 31 Dec 2014. What a great way to end the year. Have the most wonderful time, visiting the village, sharing a meal and experiencing Fijian life. Now for the speedboat ride, all our family can say is "Freddy" the speedboat driver ROCKS.... More
