Thus was definitely a highlight of my week in Fiji! The friendly greeting in Sigatoka was wonderful. The young tour guide that took us out to the boat stop had a wicked sense of humour and it was a wonderful trip. The trip up the Sigatoka river was magnificent, to see the locals swimming and bathing in the river they... More

We visited the local village and it was very humid and my daughter fainted and was looked after by the village people very well while we continued with the tour. Once back she was okay and then went on the boat ride. Meeting the locals is a great experience and they are very freindly. The ride is also great.

This was definitely a highlight of our trip to Fiji. The sights along the river were spectacular and when we arrived at the village we were greeted with true friendliness. It was wonderful to get a glimpse into the Fijian culture and share Kava together ( although the Kava was not to my liking, my husband enjoyed it!) We danced... More

wonderful experience that was both cultural and fun. The village visited was amazing and one leaves feeling humbled and blessed for little things in life. The river cruise was fun but be prepared to get very wet with the 360 degree turns. The guide was friendly, knowledgable and funny

I recently experienced the Sigatoka river Safari and I had such a fantastic memorable day! The speed boat was great fun and the scenery is spectacular! It was a great cultural experience to walk through one of the several villages along the river and join the kava ceremony. Thank you to everyone for a awesome day!
