Our family of 17 people ages 2 - 65 went on this safari. At first we were a little anxious about the children on board but it was perfectly safe and they all had a ball. Captain Jack was amazing - very competent at the helm and very conscious of safety etc. The boat ride was such a thrill, and... More

A great day out! We were lucky enough to get to the river on a bright sunny day. Travel time from the resort (Outrigger) was a little over one hour however our driver was pointing out local attractions. The village we visited (a different one each day) was great. A Kava ceremony and the young children running around with the... More

Best experience in Fiji by far, True Fijian people. We went while on our honeymoon and none of the villagers were commercialised unlike other tours you can go on. Worth every cent. Captain Freddy was a character and topped off our day. P.S the Kava ceremonies went down a treat as well.

Ours fell asleep at the wheel on our frightening journey back to Denarau. It was 4pm in tge day &... More

The Jet-Boat ride was great and also the visit to a Fiji Village with lunch included. The people in the village were very friendly and had everything set out very nice.

Lady Gaga & SpongeBob start the first part of your trip on the shuttle with a running commentary that's very entertaining. We got to go on the small jet boat with J.T (trained in Queenstown as well as Fiji). She was great. Very informative and a great driver, although I notice she was the only one that didn't get a...

My fiance joined this trip after seeing that it was one of the top activities to be done in Fiji. We contacted the travel agent right in front of our hotel (Fiji Hideaway Resort and Spa).
