My friends did this safari tour, the driver went the wrong way, and the boat flipped. A number of people were seriously injured and airlifted to hospital. Others quite hurt. They closed down the tour for two days, kept it all hush hush then ran the tour again.... This happened around 12 September. Be warned.

The day was amazing great history at many stops and funny facts or what they call bulacrap. For six months they visit the first seven villages and for the other six months the other six villages. Each day they visit a different village. At the village they have a kava ceremony and a tour around the village then they have... 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.

Have been to Fiji over 30 times as I have family there and am writing this understanding their culture and love of Kava but on you trip to or from the attraction make sure you keep the transfer driver awake. 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). This is an adventurous activity that worth every penny! The trip was awesome. Capt Jack stopped at some points to explain a bit about... More

Would definitely recommend this and do it again. Got to see a real village and meet the locals and the boat was heaps of fun. Captain Freddy was awesome especially for his 2nd day on the job.

I found the visit to the village fascinating and uplifting. The jetboat ride home was great fun. The jetboat driver and the local village guide were both very informative and knowledgable. This trip is quite expensive but well worth doing.
