I was expecting the visit to the village to be a bit contrived, but it couldn't have been more authentic. Even the word 'authentic' cheapens what we actually experienced. The people were so lovely and genuinely excited to welcome us to their village and show us around. Also the jet boat was cool.

Humour of the operators, their obvious joy in their job, and the village life in and around the River made it great. Loved getting wet on a hot day! As I have a background in tourism - tribal development partnerships, I recognise the deeper... More

Although it was raining the tour guides managed to brighten up the day with their humour. The jet trip up the river was abit of a pain with the rain pelting our faces at high speed but our journey back down was fantastic as the rain had stopped.

The jet boat ride was a lot of fun, but it was the village visit that really made the trip worthwhile. We were greeted with a traditional Kava ceremony, toured the village, served a native lunch and entertainment, then back to the jet boats for fun ride back. Highly recommended.

It was great trip down the river to a little village called Naveyago. Our guide was Freddy and he was fun and very imformative. The people in the village were so lovely and we had some food they prepared and got to see a Kava ceremony. All in all a great day.

An amazing day, the jet boat ride with Captain Freddy was awesome and it was interesting and humbling to meet the villagers and see their way of life. Everyone was friendly and welcoming, they even put on a traditional lunch for us. Drinking kava was certainly an experience! Would recommend.
