Words cannot describe how much I enjoyed this day! From the minute we arrived we felt welcomed by the whole team. The river cruise was fabulous, with our guides stopping along the way to explain to us the culture of Fiji and for us to take in our amazing surroundings. We were welcomed into a beautiful village called Toga and... More

If you only do one trip on the Coral Coast - this should be it - my husband and I took 2 of our grand-daughters on this trip (aged 17 and 8). The 8 year old had to be cajoled into the trip and was not looking forward to it - she was scared of going to a village and... More

We visited Fiji in October and it can get pretty hot and tiring if you do a full day tour (unless you are on one of those island cruises). We loved this half day tour which begins with a stop in Sigatoka. You can do some shopping while they do some administrative work like signing waiver forms and giving the... More

We were very happy with our decision to do this day trip with 12 other family and friends the day after our wedding in fiji. It was enjoyable for all ages from 4 years old to 50 years old. The village experience is a must amd the boat ride is just so much fun! Definitely do this if you get... More

I went on the trip with a friend of mine. The trip out from the village with lady gaga and sponge bob was very entertaining. They are a very cute couple. The trip up the river was great and meeting the locals was a very cultural experience. The only issue I had was with the tour boat driver. He was... More

Not only was the jetboating fantastic but the village tour and lunch was unforgettable, the staff were very friendly. We were recommended to purchase gifts/ items for the children in the village, wish we were told this earlier because we could have purchased something better than what was on offer in the gift shop that the "shuttle" dropped you off...

One of the best things about this fabulous tour is knowing that some of the fee goes to the villagers who welcome you so generously into their lives for a couple of hours. The formality of the kava ceremony, the friendliness and warmth of the feast and the dancing give just a little insight to village life and brings out... More

This is a well organized trip that combines both an exhilarating boat ride with an entertaining and well-spoken local guide (Captain Freddie) with a genuine hands-on experience into indigenous Fijian culture and tradition. We did all the "touristy" stuff like snorkeling, deep sea fishing, horseback riding, mud bath / natural hot water spring, etc., but the Sigatoka River Safari was... More

From the exhilarating jet boat ride to the Cultural visit at the village, this is Worth every cent. The jet boat alone is worth it, but the village experience took it to a whole new level. Not your average tourist village visit. This is the real deal. Our boat driver "Captain Jack'' Was a one man entertainment Machine!

Trip started with a well organised Pickup from Resort to Shop in Sigatoka Town, but the Fun began after we were introduced to Captain Jack. He told us many stories about Fiji and kept the atmosphere light and easy and scary a mix of everything. I must compliment them for there skill to ride the boat is very little water... More
