A wonderfully cultural and exhilarating trip. Everyone in our family thought it was the best experience of our trip to Fiji and we had a pretty awesome time! Tip, take some goodies for the village children as it is worthit tosee the looks of joy on their faces.

Four of us took the safari and it was just terrific. The jet-boat ride to the village was exhilarating, the tour of the village with dancing and dining with the villagers was inspiring, and the boat ride home with the 360 spins was the best. If you only do one tour while in Fiji, do this one.

This was truly one of the highlights of our trip to Fiji! We wanted to see the real side of Fiji but always like a little adventure too and with this tour we got both! You start off on a nice leisurely trip down the Sigatoka River to take in the beautiful scenery (whilst in a Jet boat), then we... More

We felt very honoured to visit one of the villages along the river; the villagers were extremely hospitable. The jet boat was great fun as well.

The jetboat ride up the river was exhilarating but the village tour was the highlight for us, we had 2 twelve year old boys and a fifteen year old boy and what a... More

This trip was the best thing we could have done. You see the "real" fiji. Felt so humbled to be there with the villagers and very very welcome. The boat trip is loads of fun and the guides are great and tell you so much about the area. Definitely a MUST when you visit Fiji
