Pick up from our hotel to Sigatoka Town. Took a speed boat out to a remote village in the valley. Speed boat did 360s - prepare to get wet! Tour guides very informative.

This is a fantastic family day, especially for teenage kids to see village life. The day began for us from the Westin Resort and almost two hours in the Tour Bus that picked us up. The drive through the country side and small towns was really interesting. A half hour break at the set-off point in Sigatoka was OK. Combined... More

Just loved this. Exceeded my expectations. Ok, so the 80 Kph jet boat ride is neat. But what is most impressive is the tour of the Fijian village. A step into a simpler world, a welcoming world. Hard to not be overawed by the brief visit. A simple lunch, a drink of kava and dancing with the kids. Just plain... More

A wonderful experience of the Fiji village and their hospitality. The boat ride was exhilarating and the trip back from the village gets you wet. An unmissable experience that should not be left out of your Fiji itinerary.

We booked our tour directly (rather than through our resort) after speaking with the wonderful MellaBella in Sigatoka! My husband recently broke his ankle and with MellaBella's help we picked a day where the village had the best access for him.
