My husband and I wanted our children to not think our 5 star resort was the only thing Fiji had to offer. We wanted to immerse our children not only in the gorgeous Fijian people but also expose them to the cultural way of life. This tour achieved that and more. This tour is a long day so little children... More

We did the morning river safari with our 8&5 yo kids. Despite the stifling heat, we all had a ball. The 5yo was tired towards the end if the village visit but perked up for the boat ride home. Special thanks to Captain Freddy for making the day even more enjoyable!

My hubby was made the Chief of us travellers and had to interact in the most authentic Kava ceremony we have been involved in. Lunch was simple but prepared my the village women and was awesome to...

I was lucky enough to do the jetboat river safari last year and this time bought my fiancé along to encounter this truly amazing and humbling experience. We could learn so much from the beautiful Fijian people. This is a must do tour if your going to Fiji. Simply spending your holiday in the resort will not give you the... More

They were personable, informative and funny. The woman guide on the bus was excellent as well. She let us know that she expected a lot of questions or she would... More

Do this one!! Smooth transport to the jet boat where we began our journey down the Sigatoga River. The highlight was visiting the Village. The villagers were very welcoming and friendly. We partook in a Kava Cerimony. A traditional meal was prepared by the village for the tour which was much more than we could eat. The food was not... More

Very efficient booking service, pickup and transfers. Jet boat captain was friendly and informative as we made our way up the river past beautiful countryside and villages with their very friendly residents. We visited Navula village where we were made very welcome by our guide Eleanor ( who speaks English very well - despite her doubts! She was just lovely)... More
