Our tour guides Kesa & Ben were amazing, full of knowledge and beautiful people. The priests and their families of the Naihehe Caves were wonderful hosts and our son even enjoyed a game of footy with the boys. We learnt a lot about the Fijian history and culture and tasted 'Kava'. We would highly recommend this tour with Pacific Destinationz

We used coastal inland tours. After our guide picked us up he stopped for a "coffee" at a local souvenir shop just down the road, the staff there where very friendly even opening our car doors when we weren't going to get out, but we felt we had to go inside, they where a bit pushy, we bought a few...

Went with Sigatoka River Safari, great ride to the caves in a 4WD, visit to the village, the cave is huge. No bats. Wear aqua shoes or crocs, as you will be walking through the water, which is quite cold in some places. To enter the caves, you will be knee-high in cold water. Still,it's worth it. Great experience.

There are a few tours that go to this cave, we chose Coastal Inland tours. It was great, more of an authentic experience, Mark the Sautabu village spokesman was a wonderful guide and the lunch at the village was great, have never tasted fresh juice like theirs before.

This little excursion shows me another side of Fiji besides the resort, diving and food. I was delighted to see the villages and homes in a car ride to the cave. The Kava ceremony was for tourist but it's eye opening for me. The taste of kava is definitely different from anything I have had before. Visiting the cave and... More

What a sight - limestone caves complete with cooking cave pot, dating back to the days of cannibalism. The caves even have a supposed thigh bone left behind at the cooking pot but I suspect this is just for show. The chief welcomes us with a kava ceremony and then escorts us through into this fascinating cave system, plus before... More

Can highly recommend this tour. Was very easy to book via our accommodation and was very well organised. The tour itself was amazing. Breathtaking landscapes on the river and then an afternoon spent in a traditional Fijian village. The jet-boat was put to good use on the return trip down the river with plenty of 360 degree spins which delighted... More
