          A peek at village life in Fiji, with a scenic river boat trip
          I went with a group of friends and had a great time! The boat ride was fun and the scenery beautiful. Our boat captain food a fabulous job of describing what life is like in the village and how the social structure works there. Very interesting. The women prepared a delicious, ample meal, family style. Our village guide was very welcoming. Great experience! Much different from just going to the beaches. Included this in your Fiji travel plans!

          Unique beautiful experience!
          Our tour was with Prashant and Vishal - they were amazing! Extremely friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating! We started with the Temple which was beautiful and very colorful. We got snacks from the restaurant at the Temple for later and it was incredibly delicious! Next we went to Sigatoka market and had some delicious coconut! It was great to see the daily lifestyle of native people. The market had a variety of fruits and vegetables and the town folk with extremely nice. This was followed by Lawai pottery village which is a town prepared for tourists. This means that they have a donations bowl and dances for tourists followed by a local product sale. A bit awkward as it feels like a prepared daily presentation, but interesting to see the culture of the villagers and the pottery was nice. This was followed by a trip to the Naqalimare village where they hired Mati and her husband to take us to the caves. She was very nice and shared her experiences in her village with us. We took the school boat across the river, walked through rainforest like terrain (we wore bug spray which I assumed helped) and were greeted by the entrance to the caves. Be prepared to get wet! We wore our water hiking shoes and loose pants/shorts that could be easily pulled up which was perfect. Prashand/Vishal provided us with flashlights which we used in the caves. Areas require you to squeeze through narrow spaces while in 2 feet of water. I am 5ft so it was to my upper thighs and my husband who is 6ft it reached at his knees however he had to bend down significantly to fit under the cave formations while in the water. It was an incredible and unique experience. This was followed by lunch at a local restaurant with delicious curry. Overall a wonderful experience with great genuine people!

          Fantastic private tour!
          The Sigatoka Sand Dunes is a wonderful trek that this operator hiked with us! The Kula Adventure Park was interesting too and well worth a visit! Totally recommend this company to anyone!

          Exceptiional tour in Fiji
          Our guide, Vishkal, was very knowledgeable and an excellent driver. His flexibility was very accommodating to our needs. We went to places seldom seen by most tourists. The pottery handicraft village was off the beaten path and gave a a true taste of the Fiji culture. Having a friendly local driver was very useful in learning about the country. We loved the villager who took us to the waterfall and we saw many beautiful plants on our walk. The waterfall pool was well worth a swim. We highly recommend this tour and Vishkal.

          Boring
          Very boring, staff Are far from happy, you can see in their faces that they don’t want to be there and you don’t get quality attention

          Very nice!
          It’s a nice day trip- activities offered were fine, snorkeling was okay, cabanas are nice for those sun sensitive, and there’s a glass bottom boat. The buffet was good!

          Best day in Fiji
          Wow! This tour exceeded all our expectations. We were met by Vashna and Vishal who spent the entire day as our tour guides and ended up becoming great friends. We saw a beautiful Hindu temple, ate fresh fruit from a roadside stand, found the best views on the island, toured a small village, danced with village children, had a kava ceremony, watched pottery being made, took a trek from another village, took a Billibilli ride across a river, ate jungle fruits, learned cannibal history, climbed through a small tunnel into a massive cavern, ate lunch with a village chief and his family, toured a beautiful local farm and were warmly received by a local farming family for tea. We were immersed in real Fijian culture and learned about history, crops, local customs and felt the true spirit of Fiji. This tour is a MUST DO when you visit Fiji. Great value and wonderful people. Vinaka vaka levu to Vishal and Vashna for making this trip so special!

          Wonderful Day!
          We had only a single day to take in as much of Fiji as we could, and this was the ideal way to spend it! Our driver picked us up on time and was very friendly and helpful throughout the day. Our guide was fun and pleasant as well as being knowledgable and accommodating to whatever requests we had. The sites were a good variety of natural beauty and man-made structures, so we felt that we got a great overview of many aspects of the main island of Fiji as well as the culture of its people, whom we found to be genuinely warm and friendly in every encounter. Overall, as an avid world traveller for more than 40 years, I can sincerely say that this was one of my favorites!

          So interesting and exciting
          Tia our guide, knew the history of these caves so well! She shared her knowledge with passion and skill! This was well worth the money and we are so glad we did this tour! We added a jetboat ride afterwards and Captain Fini was just the best!

        Be prepared to be insulted by the guide. He obviously despises tourists and was especially nasty to a group of Indian women in the tour. What could have been an informative and beautiful tour of a Fijian village was anything but. I would not recommend this based on him

        Very disappointing as vehicle was given wrong address and when finally arrived it couldn’t enter docks as permission hadn’t been arranged. Lucky for the good police officers on site and arranging access for us.
