My wife and booked on the Sigatoka River Safari after hearing about it from a family staying at the Hilton. We thoroughly enjoyed the day out which included the mini bus drive from the Hilton, the cruise up the river with running commentary from the driver of the jet boat, our visit and lunch at the Fijian Village and the...

We have just returned from the Sigatoka River Trip and it was wonderful in every way and well organised from start to finish. We had lots of local information given to us on the journey to the jetty by a very humorous Fijian member of the staff and had a great jet boat ride to the village where we were... More

Jetboat ride was average, 360s a lot more fun. Crew are very safety conscious. Village visit was my favourite part if the trip. Locals will say visit the village outside of the tourist times to experience the real fiji.

We had a fantastic time on this tour, the jet boat ride was very exhilarating especially when our driver did several 360's in the river. Visiting the village was also a great experience, the Fijian people are so friendly, we learnt a lot about their way of life. It was a great experience and would recommend it to anyone.

Well, one thing is for sure. Don't read too much into Bula MarathonVin's review below. Clearly somebody got their brochures mixed up and signed up for the wrong tour. With the Sigatoka River Safari you are going to get an insight into what life is like for real Fijians in an isolated village, and a chance to meet real people... More
