Captain Freddy threw us around and around in the Jet Boat on the Sigatoka River Safari. Great fun.
The village visit was well planned and welcoming. Look out to be the chief of the kava ceremony if you are the oldest male in your group. Remember to bring some gifts for the villagers or their children. A great lunch provided by the locals followed by dancing.
Terrific experience.

We went on the River Safari and we had the best time!
Our driver Knox started out by giving us some great information about the farming in the area and other information that got adventure started.
We got on the boat with Captain Jack driving and he is such a wealth of information about the area and the villages and the history, He kept us all laughing and very interested.
Our village guide (I can not remember his name, sorry) was also very gracious and helped us understand village life. The village we went to was Nalebaleba and the people were welcoming. From the Kava ceremony to the lunch the ladies prepared to the wonderful music and dancing was so amazing!
The children of the village were so cute and they have smiles like sunshine.
The boat ride back just topped off the day and was so much fun with the 360 degree spins.

I would recommend this trip to my family and friends.

thanks from the Canadians!!

Had the best time, captain leps was an awesome jet boat captain and tour guide he was full of knowledge and the Nalebaleba village people were most welcoming, thank you for allowing us into your village. And the 360’s on the way home were so cool.

What a great trip! This was easily the most fun I have ever had in Fiji. Been visiting my second home for 17years, and this was the best time I have had. Josh- aka Capt Jack, showed what an excellent river boat driver he is. So much information about Fiji culture and oh so many laughs. Thank you Josh and big thanks to Jay Whyte for such a fun and enjoyable trip to Tuvu. I can not recommend this highly enough - great trip.

The sigatoka river cruise was the first tour we did in Fiji. The jet boat ride was exhilarating and the village tour was an authentic and humbling experience. We ended up doing a few village tours while in Fiji but this one was my favourite as the villages are only visited once a week and I think this keeps the impact to a minimum and the villages more traditional. I would highly recommend this tour!

Fantastic cruise. The trip was well organised with the transport from our resort. The jet boat driver was brilliant and was able to tell us some history of the Fijian culture. Visiting the village and seeing the culture was the highlight of the day. Beautiful people. Would highly recommend this trip and would do it again

Fantastic time had on this tour. Pickup from hotel to Sigatoka departure point went smoothly. Lady Gaga doing the commentary on the bus as we made our way to the river departure point was a nice addition telling us about the history of the area. Once in the boat, Captain Fabulous Freddy did a magnificent job taking us up the river to visit one of the existing villages. We stopped a number of times heading up river for Freddy to inform us about the history of the area. We met the villagers, had a kava ceremony and lunch with the villagers. Back on the boat with Captain Freddy who got us safely back down the river with a number of 360° spins along the way. Highly recommend this tour.

We did the road cave safari and the river safari on the same day. Enjoyed every bit of both. Tia & Moses did a good job on the road trip.We had captain Jack who took us on the river safari.He had a great sense of humor...the 360 was awesome. It was enjoyable to watch the kawa ceremony and greeting all those little kids with a high 5 and all the song and dance and the food. Don't remember the village guides name he was entertaining too
