My husband and I went on a Fiji Rivers Upper Navau trip in May of 2011, and having been on several other rafting trips around the world were looking forward to this one - we weren't disappointed! The rapids we not overly challenging, probably grades 2-3 for the most part, but the scenery was absolutely phenomenal, and we saw some sights that would have been inaccessible any other way.
The staff from Fiji rivers were amazing! From the skills of the 4WD bus driver getting us in and out safely, to the guides who spent the day with us, and the reception staff back in the office, we couldn't fault this company. Special thanks to Moses for looking after our boat that day - we had an absolute blast! Particular mention needs to made I think to the standard of lunch we received. Keep in mind that we've spent 2 hours in inflatable river rafts in white waters that did tip people out of boats, and it makes the idea of pulling up on a rock, on the edge of the river, in the middle of the jungle, walking underneath a small waterfall, and the crew pulling out tables, a huge variety of sandwich fillings and bread, and even a red and white checked tablecloth! It was quite amazing given where we were.
To top it all off, when returning home we lost the CD of photos we'd been given on the day. Almost 10 months later when contacting the company and explaining our predicament, they not only worked out which day we took the tour, but made a new CD and posted it to us in Australia. Exceptional service.
I know Fiji is all about tropical islands and beaches, and I for one will travel back to Fiji for just that reason, but taking a day out to explore the inner parts of the island and its jungle is something I've recommended to every friend I have travelling to Fiji. Writing reviews is not my usual thing, in fact this is the first time I've posted on here despite many overseas trips, but I felt that the people who made my trip so great deserved this. A must do trip in my opinion, whether youre young or old.
