        Great tour!
        We were lucky enough to have a private tour and our guide was fantastic! We enjoyed all the stops and information shared with us throughout the day.

        Very nice driver, Terrible tour
        Our tour guide was a pleasant guy but the tour part consisted of comments like "Here is the Hindu temple. Would you like to go in?" The answer should be no. You are probably going to interrupt someone's prayer and there's really not much to see. Info on the sugar refinery was basic but interesting, unfortunately the guide didn't have enough info to answer questions. We never went into the market but we loved the very first village in Fiji. It was fascinating to hear how the village evolved and how the 850 people still live. Pay the extra for one of the villagers to show you around! Crafts sold are very reasonable. Vuda Marina is beautiful but don't make the mistake of going for a meal. Although we ordered 30 minutes before a bus tour showed up we got our food after. An hour and a half is too long to wait. Food wasn't terrible but not great either. Bring a picnic or just order drinks. Drinks came quickly.

        Great informative tour
        We went on this tour today and got picked up from The Radisson. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were provided with water in the car. The temple tour was very interesting. We stopped at a souvenir shop and at a produce market that also sold a few souvenirs. Last we went to the gardens and were provided with a cold drink at the end. None of it felt rushed and we learnt so much. Thank you

        A great experience packed full of beauty and fun
        So glad we booked this excursion. Better than we hoped. Our guide was brilliant, lots of interesting knowledge and good humour made for a great day out. The markets were interesting, the temple was beautiful and our guide informed us about the Hindu religion which was truly interesting. The sleeping giant mountain and the orchid gardens were so beautiful, we took too many photos. The walk through the gardens to the top of the hill was so humid we look liked we'd been swimming, but soooo worth it. The mudbaths and thermal pools were the perfect way to finish off. Glad we were taken to the ones run by locals. If you're wondering whether its worth it, I can assure you that you willl not be disappointed!. But, you may be a bit hungry at the end. Maybe take some cash and buy some local fruit at the market to keep you going

        Insightful tour from a Nadi local
        Avi picked up from our hotel promptly on time (not Fiji time), and it turned out it was just us that day, so we had a private tour! He was super informative and gave us a lot of insight into Fijian culture and history. The temple was great, and the gardens were beautiful. Tip: Bring insect repellent for the Sleeping Giant Garden walk! All in all, it was a lovely morning, and we learned a lot. Thanks, Avi!

        A lot to see in one day
        Fun day seeing the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, Hindu Temple, the Farmer’s Market and the Mud Pool. Our guide was kind, informative and flexible, allowing us extra time to get a massage

        Felt like we did 4 days of stuff all in a half day day tour, but we never felt rushed!
        Rachelli and driver were wonderful. Friendly and informative and safe. The temple tour was wonderful. The market was great, and we had time to eat, shop, take pics, etc. The gardens were absolutely stunning - a highlight for me. The guide was so informative and kind, and the walk through was a dream. The mud baths were delightful and fun and everyone had a blast. By the end of the tour, everyone in our car was like old friends. Vinaka to rachelli and driver for a wonderful day!!

        Perfect daytime tour. Ask for Avi
        I once saw an ad that said that the people of Fiji are born into happiness. That statement couldn't be truer. Our driver, Avi was excellent. While driving us to the village he gave us a nice history lesson of the people of Fiji and told us some great stories of his Indo-Fijian family including how they arrived here, what they do, and of their customs and traditions. The waterfall is a must do. It could be a bit tricky to get there, but the village guides will take care of you, and once you get to the falls, you'll see it was worth it. Oh yea, don't forget the Kava.

        Waste of money
        The sights were nice. The tour guide was friendly. The market is a total scam and all the products are double what you would find at the Jacks store at the pier. We spent $300 Canadian on this tour- it was worth maybe $100 . Save your money and take the Bula bus to the pier for $10 each (kids are free) and take a taxi to the temple and the gardens.

        Great cultural visit!
        We did this tour as a family with a young child. Our guide Avi was great! He was knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. He even waited for us when we were 30 minutes late at our hotel pick up. We were the only ones on the tour so it felt like a private tour. The pottery village was a great insight into traditional life. Be aware that you are expected to make purchases to support the village. The sand dunes were beautiful and scenic. The school visit was fun and the kids full of energy. The local market was a little busy and a few vendors hassled us, so be prepared to say no. Lunch was great. It was at an Olive Tree franchise restaurant. It was hygienic, affordable and tasty. Overall, 5 stars!

        Saving the best for last!
        This was the last adventure we did during our stay and as the saying goes "they saved the best till last". 16 zip lines was by far the best value for money adventure experience. The guides were amazing. Highly competent and very good at managing the group and the variances in confidence within the group, while ensuring everyone enjoyed themselves. Certainly, going the extra mile. As with other reviews, we definitely recommend doing this activity in the morning before it heats up! Another highlight for us was learning that our money goes directly to the village who operate the zip lines.

      The “handicraft market” turned out to be Jack’s of Fiji. Really? There is a Jack’s store in every hotel and shopping center in Nandi. Taking us to a food market didn’t make any sense. We couldn’t buy anything because we still had several hours of touring ahead of us and would have no way to keep things refrigerated. The historical village was the worst. We were dropped off in front of multiple tables of crafts and trinkets and pressured to buy things we didn’t want. SO uncomfortable and icky. The 4 - 5 hour tour dragged on to 7 hours! No lunch provided! The van was hot and everyone was sweating and starving when we were finally dropped off at 3 pm. Do NOT take this tour. Find some other way to see the orchid gardens. They were the only thing worthwhile on the whole trip.

      We got picked up from our resort in an air conditioned mini bus. Didn’t realise this was a private tour so it made it that much better as we were a party of 7. Our driver was amazing, so friendly and welcoming. All our tour guides at the gardens and the village were terrific. We brought along with us some school supplies and sporting equipment for the village children. It was such a humbling day. We stopped off in Nadi town to check out some shops.
