          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

          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.

          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.

          Great beach
          I’d like to share my experiences about the Bal Harbour beach which belongs to Marriot Resort Palm hotel . Incredible service thanks to Arbaaz ! Food is great , cabanas are super comfortable. On the beach you can always sunscreen, water with lemon available.

          Fiji ZipLines from Marriott Mombi Bay
          Booked directly via email with Daniel and got picked up from Marriott in the bus, was super easy. Best morning doing the zip line and lime caves. The guides are amazing, carrying everyone's water bottles and cameras taking photos throughout the adventure. We had Nat looking after our stuff and he was super friendly, informative with like cave history & he took so many photos and videos for us. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

          A Fun Day in Nadi
          Our tour turned out to be a private tour for just myself and my wife. Avi and Avi were our guide and driver, and both of them were great. The temple was closed to visitors on the day we went, but we did get some good photos. The Nadi mud pools were a lot of fun, as we got to channel our 4 year old selves. The Sleeping Giant Gardens were beautiful and relaxing. We were introduced to the Kava culture at the markets, but it probably will not become a part of our daily lives! Overall it was a really fun day.

          Amazing experience
          Our driver/guide Avi was great, very knowledgeable about different cultures living in Fiji. Explained what our tour involved and if we wanted to spend less time in one place and more in another it was an opportunity to do so. Each part of the tour we were met with a warm welcome, each guide was friendly/welcoming and very knowledgeable sharing the wonders that surrounded us. Totally amazing tour Vinaka

          Garden guide
          While the places seemed amazing we were rushed. Our driver/guide knew we needed to be back to the Port to catch a boat to our island by 5:30 and he was concerned with traffic. We did not go the the market and were not able to experience all of the Garden.

          Great fun & stunning landscape!
          We had such a great experience with the crew at Fiji Ziplines! Definitely do the rappelling as part of the package & I'd recommend going in the morning because it's pretty warm out!

          Awesome Optional Travel & Tours, Port Denarau, are awesome!
          Awesome Optional Travel & Tours, located at Booth 11 Port Denarau are fantastic. This is a truly Fijian family business. Rush is the tour guide, Kasa (his wife) is the booker with a wealth of knowledge on what to do and Simon (Kasa’s nephew) is the driver. We did two tours with Rush and Simon and they were both great. We customised both tours to suit our needs and budget. The first tour we visited the Sri Siva Subramaniya Hindu Temple in Nadi, then went to the Sleeping Giant zip line, visited First Landing (where the first Fijians landed in Vitu Levi) and lastly went to the Sabeto Hot Springs and Mud Pool. All were great and we returned to our hotel, tired but happy. The second tour we went to the Coral Coast and visited Biausevu village where we had a welcome kava ceremony and visited with the preschool children. We then hiked about 45 minutes to Savunamatelaya waterfall with a guide from the village, Saka. Saka is passionate about his village, very funny and told us stories along the hike about his culture and the plants in their area that can be eaten or used for medicinal purposes. After spending quite a few hours at the village and waterfall, we had a quick lunch and then visited the sand dunes where the Fijian rugby team train. As luck would have it, as we were driving out we saw the team and stopped to meet some of the players! Our final stop was a horse ride along the beach. What a way to end a fantastic day. I cannot recommend Rush and his tours. If you want a custom tour run by Fijians who are passionate about Fiji and their culture, you can’t go past Awesome Optional Travel & Tours, Port Denarau (phone +679 2499844).

        We have been to Fiji twice before, so were mainly looking for a tour that just went to the Garden of the Sleeping Giant. The Wonders of Fiji tour best fitted our needs and was good value for money.
        As it turned out, we were the only 2 people booked for this morning's tour so our tour was very personalised. Rusi arrived promptly to pick us up from the resort and greeted us warmly. Once inside the air conditioned mini bus, I was presented with a red hibiscus for my hair (ladies only) and we set off on our trip.
        We didn't stay very long at the Namaka market and then moved on to the Garden in the Sabeto Valley. After a brief introduction about the plants, we were left to wander the path on our own. I'm glad we went in the morning because it was quite warm climbing up the hill to the lookout - but well worth the view. After some refreshing fruit punch back at the entrance, we headed back to the Hindu Temple in Nadi.
        After completing a short guided walk of the temple, it was off to Jack's for some shopping and then back to the resort. We were well taken care of during the whole trip and I can highly recommend this tour.
        Thanks to Rusi from RTR Transfers & Tours; in conjunction with Excite Tours & Travel.

        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!

        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.
