Life time Memory.

Was the most amazing day,life time memory,and to be chosen to be chief was very special,if you want a Fiji Cultural experience this is the trip for you,to exchange kava with the village chief and to dance and sing with the village was something I will never forget and our guide Tia was outstanding her knowledge of Fijian History was unreal and can drive a jet boat and Captain Ace the way he presented the ceremony and his translation of Fijian to English so we understood the process of the day was very professional,a fantastic 5 star day my wife and I will remember for ever thank you Tia and Captain Ace.

A bit handsy

Care should be taken if you're a woman on this trip. I was forced between too villagers during this trip in a dance line and one was feeling my private ares and had to be pushed away.

Great experience, knowledgeable local staff

From Joe, our driver, to “ace”, our tour leader and boat driver, the staff was real good. Visiting a local village, one of seventeen that they alternate going to that are very remote, small, and authentic was a treasure. The villagers were very friendly, fun, and welcoming. The lunch the villagers made for us was delicious, varied, fresh, and local. The village we visited does not have electricity, hard to imagine in this day and age. The village children were typical of kids anywhere, happy, playful, inquisitive, and beautiful. Be prepared by bringing along small gifts of gratitude for the village. I brought a solar powered led camping light, a couple led flashlights and spare batteries. You will enjoy this.
