Our guide Janet was wonderful. She took us to the waterfalls. We visited Orchid Island with a private tour with Mike and learned about ancient tribal settlements, with beautiful flowers. Visited the presidents guard and residence. local shopping. Highly recommend Janet who customized our tour to suit us!

We both loved our day out on the river! The guides were great with lots of information and good fun to make the whole day enjoyable! Lunch was great! Would definitely recommend doing this tour! Lovely company with great staff! Thankyou!

William Danford and his crew were exceptional throughout the river tubing, waterfall and Fijian village tour. I would highly recommend this activity as my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole activity and would come back again.

Our guide Peter was fantastic, very friendly and informative. The waterfalls and rockpools were so beautiful. We swam in the pool, and bathed under the waterfall. It was the best!! Do not miss this experience when you visit Suva.

Actually it is not a city tour as there is not much to see Suvs. But the two stays and walks in the rainforests were very good. Great guide Patrick.
