On arrival to the show grounds, all of the staff whom I met were so welcoming, kind and accommodating. Then we were sat down and viewed a pre-show performance. This was spectacular! It was great to get a feel for what’s to come. The main show itself was stunning - So emotional and captivating! Afterwards there was a photo opportunity with the cast. And my driver dropped me back to my hotel. An AMAZING night! Everything was done to perfection! I highly recommend!

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 Dave was excellent. We enjoy the tour very mainly because of him.
