Wonderful day with wonderful guides

We booked as 2 couples and they put on a great day for us and one other couple. Seamless pickup at cruise ship and shuttle to their base right on the river. We motored up river by local guides amazing watching him navigate the shallow waters. We then visited a authentic local village no shows or souvenirs just locals living their everyday life. We then went to a great waterfall and immediately jumped in. So refreshing! Lunch was served very nice local food. We then jumped in the tubes and floated downstream at a perfect pace. We encountered very fun rapids and no one spilled or had any problems. Such a fun and safe experience. A great example that the owner William has set for showing off his beautiful country respecting and support all local people and activities. Best of luck William keep it up and see you the next time we are in Suva!!

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.

Great day, Our guide Ben was excellent, very engaging and knowledgeable. Small group (7). Family run tour company with everything provided.

The visit to the village is a highlight.

The tour is good for people who do not like walking a lot. Good for introduction to fijian village.
