Navua River Village and Kava Ceremony Tour including Lunch

Nadi, Coral Coast or Pacific Harbor, Fiji

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
We were picked up by bus on time from our hotel, and driven to the meeting place for the boat pick up. We were met by a very friendly man who was our guide, and put on board the boat. The boat trip is an hour and a half of beautiful scenery, and then you arrive at the village. The village tour may be interesting, however the conditions left me very sad. The welcome and Kava ceremony is interesting, and then a guided tour of the village. There is an opportunity to give a donation to the school to help improve the school for the kids. You are then ushered into the large community area for lunch, served on the floor which is lovely, however too much food. After lunch the souvenirs are set out for you to look at. Beware - these are not made by the people in the village, but are bought at cost and taken into the village for profit. You then take another hour and a half journey by boat back to the drop off pint, an then wait for a pick up by bus to return you to your hotel. The guide did seem to expect a tip, so be prepared. I found this tour sad and depressing, however the people are lovely and cheery. If you want to see how the people currently live, take the tour.
