Our shore excursion started late from Lautoka Wharf . The tour of the Sleeping Giant was boring, well our self guided tour of the gardens, other groups had a guide telling them about the plants and the gardens, we were left to do it on our own.Mud bath and hot springs were a nice and fun experience. Our driver didn't take us to the Fijian village, so we missed out on that experience and the Kava ceremony with Talanoa sessions missed that too. We had to ask our driver to take us to the temple, this was originally on the itinerary when I booked but he told us that we had to pay 5 to see the temple - that was mainly covered in scaffold and tarps. We then finished off your day with some 'shopping' and lunch at Nadi Town, what a hole of a place. We know nothing of the town as our driver didn't point out anything, although he did take photos for us at the mud baths. Only gave the rating of 1 because I was completely dissatisfied with the day as a whole.

Overall we were very dissatisfied with this tour. Ali, our guide was there when we got off the ship as promised, but then he left 8 of us standing on the hot dock for 35 minutes while he went to get the van. Apparently he had the wrong permit to drive into the port, but didn't bother to send someone to tell us. The tour is advertised as having a driver/guide. Ali was a good driver, but he was definitely not a guide. He was pleasant and carried on a conversation with the person closest to him, but did not say anything to the rest of us about any of the tour components. First we were taken to Garden of the Sleeping Giant and left for 1 hour to look around by ourselves. Other groups had guides telling them about the different flowers there. We went from there to the Mud Baths for 2 hours. The Mud Baths were a lot of fun, but 1 hour is all you need. Some people resorted to a 1 hour massage to kill time. Ali completely skipped the Fijian Village that is the 3rd component of the tour Experience the Fijian lifestyle for a few hours and learn the basics of living in a traditional Fijian village.... He took us to Nadi Town a dirty shopping strip, and told us we had 1 hour there. Since lunch was not included we took a quick look at the shops and went for lunch. 6 of us waited there until Ali returned. Then a long drive back to the ship with no information about anything on the way. We requested a partial refund due to not all the tour components being given as promised and received it. Apparently, from reading other reviews, it is hit or miss with the tour guides working for this tour company. We missed :

While the driver met us on time, he then disappeared for over 45 minutes to retrieve his vehicle which unfortunately was an extremely cramped van with low windows. Confusion over seating at first and then absolutely no tour commentary from the guide made for an inauspicious start to what ultimately turned out to be a wonderful walk through the lush, flower-filled Garden of the Sleeping Giant and a reviving 2-hour stay at the Sobeto Hot Springs a healthful regime that would cost several hundred in a stateside day spa!. The trip to the nearby town of Nadi was so-so -- we would have preferred another hour at the garden or the hot springs. Highly recommend that Viator review other comments related to this particular tour provider and consider omitting Nadi from the itinerary.

We were pleasantly surprised when we found we were the only people on our guides tour that day. He was very personable and flexible with his time at the different stops. At the mud baths we were joined by just one other couple while the nearby cruise ship tour was fairly crowded. Nadi town had limited appeal but was interesting. Raymond Burr's orchids at the Garden of the Sleeping Giant were beautiful.

Locations great for the Garden of Sleeping Giant and mud baths. Lautoka a very poor town and only souvenir shop open during our visit.due to holidays. Tour operator great as a driver but offered no/little information a normal guide would do. Also van was very poor visibility due to small windows back row of seats not able to see out propely. No Microphone. Guide operator not there at agreed time and had to be called three times to find out where he was and where we were to meet since he wasn't represented at the tour operator's booths

The Garden was awesome. Our group decided to bypass the mud baths because the bridge was out. Our guide Mohammad was great.
