The garden was amazing and beautiful as was the Vuda look out. Bring small cash for market and village shopping.
Our driver was very informative and happily answered our questions. The view from the lookout is spectacular. Our guide at the village was very knowledgeable on the history of the village, and we finished our tour with a peaceful walk in the garden.
Fantastic tour, flowers beautiful, village tour was interesting and lookout had great views
We had a great time at this tour. Our tour guide was really nice and told us lots of interesting facts about Fiji. He also bought some treats for us at a local market.
Our guide was fantastic! He got us to where he promised, let us look around and was there when we where ready to go. The garden is beautiful, the Hindu temple fascinating and colorful. The look out gives you some direction of the country, while the market was something to experience. Well worth the price and time
If you only have a half of a day in Fiji, this is the tour to take. It is owned by Rosie and she graciously has guests to her house to enjoy spectacular views of the main island. The staff is loyal and very knowledgable and very well treated/respected by the owners. We saw amazing things and would recommend this to anyone in Nadi for a day:

Beautiful scenery, great tour guides and we saw all the part of Nadi/the mainland that we wanted to
Very personal; and relaxed tour - Thoroughly recommend this one..
The bus drivers and touring guides are very friendly and we were well looked after.

Was an early start, first to be collected then called into a number of resorts to collect more travellers. Finally off to the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, wow, the orchids (native) were spectacular and all in flower. Decided to look after mine and try to get a show like theirs. The off to visit the villagers of the first landing and meet the the ladies of the community who were selling their trinkits. The tour of the Sabeto village was wondeful, full of very interesting infomation and the opportunity to take many pics (provided the guide could be in some of them). Told us that nearly every important person in Fiji has come from this village, he sang beautifully in the church and explained the seating arrangements. The off to the Vida Lookout. The views are spectacular and a must see. This is a 360 degree viewing and thank you to the lady for providing the most delightful fruit platters and juice. Leaving Vuda we travelled onto the markets where our guide took us through and explainded the Kava plant and many other vegetables which the Fijian people use and how it is cooked. Make sure you book this tour, Rose Tours made the day exceptional and nothing was a trouble, nothing was boring - just a wonderful day.
This trip was very good. Vuda Lookout was very scenic. They served as with several kinds of tropical fruits in her garden. It was very refreshing after a hot day.The orchid garden was beautiful with nearly 2000 species of orchids. I like orchids. I really enjoyed it. Our guide also took us to the vegetable and fish market in Nadi.
I highly recommended it.
Good price value, beautiful scenery and very nice staff. I had a lovely day.
This is a beautiful view and garden and the people operating the tour were so very kind. Our plane was late arriving and the tour waited on us and also stored our luggage. We were also served fresh fruit on the tour which served as our lunch since we arrived late and didn't get lunch on the plane.
Great tour, Bobby our tour guide was great and full of information and happy to help and take pictures. Totally recommend this tour to get an insight into Fiji culture and history. Really glad we took the time to do this tour before going out to the island for the rest of our holiday. We were away for the whole 5 hours, could have spent longer at the Gardens though but overall great..

It was just the two of us and the driver. Our driver was knowledgeable and told us a lot about the country and people. The sights were great and we left with a great understanding of the country and its people.
Nice opportunity to tour a historical Fijian village and see the surrounding areas from a high vantage point. The weather was nice, which allowed us to enjoy the splendid inland and coastal views, and the pleasant walk through the orchid garden.

Great tour! Nice visit to gardens and refreshing drink, could have stayed longer. Fantastic time at the First Landing village and finish off at the beautiful lookout. The tour host was very friendly, informative and made us feel part of the 'family'. Only thing is website says goes for 5 hours but it's actually more like 3. Highly recommended for half day tour of Nadi.
Excellent morning. More time at Garden of the Sleeping Giant would have been good.
This tour was a great way to get a feel about Fiji and the area around Nadi, magnificent views from Vuda lookout. If you're the sort of person that appreciates gardens and nature, then the garden of the sleeping giant is not to be missed. The orchids are so beautiful and the garden area is a lush green and ever so peaceful. Well worth the time and money.
It was a really good way to spend the morning in Nadi. The guided visit to the Sri Siva Subramaniya Swami temple was probably the highlight of the day. The Namaka market was interesting, and the visit to Viseisei Village an eye-opening experience. Unfortunately it was raining at Vuda Lookout, I imagine the views must be spectacular on a clear day. Watch out for the mozzies at the Garden of the Sleeping Giant and the fruit orchard next to the Lookout.
