Listen as your guide shares stories of its significant past and observe how the residents live. You will then continue to Nadi, an area well known for its tourism and sugar cane production. Take a photo of the colorful Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple, the largest Hindu temple in the Southern hemisphere, then stop at a vibrant, local market for some shopping.
Prepare for an unforgettable time in some of the beautiful gardens and villages in Fiji by reserving your spot today.
This tour was very nice the orchid gardens were beautiful but because it was a Sunday we could not visit a village but did get to see ancient ruins of what was left of an original settlement.
Great, very informative and enjoyable. Friendly, knowledgeable guide.

We were met outside after disembarking and were taken by a van on an amazing tour of Lautoka and several highlighted area, Hindu Temple, Orchid Garden and the ride of the village of Lajutoka. We were overwhelmed by this experience and would highly recommend this tour.
Visiting Raymond Burr's private estate garden was the highlight. The Hindu temple stop was a letdown as we expected a more elaborate structure. This one is gaudy. They make you remove your shoes at the entrance, requiring a walk across very hot pavement to reach the "temple". A visit to a produce market was interesting but the stop for shopping not so much.

Our tour was a highlight of our cruis. The orchid garden tour was beautiful and given by a very knowledgeable woman. After we visited the largest Hindu Temple and were amazed at its beauty and our tour guide Amy gave extensive explanations for all of us who had limited knowledge. The visit to the,native village was awesome and informative for all of us with little knowledge of the history of Figi and the rise of Christianity.
