Lautoka Bula Discovery Tour
Visit the historical and cultural highlights of this magnificent area in Fiji on this exciting tour from Lautoka.
Travel inland by air-conditioned vehicle to the beautiful Garden of the Sleeping Giant located in the Sabeto Valley which lies north of Nadi. This tranquil garden contains more than 2,000 species of Asian orchids belonging to the late American actor Raymond Burr. Meander along canopy covered paths, note the well-manicured lawns and cross over lily ponds.
From there you will head to the seaside village of Viseisei, the oldest settlement in Fiji and home to its Chief. 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 well organized, the bus comfortable, and we enjoyed the Gardens of the Sleeping Giant. Visiting the Fiji Village was very interesting. Bus driver and tour guide were informative and friendly.

Our guide promptly picked our group of 6 up at the port and began our tour (keeping us ahead of the big ship tours) at the Garden of the Sleeping Giant. All along the way he provided facts about Lautoka. The Temple was beautiful and there was a young couple having their new truck blessed (fascinating!). The tour of the local market with all its sights and smells was interesting. The only activity we weren't wild about was the time spent shopping at a souvenir shop in town. We returned to the boat in plenty of time.

We enjoyed the tour, and we learned some about the the everyday village life and history of the Island. Scenery was good and our guide was knowledgeable. Do bear in mind, this is 3rd world Polynesia, not the paradise of being in a luxury resort!

We had an excellent guide. The visit to one of the villages was very insightful as was the Garden of the Sleeping Giant. The highlight, however, was the visit to a local market. It was massive and the variety of products was mind boggling. The air conditioned van was a welcome relief from the hot, humid temperatures. However, the suspension needed repair/replacement because it was very difficult to hear the guide even with the use of a microphone because the van made so much noise travelling the uneven roads.
