Tour Details

Highlights of Suva

Discover how Suva became the fascinating multicultural and cosmopolitan city that it is today on this Suva highlights tour. Ride through a mix of colonial and modern architecture as you visit the Old Parliament House, Nasonini Battery Gun Historical Site, a local farmers market, the Fiji Museum, and Thurston Gardens.

Your tour beings with a scenic drive out to the Old Parliament House. This art deco style building is decorated with beautiful artwork throughout. Then head over to the Battery Gun Historical Site at Nasonini. Designated as a WWII Heritage site, this area was used during WWII to guard safe passage into the Suva Harbor. The guns used at the site, since removed by the government, were the biggest military guns available at that time.

Pass by the University of the South Pacific as you make your way through the scenic town of Nausori. Visit Fiji's first sugar and rice mill, built in 1872 following the collapse of the cotton industry. While in Nausori check out many exotic fruits and vegetables at the local market.

Take a photo of the statue of Fiji statesman and WWI hero Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna in front of the government buildings after a scenic drive through Suva City.

Enjoy a relaxing walk through a myriad of trees at Thurston Gardens. Created on the grounds where the original village of Suva once stood, these gardens contain 20 types of ornamental trees and 17 types of palms.

Great Day in Suva
April 21, 2020
This excursion met all expectations. It was a small group and we did a really nice overview of the island. Good companions, good guide and a great day. We even managed to miss the rain by perfect timing by our quide.

We were in an SUV as there were only 4 people and our guide was very informative. Took us to a market, explained the different fruits and vegetables we don't have in Australia. He showed flexibility as there were only 2 couples.The guide had great knowledge of Fiji, warm and friendly.Highly recommend him.

This tour was excellent. Really enjoyed this tour. No insect repellent was needed. Both guide and bus driver knew alot of the history. We visited a market with lots of local produce and fish. People were weaving and doing local crafts, so we could see how they live daily. Highly recommend.

This was your average motor coach excursion. But we had a great guide so I have nothing bad to say. She made this a good informative tour, and was so kind.

Thank you to Amy and Aneal for a great day. Unfortunately for us the weather was not on our side and the tour to the gun memorials were very dangerous because of the inclement weather but the rest of the tour was amazing and Amy was a friendly and caring hostess.
