Optional Day Tour (Not Included) – Savai'i Sites & Personal Chef

Savai’i is a paradise on Earth where you’ll get real insight into the traditional Samoan way of life. Time in Samoa runs slow, but in Savai’i it’s even slower. Samoa’s largest island is known for its pristine scenery and offers natural gems aplenty: lush rainforest teeming with bird-life, secluded white sand beaches, turquoise lagoons, lava fields, thundering waterfalls, archaeological sites, caves and spectacular blowholes.

Your food-focused tour provides a unique opportunity to explore Samoa’s food culture and beautiful landscapes. The Chef will bring along organically grown, seasonal fruit and vegetables as well as fresh seafood – the ingredients for lunch later on in the tour.

Your tour starts with an early morning transfer from your hotel to the ferry terminal, where you will board Lady Samoa for a trip across the Apolima Strait to the “Big Island” of Savai’i. Then it’s on to visit some of Savai’i’s amazing locations. At one of your chosen locations, the chef will prepare your lunch fresh on-site as you explore the grounds.

Site options include: Blowholes, Saleaula Lava Fields & LMS church, the turtle sanctuary where you can swim with turtles, Afa Au’au Waterfall, Amoa Resorts Pier, Lusias Lagoon, and Manase Beach. Just let your Destination Specialist know which sites you want to see most and your tour guide will work to fit it all in!

3 Nights' Accommodation on Natadola Beach, Fiji

This luxurious resort on the most magnificent beach on the island is the sheer essence of Fiji. Your king-sized bed sits beside a glass door opening right to the pristine Natadola Beach. Enjoy meals made from seafood direct from the sea and fruit direct from the trees in your resort’s enticing restaurant, where your mouth will water as your toes dig into the soft sand on an impeccable beach. Superb chefs cook up the best local dishes, as well as Western and Asian cuisine, including delectable Indian Tandoori. This resort is quite simply the paradise that you envision when you close your eyes and dream of a world away from your arduous work life.

On this impeccable beach, a local villager trots his horses through the sand offering rides to tourists. The best golf course in the South Pacific is just a few minutes away where the fairway runs alongside the stunning coastline, making one whole side a sand trap that you might actually aim for to take an impromptu walk on the beach. Non-motorized water activities are all complimentary and your resort will be happy to set up any excursions you may want to partake in. This island getaway is exciting, relaxing, and highly convenient all at once.

Optional Day Tour (Not Included) – Sigatoka River Safari

You will begin your journey from your resort and transferred to Sigatoka. From there you’ll enjoy a scenic cruise into the Sigatoka valley, discovering the fertile area known as the salad bowl of Fiji.

You’ll board the jet boat and begin your journey up the Sigatoka river. Your informative guide will inform you of the history of the region, including its cannibal past! You will be able to see fish and rocks lining the river bottom.

Upon arrival at the village destination, you will receive a warm welcome by the villagers and take a tour of the village. You'll enjoy a sampling of the local food, prepared by the ladies of the village. You'll have a chance to mingle with the villagers, play games with the kids and learn more about the Fijian way of life. You may want to consider bringing a gift of books, toys or school supplies for the children.

Your village visit ends with traditional Fijian singing and dancing, then it’s time to board your jet boat again for the return trip filled with fast and exciting 360 spins and photos!

Optional Day Tour (Not Included) – Off Road Cave Safari Tour

This half day experience will enable you to get a glimpse of Fiji as it was and now is.

You will be taken on a journey of discovery that includes crossing the mighty Sigatoka River via a “push push punt” and then heading deep inland on board your guided off-road vehicle.

Your ATV driver will start your journey along the road less traveled by sharing their knowledge and stories about the nearby villages and what life in the village is like. Along the way you are able to see locals going about their daily lives.

Then after some 35 minutes on the road less traveled, you will arrive at the bete’s or high priest’s home. Your guide will be on hand to explain or answer any questions you may have on Fijian traditions and customs.

After the kava ceremony, the priest along with your Off Road Cave Safari guide will lead you to the entrance of the Naihehe Cave, a mere 5 minute stroll away. The cave is more than 170 meters long and as you go through the initial small opening and into a small cavern, you will soon find yourself in a larger part of the cave.

After exploring and learning all about the Naihehe Cave, you will proceed to the priest's house where a mouth watering barbecue lunch complete with fresh fruit and juice awaits you. Bring along a change of clothes as you are bound to take a swim in the nearby fresh water swimming hole as you enjoy the company of your new friends.

Darin was helpful and picked a real winner with Navutu Stars. It was perfect! Yatule and Qamea were also wonderful, but our favorite was Navutu. Overall, the trip planning went well with Darin. I felt that a few emails with questions were ignored or overlooked. Fiji is an amazing place with truly beautiful people and gorgeous reefs under crystal clear waters. I would advise any snorkeling lovers to put Fiji on your bucket list!

Arranged a trip to Fiji with Darin. We had a wonderful time and the trip exceeded our expectations. Every detail was arranged and in place as planned. We could not have asked for anything more. Would very highly recommend to others.

We stayed 5 nights at Paradise Resort on Tavenui and dove Rainbow Reef. Although the ride from the airport was over rough road for about an hour, the resort, people, and food were wonderful! The House Reef is "regrowing" after the 2016 Cyclone Winston, but the 30 minute boat ride to Rainbow Reef was easy and put you on magnificent dive sites, some with 100% coral coverage. It is "drift diving" so you see a lot of the sites. My favorite was the all day trip we made with two dives in the morning and the surface interval spent with a picnic lunch on a deserted island before the afternoon dive! One warning....do not expect to always be able to dive the "White Wall" as it is dependent on tides and moon cycle.
The second site we dove was the Wanananvu Beach Resort on the main island of Viti Levu. This is different in that they anchor on the Reef and the sites further away seem to be better, but you can't always get there because of wind. The diving was also terrific here with healthy coral reefs and lots of fishes. Food, room on the beach, and people were perfect!

We truly enjoyed our trip to Fiji. We travel often and About Australia made the trip easy and enjoyable by providing the travel itinerary. They were very friendly and helpful and provided the necessary travel documentation in a timely manner. We will definitely use them again. The only suggestion I would have is timing. We arrived at the hotel from San Francisco approximately 6:30 a.m. and our room was not ready until 2:00 p.m. and they could not move us to another room because they were at 110% capacity. We were quite tired from the long trip so it was very inconvenient. The same thing happened on our check-out date. We at to check-out at 11:00 a.m. however our flight did not leave until 10:10 p.m. and they were at 98% capacity so we could not get a late check-out time. I suggest working out check-in and check-out times better with the hotels for clients that have long flights and arrive very early or leave very late. That was very frustrating. That is the reason I did not give you five stars.

Fiji Travel Agent Review

Our trip was planned so carefully and perfectly. We were able to see and do everything we wanted within our time limits, and Joanne was such an asset in helping us figure out what was most important. There were no issues at all on our trip, and everything went smooth and kept us relaxed the entire vacation. Can't recommend this Travel Agency enough!

Fiji Travel Agent Review

Amazing experience! Everything was perfectly planned and laid out for us. Shout out to Stephanie M for always giving a quick reply and always being extremely helpful and friendly.

Fiji Travel Agent Review

Josh helped us put together a 2.5 week trip to Australia and Fiji and our trip was absolutely perfect! All of the day tours we went on were small, and locally run which made them even more enjoyable. They took the stress out of planning an international vacation and even helped us work through some visa hiccups. Overall, highly recommended and I couldn't have been happier with our experience.

The entire trip was a huge success. Each one of the stops on the mainland of Australia, Tasmania and both islands of New Zealand were excellent. We booked our own flight to Sydney, and when we arrived, the About Australia voucher system took over. Each one of the vouchers were very clear and concise regarding when, where and how to proceed, so that there was never a frightening moment for us. Every flight, every shuttle, and every hotel worked perfectly. All excursions but one was at or above expectations, and that was simply a mix up in dates, which was resolved immediately. We would certainly recommend About Australia to anyone visiting Australia and/or New Zealand in the future.

We stayed at the Sofitel Resort and Spa. It is a beautiful resort. The staff is fantastic, always concerned your needs are being met. Service and food is plentiful,

Wether you're there to relax or want to join in daily activities it is your choice, no pressure, just a friendly environment to do as you please.

Fiji was like every single picture we saw...lush, green and mountains. The Fijian people were as warm and hospitable as the temperatures. We were so much in our element of resting and relaxation.
The only suggestion I have, is for About Fiji to communicate better with the hotel Hilton DoubleTree Sonasaila. When we arrived at 730am, our rooms weren't ready, nor were there any accommodations for us to properly rest. We had to 'hang out' until 3 pm in the lobby.
If this is a regular occurrence, may I suggest that About Fiji mention this to your guests. Suggest guests arriving at the hotel this early be prepared. Have the hotel be better prepared for the early-arriving guests. After traveling for 20 hours, a shower would have been most welcome. (Though the warm chocolate chip cookie was SO delicious!). Thank you!

The resort was very nice, the room was large and well appointed! If you are there more than two or three days, definitely schedule excursions as you WILL get cabin fever! Snorkeling and boat trips to other islands from the marina were great!
