Viti Levu: Mud Pool, Temple, and Sleeping Giant Garden

1. Viti Levu: Mud Pool, Temple, and Sleeping Giant Garden

Begin your day trip at the vibrantly hued Sri Siva Subramaniya Swami Temple, which is the largest Hindu temple in the southern hemisphere. Admire the traditional Davidian architecture and the painted wooden carvings of deities crafted by artists who traveled here from India. Continue your journey and stop at Nadi to visit a local handicrafts shop. Here, you can browse for souvenirs before making your way to the Namaka Market, where errand-running locals peruse colorful stacks of tropical fruits and vegetables. From there, head to the Garden of the Sleeping Giant to stroll through beautifully landscaped trails through lush gardens featuring more than 2,000 different kinds of delicate orchids. Your final stop is at the Sabeto Mud Baths, where you can soak in a mineral-rich mud pool and rinse off in the clear waters of a thermal hot spring. Relax on the ride back to your accommodation. A divine, gratifying, and soul enhancing experience is guaranteed.  Make a stopover at a local primary school to visit the children. Any stationary or donation will be much appreciated. Then visit Fiji's first Fijian Village where the ancestors landed, Viseisei Village. This is a very culturally rich tour that enables you to learn about the village lifestyle and the traditional Fijian culture.

From temple visit, to chatting with locals at the veggy market, some shopping and enjoying the sleeping giant's lovely garden, and then the mud pools, there was something for everybody on the tour bus, a full and enjoyable day. I even enjoyed the bus ride, especially when driving through areas that are clearly not touristy. Since I'm here only for a couple of days, this gave me some feeling for the place and the people and it was beautiful, even while I was struggling with jet lag! thank you

We booked the tour a night before and were completelly surprised and amazed with the tour,service and our guide. We are first time in fiji and with two small kids,but everything was organized really well. We appreciate all the help which was provided:) our guide told us a lot about Fiji and about everything wecoul see travelling around Nadi. Questions were always welcome. We feel that our guidemade an extra mile while talking and showing Fiji to us:) our guides name was Dave:)

Our Guide was very friendly, and took us to very interesting places. I recommend it as price and quality to get an idea of the island.

Our guide Dave was excellent. We enjoy the tour very mainly because of him.

So much fun! Dev was absolutely wonderful and we had a fantastic time!
