COMBO Tour: Robinson Crusoe Island Fijian Dance Show & Dinner PLUS 4 Hour Discover Nadi Private Tour
On this full day outing we've combined 2 great tours: You'll experience a fabulous evening dinner with Fijian dance show, fire sticks & knives on Robinson Crusoe Island. But before that, you'll take a tour around Nadi including the local fruit and veg market, mud pools and orchid gardens, all with your own private local tour guide. This tour runs on Monday, Wednesday and Saturdays only. It is not suitable for day cruise ship visitors to Fiji as the tour returns late at night to the hotels.
After being picked up from your hotel in an air conditioned car or mini bus by your local tour guide, your private tour of Nadi begins with exploring the orchids and tropical plants at the Garden of Sleeping Giant. The beautiful orchid garden started in 1977 by the late Raymond Burr, star of Perry Mason and Ironside. Originally designed to house Burr’s private collection of tropical orchids, the gardens have developed into a popular attraction after years of flourishing. Raymond Burr loved these orchids just as much as he loved Fiji.
Therapeutic Mud Pools
Just a short drive up the same road as the orchid gardens are the mud pools. Take a dip at the Sabeto therapeutic Mud Pools & Hot Springs followed by a traditional Fijian Bobo (Massage) by the Fijian ladies of Sabeto village (optional). In addition, local arts and crafts are on display for purchase.
Nadi Town Tour - Hindu Temple and Markets
Visit the largest Hindu Temple in the southern hemisphere, reflects an architectural style rarely seen outside India, and houses sacred statues designed by craftspeople brought over from India. After that, your private tour guide will whisk you off for a quick tour of Nadi town fruit and veg markets.
Robinson Crusoe Island - Fijian Dance Show, Lovo Dinner & Kava Ceremony
You will say good bye to your private tour guide and jump on the comfortable air conditioned coach for a 30min ride down the Coral Coast to the jetty for Robinson Crusoe Island. After a 40 min calm water cruise you'll not only enjoy a lovely sunset but arrive on the soft sands of the island. Watch as the lovo dinner is dug up with fire walking on hot stones. Partake in the traditional kava ceremony on the beach before dinner is served. You'll have a bit of spare time to explore the many things to do on the island. After dinner the show begins. Watch the boys juggle fire sticks and knives, they make it look so easy, it’s awesome.
