Your tour will begin at Nadi Airport where you board an air-conditioned vehicle and move north towards Lautoka, passing the lush sugarcane fields along the way.
The tour stops at the celebrated village of Veseisei which, according to legend, is the place where the first Fijians landed. Get down from the vehicle and take a walk through the village. Remember to say ‘Bula’ (the traditional local greeting) to the villagers!

You have an hour to explore the city at your own pace. Shop or have a meal at one of the local restaurants (payable direct) or visit the bustling marketplace.
