Private Legend Of Suva

Product Image
Suva is the capital of the South Pacific island nation of Fiji. Offering broad avenues, lush parks and grand British colonial buildings, the lively Municipal Market offers a range of local fruit and vegetables. At the Fiji Museum, set within the Victorian-era Thurston Gardens, see examples of traditional canoes, war clubs and tattooing tools.

Private Legend of Suva

This private, scenic tour allows you to experience many of the highlights Suva is known for. View the Parliament House, see the Battery gun site at Nasonini and drive through to Nausori town. See other areas of interest such as Fiji's first sugar and rice mill, drive the Princess Road into Suva City and make a stop at the Fiji Museum for a tour and refreshment.

You will be greeted directly at the pier area by your local, knowledgeable and friendly representative and soon will be on your way for a day full of new adventures and exploration on this private tour option. Begin with a drive through Nasese to the old Parliament House, built in the 1930's, this art deco style building is decorated with beautiful artwork throughout. Continue 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.

Next up is a scenic drive along Princess Road to Suva City. 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.

Before your day is over, stop at the Fiji Museum. The museum showcases the diverse history of Fiji from the sailing expeditions to current day modern history. Be sure to snap a photo of the 13 meter double hulled canoe. 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.

Please Note: Vehicles available for this tour accommodate groups of up to 4, 8, 15, or 25 guests maximum. Groups with more than 25 guests will need to book multiple vehicles. Please take this information into consideration when booking.

We are experts in providing exceptional shore excursions. We understand that in today's fast paced world, vacations have become an increasingly important way to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and experience new and interesting places. With this in mind, we provide the highest quality tours by performing extensive research, and detailed reviews. While other companies also offer excursions, we strongly believe our expertise and approach set us apart. The large cruise lines sell shore excursions - typically in very large groups visiting high traffic sites. We focus on smaller groups visiting more interesting and authentic locations using more personalized local operators. While the cruise lines are experts in delivering cruises, we are experts in delivering shore excursions.

For those customers who prefer to travel in smaller groups with more personalized service, we offer a wide variety of small group tours around the world.

While exploring the destinations and ports on this website, feel free to search for these "Small Group Tours". For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France. Our "City" tours allow travelers to see the highlights of great cities around the world with unique insights provided by our expert tour guides.
