Comments from previous guests:
The tour with Epi to Lovoni Village was the cultural highlight of our
Visit to Fiji. Really great! Epi is a very knowledgeable guide . Lunch
in a Fijian home, meeting with the chief of Lovoni and a swim makes
this tour a must.

not miss the Lovoni hike with Epi. You will be
treated as a guest and not as a tourist.
