You won't be disappointed!

We booked this tour at the last minute and I'm so glad we did. The spice gardens are just beautiful and quite tranquil. We were taken on an easy stroll through the gardens with a very informative narrative on spices, their health benefits and uses. On returning to the drop of site the locals had prepared lunch for us as well as a kava ceremony. The local people were so welcoming and warm. This isn't a long tour 3 1/2 hrs approx which suited us fine as it meant we could spend the afternoon on the ship enjoying the peace whilst most were onshore. The spice gardens will not disappoint.

Incredible experience

If you are visiting Fiji and looking for a trip the Spice gardens are not to be missed. The people who show you around these amazing gardens are so friendly , kind and genuinely want to share their knowledge with you. You are taken on a delightful and informative walk through the spice garden and given fresh coconut to drink the milk and eat the tender centre flesh. While all this goes on your lunch is being prepared cooked in a pit of hot stones. The traditional food is delicious and you will be entertained with traditional music, singing and instrumental playing. The warriors who dance for you are spectacular. The more you give of yourself the more you will get back from these wonderful people. I would go back tomorrow given the chance. Superb experience.

Best shore excursion in Fiji!
Apr 2016 • Couples
We cruised to Fiji on Voyager of the Seas in early April, 2016, and spent a day in Lautoka and then a day in Suva. Although Suva is quite a vibrant city, with excellent shopping for tourists, we preferred to take the morning tour to the Fiji Spice Gardens at Waindadoi. These gardens were set up by a Doctor Ronald Gatty to provide an economic venture for the local people. It is organically certified and spices are available for sale (and are allowed back into Australia. The nutmeg was checked for insects). It was a lovely morning, spent wandering around the garden and then we were entertained by musicians and dancers and tasted the local cooking (chicken cooked under coals, yam, breadfruit). I learnt more about Fiji than I had expected and would thoroughly recommend this tour. There was plenty of time in the afternoon to shop in Suva.

Beautiful Gardens, Wonderful People

We were thrilled to have the experience of visiting the Spice and Nature Gardens at Wainadoi on a group tour. The greeting we received by native Fijians was warm and genuine. We felt as if we had been welcomed into their home. The spice gardens were beautifully maintained. Vanilla and cinnamon, tropical fruits and exotic trees were among the plants we saw on our garden tour. The guides even picked and cracked open coconuts for our enjoyment. Prepackaged organic spices were available for purchase onsite. I only wish we would have had more time to visit with the people here. Their joyful singing was the highlight of our day.
