    If you asked me at the start of 2016, 'would I settle for cold, limited showers every day' I would have said no. If you asked me at the start of 2016, 'could I live in village-like conditions and adapt to their everyday lifestyle', I probably would have... Read more

    Had a great time ! It was a really eye-opening and an amazing experience to be a part of straight out of school. The Fijian people were so warm and welcoming and the volunteers, interns and leaders, ditto. I only wish that I had gone for longer - the only... Read more

    GVI is overall an organized group, pre departure is really easy. I, however, after 2 trips will never do another trip with GVI. My trip to Fiji was incredible in that the locals were great and the school was great, but the staff were highly unprofessional... Read more

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Is there any specific cultural protocol we have to adhere to?

      In the Fijian villages, women must cover their shoulders and knees at all times. It is perfectly fine to wear short sleeved shirts as long as shoulders are covered. Sarongs and T-shirts or collared shirts are also fine. Men should bring a sarong for some occasions but it is a bit more flexible and they may not need to wear it all the time. Men should bring a short sleeved collared shirt to wear when in schools or at village functions. Most of the time it is acceptable for men wear trousers or shorts, however men will need to purchase a formal ‘sulus’ for school, official functions and on a Sunday’s when in village. As we live in the village, the dress code needs to be complied to all times. When not in villages, ie – weekend trips to resorts and towns, both male and female volunteers are free to wear what they prefer

    • Will there be any free time on program?

      Most Definitely! In your down time you will be free to travel in the local area and you will be free on the weekends. In this time you could do day trips such as dolphin watching, visiting other islands, scuba diving, or relaxing in a near by resort. After your program there are countless attractions that can be reached after a day or two of travelling. You could travel to the capital city of Suva, take a ferry to Taveuni - 'the garden of Fiji' or explore the interior of VitiLevu– the possibilities are endless!

    • Are there any specific times when schools are closed and do the programs still run

      In the end of April/beginning May and mid/late August and December schools are closed. We always operate alternative activities such as holiday summer camps or doing maintenance task to ensure the upkeep of the centers which we work in. The base is closed from mid-December through to January and so there will be no programs running over this period
