After yet another cold winter you’ll be wishing you could skip straight to summer. Well you can by joining our solos only Fiji Island Adventure in early September 2021.

We’ve chartered a small ship just for Two’s a Crowd solos and together we’ll cruise the beautiful Fijian Islands from Denarau over 8 days – in fact only 61 solos and everyone will have their own cabin. No sharing with strangers. No couples and no tables for one.

Together we’ll explore the stunning Fiji Islands and stop at island villages for traditional ‘Lovo’ feasts, ‘Kava’ ceremonies and the opportunity to meet the locals and see how they live. Your Fijian crew go all out to make each and every guest part of the family, creating a uniquely friendly environment.

We’ll also have an onboard marine biologist and cultural expert to enhance your learning experience.

Plus we have a glass bottomed boat to take us to beautiful sandy beaches and see stunning coral cays. Daily snorkelling is also available if that’s your thing.

If you’re into food, you’ll be pleased to know that the food on the Reef Endeavour continually receives special praise. The focus is on fresh local seafood and produce complimented by a range international selections. Daily menus include breakfast buffets, buffet and BBQ lunches and a-la-carte or traditional Fiji dinners served in the dining saloon or on the outside deck. Freshness is assured, given the ship is at its homeport twice weekly.

Get a tissue ready when you bid farewell – the sound of the crew singing the ‘Isa Lei’ (farewell song) is bound to bring a tear to your eye, and instill wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.

So come along and replace the winter blues with turquoise waters, white sand and golden sunsets.

On a few of the less touristy islands, English may be spoken with some difficulty. Fijian or Hindustani (Hindi/Urdu) is spoken by most adults and children, and learning even a few key phrases will help you gain the respect of the locals.

Words and Phrases

Vinaka – “Please” or “thank you”, pronounced vee-nah-kah.
Moce – “Goodbye”, pronounced mow-they.

Currency

In Fiji the currency is the Fijian dollar – symbolized as FJD placed before the amount with no intervening space. Bills include: FJD5, FJD10, FJD20, FJD50. Coins include: 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents, 50 cents, $1, $2. ATM’s are plentiful and credit cards widely accepted.

Visas

Climate

Fiji has a warm tropical climate perfect for beachside holidays. Maximum temperatures rarely move out of the 31°C (88°F) to 26°C (79°F) range all year round. Southeast trade winds from March to November bring dry weather and the rainy season runs from December to April. On average there are 15 cyclones per decade, and two to four actually cause severe damage. They occur from November to April and with greatest frequency in January and February. There is more risk in the outlying northwest island groups.

Fiji does have a wet season, which is characterised by heavy, brief local showers and contributes most of the country’s annual rainfall. The wet season is normally from November to April and results from the southerly movements of the South Pacific Convergence Zone. Typically the smaller islands in Fiji receive less rainfall than the main Island with various amounts according to their location and size. Cyclones do occur in Fiji and are normally confined to wet season.

The best months for holidaying in regards to Fiji weather is late March through to early December.

Fantastic first solo trip

I had a fantastic trip. Absolutely loved Canada and Alaska. It's the first time I have travelled solo and was pleasantly surprised to find a bunch of people that all got on so well. Diane our host was great. She did a good job of getting us altogether for meals, excursions, shopping trips etc. I liked that she quietly got things done without being loud or "in-your-face". She was good at being one of us as well as our leader. Wendy, Canada/Alaska

Good balance of activities and spare time

Had a great time. Good mixture of organised activities and spare time. Diane was an excellent tour host. Russell the tour guide was great, very knowledgeable and personable with his insights into growing up and living in Canada. Sharon, Canada/Alaska

The trip was well organised, with a good mix of activity and free time. The scenery was spectacular and fellow travellers were a great bunch. Diane is a excellent host - helpful, courteous and above all a pleasure to know. I found her bubbly personality a bonus and can only speak highly of her. Gary, Canada/Alaska

I had a fabulous time

I had a fabulous time. Lake Louise and the hotel were magnificent. The cruise was excellent. Diane made sure that she was available for group meals and sightseeing, and was alway in good humour and great fun. I would recommend your company to everyone and am very interested in the Scandinavia  tour at the end of 2017.

Great holiday

What a great trip! I experienced so much and participated in all that was offered. I had read and reviewed as much as time allowed me but was not prepared for what the trip gave me and that is a better understanding of the beautiful people of both countries. - Lesley on Vietnam/Cambodia

In good company

I thought the suggestions for optional things to do, in the "free" time were very good. So good, we really ended up with very little free time. So much to do! - Mary on Vietnam

Can’t stop talking about my experience

I just feel so privileged to have shared with the Maasai the most awe-inspiring majestic sights and sounds of Africa. The fantastic memories will be with me forever. Maureen

The entire trip was one of the most enjoyable and exciting. Also so informative and educational. I was so pleased to make the trip. Wish I was over there in that magical place.  Marjorie

Delighted

I’ve just returned from the wonderful Kimberley trip.  It was my first experience with Two’s a Crowd and I was delighted.  Kay

A memorable trip of a lifetime, a wish fulfilled.  A fascinating cultural country steeped in history which I found totally enthralling.  Two’s a Crowd service was smooth and seamless.  Pam

Value for money

Value for money and outstanding co-operation from your staff and tour operators. Joan

Safe and secure and totally looked after

An awesome adventure for my first time overseas alone.  Leonie was excellent and both guides were also fantastic.  At all times I felt safe and secure and totally looked after.  Melinda

Well done Two’s a Crowd.

Leonie was an excellent host, the ideal person. I never felt any pressure to  be involved in every activity so I could explore alone during free time. Having 2 or 3 nights in most places was great – you could rest up or party. Well done Two’s a Crowd. Jenny

A completely different experience

It was a nice surprise holiday, a completely different experience from all my other holidays. Thanks. Piroska

I’ve had at least 10 travel agents.

In my travelling life, I’ve had at least 10 travel agents.  Two’s a Crowd is the first one where I haven’t had to correct anything in my travel documents.   Piroska

I’m so excited to have found you Two’s a Crowd.

“Finally. A travel company is recognising the needs of people like me”

This is perfect for me.

I really wanted to meet the people behind it

Two’s a Crowd on the internet was definitely meant to be!

I’m really enthusiastic about the niche you are determined to cover in the market, and have the feeling stumbling on Two’s a Crowd on the internet was definitely meant to be.

I find them inspirational

Excellent throughout.

The entire 14 days ran so smoothly from Two's a Crowd booking my flights to  airport transfers and then the 12 days camping in the Kimberley. Excellent throughout. Congratulations. Marjorie
