New ride wins tourists over

VISITORS on board the MS Voyager of the Seas experienced a different way of sightseeing through Lautoka City by choosing to travel on a V8 Trek Tours Fiji vehicle.

Opting to travel on the four-passenger James D trike with a 350 Chev V8 engine, the visitors were taken on an hour-long tour of the Sugar City.

Allanna Jones of Sydney, Australia, said the ride offered a different experience.

"It's really good because I'm also disabled, so being on this ride is not only easier for me but also fun," she said.

"I really enjoyed myself."

The ride proved popular as all four vehicles available at the port were fully booked.

V8 Trek Tours Fiji employees at the Lautoka Port yesterday said all of the vehicles offer tours to Lautoka, Nadi and Sigatoka.

"We usually take them on different tours and for each the cost is different," said a staff member.

"Today has been a good day because even though we did not pre-book any tours, we still managed to get a full booking of our tours. Some of the tourists had to wait until one of the vehicles come back."

Waiting in line for their turn, married couple Ian and Kay Smith said they were excited to be in Fiji.

"This isn't the first time we're here in Fiji and it certainly won't be our last," said Mrs Smith.

"We've been coming several times but this time around it was a little different because we came on the cruise ship."

About 3400 passengers, 500 of them children, descended on Lautoka City to enjoy the sunshine and bargains on offer.
