Port Louis: Private Guided Sightseeing Tour

2. Port Louis: Private Guided Sightseeing Tour

This excursion will introduce you to the city of Port Louis, founded in 1735 by Mahe de Labourdonnais, where you will visit the historic Fort Adelaide also known as the Citadel. Built by the English in 1835 and is one of the few fortifications of British origin remaining on the island. From here, you'll enjoy a view stretching over almost the entire city.

It is the oldest botanical garden in the southern hemisphere, dating back to 1735.

What people are saying about Black River

Absolutely fantastic trip. Our guide was so knowledgeable and explained everything through the trip. We all felt very safe being guided through the markets and loved seeing the sights of Port Louis. There were 7 of us travelling as a family a family and our guide look lots of photos of us all together. At the botanical gardens, our guide knew everything about all the plants and we had a great time learning about the palms and smelling all the spice plants. He was great with our youngest child and made him feel very special. The vehicle was comfortable and the driving great. The communication from Carine when arranging the trips was so informative and reliable that we used this company to book another 2 trips after we arrived. Thank you

Hotel pickup was on time. After a few minutes we saw dolphins. It is exhausting to keep up with the dolphins, so you should be able to swim well. Just seeing the dolphins from the boat was amazing. The coconut island was beautiful and the barbecue was really delicious. Suddenly a whale jumped up on our boat. That made this perfect day even better! We were able to watch the whale for at least half an hour and he even had a baby with him. Breathtaking experience!

Maravillosa experiencia para nadar con delfines. La recogida en el hotel muy puntual y el transfer al hotel fantástico. La barbacoa es de 5 estrellas, en una isla de ensueño. Vistas y experiencias muy recomendables. La pena que como españoles nadie hablaba nuestro idioma, pero con el inglés nos entendíamos.

Really great trip! We swam with dolphins, did coral diving and then drove to the beautiful island. There was BBQ, extra vegetarian for us. A great holiday memory!

Very very good experience, the locals we were with were great And the final surprise (with luck of course) the whales ❤️
