The tour was easy to book and the confirmation with the pick up time came on time. Our guide for the day was Premnath, a very nice and pleasant fellow. His knowledge of German was very good and he is very experienced, which made the whole tour very enjoyable. He could really answer almost every question. Of course, such a trip always includes some typical tourist points, but due to the free decision (we had booked the private tour) it wasn't that bad.

We went with Paul and it was great!! He told and explained a lot to us about Mauritius, always gave us enough time to take photos at the points and the lunch was great too! We would book the trip again and again!

It is really an experience worth doing this tour. You can see a lot of the island and we even saw a monkey. The Indian food was just great and super tasty.

My best excursion in Mauritius!! Breathtaking landscapes, a TOP guide, special dedications to BABOO and SAMTOURS TRAVEL. I highly recommend !

Tour guide was very good. A successful and beautiful trip.
