Port Louis: Private Guided Sightseeing Tour

1. 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. Your next stop will be a visit to the central market (also known as the bazaar). Here you will be amazed by the variety of products you will find - fruits, vegetables, scent sticks, spices, pashmina, and linen are amongst the most sold products. Your next stop will be at the Caudan Waterfront, a modern precinct facing the harbor. Its 170 boutiques display beautiful collections of local designers and famous brands. Its craft market is an open bazaar, impregnated by exotic scents of spices, souvenirs, and basketry. Then, visit the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden, renamed Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden, and the highlight of any visit to the north. It is the oldest botanical garden in the southern hemisphere, dating back to 1735. Admire a magnificent collection of local and exotic plants, a variety of giant water lilies, rare plants from Mascarene, the baobab, giant palms, and the Talipot palm, whose flower only blossoms after 50 years.

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

We had a great day and highly recommend the tour and guide!

Ibrahim, driver and guide, excellent and kindness ++
