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

A magic moment! Kévin was incredible with us, helped us during the ascent, while telling us the story of Mauritius and it was just perfect! The view at the top is breathtaking, and that's where all the effort pays off. We were able to take advantage of several minutes at the top to take pictures which are magnificent, and to enjoy the sunrise. 5:30 a.m. is the perfect time to start the ascent because the colors are at their best when the sun is rising. I advise everyone to do it! Thanks again to Kevin who made this moment unforgettable!

Bryn was an incredible host. He's very knowledgeable, entertaining, caring and insightful. He made the experience (which is already stunning) even more special and memorable with his unique insight and genuine passion. His photos were a big differentiator too - very impressive skills from some unique angles! I cannot recommend Bryn any more. Le Morne is also stunning, a beautiful mountain that is superbly well maintained - a must visit for any Mauritius holidayer.

Incredible hike with amazing views!! Not an easy climb, but our very knowledgeable and experienced guide Kevin made it easier and safer. He is very patient and encouraging and he looks after his people from the group. Also, a small and very interesting history lesson is included.

A must experience on the mauritius for everyone who likes wandern and bit of climbing - the view from the mountain on the bay is unique. The Guide Bryn is very experienced in mountain climbing and makes the trip to a safe trip.
