The hiking trip was a great experience. We had read a lot before about how difficult or even dangerous it could be for unexperienced hikers. So we decided to book a guided tour and that was the right decision. Yan did a fantastic job. With his advices we managed to climb Le Morne Brabant without any conflicts. Of course, a few passages were really challenging but we did not feel uncomfortable in any situation. Thanks for that Yan! We can really recommend the guided tour! It is worth it! And for all that are unsure: Do not overestimate yourself, book a guided tour =)

The tour was amazing. Especially the Tour Guide Jeremie very was very professional and positiv. He made always stops when needed and took care of the group. Even though we had a lady in our group with Vertigo, Jeremie supported her all the time and managed to bring her to the top safely. I recommend this tour to everybody, it is a must do in Mauritius.

Kevin was excellent! He was professional and had a wealth of information about the history of the island and the culture. He was constantly making sure we were safe and using the correct parts of trail to navigate. I would highly recommend this booking for anyone looking to explore and learn about the mountain.

Absolut empfehlenswert!! Cooler Guide, erzählt auch viel über die Pflanzen. Wanderung war wirklich super, sollte allerdings nicht unterschätzt werden

Really loved the hike. Our guide Kevin was incredible: attentive, motivating and fun. Would be very happy to try other hikes with him.
