Full description

Visit the most Instagram-worthy locales on with a route tailored to your pickup location with this full-day car tour of Mauritius. Discover the vibrant colors of local markets and botanical gardens. See a temple in Ganga Talo, multi-colored sand dunes, and Chamarel Falls.

Be picked up from your hotel in Mauritius and set off on a full-day adventure in a comfortable car. Stop by the Umbrella Square in Port Louis to amble through bustling markets that are shaded by a swathe of colorful parasols.

Head over to the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden, home to some 500 species of plants from around the world, including the rare Talipot Palm, which is said to only flower once in its 60-year lifetime.

Travel to Ganga Talo, the most sacred Hindu site in Mauritius, containing a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Gaze up at breathtaking statues that stand over 100 feet tall. Next, visit 7 Colored Earth, a collection of sand dunes characterized by layers of colored sands.

Cap things off with a trip to the Chamarel Waterfalls, the largest single-drop waterfall in Mauritius, with a height of over 300 feet. Afterwards, be transported back to your accommodation.

We had an amazing time on this tour. Our tour guide Rajj was exceptional and very very patient. The best tour guide ever. We went to all the places mentioned and even made an additional stop at the Chamarel Rum Distillery. A tour we will never forget. Thank you so much Rajj and for the pieces of advice you gave us

The tour was awesome, our guide Deepak was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a nice talk and he shared very useful and interesting information with us. We managed to visit Port Louis, the Botanical Garden, which my 5yo son enjoyed very much. And also a nice restaurant, the waterfall and the coloured earth of Chamarel. And a great viewpoint as well. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone 👍
