What people are saying about Mauritius, Mauritius

The tour was an unforgettable experience, which we can only recommend to everyone. The hike was a big challenge but with Kevin's help and tips on climbing we pushed our limits and arrived safely at the top. The view is simply breathtakingly beautiful and rewards every effort. In addition, we learned a lot of interesting things about the flora and fauna and the history of Le Morne Brabant from Kevin. We were more than satisfied with the entire tour and can only recommend Kevin as a guide.

Just awesome!!! We recommend!!! We not only swam with dolphins but also with whales and were able to observe and accompany them for a long time. It was just fantastic to be so close to the animals. It is important for me to say that the crew NEVER chased or harassed the animals. We always kept a respectful distance and yet the animals crossed our path and swam around the boat and came close to us on their own.

We got to swim with dolphins which was amazing and then our guide took us to see all of the best attractions in the south and south west of the island. The guide was so informative and absolutely lovely!!

Very good hike, Kevin teaches us a lot about Mauritius and nature both in French and in English. Very good guide!

Amazing guide and great experience. Wouldn’t have wanted to do it with anyone else
