Full description
Spend the first part of the day exploring the capital city of Mauritius, Port Louis. Climb up to Fort Adelaide, known as 'The Citadel', a 19th-century military fortress which features a walled courtyard and panoramic city views. Then head into the central market, the Grand Port Louise Bazaar & China Town for a stroll around. Marvel at the impressive array of clothing, local vegetables, and exotic spices. Continue your shopping excursion at the splendid Caudan Waterfront. In the afternoon, pay a visit to the beautiful gardens at the Grapefruit Botanical Paradise. Then continue along the northwest coast via the Tamil Temple, Choisy Beach, and Grand Baie. Make a stop at Cap Malheureux, a village located in the Rivière du Rempart District to see The Palatial Red Church, a Roman Catholic Church famous for its vivid red roof against the bright turquoise sea and azure sky. Opt to pop into L'Aventure Du Sucre or the Sugar Factory Museum, where you can discover the history of sugar production in Mauritius and taste local products. Or perhaps make a stop at the majestic Chateau de Labourdonnais, one of the most beautiful colonial houses of the island inspired by Italian neo-classical architecture. Lunch fees are not included in the tour, however, your driver will provide you with a variety of restaurant suggestions according to your tastes. Feel free to request a stopover at any other restaurant of your choice at any point during the day.

Our guide Kevin designed the day according to our needs. We wanted to see a Tamil temple, he took us to the temple, We wanted to see the coast, he incorporated the north coast into the tour. Was a lot of fun. The only drawback, which was also an advantage... we did the tour on Sundays and all the shops were closed. However, the central market was open and we were able to take the mood there with us. The advantage on Sunday was that we had hardly any traffic (where you would otherwise be stuck in traffic for at least an hour) and we could watch the locals partying on the beach. Highly recommended tour

We really enjoyed the excursion. It was interesting to get to know the capital. We also really liked the botanical garden. The booking and pick-up worked perfectly. Unfortunately we had to contact the provider again to ask about the final pick-up time. The guide spoke good English but was very difficult to understand at times. We would recommend the excursion despite the minimal flaws.

We had the most amazing trip with our guide Raj! He didn‘t let any stone unturned and we were able to make many core memories. Everything worked perfectly well (he arrived on time, brought us to the nicest spots & we could eat a wonderful meal for lunch) and Raj is a wonderful, kind person! Everytime again!:)
