Such a thrill ride! After a short tutorial, we were quickly on our way racing through sugar cane fields and enjoying the natural Mauritian beauty. We stopped for short breaks at amazing lookout points to capture photos. Our guide, Sangit, along with being an excellent guide, was a great photographer as well, making sure to get lots of different angles of us on our quads. Despite little experience on a quad before, we very quickly felt comfortable thanks to Sangit. The last stop was at a beautiful beach where we could go for a swim or stop by the shops for a snack. We highly recommend this adventure to anyone looking for a thrill in Mauritius. Make sure to bring good glasses and a mask as the ride can be dusty at high speeds.

We had already done a quad tour 3 days before but this is simply a lot better. If you do a quad tour in Mauritius then this should be a great route with a lot of variety and with the stops it takes 3 hours as stated. For us it was the highlight in Mauritius.

Had to wait in the morning until everyone was there. Then there was a short briefing, where I had the grief that it was too boring for my taste. But that was all perfect and a very eventful tour. Nice guides, would do the tour again and again.

The tour was great, so much fun driving the quad and going through this nice park. The guide was nice and friendly, we stopped to the waterfall where you can also swim. Totally worth it!

Cool tour of the south with unique points of contact
