The tour was just great. We were picked up on time by a super friendly driver at the hotel in Le Morne. He explained a lot about the island to us on the way to Port Louis and, since we were at the meeting point a little earlier, showed us 1-2 spots that were not included in the tour and we were able to take photos. After that, our guide Paul and another couple set off on the “real” tour. Paul is super nice, funny, can answer any question and is well known all over the island. This is impressive. The tour itself lasted a good 7 hours and had hands and feet! In summary: absolute recommendation!

A nice tour. We were picked up on time and spent some time in Port Louis on the waterfront. After a small rum tasting we went to lunch (very pleasant location). Past pineapple fields we are then to the botanical garden. Paul was a very good and interesting guide. We were back at the hotel around 5:00 p.m.

We were picked up on time from the hotel. Driver and car were great. The tour entertaining and interesting. Our guide was German and therefore there were no language problems.

Excellent trip, great meal included an really knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended.

Very nice guide, good tour and very informative. Lunch was great!
