Absolutely fantastic trip. Our guide was so knowledgeable and explained everything through the trip. We all felt very safe being guided through the markets and loved seeing the sights of Port Louis. There were 7 of us travelling as a family a family and our guide look lots of photos of us all together. At the botanical gardens, our guide knew everything about all the plants and we had a great time learning about the palms and smelling all the spice plants. He was great with our youngest child and made him feel very special. The vehicle was comfortable and the driving great. The communication from Carine when arranging the trips was so informative and reliable that we used this company to book another 2 trips after we arrived. Thank you

Our driver was excellent ..so attentive to our needs and took us wherever we wanted to go ..and always watching out for us. His time was our time and we went to Port Lois waterfront, viewpoint overlooking Port Lois and the Botanical Gardens ..then up to Grande Baie and followed the coastal road back to our hotel ..stopping off at a local supermarket for Mauritian rum ! Can't remember his name but he was excellent ..so a big thank you to him ..car was really comfortable and his driving was brilliant

Beautiful tour with crazy beaches (Grand Baie, Cap Malheureux and Mont Choisy) unique churches and temples (Notre Dame Auxiliatrice and Sri Daubadee Ammen) to finish with the Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens.
