What people are saying about Pamplemousses

We were picked up from our hotel on time. Then we went to the fortress, where we had enough time to take pictures. Since we were only a small group of 6 adults and one child, it was very relaxed. Our tour guide "minta" was terrific. She explained everything perfectly and also funny and exciting, it was also very interesting in Port Louis. The lunch in moca was great !!! The botanic garden and the sugar cane factory with rum tasting was also perfect.

This tour is a real experience as you get to know the nature and culture of the country in an entertaining way. It was also great for the kids (13 and 14 years), especially the market, as there is always free time available. The creole food was awesome. Our guide Manischa is great, speaks perfect German and explains very inspiring. Perfect day!
