What people are saying about Curepipe

Hello we booked the tour and it was flawless. Absolutely to recommend!!! You just have to be careful when you're being chauffeured to 'exclusive' shops, most of which all advertise high-quality cashmere goods. It's usually overpriced there, so it's best not to buy anything. Despite my animal hair allergy, they tried to sell something. All the sights were great, the weather played along and our guide was super nice and explained everything very well in German. Great praise at this point, also to the sovereign driver. Lunch was also delicious at the Rhumerie de Chamarel. Starters, main courses and desserts fill you up really well. Please do it, the tour is worth it

We had a really nice day. Our driver Ali was always very friendly and gave us a lot of useful information about Mauritius. We can absolutely recommend. The tea plantation, the rum factory and the colonial houses were worth a trip. Lunch in one of the colonial houses was really, really good.

Great tour with a very knowledgeable guide Ahmed who is obviously an incredibly proud Mauritian. Thanks for sharing your insights about this wonderful country
