Such a challenging but exciting experience! It was only two of us and our guide Christophe was perfect! We had interesting conversations, he told a lot about Mauritius culture and history. He is a pleasant driver and his hiking/climbing instructions were superb! Climbing part was tough (the hike and climbing all together took around 3,5 hours and it was approx 8km round trip), at some parts the ascent was very steep and you had to use your hands. Please note that climbing experience is rather for sporty people. Also, I highly recommend to use hiking shoes, comfortable clothes and take with you a lot of water. It can be hot and also it can rain sometimes, so just take spare clothes and towel with yourself, because you def will get dirty and sweaty. I wouldn’t mind to use helmets for this activity, but it’s not offered for anyone. The view from the top is absolutely breathtaking and worth every hassle to reach there!

The tour was excellent. The guides were friendly and helpful. The locations we were taken to were wonderful and the guides ensured we got good snorkelling. We noticed too that our tour left earliest and got back to harbour latest, meaning we were out for the longest. The bbq lunch was incredibly generous and genuinely delicious. Our only feedback would be a recommendation to wear swim shoes as the beaches have a lot of loose coral on them, and a sign on the beach indicating the meeting point.

Our guide was on time with a large, very clean car at the hotel. He brought our wishes together in a tour that not only allowed us to do everything we wanted, but also saw a lot more. He was very friendly and informative about the island. He even came to the supermarket as an adviser and guided us to products from Mauritius.

had a perfect day with the Wind Dancer Catamaran crew. from start till end, they made sure we have all we need and fell perfect. the cruise was super smooth. food and drinks were delicious. recommend this tour to everyone visiting Mauritius.

Ibrahim was a very nice driver, he talked us about Mauritius' history a lot. We have seen a lot of what there is to seen about Mauritius. Very nice tour! Well recommended!
