We can highly recommend this tour! Ibrahim was such a good guide. He told us a lot about the history of the tea and sugar industry. The day flew by and we learned so much. It was also no problem to have an vegan lunch - Ibrahim took care of this. If your interesting in this tour ask for Ibrahim, it will be worth it!

Very professional experience from start to finish, including fast responses from the admin team. Our guide Ibrahim was a fantastic host and took us to the spots we hoped for, like the seven coloured earth, while also throwing in some unexpected surprises, like special plants and even guavas picked fresh off the bush (despite apparently being out of season). He was a hugely knowledgeable guide and a very friendly companion with answers to all our questions. I would happily recommend this tour as a great way to get to know the island.

Our guide was Christoff (sorry if I’ve not spelt it right!) he very friendly, had lots of information about everywhere we’d go, we really enjoyed our day. He turned up on time and was patient and happy to take a photo of us two for us! A memorable day in Mauritus :)
