Full description
Uncover and experience the real Grand Baie; a charming and authentic village full of history and delicious Mauritian food and drinks. Whilst here you will discover that few locals even know about the history of this coastal town. Grand Baie was once a wild coast where escaped slaves would hide and live off the land and sea. It later became a port of commerce for French landowners, and eventually the landing site for the English invasion. Explore the back streets of Grand Baie and experience the local life. You can discover some of the locals' favorite restaurants and food spots, and at each food spot taste a variety of local dishes. You can try the typical Mauritian rougaille, as well as tasty Creole curries and a pizza with a Mauritian twist. Towards the end of the tour you will even be treated to a fruity surprise for dessert. As you taste the delicious dishes and sip on refreshing local drinks, your guides will chat with you as you get to know one another.

It was a really good trip! We learnt so much about the history of Mauritius and the local village and so so much amazing food. We learnt and tasted local cuisine and from places we would have never found ourselves. The tour guides were so friendly and super fun. Would highly recommend. Thank you for a fabulous day that added so much to our holiday.
