Very nice visit!

Nice visit, excellent guide who gives a lot of interesting information! The only downside is the unplanned visit to a museum on the manufacture of model ships which in reality is a pretext to make us wander through a huge expensive souvenir shop. Fortunately, we avoided visiting a jewelry store that was also not planned! Big tourist trap which makes us lose 30min. But the rest of the day at the top!

Discovery of the real Mauritius.

Fantastic experience from start to finish, treated like royalty, but also as a friend. Both our guide and driver shared their home of Mauritius with us, also introduced us to local food and culture. And then shared their lunch with us, and we can only thank them both for a fantastic day and the enhancement to our holiday in Mauritius. And would highly recommend this company to organise anyone’s trips whilst in Mauritius. Thank you from Julie and John Bedford UK.
