Full description

Visit the most Instagram-worthy locales on with a route tailored to your pickup location with this full-day car tour of Mauritius. Discover the vibrant colors of local markets and botanical gardens. See a temple in Ganga Talo, multi-colored sand dunes, and Chamarel Falls.

Be picked up from your hotel in Mauritius and set off on a full-day adventure in a comfortable car. Stop by the Umbrella Square in Port Louis to amble through bustling markets that are shaded by a swathe of colorful parasols.

Head over to the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden, home to some 500 species of plants from around the world, including the rare Talipot Palm, which is said to only flower once in its 60-year lifetime.

Travel to Ganga Talo, the most sacred Hindu site in Mauritius, containing a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Gaze up at breathtaking statues that stand over 100 feet tall. Next, visit 7 Colored Earth, a collection of sand dunes characterized by layers of colored sands.

Cap things off with a trip to the Chamarel Waterfalls, the largest single-drop waterfall in Mauritius, with a height of over 300 feet. Afterwards, be transported back to your accommodation.

The tour itself is well planned and includes the highlights of Mauritius. Our tour guide from Samtours was very friendly, explained everything well and even made a stopover with us at a tea factory, which was not on the program. The botanical garden was "beautiful", but in my opinion this destination is rather overrated. Personally, I think it's a pity that no more attention is paid to the maintenance of the facility. All in all, however, we spent a nice day on our tour in Mauritius and are grateful for this experience.

The Instagram Tour is also not suitable for those who are not familiar with Instagram. It shows the most important spots in one day, which is especially good if you don't spend too many days in Mauritius. However, we think the tour is a bit overrated, since the botanical garden in Pampelmousse, for example, doesn't look like it does in the pictures and the lilies look very battered. Umbrella Square in Port Louis could also be a save to see these 20 umbrellas. The guide, Deepak, was able to explain and describe a lot to us. He was very accommodating and nice. Overall, the tour is recommended because, as already mentioned, you can see all the sights in one day.

We were picked up on time by Deepak. All in all, a very nice tour with a pleasant mixture of exciting information, private small talk, but also enough time for two. There was enough time at each stop. The exception here is Port Louis. You can either save yourself the stop or spend a little more time and save time elsewhere. During the day, however, you don't have the feeling of rushing, but really exploring the country. An authentic Mauritian restaurant was suggested to us for lunch. The restaurant was the contact point for a large number of tourists who spend a similar tour (presumably the restaurant and the tour operator work together). However, the food was very tasty, we paid the equivalent of around €40 for 2 people. Overall, we really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it. Deepak answered all of our questions, was very personable and gave us a great day.
