We had Shane as our tour guide and because we knew very little about Mauritius he organised our day for us. He gave us information about each place we visited and fully answered our questions about the island without bombarding us with too much information. He was also accomodating with our requests. We found the tour easy and informative. Shane was excellent both as a tour guide and a driver.

Our Guide Jason was incredible and really made us feel welcomed on the beautiful island of Mauritius. Jason told us as much information about the island as possible on the day and had some great local knowledge. Jason took us to everywhere we wanted to travel whilst making suggestions to ensure we saw as much as possible with our time. It was a day to remember.

My guide, Bishoff, was on time and showed me all the main sights on the island. Thanks to efficient route planning, we were able to visit a large number of points.

Our day trip with the German speaking driver was great. He made suggestions and also explained everything. Only to recommend.

Our trip was excellent with the driver that have planned with us our journey via the part of Mauritius island.
