What people are saying about Rivière du Rempart District

Absolutely fantastic trip. Our guide was so knowledgeable and explained everything through the trip. We all felt very safe being guided through the markets and loved seeing the sights of Port Louis. There were 7 of us travelling as a family a family and our guide look lots of photos of us all together. At the botanical gardens, our guide knew everything about all the plants and we had a great time learning about the palms and smelling all the spice plants. He was great with our youngest child and made him feel very special. The vehicle was comfortable and the driving great. The communication from Carine when arranging the trips was so informative and reliable that we used this company to book another 2 trips after we arrived. Thank you

We had great fun today! Chris is a fun and experienced guide and was able to give us a very special experience. The tour takes place with a maximum of 8 people, we had a really cool group with other Europeans! After paddling through the mangroves for some time, you could optionally snorkel halfway for colorful fish. Later we dismounted and could walk around the island a little, there was even water and a little refreshment. Really great! Attention: For people without a car - there is no direct bus route to the meeting point. The nearest station is Goodland. It's best to contact the provider, they'll even pick you up :-) And: you should be a bit fit, current and wind can be a bit challenging. All in all recommendable!

We had an incredible day with Christopher our guide. The peace, the nature together with paddling were a wonderful experience. It's really hard to describe it all. You have to have experienced it. You can tell Christopher really loves what he's doing. He showed us beautiful nature and told us the history of this island and believe us...it is more interesting than some towns. We recommend that you let them tell you. A note: You can go swimming, swimming and snorkeling on the tour. With the high salt content of the water, it's less fun without goggles and snorkel. So pack it up! Maybe that could be included in the description.

Great tour to the beautiful islands in the north. Perfect for snorkeling! The food, the drinks and the atmosphere were great.

Lots of fun, very nice people, yummy food. Dont forget your sunscreen.
