    Pick up was on time and the vehicle used was top notch. Ragesh, our guide, was great. He provided us with a lot of information and took our photos. The only issue was that he had the tendency to turn off the air condition in the car even after we requested it. Lucky that it was quite cool while in the mountains. Couldn't really figure out why he would switch it off most of the time. That's the only reason I'm giving him 4 stars.

We had a great day yesterday, learning lots of interesting facts about the culture and natural setting of the south - west coast of Mauritius. Our private tour led by Babu was fantastic! As we are nearing the end of the government restrictions from covid, we were so privileged to have a lot of these fantastic sites all to ourselves! All communications from booking, during the tour and since finishing the tour have been amazing! We could not thank the team enough for the lifetime of memories they have given us! That’s not to mention the food we were given, was absolutely fantastic! Ebony table D’Hote - were very accommodating with our meals and the food was delicious!

The great advantage of a private tour is that it gives you a flexibility, and this certainly did that. Tour guide Babu made sure we got to the attractions ahead of the crowds. The walking is easy, so suitable for all age groups. The lunch place did not look very promising from the outside, but the chicken curry served made up for it. Staff were very attentive.

We had great tour over the island. Our guide Dipa was super helpful. He was asking about our preferences, what we would like to see, was making a lot of suggestions. Highly recommend!
