Firstly, you should book your trip with Sailen. Sailen gave us one of the best experience in Mauritius 🇲🇺! This is something totally different from the beaches and the trips over the sea, which by the way you totally have to book, to explore the origins of Mauritius and the tee plantation, sugarcane production and of course the rum 🍹 Money well spend!! Can recommend this trip with Sailen
