  • What You Can Expect

    There’s a lot to see and do on the small volcanic island of Mauritius in the middle of the Indian Ocean. This full-day custom tour is about as flexible as they come, offering a comfortable car and a private driver who will go anywhere you want.

    Before your tour, ask your driver to come up with a suggested itinerary, or let them know what you want to see so that the logistics can be arranged in advance. Then, on the day of your tour, meet at your hotel and set off in a private, air-conditioned vehicle to discover the island.

    See the Itinerary for a sample tour.


    Sample Itinerary:
    8am: Meet your private driver at your Mauritius hotel, then hop inside your air-conditioned vehicle and make your way to one of the island's tea plantations. Perhaps visit Bois Chéri, the first tea plantation in Mauritius. Visit the plantation, factory and museum, and discover how the industry has shaped the island. Hear, too, how tea is produced, from harvest and fermentation to drying and packaging.
    10:30am: Continue to Chamarel Waterfall, which plunges more than 328 feet (100 meters), making it the island's tallest fall. Pause by the thundering waters and snap photos. Then, head to the Seven Coloured Earth, a magnificent geological formation created by volcanic rocks that cooled at different temperatures.
    1pm: Break for lunch (own expense) in the charming village of Chamarel, and then make your way to Eureka, a perfectly preserved Creole mansion built in the 1830s, or the Sugar Museum and Factory, where you'll fain insight into the fascinating history of the sugar industry on Mauritius.
    3pm: Make for Ganga Talao, a scenic crater lake considered to be the most sacred spot for Hindus on the island. Marvel at the lake and the temples, shrines and statues dedicated to Shiva and other gods, and learn of the legends that have made Ganga Talao such a important pilgrimage site.
    Your full-day tour ends with a drop-off back at your hotel after roughly eight hours of sightseeing.

This tour is a very compact tour of southern Mauritius, you get to see tea plantation, the volcanic crater,7 colored earth, the biggest sacred lake in Mauritius and the Hindu temple, Chamarel forest, waterfall and village. As we had time, we stopped at the Illusion Museum which was close to Chamarel and took great photos! This tour is private for you in a brand new, air-conditioned car. The guide is really nice and shapes the tour exactly to your likings and things that you want to see. We had lunch at a local village restaurant and everything we tasted was amazing. This tour is definitely recommended.
