Super tour. Our driver was on time and knew everything about the sights and spots. He was very helpful in explaining and gave us ample time to explore on our own. He helped click some good pictures of us too. The tour covered most of the stuff and very happy with the tour and price.

My wife, friend and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The driver was friendly, knowledgeable and incredibly flexible - stopping whenever and wherever we needed to. We needed a drink, he stopped. We wanted to buy lychees, he stopped. We wanted to take pictures of the landscape, he stopped. The tour itself has just the right number of sites of interest - not too many, not too few - each with its own unique appeal.

A relaxing day out exploring the natural wonders of Mauritius, such as the volcanic crater, waterfalls, enchanting sands of Chamarel, and simply just some stunning views. Other highlights of the region included rum tasting, model ship factory, Hindu temple and sacred lake visit, and also a traditional Mauritian lunch. Deepak was a lovely warm, knowledgable and very accommodating host. Was also great to travel in comfort with aircon and wifi too! Great value for money :)
