This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Mauritius, Mauritius

Mauritius is not only known for its beaches, lagoons and reefs, there is eclectic range of hair-raising and heart-throbbing activities scattered throughout the island. Lets discover same at your own pace with the Mauritius a la car.

Pass By: Curepipe, Curepipe

Suggestion: Visit Curepipe.
Curepipe lies at a higher elevation, often referred to as the "Central Plateau". The town's name, Curepipe, is said to be originated from the French curer sa pipe, which translates to "cleaning the pipe".
Curepipe, though inland from the main coastal tourist areas of Mauritius, is nonetheless a tourist destination.
You can visit Trou aux Cerfs, a dorman volcano.
The manor house of the Domaine des Aubineaux was built in 1872 in a classic colonial style and now transformed into a museum.
Curepipe Botanic Gardens (or SSR Botanical Garden of Curepipe) ,the second largest botanical garden in Mauritius.

Pass By: Port Louis, Port Louis

Suggestion: Visit Port Louis.
If you are wondering what’s the best place to learn about Mauritian history and culture, it has to be Port Louis, the capital of Mauritius. It is the smallest of the island’s 9 districts and certainly the warmest town.
The places that you can visit are La Place d’Armes, an historic place but also very busy because the road that runs through it, connects the south and north of the city center.
The Caudan – Port Louis Waterfront, a home to a very special museum, the famous Blue Penny Museum.
The central market, the hottest and liveliest place in Port Louis. The museum of Aapravasi Ghat listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2006, this place was used between the nineteenth and twentieth century to accommodate indigenous migrant workers.

Pass By: Savanne District, Savanne District

Suggestion: Visit the South part.
Although relatively undeveloped compared to the other regions of the island, the Southern part of Mauritius is perhaps one of the most interesting for visiting. The South is ideal for the green landscapes and for those who want to see the wilder side of Mauritius.

Pass By: Flacq District, Flacq District

Suggestion: Visit the East Coast.
Touristy, but less commercial than the north, the East coast will bring you around traditional and slow-paced villages like Grand Rivière Sud-Est & Bois des Amourettes.
It showcases the Mauritian kind of life that opens way to spirituality, fishermen in pirogues and washerwomen in the river washing even thoughts.

Pass By: Grand Baie, Grand Baie

Suggestion: Visit Grand Baie.
In Mauritius, when we speak of “the north”, Grand Bay is the first thing that comes to mind. Grand Bay, through sustained development, has become the premier tourist destination of Mauritius.
The village has restaurants and lively bars. Vendors at the Grand Baie Bazaar sell handicrafts.

Pass By: Mahebourg, Mahebourg

Suggestion: Visit Mahebourg.
The city of Mahébourg invites visitors for a walk in its beautiful cobble-stone waterfront, where local fishermen spend their days on their wooden pirogues. The village has witnessed the only Napoleonic naval victory over the English in 1810.

We booked this sitting in our hotel having used the site once before for transfers in Europe. The tour was contracted out to a company called "connections". Our driver Zul was fantastic!! Very friendly and gave us lots of information about the island and attractions. A great way to see the island.

Lovely day, we had a really friendly driver who accommodated our wishes and fit as much as he could around our helicopter trip that we had booked on same day. He took us from balaclava down to the south for our tour fitting in the crater, and temple on the way down. And then he took us to 7 coloured earth, chamarel and the rum place on the way back. he stopped so we could take pictures of monkeys and to randomly pick us some fruit from a tree at the side of the road as we had not tried it before, he was very informative and made our day so special.

The itinerary was perfect. It was exactly as if I were driving the car and making decisions about where to go. It was my car and my driver and I was free to say when and where to stop for photos or other locales.
