Our guide was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and always provided us with a little history lesson about the area we were in, any landmarks or famous buildings we passed by etc. while the driver was professional and drove within the speed limit. I would highly recommend!

The well organised trip with our german speaking tour guide Gabriella was a nearly perfect day. The lunch at Chamarel was tasty and we had enough time at every station to enjoy the view, go for a walk and take loads of photos. Gabriella was a nice young woman who told us details of the inhabitants of Mauritius and some interesting facts about languages, culture, religions and local food.
To sum up, we think that this tour was the best one of our whole stay in Mauritius.

Excellent day out which we enjoyed very much. It was a full day but worth seeing other parts of the island. Natalie our guide was very knowledgeable and we were a small group. The driver was also very good. I booked the trip the day before on my iPhone via the app and everything went smoothly.
Lunch was good and included in the price.
I would recommend this trip but remember to take mosquito repellent with you to the Waterfall. This is the only place of the whole week I was bitten!
