Very good day tour, totally satisfied. We had a "private tour", just us (couples) and the guide. Above all, our driver / guide "Raj" contributed a lot to the great day out. A very polite, courteous and kind-hearted person. We were picked up from the hotel punctually at the agreed time, during the journey there was already a lot of information about flora and fauna and all our questions were also answered. At the respective stops we always had enough time to ask questions, look and read etc. The journeys between the stops were never boring either, we talked a lot, so it was very entertaining. We felt very safe and comfortable throughout the journey, and we would recommend the excursion with a clear conscience.

We had the most amazing trip with our guide Raj! He didn‘t let any stone unturned and we were able to make many core memories. Everything worked perfectly well (he arrived on time, brought us to the nicest spots & we could eat a wonderful meal for lunch) and Raj is a wonderful, kind person! Everytime again!:)

Oh this is a must. A full day, picked up from our hotel. I’m so glad we did it. Our driver was brilliant. What he didn’t know about the island wasn’t worth knowing. He answers all of my questions. Couldn’t fault him.

I would like to thank Deepak for his guide and help during the tour. He shared a huge amount of information with me about the beautiful Mauritius.

Wonderful experience with Christopher! We sampled an exceptional variety of regional and ethnic foods. Would highly recommend.
