Tour: The tour was amazing. Bryn's company has special access to the area which others companies don't have. That means that we were able to start earlier and fully experience the breathtaking sunrise. We also did not have to climb in the heat which is quite an advantage considering the fact that the volcano stones heat up during the day. The hike was really amazing with lots of viewpoints. It took us about 3 hours. The view on the top was our highlight of Mauritius. Words can describe it, you gotta experience it! Guide: Bryn was by far the best guide we've ever experienced in our lives! He loves what he is doing and was one of the most positive people we've ever met. He's quite knowledgeable and has years of climbing experience and we felt super save all the way. He took tons of great pictures and created an amazing video for us. Equipment: We definitely recommend to bring proper shoes, water (a backpack to carry it - you need your hands for some climbing passages) and sunscreen.

Amazing experience! We enjoyed the sights all way and the track itself was fun and so worth doing. Shout out and big thanks to our guide Bryn who made this experience this enjoyable. We got to learn on the way about Mauritian history and nature from him. On top, Bryn took great photos and videos of the whole group. Highly recommend this to everyone who visits Mauritius.

This was so much fun and the views were just amazing. Our guide was a real professional and I really suggest to go with him or at least take some other professional guide with you. It isn't very easy hike.

Amazing experience - Bryn was great and we loved the entire morning. Fab hike - very sweaty and hot - but really enjoyed it and Bryn took some fantastic photographs! Thank you!
