The tour was well organized and the guide was funny and friendly! We got to taste several street food snacks(sweet/savory/fruity) and heard some stories about Mauritius. Pay extra attention to the tiny Port Louis’s oldest patisserie, which you would have never spotted yourself in the city. Super cool! A small but thoughtful thing: the guide offered us wet napkins to clean hands after tastings :) Overall it is a great tour if you want to learn about the country through its diverse and delicious cuisine. I recommend for sure!

Great guys, great to hear the history as well as we walked around, and food was mostly delicious, just a couple things didn't hit the spot for me personally, but still 100% worth doing!! My only suggestion would be to get us to introduce ourselves and where we are from at the start, so we all know each other and it makes for more of a 'group' feel, rather than us having to do this ourselves.

My 2 children aged 19 and 22 had a great time with our guide, Dada! A mix of guided tour of Port-Louis and discovery of typical Mauritian dishes. We recommend this activity. Thanks to Dada for its availability and adaptability!

Very well organised. Dada, our guide, was exceptional, very informative and entertaining. We learnt a great deal about Mauritius history and culture and enjoyed some great street food. Highly recommended.

It was a great combination of seeing different parts of the town & trying different food.
