The south west tour was the first activity on my trip and the absolute best way to start. I got to see most of the Island's major attractions in one day. My guide Baboo was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to make the experience amazing. As a bonus, he takes incredible photos, after some inquiry, I discovered he studied photography. His a great guide.

A fantastic tour to see the attractions of the island. Babu has been a great guide, he has told us the history of the country and placed us in every corner we visited. The temple is wonderful, you breathe peace. The food is very tasty and the car is very comfortable. A 10 !!

The Guide Sandrine was really informative about the whole island and the history of mauritius. I personally enjoyed the black river national park, the lunch and view at le chamarel and the rhumerie the most. Was a great day trip!

Our guide was super friendly. We were able to take the time to see some places. The lunch was top notch with a wonderful view. Be careful with the dust on the other hand, but that's the real adventure.

An excellent tour taking in the beautiful sights of the south west and combining this with a rum tour and tasting. A very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Would thoroughly recommend.
