All communications from booking, during the tour and since finishing the tour have been amazing! We could not thank the team enough for the lifetime of memories they have given us!

    Pick up was on time and the vehicle used was top notch. Ragesh, our guide, was great. He provided us with a lot of information and took our photos. The only issue was that he had the tendency to turn off the air condition in the car even after we requested it. Lucky that it was quite cool while in the mountains. Couldn't really figure out why he would switch it off most of the time. That's the only reason I'm giving him 4 stars.

The great advantage of a private tour is that it gives you a flexibility, and this certainly did that. Tour guide Babu made sure we got to the attractions ahead of the crowds. The walking is easy, so suitable for all age groups. The lunch place did not look very promising from the outside, but the chicken curry served made up for it. Staff were very attentive.

My driver had a lot of knowledge about the island. The drive wasn't boring at all and I got learn several things about Mauritius on this tour.

Super organized. Very nice driver. Recommended to everyone. Thank you very much and gladly again
