Visit at the top with Ibrahim who knows the island by heart and who was able to tell us his story. In true communion with nature, he surprised us by making us discover coffee flowers, pink pineapples and many other things. Highly recommend if you want a full and detailed tour. Professional from A to Z. The only downside was the lunchtime restaurant where we were taken without much choice and expensive for what it is (17 euros for a rice/chicken dish).

Our guide was on time with a large, very clean car at the hotel. He brought our wishes together in a tour that not only allowed us to do everything we wanted, but also saw a lot more. He was very friendly and informative about the island. He even came to the supermarket as an adviser and guided us to products from Mauritius.

We spent a wonderful day with Seilan, you will not find a better driver and guide, he accompanied us throughout our excursion, his explanations, his kindness, his exceptional photography skills, we had a lot of fun with him, we recommend him 100%! Aude and William

Ibrahim is an extraordinary guide, which makes this visit unique. He is a lovely, reliable, funny and very very interesting man. Congratulations to him for his dedication, we will never forget that day!

Ibrahim was a very nice driver, he talked us about Mauritius' history a lot. We have seen a lot of what there is to seen about Mauritius. Very nice tour! Well recommended!
