We had an amazing experience on this tour with our driver/guide Raj who was friendly, knowledgeable and was an absolute delight to spend our day in Mauritius with. We were only in Port for 9 hours and in the time we spent with Raj we left feeling extremely satisfied with what we were able to see and do I highly recommend this day tour to discover the history and beauty of Port Louis and Northern Mauritius.

Very nice day accompanied by Yash, a very professional and friendly guide and driver. I was able to discover the north of the island in excellent conditions. I recommend because the visit is very well organized. THANKS

Many impressions. We should have stayed longer at the market. The botanical garden was slightly disappointing. All in all, a nice trip. Can be further recommended.

The visit to the tea factory is of no interest. In addition, teas are extremely expensive.

I have to say the guide Raj was very friendly and helpful.
