We had an amazing trip to the South despite the rain . Ridwaan our guide was so informative about the history of the island and pointing out places in route . We had a brilliant time at Les Valley des Couluers and spent more time there than planned but it was worth it . I had some questions before the trip anout bookings and he was able to provide support and advice promptly . Despite the rain Ridwaan deviated the route to try and see if we could take advantage of views at one of the viewing points but sadly there was too much mist . The transport was so clean and tidy and he had umbrellas for us all to walk to a viewing area . Would definitely recommend this trip and guide whilst on Mauritius. Thank you Alison
