Full description
Spend the first part of the day exploring the capital city of Mauritius, Port Louis. Climb up to Fort Adelaide, known as 'The Citadel', a 19th-century military fortress which features a walled courtyard and panoramic city views. Then head into the central market, the Grand Port Louise Bazaar & China Town for a stroll around. Marvel at the impressive array of clothing, local vegetables, and exotic spices. Continue your shopping excursion at the splendid Caudan Waterfront. In the afternoon, pay a visit to the beautiful gardens at the Grapefruit Botanical Paradise. Then continue along the northwest coast via the Tamil Temple, Choisy Beach, and Grand Baie. Make a stop at Cap Malheureux, a village located in the Rivière du Rempart District to see The Palatial Red Church, a Roman Catholic Church famous for its vivid red roof against the bright turquoise sea and azure sky. Opt to pop into L'Aventure Du Sucre or the Sugar Factory Museum, where you can discover the history of sugar production in Mauritius and taste local products. Or perhaps make a stop at the majestic Chateau de Labourdonnais, one of the most beautiful colonial houses of the island inspired by Italian neo-classical architecture. Lunch fees are not included in the tour, however, your driver will provide you with a variety of restaurant suggestions according to your tastes. Feel free to request a stopover at any other restaurant of your choice at any point during the day.

We had the most amazing trip with our guide Raj! He didn‘t let any stone unturned and we were able to make many core memories. Everything worked perfectly well (he arrived on time, brought us to the nicest spots & we could eat a wonderful meal for lunch) and Raj is a wonderful, kind person! Everytime again!:)

Ich hatte auf Mauritius mehrere Touren über Get your Guide gebucht. Auch bei diesem Ausflug hatte ich die private Tour gewählt und mein Fahrer Paw, mit dem ich bereits die Südwest Tour gemacht habe, kam dann auch zu diesem Ausflug. Er hat mich gut über den quirligen Markt in Port Louis geführt. Mich locale Getränke probieren lassen und ist immer, individuell auf meine Wünsche eingegangen. Der botanische Garten war auch sehr schön. Den werde ich mir noch einmal zu einer anderen Jahreszeit anschauen, weil in Februar weniger bunte Blumen zu sehen sind, aufgrund der hohen Temperaturen. Es war nicht die Blütezeit, aber es gab trotzdem viel zu sehen.

Nous avons passé une excellente journée! intéressante, fidèle à la description, nous nous avons pu visiter, prendre des photos sans stress et dans la bonne humeur grâce à notre chauffeur Nitesh qui s'est montré ponctuel, avenant, patient et avec une conduite prudente. Merci infiniment à lui.
