Indulge in approximately eight sensational tastings.  Along the way, explore the real Port Louis: the old buildings and the stories they have to tell, the Company Gardens with their majestic hanging Banyan trees, the busy market full of colours, voices and flavours, and China Town and its will to preserve its culture. Join this three-hour walking food tour and satisfy your appetite for food, history and culture.

Great tour with very nice guides. Pickup worked perfectly. We really got a glimpse into the culinary world that you would never see. The history of the city and the different dishes were very interesting. We were also informed about all exotic fruits on the large market. We were able to try a lot and it all tasted very good. Can only recommend the tour.

luckily we had skipped breakfast, it was super tasty, across town, hearty, Asian-style, sweet (Arabic-style?), fruity (brilliant pineapple on a stick!), juice, everything included and more than enough ... since we were still there Had 2 days in the city, we remembered some spots and returned there every day .... unfortunately we couldn't find the great "pattisserie" anymore

Food-heaven on Mauritius

I really enjoyed this great foodie tour through Port Louis! We had everything Mauritian cuisine has to offer: wonderful Indian dholpuri, special Chinese dumplings and dessert, a trip through the Central Market to soak up the colours and a fantastic little bakery among other things. All was presented with enormous flair and passion. Our two guides were very knowledgeable about local history and the food and both extremely friendly. True professionals. The time passed very quickly. By the end I was quite full too, so I would recommend that people pace themselves with the eating.
