Full description
Discover the sights and tastes of Port Louis through a guided street food tour. Let your guide lead you through the bustling streets to some of the authentic food stops of the capital.  Starting at the Caudan Waterfront, head into the heart of the city by foot to explore its hidden corners and local food stops. From Indo-Mauritian "faratas" (fried dough bread) served with Creole "rougaille" (a rich tomato-based dish), to Sino-Mauritian "boulettes" (dumplings) and Franco-Mauritian pastries, discover the Mauritian cultures by tasting their local delicacies. 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.

A very interesting visit with Rudy who was able to overcome with great kindness the error of the reservation system (we had booked for a visit in French, but summoned with an English-speaking group). Rudy knows how to share with us the history of his city and his island ️ The foods tasted are hearty!

What an awesome little tour! Our guide was very informative, not only about the food but also the history of Port Louis. We ate a variety of local snacks/dishes and I went out of my way to find some of the same dishes (asking by name) in the area I was staying in. Mauritian food is truly diverse, just the way I like it! Definitely recommend this tour!

Small group walking tour through Port Louis city area with a very polite and knowledgeable guide. Regular stops with interesting detail about buildings, history, background etc. It is a must do if you have a keen interest in local culture and history with the added bonus of sampling food prepared whilst you are there.
