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

We had the best time. Our guide was lovely, made us feel safe, took lots of photo for us, had a good hiking pace. Couldn’t have asked for a better guide. Thank you Mathieu! There were only two of us on the hike and we went for the 1pm slot. Weather was good but very slippy and muddy in places. Don’t take white trainers like we did! Stayed at the LUX Belle Mare hotel which was 90 minutes away, taxi was 4000 return, our taxi driver waited for us so we made sure to give a tip. Would thoroughly recommend this trip.

It was simply breathtaking! We saw, experienced and felt so much in 3 hours, it was definitely worth it! The guide was really great, he told us a lot and took photos/helped us on difficult hiking trails. You rarely experience something like that, we would do it again anytime.

Fabrice was an awesome Guide, super caring, told us a lot of special facts about the waterfalls and the nature and made this trip an amazing experience! Highly recommend it.

Excellent guide and YANATURE MEETS all our expectations : safety . Amazing sceneries . I highly recommend them
