    A great hike, very physical (not to be underestimated, steep slope, path among rocks and roots, on often slippery areas). Fabrice, our guide, was fantastic: considerate, encouraging, helping, always positive .. With someone else, I would have given up .. Thanks to him, I was able to finish and appreciate these fantastic wild landscapes, which cannot be left behind. easily approached ... I recommend and encourage him to continue as well. A big thank you to you Fabrice

    Our guide was William. We were picked up on time and your tour was super awesome. Everything was well organized and William got us through dangerous places. Felt well supported and learned a lot about the history of Mauritius. Overall, the tour was very adventurous and the waterfalls were beautiful. Simply worth seeing.

    Our guide was very friendly, but after about half an hour it started to rain monsoons and didn't stop for the rest of the hike for the next two and a half hours. Everyone was wet to the skin. We have therefore spared the last waterfall. All in all, it was a real experience with the rain, of course, but you have to climb a bit on wet ground. Even without rain, I would consider this a more demanding hike - which is basically a lot of fun.
