    Driver was informative and punctual. He answered any questions we had, showed us all the sites. We were given an infant car as well for our little one!

  • 04-Oct-2019

    There was no shopping in Port Louis. We just stay there for one hour at least, see the market on 15 min. The meat and chivkenmarket on 10 min. And go back to the car. I guess they park for free the first hour. Sugar museum not good (to boring ), botanical garden and Chateau Labourdenais was oke. Very expensive lunch in a restaurant how wasn't word the name "La poule D'Or", give the main back (so bad it was), had to pay the full price 😨.
    In a few words? This whole trip is too expensive gor what he is worth !!
