  • Interesting. Catered to my needs. Courteous driver and guide.

  • 1. The driver guide had no knowledge we had to tailgate other tours.
    2. He took us to a seafood shack after we told him we are vegetarians. We paid £10 for a cheese and onion sandwich.
    3. Paid for 8 hours driver wanted to drop us back in 4.
    Local agent compensated us £10worth (10%) not good enough!

  • We booked this sitting in our hotel having used the site once before for transfers in Europe. The tour was contracted out to a company called "connections". Our driver Zul was fantastic!! Very friendly and gave us lots of information about the island and attractions. A great way to see the island.

  • Lovely day, we had a really friendly driver who accommodated our wishes and fit as much as he could around our helicopter trip that we had booked on same day. He took us from balaclava down to the south for our tour fitting in the crater, and temple on the way down. And then he took us to 7 coloured earth, chamarel and the rum place on the way back. he stopped so we could take pictures of monkeys and to randomly pick us some fruit from a tree at the side of the road as we had not tried it before, he was very informative and made our day so special.

  • The itinerary was perfect. It was exactly as if I were driving the car and making decisions about where to go. It was my car and my driver and I was free to say when and where to stop for photos or other locales.

  • We used tour to view south of island. Friendly and Informative driver who made journey fun. Only downside still took us to 4 shops disguised as attractions even though we didnt request them.

  • Amazing day with a great driver so full of knowledge. Definatly the best choice of doing the rum tasting last...thoroughly fantastic day

  • Absolutely perfect! Shane, our Guide was wonderful. He took us to places not normally part of the tour per our interests. I highly recommend this tour and Shane.

  • This tour is a very compact tour of southern Mauritius, you get to see tea plantation, the volcanic crater,7 colored earth, the biggest sacred lake in Mauritius and the Hindu temple, Chamarel forest, waterfall and village. As we had time, we stopped at the Illusion Museum which was close to Chamarel and took great photos! This tour is private for you in a brand new, air-conditioned car. The guide is really nice and shapes the tour exactly to your likings and things that you want to see. We had lunch at a local village restaurant and everything we tasted was amazing. This tour is definitely recommended.
