The tour was amazing. Especially the Tour Guide Jeremie very was very professional and positiv. He made always stops when needed and took care of the group. Even though we had a lady in our group with Vertigo, Jeremie supported her all the time and managed to bring her to the top safely. I recommend this tour to everybody, it is a must do in Mauritius.

The hiking trip was a great experience. We had read a lot before about how difficult or even dangerous it could be for unexperienced hikers. So we decided to book a guided tour and that was the right decision. Yan did a fantastic job. With his advices we managed to climb Le Morne Brabant without any conflicts. Of course, a few passages were really challenging but we did not feel uncomfortable in any situation. Thanks for that Yan! We can really recommend the guided tour! It is worth it! And for all that are unsure: Do not overestimate yourself, book a guided tour =)

This hike was good for all levels. The section to get up to the summit may be a bit challenging for beginners. But if you're an experienced hiker, this hike will be just fine for you! Our guide (Fabrice) was excellent--very knowledgeable about the hike, mountain, and surroundings. Also, he was very personable and engaging. He made everyone feel included and supported.
