What people are saying about Savanne District

Our guide, Sameer, picked us up at our hotel on time - as agreed. He took us to all the highlights mentioned and gave us information about the respective places during the trip and also on site and also answered all our other questions about Mauritius and life on the island - always very friendly. With the highlights themselves, we always had the opportunity to explore them independently and at our own pace. Meanwhile, Sameer (politely reserved) has been waiting for us. We had a nice, relaxed and private day in the south of Mauritius with Sameer. This tour is definitely something for explorers who don't like mass tourism (buses).

magnificent day, full of discoveries accompanied by our Sailen guide always available and smiling who knew how to share with us all his knowledge on his island, his customs. punctuality and caution on the road seduced us. Sailen gave us the private guided tour of the three estates, using her historical knowledge for the Aubineaux estate, then the tea factory (from picking to packaging) then accompaniment to the Saint Aubin estate with a traditional succulent meal Mauritian. sailen guided us in the discovery of spices, vanilla and the production of rum. real visit, we strongly recommend.
