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.

Very original and interesting excursion! We really enjoyed the visit to Bois Chéri with the tea tasting and the splendid setting. The visit to Saint Aubin is also very interesting and we could have spent more time there. Thanks to our guide Sailen who patiently accompanied us all day and told us a lot about the island! We highly recommend this tour.

We had a really nice day. Our driver Ali was always very friendly and gave us a lot of useful information about Mauritius. We can absolutely recommend. The tea plantation, the rum factory and the colonial houses were worth a trip. Lunch in one of the colonial houses was really, really good.
