Amazing service. 10/10 would recommend and would definitely use again when in Mauritius. The WhatsApp booking is very fast and easy and responsive, they are very fast to reply and they organize the pickup in a very quick manner. The cars are decent, and the drivers are very professional, friendly and attentive and always on time. Stellar service. The only issue, and this is just being picky, is that their working hours end at 7pm so make sure you book your transfer before that time. It would be great if they had a later closing time as it would help organizing things if you’re a late planner like me. Other than that, the service, price and overall experience is great.

We booked a Catamaran cruise through this company from the Blue Bay area to Ile Aux Cerfs. They handled the collection and drop off with all the timings for us which was super helpful, especially as the transfer was around an hour each way.The staff helping with bookings were really helpful, responsive and friendly.The taxi driver was very friendly and courteous, the car was immaculate and comfortable.The boat trip on the Island Hopper boat was amazing, one of our favourite boat trips.The boat was modern and very clean, even the toilets, and we're sure they cleaned it whilst we were on the island.The staff were fantastic, the 3 guys were very friendly but not overbearing. They were super attentive, we did not have to ask for anything.The food was simple but very tasty and no one went hungry. The selection of drink was decent and everyone was well catered for. The trip was very chilled, people enjoying a drink but no one was lairy.I would definitely recommend this company for taxis and booking trips as we had an amazing day!

Wir hatten einen tollen Tag auf einem gepflegten Katamaran.Die Crew war sehr zuvorkommend und hat uns mit gekühlten Getränken die ganze Fahrt über versorgt.Nach dem Schorchelstop gab es lecker Lunch mit gegrillten Chicken, Würstl und Fisch. Salat und Baguettes.Ile aux Cerfs an sich war nicht so spannend. Viele Schnellboote und sehr touristisch....Entspannte Musik die ganze Fahrt über machten den Tagesausflug zu einem besonderen Erlebnis.Klare Empfehlung für island Hopper..Dankeschön.

Wir haben uns für die Port Louis Tour entschieden und waren von dem Paket begeistert. Die Abholung kann flexibel und nach eigenen Wünschen gewählt werden. Unser Fahrer war sehr hilfsbereit, hat uns durch die Stadt geführt und alles nötige erzählt. Die Fahrt war sehr angenehm und sicher. Im Hotel hätten wir für diese Tour über 100€ pro Person bezahlen müssen. Dafür sind die 80€ für 4 Personen wirklich fair. Eintritte sind selbstverständlich nicht mit dabei. Tolles Unternehmen, dass ich gerne weiterempfehle!

We had 2 trips with Taxi Service Mauritius. The first their planned Southern Mauritius excursion, the second to places chosen by us. Everything was first class, from the online booking, communication via WhatsApp, and the trips themselves. The driver was excellent, we learnt so much about Mauritius from him on the journey. Would definitely book again if ever we return.
