It was my first time to Mauritius and decided to book transfers with Taxi Mauritius (TravelHub)And it was the best decision to make. Had a clear communication from first enquiry with confirmations of payment. On arrival, we were met by our lovely driver Dave who was very accommodating and respectful and was patiently waiting for us in the exact spot as instructed.During our time in Mauritius we wanted to take a tour of the south of the island, so I emailed taxi Mauritius and received a response hours later and a confirmation. I would highly recommend the private tours.Our transfer back to the airport was on time and again a very comfortable vehicle for our group. Will be using this company again when I return to Mauritius.
