This is a Private Tour, only for you to go in a private vehicle (including pick up and drop off from anywhere in Mauritius)!
After you are picked up from your accommodation, you will head to Trou Aux Cerfs Volcanic crater in Curepipe, Mauritius famous crater. From Floreal heading to Curepipe, you will stop on the way to visit the Trou aux Cerfs. This huge natural volcanic crater, 85m deep and 200m wide, was formed millions of years ago. Here you will have a beautiful panoramic view of the crater and the town of Curepipe, and when the sky is clear it is possible to see all the way to Reunion Island.
We will then take you to Grand Bassin where you will also get to see the statue of Lord Shiva. The statue is of 108 feet (33 meters) and is the highest known statue in Mauritius (and one of the 50 highest statues in the world). The sight of the Mangal Mahadev statue is quite impressive as it is a beautiful crafted very big statue.
Your next stop will be at Bois Cheri Tea Factory: awaken your five senses as you discover the making of teas, rum, vanilla, essential oils – and as you stroll down the exotic gardens of the Bois Cheri tea plantation. A guide will walk you around during your visit and will guide you on the history, stories and tales of all the sites.

The fascinating attractions of the Nature Park, spreads over some 450 acres of land and revolves around the indigenous fauna and flora that abound in the park.
We will then head to Gris-Gris, found at the Southern tip of Mauritius. The appeal of Gris Gris lies in it scenery, the high cliffs here drop abruptly to the sea and the bracing winds of the Indian Ocean blow all year round. Gris-Gris is well known for its sea cliff and this is definitely a sight worth seeing. This part of the island is not surrounded by coral reefs and this is why thick waves crash directly on the cliffs. At the southern end of Gris-Gris you will have a great viewpoint on the cliffs and will see the squashing of waves against the flanks of the cliffs.
Finally, we will visit the La Vanille Crocodile Park. The park is home to various species of animals, reptiles and plants.

We made the round trip transfer as well as the south and north excursions of the island. We had a great time with our driver Seeva who knows the island and all these anecdotes. Always on time and very courteous, I recommend him without hesitation.
Very responsive WhatsApp service.
We made the south tour with volcano crater, grand basin, seven colored earth and viewpoints. Our driver was very nice and helpful.
Great trip which we can recommend.
We did the tour of the South of Mauritius with Mikael. He took us to a model ship building factory, the volcanic crater, the Ganga Talao sacred lake, Black river gorges national park and Chamarel Seven Coloured Earth. Along the way he pointed out mountain features and stopped whenever there was a particularly beautiful view so that we could take it in and also take photos. Everywhere we went, he ensured that he took us to the entry point and even ensured that we knew where to walk. I am glad that I didn't hire a car and try to drive myself as the roads we took were very twisty and narrow. Mikael was an accomplished driver which took all the stress out of the day for us and we could just enjoy the scenic beauty around us.
Really easy to book a taxi. We used whatsapp to book airport transfers. They were on time with smile, polite drivers. Did the south west and north tours, both excellent, comfortable cars and reasonable price. Would definitely recommend. Both of the trips were great Picked us up at early hours of the morning when required and by sharing their local knowledge and recommendations for each area we went to. Very friendly and reliable company.
A few hours after my request for a customised tour we got our confirmation.
Our driver Bobby arrived on time and after checking the route we started in an interesting day. As planned, we are visited Vanilla Park, le Morne, Seven Coloured Earth, Chamarell Waterfall and the temple Ganga Talao. Additionally, He showed as several other interesting spots on our way, like the wild beach Gris Gris, the Slave Route Monument in Le Morne, ... He was a great guide, who told us a lot about the nature and culture of Mauritius.
We had a great day an can fully recommend these guys offering great and interesting tours to a reasonable price.
