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, ...
