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.
THE BEST TAXI COMPANY IN MAURITIUS SINCE 1977
Established since 1977 in Quatre-Bornes, Taxi Service Mauritius, is the first local taxi-hailing company in Mauritius dispatching vehicles to pick-up guests around the island on a 24/7 basis. We’ve also learned to excel in providing a friendly service to tourists visiting the island. Our online platform is dedicated to visitors coming from over the world & provide them with a reliable transport solution that is both easy to pre-book & pay. We’ve succeeded in building a very positive 5-Star reputation in 2020 on our TripAdvisor & Trustpilot profiles thanks to our fantastic, friendly & dedicated staff. Unlike the competition, we believe that each & every transfer needs planning & briefing. Based on your special requests, we know who we have to send to you & we won’t just send a driver who was just roaming around your pick-up location. At Taxi Service Mauritius, trips are planned in advance to ensure a high level of service & the driver details are sent to customers at least a day before the transfer. That is also why we also urge customers to book at least a day in advance. To cut short, we are the ones that offer great service at a reasonable price in Mauritius (usually 30-50% cheaper than the individual taxis).
