Local knowledge
What an amazing trip! Well worth the money. Me and my Partner had a fantastic time getting so see lots of the island and hidden spots. Our Guide was terrific and friendly, sharing lots of local knowledge as we went around the south of the island, we were both sad the day had to come to an end!

We were warmly welcomed from our hotel reception by our driver and guide for the day Hans, he then told us the itenery for the day and any questions at any time he would answer. We had loads Hans was very informative explaining the traditions, heritage and religious understanding of the Island to us. We visited first the Grand Bassin and statues of Shiva, with a full description of the various gods we were seeing. We then went on to Rochester falls which were a beautiful cascade from the lava, also along our journey we visited an extinct volcano crater, now a lake of unknown depth, Gris Gris beach, Le Mounde beach, we had a truly traditional lunch, Hamil to start with boiled noodles, mash and chicken to follow, we also tried a sponge desert soaked in syrup, and then a vegetarian wrap with curry paste, baked beans and leaves, yes we ate a lot😁 we then went on to the ebony forest and a safari which included a guide along the canopy raised walkway explaining about the forest project, then onto the seven coloured earth, which was beautiful and amazing at the same time, we finished our sightseeing with Alexandra falls and the spectacular view of the gorge, then the drive home. In total it was an amazing day and we cannot thank Hans enough for his insight, friendliness and attempts at feeding us up. Thank you and we highly recommend this tour you learn so much, just ask.

Room for improvement
Nov 2019 • Couples
Good trip to see a lot of the south tourist spots in 1 day with the ebony forest being the highlight. However, trip did not live up to expectations. Guide was not very knowledgeable of the area, indeed had to use Google maps to find one spot, no water provided as promised, lunch was 2 course rather than 3 as advertised. However, guide was good as in respects he never made you feel you had to rush at any of the stops, even although the trip ended up being longer than advertised.

Did not know this was a private tour when I booked, but it was! Hans was lovely and changed the tour to suit us. Weather wasn't on our side but that's life, everything was beautiful! We did a huge loop on the island and we were treated to some local treats also. Recommend!++

Great scenery
Aug 2019 • Family
The trip was very interesting and my family and I learned a lot about the different parts of the South. Our guide, Ashutosh, was very accommodating, and friendly. He was patient with us when we wanted to stop at specific places to get photos taken, and always asked us if were comfortable or needed any help. The places we visited were amazing places to get photos taken, since the sceneries are amazing. For people that are interested in photography, this trip would be great for you.

Perfect day!
Aug 2019 • Couples
It was a great day! We visited many important and beautiful nature spots in the west and south of the island and it was magnificent. It was just the two of us and the guide, a nice young man called Hans Rughoonundhun that was very helpful while at the same time giving us our space. It was really great, thank you Hans!

Great tour of south
Aug 2019 • Family
Such a great day.. if you want to see the south of the island and fit it all into one day then this is perfect. Crammed so much in with extra stops along the way for more photo opportunities. Our knowledgeable guide gave us so must history and information along the way only stopping when we crashed out on the way back to our hotel, exhausted.Thank you soo much and for stopping off for a bag of local “treats” between POIs . Soo glad I found you on trip advisor was perfect!

Loved it!
This tour was amazing and we saw more than most tours offer. We could not have asked for a more friendly and helpful guide - Ashutosh. Ashutosh was very informative and steered us away from markets/shops which take advantage of tourists which we were extremely grateful for. The food was great and authentic. We would recommend this tour to everyone who visits Mauritius, we loved it so much that we also booked the North tour with Freshverde Holidays. Thank you so much for giving us an experience to remember!
