          Turtle experience and tour.
          First of all, credit to my driver, Luv. He was extremely helpful, informative and flexible. I didn’t feel rushed and he was on-hand when needed. I started with a trip to the red church, which is a great photo opportunity. A brief stop at Baby Baie beach for a wander along the sand, before heading off to meet the boat for the turtle encounter. Swimming with the turtle is an experience I won’t forget. I got really close to it, respecting the wildlife guidelines explained to us by the captain. From the ocean to the Botanical gardens next. I could quite easily have spent more time in this stunning place. I made the mistake of not hiring a guide, which were very well priced at Rs75. My highlight was seeing the giant tortoises. A stop for lunch at an amazing seafood restaurant was followed by a trip to the citadel/fort of Port Louis. To be honest, the fort could have been better presented. It is an amazing structure, but the lack of information boards or guides left me a little disappointed. As I’m very interested in history and having more info to hand would have made the visit a lot more worthwhile. Then on to Port Louis centre to visit the aquarium and a bit of a mooch around the shops. The aquarium is well worth a visit, albeit a little on the pricey side at Rs1200. Some amazing phot ops here though. The nearby shopping centre was very pretty and certainly worth a window shop. There is a mixture of high-end retailers, food & drink outlets and gift shops. All of which are very expensive. My driver Luv was waiting immediately outside when I had finished my strole around and he took me back to the hotel. By this point I must admit, I was pretty worn out and there may have been a nap involved on the journey back 😂 Total excursion time was around 8 hours. All in all, excellent value for money and I made sure to tip my driver for his efforts.

          Nice experience to see the turtle
          To see the turtle swim was very great but there are too many people at the same time. The beaches were beautiful to watch but not good for snorkeling. At the beaches were to many tourists for me. The driver was nice.

          Our taxi driver was on time and lovely, he offered to take us for food after, which was unexpectedly nice. The boat guys drove us north to find the whales and it was a success. We got some amazing videos and pictures. They followed the whales keeping a safe distance while we sat and watched them. Such an amazing trip.

          Snorkelling with turtles, but no turtles
          Very disappointing tour. No turtles due to speed boats nearby. I was expecting a quiet excluded area to interact with numerous turtles whilst snorkelling. Also, no guided tour of historical sites in Port Louis area. Tour took just 4 hours which was much shorter than advertised.

          A great day out
          Beautiful places to visit. Enough time at each location . Trip only spoilt slightly by being the only 2 English speaking on board and we're with a VERY roudy crowd, who even brought their own portable speaker with them. Having said that they were lovely people, just a bit ott for us and not understanding them was awkward at times. Enjoyed the trip though

          Very enjoyable trip, we particularly liked Pamplemousses but snorkeling with turtles was not great. The snorkeling equipment provided was not fit for purpose and the boat had seen better days. Unfortunately I did not get to see any turtles which can't be helped but they did offer for us to come back the next day free of charge. Our driver San was brilliant he really gave an insight into what life is like on the island and was super friendly and chatty.

          Mauritius experience
          Was a great day. Was lucky to see turtles. Driver Manoj was excellent and very knowledgeable. We didn't do aquarium, our choice, but were shown other places of interest. Got an overall experience of Mauritius.

          Not so nice experience
          The trip was a bust . No turtles. We were not very satisfied. The driver was friendly and very knowledgeable and helpful, but we should have done something differently

          Great day out
          Brilliant day out with lots of activities at the valley and different places to eat, staff were very friendly. We particularly enjoyed the animal park and feeding the giant Tortoises! Our driver Fricash was very friendly with lots of knowledge of Mauritius. He even took a detour to show us the giant hindu statues at the grande bassin! Thank you 😊

          Dolphins portion was brilliant but the rest was disapointing
          The tour was odd. I was picked up by a taxi on the morning of the tour which took me around to various locations. Other than the swimming with wild dolphins portion which was the first activity of the day the rest of the tour consisted of just myself and the taxi driver. None of the other passengers on the boat were on the same 'tour' as I was. I made the best of it but the expectation of a guided tour with planned hikes etc which I had in my mind was not the reality on the day. For much of the day I was wondering what exactly was going on.

          A really great day out!
          We were picked up early in the morning and driven straight to the dolphin’s experience, the time out on the boat was great, and we did see a couple of dolphins, but there were so many boats and people doing the same thing, following the dolphins that it was hard to get a clear view and we didn’t want to jump in with them as we felt it was unfair on the dolphins, it was great so observe them from afar though. The rest of the day was great, we visited so many different things, the chamarel 7 colours was beautiful as were the giant tortoises. Our driver was really helpful and he took us to a Mauritian restaurant as we had some time for lunch and we wanted something authentic. It didn’t disappoint. I recommend this trip, as it was a good experience and day out.

          A really great day out!
          A truly memorable experience! The dolphin swim was a real experience although it is quite intense jumping in and out of the water. The snorkelling that followed at the coral reef was stunning and much more relaxing. You are literally surrounded by hundreds of beautiful fish. Then the visiting the sites was good as well. Dave our driver was brilliant we visited 23 colour earth which was incredible with waterfalls, beautiful sites and the amazing volcanic earth, a volcano, a Hindu temple, a model shipbuilders and then a couple of shops that do rum and tea tasting. The shops that do the tasting and the shipbuilders are a bit of a tourist trap trying to sell you various touristy items but other than that it was a really magical day.

          San the king is the best!
          San was fantastic. We had a great time with him. On time every time and was very knowledgable about Mauritius. We also got to know a lot about each other through the time we spent with him. He was very thoughtful when we were travelling with him by helping show us the way to the different viewpoints. San even took his to a local restaurant which had the best seafood. I will definitely want San to be our driver again for future trips. Thanks again San, Matt and Alex.

          Poor turtles!
          Do not snorkle with sea turtles! It is forbidden! A poor turtle gets fed so that around 20 tourists can roam around with arms and legs all over. The information about how to snorkle and behave is non-existing. They didn't even bring snorkle equipment for people, even if the description said so. Would never have done it if I knew it was like this! Otherwise we had a lovely day with a very good guide (Manoj). Can recommend him, but not the snorkeling.

        It was such a smooth experience with Bonjour Mauritius! We arrived at Blue Bay and the boat was already waiting for us. The water at Blue Bay was really out of this world beautiful. Our toddler had a blast counting all kinds of fish she spotted thru the glass bottom panels! 10/10 :D
