Our driver/guide Ibriham arrive at the port in good time. He was not only a safe driver but also very knowledgeable and patient.
He showed us everything we wanted to see and answered all our questions.
We had a fantastic day thanks to him!

I took the tour of the southwest of the island with Sailen, a prudent driver and a trained and passionate guide.
He was kind and punctual in explaining all the highlights to me and thanks to him the tour was very interesting.
I thought the tour would last longer, not just 4 hours, since I paid 100€: we didn't visit the boat factory and Black River Gorges so it seemed expensive for what it offered.

Good overall experience of local maurian Street food. Always good to walk and experience local vibe. Would have liked a written summary of different dishes so one can remember the names tastes and history.

This was an excellent tour! Ibrahim gave us a full history of Mauritius, explaining the multi-cultural population of the island, stopping regularly to show us things of interest that I doubt any other guide would. We stopped for lunch for some delicious Mauritius food before continuing the tour. Ibrahim is a mine of information and facts that made this experience a real highlight of our visit.

The food tour was very informative and started with a tour of a museum to explain why there are so many food influences in Mauritius. Christopher is really friendly, chatty and knowledgeable and we enjoyed spending time with him. The food was plentiful and varied, from savoury to sweet, snacks, drinks and main courses. The tour visited China town, the Muslim quarter, the traditional food market and the central business district. And Christopher took account of the fact that I prefer less spicy food than my husband so our food was spiced differently. The advice not to have breakfast beforehand is good advice as I was full before we even got to the mains. And everything was delicious. I am taking the receipe for a soup back home as it would be lovely for a UK winter! We chose this tour over one from a large company as the group was a maximum of 6 people - it was just us and Christopher and I wouid definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a fun way of learning about the history and food of Mauritius.

An excellent experience! Christopher was a wonderful tour guide, and we learnt so much about Mauritian cuisine and culture during this 3 hour tour. It was wonderful that it was a private tour, so my mom and I could do it at our own pace. Lots of walking and lots of food! Definitely arrive hungry.

Sailen picked us up at our ship and took us to see all the highlights south of Port Louis. He gave an excellent narrative along the way and answered our myriad questions. Every site was well worth seeing and Sailen knew the perfect spots to take the best pictures. He even took us to pick some wild fruit growing along the side of the road. They were called Chinese guava. They were tart but tasty and contain a lot of vitamin C. It was a great six hour trip and ended with a drop off back at our ship. Highly recommend!

My husband and I booked an airport pickup transfer with Destination Soleil in March 2023.

Carine, whom I was corresponding with, was very easy to communicate with and always responded quickly to my emails. Our flight being delayed by one day, but the driver was well-informed of the delay and waited for us at the airport as agreed.

I would like to extend special thanks to Sam - our driver for his exceptional customer service and professionalism. He was very friendly and was telling us interesting facts about Mauritius along our entire journey. The fist things we learnt about the county were from him.

Thank you for the amazing service that you offer - for a tourist who visits for the fist time, to feel safe and welcomed means a lot!
