The climb itself was a little bit tricky, but in the end, it was all worth it. The view from the top was spectacular and absolutely breathtaking. And the tour guide, Bryn, was fantastic, too. He motivated all of us to the very end, cheered when we reached a peak, was happy when we pushed ourselves through situations we didn’t think we could overcome. He is passionate about his work and his life in Mauiritius. All in all, it doesn’t matter if you have fear of heights, you can do it! The view from the top will be a huge reward for you. Ps.: try to go in for it on a sunny day! When it rains, it can be very difficult, and it is not recommended at all.

Great experience! Professionally organized and Bryan took great care of all the participants, telling very interesting stories all the way to the top. He also took many amazing pictures of all of us from all sorts of angles :)) It was great we started super early so we avoided hiking in a heat (it gets up to 40 degrees up there pretty quickly). Would recommend to anyone!

Loved it! Superb crew, they make both both adults and babies feel very welcome. Tasty food and over all a great experience to enjoy beautiful Mauritius from a catamaran.

One of the best trips ever. Breathtaking view! Best tour guide ever! This trip is a must have, if you visit Mauritius! Thank you, Bryn!

Well organised professional staff. Good food, nice boat. Amazing trip.
