The tour was an unforgettable experience, which we can only recommend to everyone. The hike was a big challenge but with Kevin's help and tips on climbing we pushed our limits and arrived safely at the top. The view is simply breathtakingly beautiful and rewards every effort. In addition, we learned a lot of interesting things about the flora and fauna and the history of Le Morne Brabant from Kevin. We were more than satisfied with the entire tour and can only recommend Kevin as a guide.

Fabrice was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable about the mountain and Mauritius. He helpfully pointed out the best places to enable a smooth climb and was very patient and encouraging on the hardest bits. This hike does involve rock climbing - the views are spectacular and definitely worth the effort!

Kevin was a great guide. He helped us with the ascent and descent, told exciting things about the history of Mauritius and incidentally took great photos. Due to the heat and the great rise of the sun, the tour is definitely recommended in the morning. Getting up early is worth it. Clear recommendation!

Awesome hike up Le Morne, breathtaking views and scenery. Fabrice was an excellent guide, full of knowledge, patience and fun. Highly recommended for people who love to hike and enjoy a challenge.

Very good hike, Kevin teaches us a lot about Mauritius and nature both in French and in English. Very good guide!
