We rode with Vicky and we had a great day. We explored a lot of beautiful corners and got a great impression of the southwest side of the island. Of course, the main spots of typical tourist trips were covered, but VIcky also showed us some less touristy areas and even included our wishes (eg a visit to the rum distillery). After the main attractions we went to a small restaurant for lunch, which was really very good and authentic - we had 3 courses and we could choose between fish, chicken and vegetarian options. During the trips we had a really nice chat with Vicky and he told us a lot about the history and culture of Mauritius! We would book with Turquois by SamTours again at any time! Thank you for the day!

Robin was very good in showing us around the attractions of south west of Mauritius. The lunch was very tasty, but found the drinks not included in the package quite pricy, half pint of beer was 200MUR which works out just under £4… Robin was happy to answer all questions we had, but sometimes took a while to understand the question. If you speak French you may find it a bit easier to communicate. Souvenir shop that we stopped by was very well priced as we had a comparison to few other places, definitely worth doing your souvenir shop there! Car was clean and comfortable, felt though that having a minibus for a private tour for two was a bit of an overkill. Overall happy with the tour as good value for money considering we got picked up all the way from the north of the island.

An incredible and essential experience to prove that Mauritius is not just a beach. I am a young woman traveling alone and I was very lucky to meet Robin. As soon as he picked me up at the hotel, I realized that I was going to be lucky enough to share the day with him hand in hand. He explained a lot of details about the country, its customs, its culture and its way of life. He worried that I understood everything well and made me feel really comfortable. Also note that the food was amazing. A perfect example of how rich Mauritian cuisine is. A ten. Thanks again Robin!!!
