Admire Mauritius' gorgeous countryside after exploring the island's capital, Port Louis

Your local guide will transport you from your island hotel and transport you in an air-conditioned coach to the capital city of Port Louis, where your Mauritius countryside day trip with Creole lunch in a local home kicks off. You’ll learn about the island’s history and the famous flightless dodo as you stare out over picturesque landscapes.

Enjoy a guided walking tour of the city where you’ll take in the panoramic views of Fort Adelaide, as well as tour St Louis Cathedral and Place d’Armes.
