Your day of sightseeing in Southwest Mauritius begins with pickup at you lodging. Board a comfortable tour vehicle with your guide and tour group, then set off for your first stop, Floreal. Visit some handcraft workshops, a great place to pick up souvenirs from your trip and see what types of crafts and handmade goods are made on the island. 

Continue to Trou aux Cerf, a massive volcanic crater that measures 656 feet (200m) across and 279 feet (85m) deep. From the edge of the crater, you can see panoramic views of Mare aux Vacoas, Rose Hill and Cureipipe. 

Visit Grand Bassin, home to a Hindu Temple and a surrounding sacred lake. This temple is the destination of the Maha Shivaretr, a yearly pilgrimage. Depart for Black River Gorges Natural Park, where you'll visit the Alexandra Fall and get views over the southern portion of the island. From Glack River Gorges Waterfall, snap photos of views over western Mauritius.

Stop for a rum tasting at the Rhumerie de Chamarel, a distillery that makes Mauritius' native rum, then continue to the nearby Chamarel Waterfall and the 7 Colored Earth, one of the islands most famous sights. 

Finish your tour with drop-off back at your hotel.

Saw a lot, however didn't feel rushed

Got picked up on time by a nice gentleman in a clean car. A long drive through the countryside to our first destination. There were quite a few stops planned for the day. We took in all the sights of South West mauritius. Never felt rushed and Included a tasty lunch in a roadside cafe. Our guide was the perfect host.

We had a brilliant guide, comfy car, amazing places to see and experience but lunch was disappointing and the speed at which it was served and judging by other customers eating there and their reactions we weren’t the only ones disappointed. If we can change the lunch spot we would definitely recommend this tour.

Can't say enough about this tour. Guide turned up 10mins early in nice air conditioned car. Spent 7hours together on a very fun and detailed excursion. The driver/guide (apologies as we forgot his name) was fun and also very informative. My wife and I had an amazing time. Would do again in a heartbeat.

Highlights of Southern Mauritius.

Content of tour was excellent and we saw amazing scenery, learnt about Rum distilling, came across a Hindu temple and annual festival (which was unexpected) but delightful. Roads were very narrow and we had to push it to get back to the ship on time, but an overall great experience with a great guide.

We were two persons plus our driver-guide. He was polite and well informed about the places we visited and about Mauritius in general. The car was spacious, new and well air-conditioned, not too cool. The program was very well thought out. It contained natural wonders and man-made curiosities. All in all, the tour was splendid!

We went on the south west tour and it was very informative and our guide was very knowledgeable and was open for us to ask questions. Some of the views we saw were amazing and got to see some of the hard to get to on our own. Only thing we felt was not needed was our first stop to basically a jewellery shop and a place there model boasts are made, felt like we were only taken there to buy stuff. Outside of that it is a well worthy trip

Our driver spoke very fast and was only interested in what he had to say and didn’t engage with us at all. In fact when he dropped us off at a sight he said a brief outline of the place and told us he’d meet us back here in 20 mins then walked off looking at FB on his phone.

An excellent way to start our Mauritius visits. The driver who doubled up as our guide was very professional and well informed on a multitude of subjects that we discussed through our day long trip. Very knowledgeable and polite.
