Know Before You Book

  • Each day tour lasts up to eight hours, and you will be able to choose how long you spend at each attraction. Depending on your group’s speed you may not have time to see all the listed attractions.

  • You will be able to stop for lunch each day but the price of the lunch is not included.

  • We do not collect the payment fees for the attractions, so that gives you the possibility to skip the ones that don’t interest you and spend more time at the ones that do.

  • Some attractions may be closed on certain public holidays. Pamplemousses Garden is closed on Sundays. Grand Bassin may not be accessible during the Mahashivaratree festival, which takes place over a few days each year in February or March.
