Description

Embark on a private day trip that unveils the rich tapestry of Mauritius' history and culture, starting with a pickup from your hotel. Your first destination is Port Louis, the bustling capital established in the 17th century as a strategic French outpost. Today, it serves as the island's commercial hub and main harbor. Stroll through the vibrant Central Market, where the island's diverse cultures blend through exotic aromas and colorful stalls. Visit the Caudan Waterfront, a charming area with historical buildings now hosting chic shops and eateries. Dive into the Far Eastern atmosphere of Chinatown and explore Fort Adelaide, a colonial fortress offering panoramic views of the city. The journey continues to the historic Pamplemousses, known for its spectacular botanical gardens, home to giant water lilies and rare tropical plants. Just a stone's throw away, delve into the history of Mauritius' sugar industry at L’Aventure du Sucre, a museum set in a former sugar factory. The tour's highlight is the visit to Château de Labourdonnais, a beautifully restored plantation house from 1774. Here, explore the lush gardens, taste the estate's own rum, and enjoy freshly made tropical sorbets and jams.
