One of the best travel experiences I ever had was when I visited Mauritius. While most people, whether they have been there or not, agree that it is an ideal holiday destination, I had to find out for myself. I was completely blown away by how much more spectacular it is in real life than in pictures. After some exploration of the island I realized that Mauritius has a lot to offer, and is far more than just a beautiful island with beaches.
Whilst on holiday in Mauritius, I also realized that there is more to the island than just the well-advertised resorts. People who stay at one resort will not get a full Mauritius experience, and will miss out on the unique aspects that make the island so special. I found many smaller, but absolutely super guesthouses in the most stunning locations that offer a more accurate experience of the island’s unique culture than the bigger resorts.
The adverts you see are correct – Mauritius is a paradise that is not duplicated anywhere else in the world. However, if you would like to try all the attractions you fancy, travel the remote and more popular parts of the island and see the nearby, smaller and intriguing island of Rodrigues as well, take a look at our unique itineraries. They have been personally tested and therefore work especially well. The fact that we visit all the places we recommend to clients is the reason why the holidays we arrange run so smoothly. We are also closely connected to many of the guesthouse operators, and are therefore able to arrange the best deals and activities with ease. We strive to understand the needs of our clients so that we include their interests and ensure their entire experience is nothing short of spectacular.
