Mauritius tours

Beyond Mauritius’s pristine coves and blue lagoons, you’ll find traditional Creole villages, French-colonial villas, spice-laden markets and great swathes of virgin rainforest. Aiming to take you closer to Mauritian culture, each of our itinerary ideas for this Indian Ocean island has been designed by one of our specialists from their first-hand experiences of visiting.

Many of our tour suggestions combine two of Mauritius’s landscapes, pairing the highlands with the beach. We want to make sure you can experience the biodiversity of the island, as well as a touch of its more luxurious side, depending on where your interests lie.
