About
This is a private full day tour in the South East region of Mauritius themed around scenic and historical views combined with the wild untouched side of the island. Following a pickup from your accommodation, drive along the tea route to make a first stop at Bois Cheri tea factory for a guided tour to learn more about tea production. Enjoy a complimentary tea tasting session at the tea estate’s uphill restaurant that overlooks a natural lake. Next, head to La Vanille Nature Reserve for a close encounter with giant tortoises and Nile crocodiles before making another stop at a former sugarcane plantation estate at Saint Aubin. A magnificent colonial house sits in that estate surrounded by a tropical garden and its adjacent rum distillery and farm. Sample local rums produced in the distillery and enjoy fruits from the farm. End the tour with a stop to Gris Gris coastline at the very south end of Mauritius to catch a great view of the Indian Ocean .

Totally unreliable,Terrible experience with Ocean African tours
Aug. 2019
We have traveled a lot all over the world and have never had such a bad experience with a tour operator. We only bother to write this review in order to warn people of this company.
First of all, they overcharge. Our mistake was that we wanted to prepare everything before our arrival to Mauritius and we chose Ocean African Tours because it seemed to us they had everything we needed. It turned out that hotels have much better deals than the one we arranged with Ocean African Tours. Mia, their driver picked us up at the airport and in the following days took us on two tours over the island. His knowledge of the history of the island and its sights is miserable. Obviously he made no effort to learn anything although he acts as a guide. The tours and the price were arranged through the owner of the company. However, Mia did not take us to all the places we wanted to visit, always with a different excuse. Although we originally wanted to go on several tours with them we chose not to, as after 2 tours we realized their service was not to our expectations. Two days before our departure we arranged with Mia to pick us up at 6 am on Saturday and take us to the airport. He did not show up. When we phoned the owner he told us he would be there soon, he was on the way but time passed and nobody came. So at the time we were supposed to be at the airport, we were still unfortunately, in front of our hotel in Mont Choisy, on the other end of the island. Both Mia and the owner live very close to our hotel but nobody came. After 45 minutes of waiting and several phone calls and promises from the owner we stopped some driver in front of our hotel, explained the situation and he phoned his friend, a taxi driver to take us to the airport. Thanks to this man we arrived to the airport and had to rush to the check in, ask the people to let us go first etc. All in all, we almost missed our flight. You can imagine how stressful it was, having in mind that we have to get to Paris and catch the connecting flight and be home so that we could start work on Monday morning. As a result our luggage was delayed by 5 days. Both the owner and Mia promised compensation for the inconvenience but paid us nothing up to date although we allowed them enough time. Totally unprofessional. Not to mention that we treated them well in all our communication. Mia was given a tip after the transfer from the airport to our hotel, and after each tour and we also invited him to have lunch with us on a tour on the day of my birthday.
We waited for almost two months to post this review as we were patient and hoped that Mia and the owner of Ocean African tour will sort this out. In contrast, they chose to ignore us.
We believe this review will be helpful for both tourists and Ocean African tours.

Dear guest , I appreciate you put the review , but I really don't like when you are lying about the Tour Operator . We give to you our best service and assistance in a new car and always doing thing to please you and enjoying your holiday . Only I apologize for what has happened the day you check out the hotel . As you know that the driver was bit late , but I do my best to send a taxi for you , let me remind you the driver is one our collaborator , and he confirm you pay the same rate and also you give Rs 100 . But Let me told you you claim me more the rate you pay , this is not good but as a guest we have done our best to settle this matter and you reach your destination . Your compenation can't be more that you requested and I assist personnaly for your luggage . So I again apologize for this unconvenience as it is the first time it happen .
