What to expect

Some tours only give you a peek into a place through coach windows, but not this one. Delve deep into Mauritian culture with a visit to a Tamil temple and a taste of traditional chutneys before making tasty samosas with a local chef. With lunch included and free time for shopping in an authentic market too, this trip is true slice of island life.

The day kicks off with a visit to a Tamil temple – a hilltop sanctuary that boasts hundreds of colourful carvings of ancient deities and demons. You'll then drop in at the kitchen of a local cook to try an array of traditional chutneys and get hands on in helping to make some tasty samosas.

After lunch it's on to the city of Quatre Bornes. There's free time to explore, stop for a drink or rummage the market stalls for trinkets and treasures you're unlikely to find anywhere else.
