Mauritius may be small, but she has so much to offer. This tour packs in the Pamplemousse Botanical Garden, St François d'Assise Church, the citadel, a panoramic tour of Port Louis and free time to shop at the Caudan Waterfront.
The morning begins rolling through the island's green interior to admire St François d'Assise Church, dating from the French colonial period in the mid-18th century. Then cross the street to Pamplemousse Garden, the oldest botanical gardens in the Southern Hemisphere. Here, you can observe more than 500 rare plant species sprouting among the shady palm avenues and lily ponds.
Next, it's on to one of the island's best panoramic viewpoints at 'La Citadelle'. Here, your guide will point out the Champs de Mars racecourse and Port Louis skyline before heading into town to see its top sights, including the Cathedral, Supreme Court and Government House. There's a pit stop in Chinatown before hitting the old craft bazaar or the modern boutiques down by Caudan Waterfront.
