    Gaurav's 7 days trip to Mauritius

    We paid extra for a sea view room and we're assured of it. But when we reach the resort we get a concept saying.. sea view and sea front are different and ur travel agent opted for sea view. This is just manipulation of words and the room did not comply with the expected (shown while booking) The island walk team members were polite and took good care.

    Amit's 7 days trip to Mauritius

    Solana beach was my resort which is exceptionally awesome, highly recommended. But if I talk about our travel guide, was very rigid. false promises were made to me like change in itinerary which I wanted since the day I booked my package and my travel guide would keep on saying that it will be done once I reach the resort and ultimately it was not done. Similarly on the final day, I had to check out at 11am (which I know is the standard check out time) and my pick up for flight was at 5.15pm so I and my wife had to roam around just to kill time, but during booking I was told by the travel guide that he will talk to resort partner that if there will be vacancy then they will allow us to stay in room , as the room which we left was vacant till evening and no other guest came in that room. So summing up, nice experience with resort and the place Mauritius but not happy with the travel guide of Travel triangle as well as of Infune

    This was our 2nd tour with Travel traingle. Except hotel everything was really good. Hotel receptionist on the day of our arrival was not at all cooperative, rude and arrogant. Even she was discussing our issue with another travellers in local language. This was really disappointing. Except this our tour was good. But as it happned on our very 1st day of tour, it was very disappointing and made us furious to think how it will proceeds further. We went with our family and everyone enjoy the tour. South tour was really exciting for us.

It was better place than any 5 star in 4 star cetegory. Food and service are best I have received from any hotel. Trip to Aux island and catamaran cruise was best in Mauritius tour. Highly recommended to all couples

    The entire tour of the La Vanille Crocodile Park and nature reserve takes nearly 1-2 hours.

    The answer differs from one season to another. In the summers, it is fixed at 5 pm while in the winters it is 4:30 pm. This is kept while keeping the weather and the light hours in view.

    There is a number of exciting and fun things that can be visited inside the park. Make sure not to miss the reserve, the aquarium, the Insectarium, the tortoise compound, the turtle nursery, the fossil museum and last but not the least the interactive farm.
