Trip to MauritiusWe travelled to Mauritius as 5 days trip for our Honeymoon. Aditya Grand Vacation was the travel agent who taken care and organized the whole trip. Tanvi- POC for our trip- who was totally reachable and helpful for our queries about quotation, stay, flights etc., We wanted to customize our package before 1 week of our travel (Wanted to visit Casela park instead of North tour). Though we had glitches in discussion initially, they arranged the trip without charging extra (Choosing private cab made this not much complicated). We never faced a single issue in the whole trip and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and felt like home and very safe. From flights, hotel (Azur Paradise), food in hotel (i'll give 6/5 star), Private Cab, Sight seeing everything was hassle free. Initially i thought, the hotel has a private beach but it is not. Slightly disappointed (it was my mistake for not ensuring it), but still i could reach the nearest beach by walk in 3 min at max. The driver was arranged for our whole sightseeing-Jeff, was a very nice and polite person (Former Kick Boxer) . We totally admire his way of approach. We felt very safe while travelling with him. Leena- the poc in Mauritius was much reachable and assisted us even for a small query during our stay. Deepanshu- TT coordinator: helped us on invoice related queries. In Mauritius: Food: If your package is Half Board, your breakfast and dinner includes in your package (most of the time, it is delicious). When you are putside, try local food. Don't look for Indian restaurant, atleast get clarity about the meal on what they are serving exactly. It costed us 1200 Mauritius rupee for two meals which is very average, probably costs 200 rupees at the maximum in india. If you are a non vegetarian, you can try different variety of sea food (alas!! we are vegetarian). On the other hand, we tried roti in local road side shop is totally mouth watering costed just 10 Mauritius rupee for a single roti. So please be cautious on how much you are paying for what you are eating. Shopping: Always look for local duty free shops, which are reasonable in price. Beware of local market/bazaar shop where they charge 250% for TOURTISTS. We purchased a tshirt for 300 Mauritius rupee with the help of Jeff which was sold for 650. Activities: You have plenty of adventure and water activities wherever you go. Plan your time and enjoy accordingly. Locations: Simply Heaven. Beaches, landscapes, people, even roads- Mauritius will never fail to amuse and excite you!! Verdict: The trip was quiet pleasant and memorable. We regret for choosing the trip only for 5 days. It was bit tight for us. Mauritius is heaven. You will feel like a home. People are polite. Landscape is something phenomenal. Perfect destination to spend your relax time. Have your memorable time!!!
Trip to MauritiusMauritius Trip arranged by Ai Rn Wing S– Great service provider with excellent pre-sales engagement. Post sales engagement could be better. The onsite travel coordinator at Mauritius (Nalini) was excellent. Excellent ocean view from the hotel(Anelia Resort) . Tours could have planned slightly better and guiding and coordination could improve. The travel insurance provided to us was not relevant for Mauritius (it was for Asia), I arranged my own insurance. Overall we had a great time courtesy onsite travel coordinator (Ms Nalini).
Trip to MauritiusTrip was good. Well arranged. However there were some activities that were included in the resort (Tarisa Resort) for no extra cost, like snorkelling, kayak, pedal boat which the resort did not allow us to do. They gave reasons like the sea is too voilent, too much wind, you have to be a good swimmer. As per my research and knowledge knowing swimming is not a requirement for snorkelling. However we approached them four times in a span of two days and they were totally not interested. They also mentioned that if you wish to do snorkelling, you have to do it on your own responsibility. There will be no one to assist or guide you ! This was the most disheartening experience in my entire trip. Rest most of the itenary was well planned and well executed.
