      I have a few suggestions to make, which will help Indian tourists visiting Mauritius: 1. Mauritius is a very expensive place and shopping can be avoided. Hardly anyting worth buying. 2. All tourists to be told to stock themselves with water bottles right on the first day itself while leaving from airport for their respective hotels. Enroute buy 1.5 ltr bottles from road side stores. The price in hotel for 1 ltr bottle is Indian 180 Rs and outside for 1.5 ltr is around 46 INR. 3. Hotels do have Gourmet restaurants for dinner - included in the package. However the catch lies that the tourists on package do not get time to book these, since booking is done between 1400 H to 1600 H, when the tourists are out. Hence Travel Agency has to sort it out with the hotel that on arrival the tourists be shown the Gourmet Restaurants menu, and let them select their preferences on arrival itself. Alternatively, Hotel should permit logging on preferences daily at the Reception when the tourists leave for their daily tour. Booking to be made for the next day. Gourmet food is much better than the normal buffet. 4. Mr. Ravi is an excellent organiser, but he is hard pressed. He does not have time to give to inidividual needs, though he always puts in more than 100%. There can be glitches. Hence, all details to be intimated by the Indian Counterparts well before the tour about what all to be seen - rates, contact numbers. We were cheated for the island tour by local operator. We stood our ground and insisted on refund. 5. Visit to the fort is a real waste of time and money. Nothing to see. It is better to utilise this for the tour of shopping centre. 6. The air tickets to be sent individual pdf for each sector. There can be disasterous issues. In our case, one part of return journey was on a different page, which some how never got printed. Resultantly, we could have missed our flight. Hence, send individual pdf. for example Marutius to Dubai. Dubai to Mumbai. And NOT ONE FILE, in our case a part of the tickets got lost in the print out. 7. Visitors to be briefed that there there is only one check in of baggage for the total journey. Otherwise, it is touch and go. Mauritius to Dubai and Dubai to Mumbai, there is only 1 hr gap. Passangers got to go throught immigration check and if the luggage has to be collected and re-booked, every chance of flight getting missed. BOUNDEN DUTY OF INDIAN TRAVEL AGENT TO BRIEF THE VISITORS IN ADVANCE. 8. Hotel has excellent facilities which are part of package like snorkelling, which we could not use. Hence, tour programme to be so organised that the hotel facilities are utilised free of cost on the first day - rather than we spend for snorkelling at other sites. 9. Indian visitors to be informed to carry additional tea bags, creamers and sugar sachets - if found of drinking more than 2 cups of tea. Hotel does not provide extra tea bags free.

      Stay in Maldives was great. But we didn't get birthday celebration benefit or evening transfer to water Villa which was mentioned in itinerary. We had a lot of tension around visa processing as the concerned team within travel Triangle didn't have much clue finally we had to directly contact the 3rd party udan to get our visa done and we got our passports just 1 day before our journey start . Onward flights were good as it allowed 30kg per person. And we carried around that much luggage , but return flights booked allowed only15kg per person and this was not informed prior which made us to leave some of our valuable items there. This caused great inconvenience. We are not happy with overall service as this was meant to be a leisure trip but we had to go through many tensions during our visa processing and in airport due to luggage limitation. stay in paradise resort
