Our honeymoon tour of Mauritius was filled with so many water-based activities and sightseeing. All of them made us feel enthusiastic and urge to do more. It was less crowded when we visited except some pubs and casinos opened till late night. Drinks and food were available in plenty everywhere, basically sea food items. We stayed in a perfectly decorated room and of course the candle light dinner at the resort was fantastic.

Mind blowing Mauritius honeymoon package has stolen our hearts. I and my wife went to visit Mauritius in December 2016. It was a fine weather there. Our itinerary included speed boat rides, jet-skiing, catamaran rides, submarine rides, under sea walk and banana boat rides. The beaches looked amazing with less number of people. It was a slow and steady tour with a lot of good places to see.

It was a very beautifully organized trip of us to Mauritius and we have selected one of the best Mauritius honeymoon packages with the help of Thrillophilia. Seven day trip made us enjoy the island completely. The tour included cultural and heritage sightseeing tour and also we went to climb the Black River Gorges followed by a visit to Chamarel as well as some of the nearby attractions. The lovely natives preserve the villages so beautifully. Quad Biking and trekking were the most interesting activities we have done and there was a candle light dinner at the resort we stayed on the previous day of our departure. It was so romantic and the candles were spreading a magical aroma. The trip gave us so many wonderful moments to be cherished.
Amazing place with sea all around and happy faces everywhere. Top-notched service from the local operator and yummy food at the sea-side restaurants. It was a great trip for me and my wife.

Nice package with 6 days’ proper planning and experienced driver and guide. Inclusions in the package were really good and the places we visited were truly amazing. I liked Chamarel and the seven colours of soil mixed at one point. Wonderful days for me and my wife. The roads were crowded and there were many shopping options in Mauritius. It is a happy and beautiful place for vacation.

We had so much fun when we went on this trip. A Very nice arrangement was done, good food, good staff, and great service. We did quite a lot of activities during this trip. There are a lot of spots which we visited like Belle Mare, Floreal and Chamarel waterfalls. The seven colored earth was the best. Our guide provided a lot of information and also told us about the other places we will visit. Thanks, Thrillophilia, you did some good work.

Went to Mauritius with my husband to celebrate our 10th marriage anniversary. We went for scuba diving, snorkeling, Jet Ski and banana boat ride. When we went for snorkeling, it started raining so we missed few sites. Our drive to Curepipewas really awesome, we visited the Black River, Grand Bassin and Chamarel waterfalls. But the best part came when we went for a speedboat ride at Ile AUXCERF which is a small islet. The scenic views were really amazing with the clear waters. Another best part for us was when we went out for a sunset dinner at Flic en Flac. It was one of the most memorable evenings for both of us, they have very well decorated the boat for us. Loved the whole trip.

We went on this Mauritius trip last summer on July 18th, 2016 through Thrillophilia. Arrangements were done very well. The package was also very decent with everything included as they have mentioned. There are quite a lot of places with beaches and water activities. We did some water activities like underwater sea walk, scuba diving, and snorkeling. My wife did some shopping at the duty-free shops in Floreal. Our afternoon drive to nature park of Black River & Plaine Champagne was another best part of the trip. We saw the usual seven coloured earth when we visited the Chamarel, never saw anything so beautiful and unique before. We also explored the oldest horse-racing club, Champ de Mars another beauty here. Food and accommodation during the trip were really great. Thanks to the team for making our honeymoon a memorable one.
