DESCRIPTION:

Discover the Mauritian craft and artisanal industries with our 8-hour Mauritius Craft Tour. The driver will pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the various sights and attractions below. You will get to explore at your own pace while the driver waits for you.

Bois Cheri Tea Factory
You will have the opportunity to discover the tea plantation of Bois Cheri. It’s no doubt the most popular tea in Mauritius; just the smell of the wonderful vanilla-infused black tea brings back fond memories for all Mauritians. You will have the opportunity to choose whether you would like a guided visit of the factory and tea plantation, a visit of the tea production museum, a tea tasting, or all three (which is our recommendation!).
Note: Entrance fees are not included in the price, allowing you the flexibility to choose exactly what you would like to do on the day of your excursion.

St. Aubin Rhumerie and Vanilla Plantation
St. Aubin Rhumerie uses both the artisanal and traditional distillery techniques to make its award-winning rum. You will have the opportunity to visit the factory and learn about the rum-making process, and sampling the delicious varieties of rum that they offer. You can also visit the beautiful historical colonial house and the vanilla and anthurium flower plantations.
Note: Entrance fees are not included in the price, allowing you the flexibility to choose exactly what you would like to do on the day of your excursion. The Artisanal Distillery is closed on Saturdays afternoons, Sundays and Public Holidays.

Artisanal Ship Model Workshop
Mauritius is well known for its artisanal ships that are expertly hand-crafted by talented artisans. People fly to Mauritius from all over the world to admire and purchase these unique and beautiful works of art. You will have the opportunity to visit a traditional workshop and learn about the art of model ship-building. If you would like to purchase one as a souvenir of your trip, you will be able to choose from the many unique models on display.
Note: Entrance is free.

Diamond Museum
Discover how diamonds are expertly cut by local artisans and learn about the process of manufacturing diamonds from beginning to end. You will be able to see the experts at work and view their creations on display at the museum.
Note: Entrance is free.

Gris Gris and La Roche qui Pleure
While most of Mauritius is surrounded by coral reefs, giving us the calm lagoon the island is famous for, the southern part of the island is where there is a break in the reef. At Gris Gris, you will be able to admire the rugged scenery of big, powerful waves crashing on the stunning cliffs. A few metres away, you will see La Roche qui Pleure, a natural rock formation that resembles a person crying when the waves hit it.
