Jay is a fantastic guide and gave us the authentic, natural Mauritian experience that is not possible to get from a hotel excursion. His knowledge of the forest is impressive, as are his wife's cooking skills which we enjoyed during a delicious lunch by one of the 7 cascades. This is an absolute must for anyone visiting Mauritius.

An UNMISSABLE activity in Mauritius' interior. There is more to this island than beautiful beaches! A 4 hr scenic trip down the gorge, stopping at 4 waterfalls, swimming, fish pedicure and picnic lunch. We stayed in the NW corner of the island, so it was a 1hr taxi ride to where the guide (Jay) picks you up, at Henrietta bus... More

We read about this hike and Jay the guide from Trip Advisor. We contacted Jay before arriving in Mauritius and again once we had arrived. My husband and I were joined by 2 French lasses. I was extremely nervous once we started the hike as although I was wearing hiking shoes I found it very steep and challenging. Jay was... More

The waterfall is really breathtaking. The coloured sands although quite a unique experience just didn't really do it for me. If you haven't been there before it's worth a visit

We were there for a business lunch. The view was breathtaking and the food out of this world, They also offer suites you can hire for the night. Trekking lovers would really love it there. They also have quadbikes.

An awesome hike through the jungle with Jay. We say several falls and trekked throughout the canopy to see an amazing and unspoiled view of the area. Jay did a great job explaining and helping us along. This is a good length hike with some strong up and downward treks. Wear suitable gear!

We went for 11 days to Mauritius and explored the island with our three teenagers. I read that the visit to the seven cascades must be something marvelous. Although I do not like hiking a lot I asked Jay, the best guide as I read if he is available. He was very helpful and we arranged the trip together. When... More

Les 7 cascade or 7 colour earth is very interesting place to visit, having a big waterfall. Its is wonderful when sun is bright. 2 giant tortoise is also having fun at that place.

During our stay second half of November 2014 we booked a half day with Jay for hiking at the 7 Cascades. At the meeting point Jay didn't show up but he sent his colleague Prakash. Prakash guided us through the 4 highest waterfalls which was a spectacular experience even for 2 Norwegians who are spoiled with great waterfalls. What positively... More
