Although Reunion Island is the ideal destination for adventurous travellers to explore by themselves, having a tour guide to introduce you to the insider secrets to the island is recommended for those who desire a deeper level of understanding of the island. Whether you're interested in a multi-day hike, an exploration of the Piton de la Fournaise, or a eating your way around the island, a local guide can show you the secrets that make Reunion Island such a unique destination.
Personalised tours can be arranged with your guide, who can also assist with driving if you'd prefer not to drive around the island yourself. Having a guide is also helpful if you struggle with French and would like someone to take over communications for you while on the island. Booking your guide in advance is essential, and it means that they can help you plan your trip and offer expert advice and tips for your visit. Each guide listed below specialises in tailor-made trips and experiences and would be happy to create a bespoke itinerary for your visit, based on your interests.
