Mauritius is the place where Destination Expert Ariane Hervé-Guéret has settled with her family having visited a long list of countries since she was 12. What places are left that she’d like to see?
“Living in Mauritius is different to living in France, where I grew up, and Montreal where I went to live with my husband after studying, and started my family. When we all moved here for my husband’s job it took us a while to get used to the different lifestyle and pace. But we’ve come to love living in this beautiful country and when we go away now we’re really happy to come back to our “adoptive” island.
I was 12 when I went abroad for my first trip. And I’ve never stopped. We’ve just come back from La Réunion island and plan to visit South Africa and Madagascar in future trips. I dream of seeing the contrast of modernism and tradition of Japan one day. And I’m curious to see Louisiana too.
But now it’s been great exploring and getting to know Mauritius, and visiting the lovely Rodrigues island nearby. The thing I love most about the island is that it isn’t just what you think it is! Yes, there are plenty of gorgeous beaches and luscious green landscapes, but it has so much more. You can indulge in water sports or diving in the stunning crystal clear or turquoise waters. The cuisine has very diverse influences. There are great spots for watching the sunrise, or set, and the waterfalls are stunning. And how could you resist swimming with dolphins?
I always love discovering new things, so I expect a lot from new countries. I like to see how people live. When friends and family visit I help them choose what will create the best memories for them and the feeling they’ve had the best vacation ever!
If you’re like me, you’re not the kind of person who will stay in one place when you’ve been traveling for hours to get to a remote country, you want to get out and discover all there is to see and do! And having to choose because you do not have enough time to see everything is very frustrating!
But that’s where I come in. Do get in touch and I’ll tell you about the hidden parts of Mauritius and activities you can do when you visit!
Ariane speaks French and English.

“We flew like birds in Madrid with the teleferico across the casa del campo, gliding just above the houses and trees. Wonderful day!”

“My husband and I spent a week in Cape Town last march. Amber was my contact at Cmycities and I must say she was great helping us make our stay the most enjoyable possible! Amber is easy to get in touch with and is extremely reactive. She gave us tailor-made advices, as I had been in Cape Town only once, years ago (loved Green Market Square and the Truth Coffee).
I particularly appreciated her good tips (we were looking for running spots and found great ones at the Sea Point Waterfront) and addresses that no guide tour would have given me (girl-to-girl best spots like shopping in the Watershed) but also lots of groovy attractions for the two of us. “

“I had a wonderful last minute week-end in London two months ago… Cmycities London helped me find a hotel, select a musical and recommended the Saatchi Gallery, which was really for me an amazing experience. I can only recommend Marie-Pascale, for the personal touch I am always looking for when I travel… and I can’t wait to travel again with Cmycities! “

“We had the most incredible experience in Paris a few weeks ago! The trip was a surprise long weekend for our 5 year-old daughter birthday and it was just perfect! Her eyes are still sparkling, maybe from seeing the Eiffel Tower?! We managed to keep a day out at Disneyland as a surprise. It’s a family trip we’ll never forget! “

“I only had a short stay in Sao Paulo but I was lucky to have Andre to show me around and point me in the right direction. He knows all the good spots and fun areas, and you can definitely tell how much he loves his city! I can’t wait to go back and explore more of this incredible city!
I highly recommend getting in touch with him before your stay!
Thanks again Andre :)”
