Gabriel - Private Guide in Curepipe
Hello everyone. My name is Gabriel and I am Mauritian. I am 33 years old and I have been working as a guide for almost 8 years. In fact I started as a history teacher and a linguist and in parallel was working as a freelance tourist guide. Then 4 years ago I started to work as a full time tourist guide and I can speak fluently english, french, russian, hindi and, not forgetting of course, my native language which is creole. For the past few months, I have been studying german, spanish and italian. During my time as a part time tourist guide, I have worked with numerous tourist agencies and I have conducted excursions in english, french and russian.
Now I have started to create and organise my own excursions. This has been due to the fact that the more that I have studied Mauritius, the more I have become to love it as a rich entity of history, culture, customs and art. The inspiration has come mostly from its history as even though it is a small island, Mauritius has been able to shape the history of many decades and even centuries. The description of it being the star and key of the Indian Ocean has been derived from its rich ancestry.
My work, as a tourist guide, consists in helping you in each possible way from looking for an accommodation, transfer from and to the airport, organising your excursions, organising weddings and doing remarkable photo sessions.
My wish is to make you feel at ease and comfortable during all your stay in Mauritius such that your holidays will be held in your most loving and tender memories.
