      Don’t miss this experience!!!
      Bryn gave us an amazing experience. His detailed knowledge of biodiversity, local history, cloud formation, plate tectonics, coral reefs, conservation etc made the time together fascinating. The mountain is not extremely high but the upper parts were challenging for us (aged 58 & 67) Bryn prepared us well and went at a slow and steady pace, building up our confidence. I explained at the outset I was scared of heights and could get vertigo. On one steeper section the vertigo kicked in and I started hyperventilating. Bryn patently calmed me down and with his encouragement and praise I managed to reach the summit. The sense of accomplishment was huge. All the way up and at the summit Bryn took the most amazing photos of us, plus a video. Our friends who have seen the photos can’t believe the stunning scenery. I am eternally grateful to Bryn for making me confront my phobia and giving me and my husband this unforgettable experience. Now the problem is which of those amazing photos should we enlarge for our wall.

      Just amazing. Please go!
      Bryn is simply amazing. As soon as we arrived, his energy and high spirits lifted us and got us excited for the hike/climb ahead, despite it being very early in the morning. My wife and I went with our two kids ages 8 and 10. I was prepared to stop the hike at any point if I felt it was dangerous for them, but Bryn was a true professional in how we approached this climb, and in his management of our group. He instilled confidence, and excitement, and went above and beyond. He’s an expert climber and also works as mountain rescue, so we knew we were in good hands. He cares deeply about what he does and the experience he provides. As we were hiking up and down, he stopped passersby on several occasions when he spotted risks that could affect them and others. People can and do get seriously injured on Le Morne, so we were glad we went with a true expert. He also made such an effort to take great pictures throughout our hike, and thanks to him, we have some of the best family pictures ever which will be remembered forever. Thank you Bryn, you are amazing and you’re much appreciated.

      Hiking to Le Morne Cross
      Professionally organized, small groups, carried out in a friendly and competent manner from a experienced and motivated guide, extremely informative and entertaining It was the UNESCO-Tour to Le Morne Cross, starting 5:30h in the morning. It's necessary in because of the coming temperatures at the day and the lot of illegal guided touristgroups. We have been the first on top. Great view all time, sunrise while hiking. The guide takes photos all time you get after the trip - great memory and included. The tour only takes place in good weather conditions and you pay after - Very serious !! Don't hike on any of the many illegal tours just to save a few MUR. Invest in safety, adventure and nature conservation - the company is part of the wildlife foundation.

      Le morne Brabant hike
      Explorers Mauritius and Bryn were excellent. Very well organised before the hike, adjusting for the unpredictable weather conditions. During the hike Bryn was extremely thorough and clear with all safety instructions as well as being fun and an excellent all round guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our hike and would highly recommend Explorers Mauritius.

      Thank you for an amazing experience! Bryn guided us safely through these beautiful mountains, telling us about Mauritius history and culture with such a passion 🌞 made all the landscape even more meaningful. I've learned so much this morning! About the island, the apple trees with no apples, about climbing, bit of everything really. He also took amazing panoramic pictures for us. What an energetic, passionate, caring human being this guide is! Can't recommend Explorers Mauritius enough!

      What an awesome trip!
      The hike and views from Le Morne were amazing, so much more that I had expected. Best trip I did whilst on Mauritius! Our guide Bryn was outstanding, really knowledgeable and made sure we knew how to remain safe throughout. The hike itself was brilliant, we left early to avoid the worst of the heat and im glad we did. There were a couple of trickier sections but Bryn did a great job making sure we knew how to navigate these without any problems. Overall a great trip and I couldn't recommend enough!

      Amazing Hike with an amazing guide
      Walked the Le Morne Brabant on the 10th October, We booked via our TUI Rep at the hotel. Well when we got picked up in the morning (5.45am) with the guide we were very excited to walk the mountain. On getting to the mountain Bryn (best guide ever) asked us all to sign mountain insurance as if you didn't know your insurance does not cover you. Then he explained the hike to us and how it will work. Bryn was a well of knowledge and he knows his stuff about hiking and the island itself. Me and my partner learnt so much about the island and animals and everything with Bryn. You start by walking though the wooded areas then you do have to scrabble up the rock face near the top, I myself are the worst with heights and I did end up having a few panic attacks but if it was not for having Bryn there I would never have got up to the submit of the mountain and would 100% not got back down. On the hike Bryn takes loads of photos and you get them emailed to you at the end. Which is an added extra and the photos we got were amazing. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Bryn and for helping me to do an amazing experience. 100% book with Bryn and this wonderful company.

      Le Morne: what an experience
      We did not expect Le Morne to be quite a difficult climb but Bryn was absolutely fantastic. So patient with us (especially me as I was very scared of heights)! He has so much knowledge and passion about Le Morne and Mauritius. Would love to do another adventure with Bryn one day! Thanks for everything Bryn!

    WOW. What an incredible experience and with a superb guide. Bryn is simply the greatest; taking pictures and videos, assisting us and making us feel at ease the entire time as well as sharing his vast knowledge of the island with us. It was perfect from start to finish. I would highly recommend climbing Le Morne and I would DEFINITELY recommend that you do it with these guys. Thankyou for making our time in Mauritius even more memorable and special.

    Bryn was exemplary as to how a hiking guide should be; Professionally communicative, highly knowledgeable, safety conscious, and fun! I did the Le Morne hike, and I couldn’t think of anyone better suited to being a guide for this climb.

    There is a passion for what is being said and done, and any questions anybody had were thoughtfully answered with great detail. Bryn took excellent photos/video to capture the experience for everybody. I also felt safe doing this climb with Bryn, as he knows Le Morne very well. The whole service that Bryn provided was faultless.

    Thank you for a great time!

    Our first time in Mauritius and once we saw Le Morne we knew we had to climb it. We consider ourselves to be VERY lucky that our hotel organised the hike with Bryn at Explorers Mauritius. Bryn is amazing. Safety is his no.1, 2 and 3 concern, so you feel like you're in very safe hands. He also creates a magic experience with his conversation, sharing of local knowledge and experiences and his masterful camera work. We've been to over 40 countries and experienced countless tours/guides, and can honestly say that Bryn is top 3, if not the best that we've ever experienced. Such a great walk, really recommend that anyone does it (you don't have to be super fit), and does it with Bryn!

    This is up there in being one of my favourite experiences of all time. Bryn was cracking on comms from the moment I contacted him, right up until 4.30am on the day when I reached out to find out if the hike was still happening - it was pouring with rain! Bryn is an absolute master of his trade, assuring, encouraging and welcoming. I am scared of heights but wanted to challenge myself, and he was there every step of the way to ensure the group reached the summit safely. The icing on the cake is the effort he goes to in ensuring your journey is captured with both photos and video footage. I couldn’t recommend this hike enough, an absolute must for a visit to Mauritius!

    What an amazing experience! We booked this trip after reading Trip Advisor reviews and it totally exceeded our expectations. Bryn, our guide, was so knowledgeable about the area and was passionate about conservation and keeping Mauritius a centre of Eco excellence. The area around Le Morne Brabant has been owned by his wife’s family for generations and they are keeping it as a natural habitat for deer, monkeys, mongoose, birds, butterflies, etc. The last section of the ascent involved climbing up rocks and I was a rather nervous 67 year young hiker but Bryn guided us carefully and was always concerned about health and safety. The views from the top were stunning. Bryn took superb photos and video footage which he sent to us later in the day. The whole event from pre-booking, to detailed information and safety advice, weather conditions, communications, right the way through to receiving the photos was totally efficient, prompt and professional. It was well worth the early 05.30am start with Bryn as our guide to access the summit. We would not have considered doing the ascent by ourselves and wondered at some of the ill prepared hikers attempting to go up with the rapidly rising temperature as we were descending. A memorable experience and a trip we will never forget. Thank you, Bryn.

    Fantastic morning climbing Le Morne with Bryn.

    It was an early start (3.30am) from the North East of the island to meet for the 5am start, but well worth it to beat the heat. Bryn was a brilliant guide who is very knowledgable of the mountain and Island.

    The panoramic views from the summit are incredible and Bryn captures the best images and video footage to share with the group afterwards.

    Highly recommended trip for when you are on the island 👍🏽

    If you are unsure about booking this tour, then be hereby convinced that it is 150% worth it. Thanks to Bryn, who is not only an excellent guide and has a great knowledge of the island himself, but is also an outstanding person to get to know. After le mourne we booked directly the chamarel waterfalls with him. He is most concerned about safety, so he kept us in the loop while awaiting the exact weather forecast. Luckily we were able to go as it was one of the greatest things I have ever done. As we were back up and already in the taxi, my boyfriend realized that he forgot his cell phone at the waterfall. So as we had no other chance, we tried to reach Bryn again and he came back and climbed down to the waterfall and up again within 40 minutes and brought the cellphone back to us (we had 3h for the whole thing).

    Dear Simone and Bardi! Thank you so very much for your amazing review and very kind words my friends! It was an absolute pleasure! I’m so glad that I managed to recover your mobile, before the rains (and it would have honestly taken me much less than 30 mins if there hadn’t been a slow car on the road, ha,ha,ha!). Wishing you both all of the very best and I certainly look forward to “crossing paths” again in the future! My kindest regards as always! Bryn

    Couldn’t recommend this experience more, the early morning means you escape the heat and the crowds of people climbing (it’s quite steep in places) and you see the colours of the ocean change as you climb. Bryn is an inspirational man to spend time with, excellent at explaining the history, culture and environment around him. He is completely safe and reassured me often as a slightly nervous climber. The photos and videos we received were so beautiful. It felt like an amazing achievement to be at the top and the views were so beautiful it didn’t seem real. Thank you Bryn!!

    what an epic morning of hiking with Bryn. From the initial booking to the day of the activity communication was amazing even postponing to another day to make sure we had a safe and great experience. The 5am start may be off putting might seem mad but meeting the hoards of people on the way up in the heat as we were on the way down and had the mountain at top to ourselves made for an epic experience. Bryn has brilliant knowledge of the area and is a mountain rescue member first aid trained so you are in safest of hands. finally his video and photo package of the day (without any charge) is amazing the quality is so good. highly highly recommend!
