It is difficult to convey in a few words what a great time we have had, every time we have gone out with Noorani and Satar. We had not read much about Mauritius before we first came away, but Noo asked us about our interests, and then proposed a customised day out, visiting places and people to suit us.

No other tour operator offers such a personalised service - think "Personal Shopper" for tour operators!

They struck the right note straight away by picking us up at the agreed time, and the driving on what can be windy roads was very comfortable. We have travelled the same roads with a mini bus driver, and were a bit car sick, but not with these guys! Comfy cool car, too!

We went on the Catermeran trip yesterday, with coastal sailing, snorkelling, beach swimming, seeing flying fish, Tropic birds with graceful long tails and curious cries, incredible sea turquoise and blue colours, splendid phosphorescent blue corals, and Angelfish the size of dinner plates, also my favourite, the Picasso Triggerfish.
The barbecue dinner was delicious!

Satar even noticed that my neck was starting to burn in the sun, in the breeze, and told me so I avoided any inconvenience.

The prices are incredibly good value - everybody had a great time.

We recently honeymooned in a hotel in Belle Mare, Mauritius and had 50km/h wind for most of our time there, which made lying on the beach unpleasant. We found Belle Mare Tours from the website as we wanted to hire a scooter to explore the island and do some shopping. Not only were their rates of hire for the scooter better than anyone else in the area, the scooter was in top notch condition as were the helmets. We hired the scooter for two days and there was no pressure from Noorani, the co-owner of the business, to return it as they would come and pick it up the following morning.

After being so impressed with the helpfulness and friendliness of Noorani, we wanted to use them to do a great tour they offered on their website. Unfortunately, the sea was too rough to do the tour because of the wind so we asked if we could go to Blue Bay instead by taxi and do some snorkeling instead. Noorani was again only too happy to help and organised a taxi to take us at a great rate and then snorkeling from a glass bottom boat (which we had all to ourselves) also at a great rate. When we arrived in Blue Bay, the taxi driver escorted us to the desk to pay for the glass bottom boat and snorkeling and then all the way onto the pier and introduced us to the boatman who would be taking us, who was also friendly and very helpful. The equipment was in excellent condition and we even managed to see a turtle swim right under our boat thanks to the skill of our boatman. The taxi driver waited for us and drove us all the way back to our hotel.

It was a fabulous experience using Belle Mare Tours and working with Noorani. They are so helpful and friendly and have great rates. I would highly recommend them to anyone staying anywhere in Mauritius as they service the whole island.

I emailed Noorani from our hotel and he came the next day, picked us up and took us to his office so we could see the tours. From the first Noorani was friendly, helpful and accommodating and never pushy. He gave us advice and information to ensure we got the most from our holiday.
We had a great Island tour with him, and although the only English on the boat this was never a problem as both Noorani and his partner spoke good English and included us at all times. He took us to the local market, arranged a taxi tour for us to Port Louis and hired a car for us for the day. When we had to cancel a tour at short notice as I was unwell, there was not a problem at all. Nothing was too much trouble.
I thoroughly recommend using his services rather than the more expensive holiday company or hotel arranged tours.

Before our trip to Mauritius we had looked at the website of Belle Mare Tours. When we arrived we telephoned them and Noorani came to our hotel and took us back to his office to show us the trips that were available, He was so helpful and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. The trips we went on were all great value for money and we were extremely well looked after. He also sorted out a hire car for us. Thank you Noorani Thank you. Belle Mare Tours.

I was in Mauritius first time. So they help to choose the best routes to see all interest places in Mauritius, we saw the places, which are not included in our excursions. We have 3 excursions, and one driver Cadio. He showd us a lot of interesting places and speak many interesting things. It was the most interesting and cognitive trip. And if we return I think we choose this service again.
