I had a great time on the day tour of La Digue and Praslin. Everything seemed to be in order and Mason's executed everything flawlessly. Not much waiting around, except for the ferry ride, which wasn't much of a wait. It did rain on us in La Digue for a couple of hours and was hindering my photography, but you... More

On the 17th of January we went on an excursion booked via Mason's, half a day snorkeling and half a day cycling on La Digue. Cycling was fine, not the newest bikes, but fine (really nice to do by the way). The snorkeling trip was executed by Lone Wolf Charters and done so really poorly. Main thing was that their... More

We took the day tour of Praslin and La Digue and were seriously underwhelmed. It may be impossible to offer a truly exceptional experience for mass consumption, but Masons failed to meet even the most modest standards while charging an exorbitant price (about a thousand dollars for a family of four). The guides were reasonably knowledgeable but were focused on... More

We took a day cruise out to the marine park around Moyenne Island on Mason's large cruising catamaran. Very well organised, nice lunch on board included in price, and friendly helpful staff. Semi-submerged glass bottom boat that meets you out near the islands was mediocre but that's par for the course with glass bottom boats - far better off snorkeling.... More

Myself with my family took this trip with Mason during our visit to mahe island, Seychelles. It was a beautiful experience. Very well organized trip. The staffs were very co-operative. Sub-merged glass boat experience was unique. Lunch was very good. Finally the island visit was very well planned. I strongly recommend taking this trip. It will be a life time... More

We are frequent travelers for leisure and would love to make the best out the time we have to spend in a particular country to explore it. Not every country can be explored by self. In Seychelles we were recommended Creole and Mason. Créole were least interested to entertain or request. Whereas we were pleased with Mason right from the... More

Walked off the street to find Mason's. not overly friendly office staff, but nice overall. Took their tour to St Anne Maine Island. The small boys wished to snorkel, So Frances was kind enough to take them out since we parents weren't too keen in getting in the sea. He did it with a big smile that was part of... More
