My husband and I just did the one day tour to Praslin and La Digue. We opted for a tour through Mason's because it seemed like a good deal for the money, and it was well worth it! About $475USD for both of us included bus transport to the ferry, cat coco tickets, tour of both islands (coconut plantation tour... More

My husband and I just got back from Seychelles 2 days ago, we got married there and turned to Mason's Travel for the organizing of the entire thing! It was an amazing experience and definitely the most memorable moment for us! I'd like to thank everyone involved so very much and especially Jeanette Violette who's been in touch with us... More

Masons travel provided our transfers and excursions, behaving as our local representatives in resort. They were always on time, friendly and welcoming, the drivers were chatty and happy to talk about the local area. The reps in the hotels knew lots about their areas, offering the perfect advice for what we wanted to do, including in one case directing us... More

We've had 3 tours from Mason's Travel: the Praslin-La Digue tour, the Mahe Island tour and the St. Anne marine park and we've enjoyed immensely each one of them. Very well organised transport, great guides and overall wonderful memories. The trips we're explained in advance by our representative (big thanks to Hubert), but just enough to leave room for surprises... More

....to Oliver, the representative of Mason's Travel Mahe, and our tour guide Thomas! We just arrived back in Switzerland and would like to thank Oliver and Thomas very, very much: Oliver, with whom we booked two day trips, was very helpful - also out of his duties - with some problems occurred with our flight to Mahe. Our flight back... More

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
