This included pick up at own location, ferries, entries to parks and museum, transportation in La Digue and Praslin, lunch and... More

upon visiting Seychelles, I contacted Mason's travel about a city tour and received no response. I then went on tripadvisor and ask if anyone knew of tour companies and I was referred to Masons again. I told them I was a little discouraged because I didn't get a response from the online application. The person then gave me the direct... More

We did the 2 island tour - Praslin and La Digue. La Digue is a very small island, which one can do on their own. The tour guides simply walked through the vanila plantation. pointing out the different places along the way which were clearly signposted. There was no added information, so we didn't see any added value. Some of... More

we decided with a group of 15 person to book a trip on the Catamaran "Catalina" and when we arrived at the Coral Strand they informed us that the Catamaran " Catalina" was broken and they were not taking any body on board. We were promised each of us a free welcoming drink but we never received it. Unfortunately the... More

Dear Guest, Our sincere apologies over this incident and we regret that you and your friends experienced such. Please allow me to clarify. Mason's Travel owns 3 catamarans named Indiana, Catalina and Anahita. Catalina is primarily based on Praslin, so it isn't the catamaran which you sighted, it would have been Anahita. This caters up to 100 pax and on... More

We have used Mason's Tours on both occasions we stayed on Mahe. The catamaran tour was beyond expectation. It included an experience in a glass bottom boat which allows one to see the coral reef and all the colorful fish that inhabit it. The catamaran stopped at a popular snorkeling spot and the staff made sure we were all safe... More

I spent 3 wonderful weeks in the Seychelles in October. As always, I went on my own to enjoy photography. Right off the bat, I knew that Mason's was a high level professional company. I arrived on a Sunday. Other companies were closed. But, Mason's was opened, and arranged a half day tour to Ile Cocos and Felicite( which was... More

This was a lovely trip, even with thunderstoms and tropial rain. The catamaran takes you out into the park, and then transfers you to a semi-submersible boat. Rita our guide was very knowledgeable about all the corals and fish we saw. We caught sight of a baby shark as well as many beautiful fish and coral varieities. Back on the... More
