      Positives: The buggy is a really fun way to drive around the island and Francois is hugely knowledgable. He told us so many interesting facts about the fauna and wildlife that exists.

      Negatives: Seychelles has a lot of public holidays and we unknowingly booked our trip on one. Just about everything is shut on the island on the public holidays, meaning that we missed out on the rum distillery, the waterfalls, and finding somewhere decent to have lunch. With these key features missing, it was not good value for the high price. Really, Francois should have told us it was a public holiday in advance. We ended up in an expensive, tourist trap restaurant for lunch, and despite repeated requests, Francois didn't suggest a good place for us to swim - so we missed out on that too as the second half of the tour is through (beautiful) mountains.

      All in all, I imagine the tour would be great if it wasn't on a public holiday, so PLEASE check that yours isn't.

      The buggy was excellent, as cool as you’d expect. Francois is cool, the island is stunning. Lots of great photos and footage come out of this trip.

      However we went on a Sunday and I wish we were told in advance that the rum distillery is closed on weekends, that it was a public holiday so food was tough to find (apparently Seychelles have lots of PB’s) and that there hadn’t been any rain for a while so the waterfall was closed.

      One perk was that the Mountain View is free on public holidays.

      If everything had been open, I’m sure this would have been a mind blowing day.

      If we were told in advance, we could have tweaked the plan or changed the day but as it stood we were told at the start of the tour and just went from beach to beach. I think everyone was tired and bored by the end.

      For €150 per person, it’d be nice if a basic lunch was included or at least water.

      Also note that on top of your €150, you’ll need to pay for lunch and entry to all the other activities so it becomes a €250 day per person very quickly

      Because of the good reviews, we decided to do a tour of the island with Francois. What can we say? It was simply a completely successful day. We will remember the buggy ride forever, and of course Francois with his friendly and open manner.

      It was a wonderful trip that we couldn't have imagined better! For a small fee, we were picked up from our desired pick-up location and brought back there at the end.
      The buggy ride is great fun and is definitely recommended! We are very happy that we booked the trip in time and would definitely do it again if we fly to the Seychelles again! We were provided with food and lots of information about the culture and flora of Mahé.

      Thank you for this wonderful experience!
