        Great day trekking around Mahe’s beaches.
        Marlon was a fantastic guide for the day. He was patient and didn’t rush us around, enough time at each beach to get a good feel for them. Trip provides a great sample of the different beaches around the island and what makes them unique. He was very personable and offered to take many photos of us, excellent photographer too! We stopped to sample locale cuisine as we became hungry. Marlon is also a very safe driver. We’d recommend this trip to any first time visitor to Mahe’ and especially if Marlon is your guide.

        Awesome day!
        Excellent day tour to see the most we could on a cruise stop. We were a group of 2 couples and loved that it was a private tour just for us at a reasonable price. We booked direct by email with Jude, excellent communication and organisation, and the driver gave us the most he could, showing us all the sights we asked for plus more, and explained the customs and culture of the Seychelles. We were very impressed by the professionalism and great service we were given. Transport was very comfortable, and the whole day left us with many beautiful photo's and memories. Definitely recommend this company, nothing was too much trouble and we could tailor the tour to see what we were interested in. Thank you!

        Fabulous day with our wonderful guide in one of the most beautiful places we've ever seen
        Wonderful, relaxing day exploring the island. We were one adult, two kids, and our guide made sure to make the day fun and interesting for my girls, taking us to beautiful beaches and to see tortoises. The tour was approximately eight hours long and we covered the whole island. I highly recommend this company - they gave us a tour that was both educational and enjoyable. We left understanding why so many people fall in love with the Seychelles.

        Great tour around Mahe, relaxed & fun
        We booked a driver to show us some of Mahe on the afternoon before our late night flight departed for home. We booked with Jude by email / Whatsapp before we left home, EUR150 for the 2 of us. We had prepped ideas on where to go and Julio our driver put those into the best order to get the most out of our time. The vehicle was comfortable and air-conditioned and Julio was friendly and helpful, we were never rushed and saw all we'd hoped for. We went to the Domaine de Val des Pres Museum House (interesting) and Craft Village (lots of lovely craft shops to browse and buy from - with no pressure), then The Tea Tavern for a lovely fish n chip lunch (+ views and short tea factory tour), on to Mission View Point and the Spice Garden. As a bonus, the Spice Garden had lots of fruit bats flying around the late afternoon sky.

        1st Class Service
        . I arranged with Darel to be picked up from our hotel at 20.30 and James was there as asked and on time, another of The perfect courteous knowledgeable staff from this company, after seeing some of the drivers on the island I’m very glad I used this company for tours and transfer. If you need a transfer from the airport or any services I highly recommend them.

        A perfect tour
        Our guide, James was amazing! He was incredibly helpful, shared all the cool information about the places we visited and the history of the island. He took us to all the places we wanted to see, plus some more. His recommendations were great. All in all, it was a 4 hour trip, that we will never forget. We were truly amazed, and are really grateful for him for his patience and enthusiasm, and for showing us his home. We will definitely recommend this tour to our friends visiting the Seychelles!

        Not worth it
        Driver was late and wasn't told by his boss where to take us or that we even had a tour, so we almost missed the boat trip. Crew was nice enough, but we had to ask to see the tortoise and the snorkling was very short. The whole tour said 7 hours but only lasted 4. I tried to get a refund, but they declined

        The Tour was very well organized. The car was comfortable with good Aircondition. Our Tour Guide and Driver, Harry, was very competent and friendly. He proposed what to see and combined it with our wishes what we wanted to see to a very smooth and relaxing Tour. This Tour is an absolute recommendation if you want to see a lot of Mahe with competent and friendly explanations.

        Awesome Experience with Snorkeling and Local Cuisine
        Had a great day with Clifford, our guide, and Patrick, our boat captain. Transport from our hotel to the starting point in Victoria was quick and punctual. The boat was in good condition, the guide spoke very good English and very friendly. We went to a spot where fish gathered to be fed, then we went on to see the giant tortoises on Saint Anne island, then snorkeling for half an hour. Final stop was lunch on a beach restaurant with tasty creole buffet and a great selection of drinks. Overall it has been an awesome day and I wholeheartedly recommend it for anyone visiting!

        Flexible
        Very flexible private tour. We could stay as long as we wished in the places. Actually, some advice about what was about to come would be good, because we wanted to stay longer in all the places but we had no idea what to expect next. We had also a fantastic stop in a nice restaurant. Great food.

        Condense the highlights into a day
        The overall content was pretty good but as ever the absolute payback depends on your driver. He must be knowledgeable and a conversationalist in order to extract best value. Many highlights and certainly gives you a flavour of the history and culture of the island. You need to tell the guide exactly what your interests are I.e. shopping, natural sights, buildings, beaches etc. Plan your trip with your guide before you set off.

      James was our guide and I was picked up from the airport. Even though the tour started late (other guests' fault, not his), he kept the pace comfortable and met all our demands for photo ops, lunch etc without hesitation. Coming on this tour, I was not sure what to expect but James was splendid. Give this guy a raise!

      We were three couples visiting Mahe Island for the day while our cruise ship was there. Our tour guide was Jude and he picked us up and dropped us off at the port. What I really like about him is that he has perfect English, was very informative and was very flexible. He also has a great sense of humor. He also gave us a clear picture of life in the Seychelles and was willing to deviate from his standard tour in any way we wished. He found us a great seafood restaurant on the water for lunch. He also understood the need for timelines as we needed to get back to the ship on time!

      We booked a full day tour of Mahe and our guide Darel turned up promptly at our hotel. We were taken round most of the island. We had regular stops to visit the highlights of Mahe. The tour was not rushed and we left a location once everyone was ready to go. Darel was a fantastic guide, very friendly and helpful , an excellent ambassador for the Seychelles.We visited Beau Valon beach, Takamaka beach and several other beaches. We also stopped at Victoria and a tea factory. Darel gave us a great insight into Mahe and personalised it by showing parts of the island where he had grown up. When we stopped at the botanical gardens it was very busy so he took us to an alternative garden in the south of the island. The tour is great value for money and I would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Mahe.

      Great way to see the island as the tour takes you to all the highlights, including Victoria town and market, the beaches and viewpoints, botanical gardens, the Mission, the rum factory etc. Although it was not a private tour, it was a small group of 6, and the driver also took us to the Spice gardens at our request, although we had to pay the entrance fee. Skilful driver taking all the curves and bends in the road and up the hills.

      This was a perfect tour from start to finish with harry, who had asked where we would like to go and then
      Suggested other places on top of the places we suggested picked us up from the hotel 9.30 when we were told that we would be picked up, when he dropped us off in Victoria as we wanted to look about the capital and go for lunch, he had asked how long we wanted and
      When he would pick us up, he was there waiting for us at the time we had said,harry is so courteous and knowledgeable, This company should not be overlooked during your holiday they will cover most things.
      I have also asked them to do a airport transfer for when we leave, I highly recommend this company for all your transfers and tours.

      Being in Seychelles without a car can be tricky, so this tour was exactly what I was looking for. Guide took us to all the spots that might be difficult to find on my own and took the time to explain the history and everything else the group wanted to know about. The places/sights were interesting enough to warrant spending a day on this - really good value for money.
