During the busy New Years' weekend we were very fortunate to find Laurent available with only a few days notice. He was friendly, informative and flexible. We had a last minute change with a flight delay and he accommodated without problem. His day tour is affordable and he will let you choose the itinerary you want during your time with him.
We went to Valle de Mai and wanted to purchase a coco de mer. When we couldn't find one we wanted he took us to find a better one elsewhere. When we asked if we could add lunch on the beach to out half day morning tour he again said no problem. We even called him the evening before our morning flight back to Mahe and he came on time, bright and early. We feel like we made a friend in Praslin and wouldn't hesitate to call him again if we return. Thank you Laurent!

As someone who wanted to independently organise a trip from Praslin to La Digue, but who'd never travelled to the Seychelles before, I was a little unsure about who to book transfers with from my hotel to the Praslin jetty and back again. I emailed a few companies before leaving the UK to get an idea of booking availability, pricing and how payment would work.
Laurent's Taxi service got back to me very quickly and answered all of my questions in great English. I was able to book in the transfer dates and times all via email before I went on my trip. The pricing reflected what was listed on the website (which was very competitive) and it was confirmed that card payment (my preferred method) on the day was fine. Our driver turned up on time, was friendly and gave us some information about Praslin during both journeys. He went above and beyond to personally greet us when we stepped off the ferry from La Digue. I highly recommend this company and wish I had booked a couple of additional trips with Laurent's Taxi service during my week's stay on Praslin, as I was very impressed. Thank you!

Outstanding, prompt, professional service. Laurent, Colin, and Stephan were all an absolute pleasure to work with and really helped make our trip a joyful, relaxing one by taking away the stress that comes along with car service in a foreign country.

These guys know the island well, are knowledgeable as if they’re tour guides, fair in pricing, not pushy at all, go the extra mile to help you have a safe and comfortable trip, and most importantly, they show up when they say they will. If they give you a ride to the ferry terminal for your day trip to La Digue and tell you they’ll be there for your return, you can trust that they will be there.

The cars are spacious, clean, and modern and always cool with A/C.

Would highly recommend to anyone staying anywhere on Praslin.

We had a great time traveling with Laurent around Praslin. Laurent is super friendly, informative, and flexible. His explanations through the day were interesting. The prices he charges are cheaper than other drivers we checked but we couldn’t ask for more. Most importantly, Laurent drives safely.

During our trip, we used Laurent, and only Laurent as our means of getting around the island. We were so impressed with the airport pickup experience, we felt there was no need to go elsewhere. This is because Laurent is incredibly friendly, courteous, helpful, and has an impressive amount of local knowledge, which meant he acted as our quasi local tour guide too?! What a bonus. The roads on the island can be treacherous, but Laurent's driving is very smooth, and we felt safe at all times.
We used WhatsApp to make bookings, and he is very timely in replying, and managing expectations.

Highly recommended.

Laurent is the perfect Taxi driver and very recommendable. He drove us from and to the airport in his modern and well maintained car. He was also always on time!

Besides, he also is a very good tourguide. As we were happy with his services on the way from the airport to the hotel, we booked him for a half day tour all around Praslin. He showed us all the beautiful spots an the Island, shared endless stories and knowledge about Praslin and paid attention to our wishes.

The fact that he is reachable all the time via email and whatsapp comes in very handy to sort out all transport needs before coming to the seychelles. We will surely choose his services again and can recommend this friendly young man for all taxi drives and island tours. Thank you for your hospitality!

BA did not include transfer in the accommodation and it was around £100 extra for a barely 10 minute taxi ride .. but Laurentservices provided us with a €15 each way service easy to book, very courteous, lovely car, and you can contact him via WhatsApp. Furthermore, he booked us a transfer on the mainland to our next destination with a contact of his .. just as courteous and lovely vehicle, also half the cost of the BA transfer... I would thoroughly recommend if you don’t want to pay the BA fee. They both checked and confirmed our booking by WhatsApp, which is good when you forget everything because you are relaxing too much! Both Laurent and Steven were lovely.

We are very disappointed from this service. We booked some rides and tours with the car that is shown in the website. On the 1st day he sent another car that was very old and uncomfortable, without a notice in advance. We thought that it was an isolated incident. The 2nd day, he repeated it and it was a real disaster, because it was a full day tour, with an old, bumpy car, very uncomfortable and exhausting. Not to mention that we had our baby with us and it was very difficult to keep her calm, with all the bumping. When we complained about paying a service that was not provided as expected, he put the blame on us, for booking his "cheap" car, but when we booked him, he never gave us the option of both services! Very unprofessional, we wouldn't recommend him.

First of all, you refused to pay the full service, you were negotiating for a cheaper rate, so you never used my services, in this case I organised with an alternative company that agreed to do a full day tour for the rate you were asking for, as per your budget. The driver drove you around Praslin, a complete tour of the island and according to the driver you were satisfied at the end of the tour. However on behalf of Laurent's Taxi Service, We apologize that you were disappointed, hence we always try our utmost to satisfy our guests needs, however I sincerely hope that you understand that if you agreed to pay the full service, you would have received the car of your desire. In addition please note that I am hard working and honest, and my guests are always satisfied with my services.

We booked Laurent’s service several times when we had chartered a catamaran from Praslin. His drivers were always on time, and even when we could confirm our arrival time only last minute, we never had to wait for longer than 10 minutes for him to organize someone to pick us up. Communication is as quick and efficient via WhatsApp. Cars were spacious and clean. Would definitely use him again when we are back.

We were really pleased with our experience with Laurent. He was always punctable and told us a lot about the island and his life here.

I especially want to point out his flexibility. One time he drove us to Anse Lazio and we told him to pick us up at 4pm. At around 2pm it started raining heavily with no signs of getting better. When we walked back to where he dropped us off he was already standing there and waiting for us. This is really no matter of course and we were so thankful for that.

All in all, I can only say that I would always recommend using his service - no matter if for a short drive from the airport to the hotel or for a guided tour around the island. You will definitely be satisfied.
