During our stay on Mahe Island we booked a one day excursion to go from Mahe to Praslin And La Digue. We were picked up at 6.00 a.m. (the bus driver was running late, app.15 min) by a bus and taken to Victoria port where we embarked on a ferry to Praslin which took us a good hour (despite being...

We had a great time on the Anahita, snorkeling, viewing fish and tortoises while exploring Moyenne Island and swimming in the gorgeous Seychalles waters. Our guide, Calisse was very knowledgeable and friendly which made our hike on the island something to remember. All day adventure was great despite the wind and choppy seas. Snorkeling was a bit of a challenge... More

Our package was through Etihad. Mason tours partners with Etihad. They were at the airport and offered additional tours. The tour we wanted on Friday and not available on the weekend. Stefano made arrangements for a driver on Friday. And booked us a tour to the other island similar to theirs with another tour company. That was really nice. On... More

Historical grand tour of the island and full day out. Informative freindly guide and steady bus driver. Lots to see, Spice Garden probably highlight. Be sure to carry cash for planned stops at tourist and souvenir shops. Also carry own bottled water.

This company provided the resort representative cover for TravelBag. Be it Lester at our hotel,taxi service or tours the service they provided was superb. Many thanks to all the staff we came in contact with.

Mason's is a well organized and run outfit in Seychelles. They were our local tour operators in Mahe, Praslin and La Digue. The arrangements were great they took care of it all. In Mahe, we particularly enjoyed the company of our guide Mr. Pearly Constance. He was very knowledgeable of Mahe and made sure we soaked it all.

We took the reef safari tour and the Praslin/La Digue full day tour. We had an amazing experience on both the outings. On the reef safari, I need to make a special mention of Francis. He was very helpful and entertaining. The boat anchored far from the reef and we had to swim a great deal for snorkeling. I know... More

Mason's Travel was very weak in providing good transport facility to us during our stay at the island. First, we did not receive transport from airport to hotel Berjaya inspite of our booking.
