Very highly recommend this tour! Our guide Cristopher was amazing. He very quickly understood the things we liked to see and he said soo many cool stuff about history and most amazingly plants. As a doctor I was very interested in traditional herbal medicine so the spice graden was amazing. Chris was very fun and easy to chat with. We thought a lot about booking this tour for financial reasons but the cost was very worth it and not at all high for what we got, we couldnt have seen and learned soo many things going by ourselves. Thank you so mutch!

We highly recommend this tour! While looking expensive (in comparison to taking the bus around the island), it is fully worth the money. Christopher is a great, kind, patient, punctual (!!) and knowledgeable guide. He guides you through all the destinations (e.g. through the colonial houses but also through the jardin du toi) that you choose to visit and explains them all very well. After the day, you know everything you need to know about life on Seychelles. You can fully decide on your own which places you want to visit.

Our driver, Christopher, created a route from our desired destinations and drove it with us. This meant we were able to experience the whole island in one day. On the way, Christopher gave us lots of information about the history, country and culture and answered all our questions. We would travel the island with Christopher again in a heartbeat.

Great trip, highly recommended to anyone that does not want to lose time during holidays :) Amazing local tour guide showed us all the places we wanted to see and gave some additional info about history and local flora, wonderful trip

Our driver Christopher made this day very special. We higly recomend Christopher he a was a save driver and showed us many speciel places around the Island .
