Nice tour of Mahe island. We were notified to be in the hotel lobby at 9:30am 1.5 hours before the tour start time. I find something very exaggerated. The guide was there almost on time at 9:30 am. There were only four of us, all Germans. The driver drove well and was very friendly. Unfortunately, he said very little about the island. We had to ask everything, and he had good answers. At the stops we were asked when we wanted to leave again. Unfortunately none of us knew what to do there. We arrived at the rum factory at 11:30 am. The tours start at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. So we couldn't take part in any. The rum tasting costs about 9 euros extra, although the internet says that all entrance fees are included in the price. Should at least be listed as an option, as with other offers.

James was our guide - excellent, I must say. He made additional suggestions where we could go besides our planned spots. He also stopped for showing us certain plants or when he noticed we wanted to take pictures. He is very attentive and has good knowledge of the Seychelles in any way. An absolute recommendation !!!

Altough the tour was started with a bit delay, I had an amazing experience seeing the attractions of Mahé with our guide, CME Tours and Transfers' owner, Darel. North coast, Victoria, South, Takamaka distillery, tea factory and so many more - made real with many personal stories about life on the island. The schedule is tigth for having a longer swim on most beaches, but we still had some time on Takamaka. Definitely recommended for travellers who want to fit many attractions in a single day!
