I really enjoyed my tour of Mahe with James. The best way to explore the island and all its beautiful beaches is by car and since driving can be stressful for me I was really happy to have the comfort of a nice car and guide to show me around. James was wonderful - very knowledgeable, patient and a great person. He was thoughtful and gave good recommendations based on what I wanted to see. He is a good driver and was always on time and very friendly and informative. I was able to see so much in one day! Thank you for a great experience. I highly recommend this customized tour.

We ended up booking this activity because all the rental cars were fully booked during our stay on Mahe. Would definitely advise anyone to book a rental car in advance, you have plenty to see on the island. Even if it was more expensive than a regular rental car, we still enjoyed our 7.5 hours trip along the island with the driver. We told him a few beaches where we wanted to go and he advised us about which one of them are easily accessible from the road and which not (although at the beach from the Four Seasons hotel he made it seem a much shorter walk than it actually was, so we wasted a bit of time on those hills). At some point during the end of the trip it started raining heavily, so we changed plans and he took us to a viewpoint in the middle of the island and to a beach in some sunny part of the island instead. I think overall it was an ok trip, we would have wished for a bit more time and for the driver to be more open to telling stories / answering our curiosities.

All in all, a professional handling, even a short-term rebooking on the same morning would have been possible, as I was slightly injured while doing sports the day before. At the end we had a great & eventful day with our very personable and funny guide James, who at the end even let us enjoy the beach Intendance for 30 minutes longer :) Thank you again!
