We really enjoy the experience. I think it is a great value for your money. The lunch was good with grilled chicken and tuna. The driver pick us up from the hotel on time and was there when we arrived. We didn’t need to wait. In the boat there is not so much space, so don’t bring so much luggage. I recommend bringing you own water shoes and swimming glasses. In General really friendly personal and overall a nice organized tour.

Driving around Mahe with James was a great experience. He introduced Seychelles and it’s history perfectly and managed to make our trip enjoyable despite the heavy rain that day. I would definitely recommend this trip to learn more about the country and the everyday life of the locals.

Great experience. Polite crew at your service, nice and new boat, good food. You have a chance to see some turtles in the wild, snorkel, and see/photo fish under water thanks to semi submarine.

Great experience, our driver was super and we loved chatting with him.

Ogni esperienze perfetta, ben organizzata di buon gusto
