What people are saying about Victoria, Seychelles

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.

Great tour that allowed us to see all the highlights of Mahe that interested us. All requests for what we wanted to see were addressed. The driver / guide James was very nice, explained everything and gave a lot of information - even beyond the knowledge of the guide. Thank you for a lovely, informative day. We can highly recommend.

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.

We had a lovely day with Colin. We landed very early in the morning and had to bridge the time to the ferry. Colin showed us the highlights of Mahe and responded to our wishes. There were local snacks and fresh coconut. All in all a great start to the holiday.

We had a safe and very nice driver who was also trained as a tourist guide. He told us a lot and detailed information about the whole island. The vehicle was very clean and well maintained
