Press Release from 15.09.2021
Wonderful guided tours with Sheena Jean to the most beautiful places on Mahé.
Fantastic sandy beaches, bright sunshine, happy people – that’s how Europeans imagine the Seychelles. And that’s exactly how it is. The island paradise in the Indian Ocean has much to offer that is good for stressed holidaymakers. The beautiful landscapes, the abundance of plants and the crystal-clear sea are perfect for spending a relaxing holiday. And to make the most wonderful time of the year an all-round success, it is best to let a real professional show you around the Seychelles – preferably on a guided as well as private tour.
Sheena Jean, a native Seychelloise, has made it her mission to show holidaymakers the beauty of her homeland, and only on the main island of Mahé, which she specialises in. “You only get to see all the insider tips on a private tour with a licensed tour guide,” Sheena Jean knows. She not only has all the necessary licences and certificates, but is also currently the only woman to offer licensed tours in the Seychelles. And because nowadays the health of the guests is very important, Sheena Jean makes sure that only registered guests are present. Strangers or unregistered third parties in overcrowded buses do not exist with the responsible entrepreneur.
Special tours for a fantastic holiday experience
Sheena Jean’s tours are something very special, her guests agree, as many enthusiastic reviews on Google or TripAdvisor prove. “I don’t just offer simple island tours on Mahé, but also hikes and walks to extraordinary places on Mahé.”
The tours are mainly in English, although French is equally feasible and basic German skills are available thanks to a 3-month language training course through Inlingua in Germany.
It happens again and again in the Seychelles that taxi companies offer tours for holiday guests although they are neither qualified nor licensed tour guides. The owner of Island Tour Seychelles is often surprised: “I can only advise against getting involved in such an unprofessional tour,” says Sheena Jean. “What might look like a good deal at first glance is actually not worth the money. Only the certified tour guides are a guarantee that you get to know the real highlights of the islands, get the right information and are on safe paths.”
To make sure their guests feel well taken care of, Island Tours Seychelles is certified by the Seychelles Tourist Board, licensed by the Seychelles government and, of course, has liability insurance for emergencies. And it goes without saying that Sheena Jean, as an experienced tour guide, always takes up-to-date first-aid courses.
The right island tour for every taste with the only female tour guide
The beauties of Mahé cannot be ticked off in a single tour. The island has far too much to offer. The individual tour offers are therefore sensibly coordinated and offer just the right thing for all tastes.
How about a Rockpool tour, for example? To visit it is only possible with a guided tour, because the Rockpool is also difficult to find. The hike through the unique landscape is easy to do and offers an unforgettable experience.
Those interested in the culture of the Seychelles are well advised to take a guided tour of Victoria. As one of the smallest capitals in the world, it has interesting architecture to offer in addition to museums, markets, the Clocktower and Botanical Gardens.
Unique is the buggy tour for 2 adults, it is only available once in the Seychelles. “I am particularly proud of this,” says Sheena Jean. “The tour is accompanied by François, who is equally able to accommodate special requests on this day tour and show guests exactly what they want.”
The Soul Flower Tour is combined with a workshop to learn the ancient craft of sun printing. Participants create their own pareo, which they can then keep as a souvenir of the Seychelles. The beach tour takes those interested to the most beautiful beaches of Mahé, e.g. the Petit Anse at the Four Seasons Hotel, and invites them to swim, snorkel or relax.
And for those who want to get a big overview, the island tour is the right thing to do. Gorgeous viewpoints, an exciting spice garden, the Sauzier waterfall, Anse Intendance beach, markets or a tasting at the Takamaka Rum Distillery are just a few of the many points to see.
“My tours can be planned individually,” Sheena Jean emphasises. “Whether it’s nature or culture, leisure fun with cocktails on the beach or hikes through the unspoilt countryside – my guests can choose from a wide range of options what they enjoy most.”
